Tonight at 10PM (Saturday 14th December 2013), the chatroom will be open to all comers who want to watch the classic Christmas film “Trading Places”. After talking about it with Theory77 last week and listening to the intro music in the show, it got the old juices flowing and an idea popped up. So, Repo and I will be in the chatroom at 10PM tonight… So, grab your DVD/VHS/Betamax/Bluray or digital file (if you haven’t got it, go here: http://tinyurl.com/q8wt7pl (don’t tell anyone!), link & file will be deleted at 10PM).
There’s a thread on FaceBook if you want to weigh in, have a look on my timeline: http://facebook.com/discoscratch
Now at 10pm on the button we will be playing the movie and chatroom is open to all comers who want to be social about the film… hope to see some of you in the chat! Chatroom address is http://discoscratch.co.uk/chat grab your eggnog/tramp juice and meet us there! Peace out & merry Christmas!
So who's getting into the Christmas spirit? What better choice of film could there ever be!
Trading Places holds a special place in my heart as I was a big fan of Dan Aykroyd having liked his work on The Blues Brothers, Twilight Zone - The Movie and of course, Ghostbusters (yes, I know it came out after TP but in those days we got whatever was to hand at the local video rental shop). And the fact that Eddie Murphy was so great in it (and would go on to become my go-to 80's funnyman) didn't hurt either.
From the opening intro (Mozart's Marraige Of Figaro) to the feelgood ending this could be the ultimate 80's movie. This decade truly came up with some of the best films, didn't it? Or maybe it's just my rose-tinted specs....
Don't be late. 10pm is curtain-up.
