Short Circuit review

I also forgot to mention that last night I watched the fine film Short Circuit (John Badham, 1986). Jeff received it recently from his folks. That's some fine cinema. Retro-futuristic high tech comedy with a good message, way over the top in true 1980's style. It even has shots of CJ-5's and CJ-7's in action! Not to mention what must have been on of the earliest cinematic appearances of an Apple. I believe it was a Macintosh Plus, shown with its distinctive Apple carton, but it's not on screen for long. Check it out, you might enjoy hearing: "your mother was a snowblower!" for the first time since elementary school. Or maybe I'm just feeling nostalgic for my youth.
