Hi, I'm Gordy. Wanna play?
That's the question that the precocious Gordy has asked of Mitch (known to suffer from Pediophobia) and Cross. We go to the origin story of our favourite pint sized killer doll. The many sequels have become notorious for a variety of reasons, but how does the original stand up to the 3 Men scrutiny? Will they all be friends till the end?
1984 brought us many fine things but This is Spinal Tap surely ranks among the finest. Its genuine charm and affection for the subject matter is a joy to behold even as they exploit with subtle wit every code and convention the documentary genre and the 80's heavy Rock scene has to offer.
Gordy, of course, hadn't seen it. Surely he, being a Hard Rock fan, would love it.....?
Adapted from Poet Laureate Ted Hughes' book, The Iron Man, and directed by Brad Bird, this week's movie never really found the audience it deserved on initial release. Mitch loves it to bits, but what will Gordy and Cross make of it?
