What is in your pull list this week?
One of the weirdest movies from my childhood is airing on COMET TV this month. The Garbage Pail Kids Movie is gross out, disgusting, off the wall, zany, bizarre, unsettling, and hysterical. Made in the late 80s, the comedy is adapted for the cult card series (& stickers) of the same name from Topps Company (see examples of below).
The series was a parody of Cabbage Patch Kids (which basically owned the 80s in terms of children’s dolls/collectibles).
Official Description: Based on the wildly popular and irreverent trading cards, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie stars Mackenzie Astin (“The Facts of Life”) as a perfectly nice teenager who discovers the Kids… to his disgust! When Dodger (Astin) accidentally releases the Kids from their magical trash can prison, all smell breaks loose. Despite their offensive personal habits – and attitude problems – Dodger soon becomes fond of the Kids. But when Messy Tessie, Foul Phil, Valerie Vomit and the whole misfit crew join his fight against thuggish bullies, their efforts just might land them behind bars at the State Home for the Ugly! (MGM)
The movie has a 0% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but don’t let that stop you from watching. Everyone should check this out at least once, what what better way to do so than for free on an online TV network? Check out Garbage Pail Kids Movie on Saturday, May 13th at 2pm et and on Thursday, May 18th at midnight et.

Ethan Hawke and Jude Law stars in this sci-fi tale about a genetically inferior man who passes himself off as a “superior” man in order to travel into space.
I love when we reach the future. Cherry 2000 takes place “in the year 2017”. Watch to find out how close we are to this future world of robot wives and lawless regions.
