When Time Ran Out... (1980) (part 6 of 8)

At Mona’s, everyone runs out into the street, only to get knocked to the ground by a tremor. Tiny drops the rooster and runs after it. Sam, Mona, and two of the whores pile into a Suburban. Yeah, don’t offer anybody else a lift in your spacious cargo area. Meanwhile, Tiny and Kelly chase their stupid rooster up and down the street far too many times. I hope Alex could chase a football better than he could this rooster.

Ladies and gentleman, Tiny and The New Pepsi Generation dancers!

This display of inanity displeases the loa gods, so a giant tidal wave a good 400 feet high is sent crashing down on them and the rest of the town. Would it really be that high? I know there’s always a tidal wave that comes in after these island volcanoes erupt, but the most I remember hearing about was maybe 60 to 100 feet high.

If I was a bad movie, I'd find it much easier to write about myself than I do at present. My main interests outside of really bad movies is playing music. I've played guitar for 15 years, performed before far more people than I'm really comfortable with and am currently having fun listening to my 5 year old son bang away on his new starter drum set. Yes, drummers are so hard to find, I had to resort to making my own. When not playing music, I also like to work in my yard and many gardens, try new recipes (never would have thought that would happen), research my genealogy (I get to be related to the beheaded king and queen of France!) and read history books primarily about natural disasters and personal tales. And when I'm not doing any of that, then I'm spending time with my great family. The first movie I remember going to the theater to see was The Black Stallion which we were late to the beginning of and as we were waiting for it to begin again and rewatch it (is that even legal?) we got dragged away by my dad and sister who insisted we come watch Airplane! with them in the other theater. Oh, and I cried so hard at the end of Oh, Heavenly Dog! that my sister had to call my mom to come pick me up. As a kid, I never had a Big Wheel. I still want one.
