“Make Love, Not War” in Cheesy Sci-fi Form: Barbarella

Dear Tor.com, are you in a primitive state of neurotic irresponsibility? I know I am! But never fear, the Movie Rewatch of Great Nostalgia has the cure! Or something!

Previous entries can be found here. Please note that as with all films covered on the Nostalgia Rewatch, this post will be rife with spoilers for the film.

And now, the post!

Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Childhood Trauma Here: Poltergeist

It’s HEEE-ERRRR! The Movie Rewatch of Great Nostalgia, that is! And with a special switcheroo treat—or trick, depending on your point of view!

So, yeah: for reasons both too complicated and too boring to get into, it turns out I totally lied in the last post’s epilogue about what the MRGN is covering next, and uh, also forgot to update the last post to tell you that. Sorry? I love you?

But nevertheless, I hope you will forgive me, and also still join me for my very nostalgic and eminently Halloween-season-appropriate review of My First Horror Flick, 1982’s Poltergeist!
