I lost a bet to my dad a while back and so I have to watch Eraserhead. Since my business card reads "Movie/Child Lover" (don't ask), I try to stay open-minded about all movies. But even for someone as accepting as me, it's difficult to not have preconceived notions when I choose which film I'm going to watch.
Here are some examples:
Gene Hackman - Any movie with Gene has the potential to be great but is practically guaranteed to not suck. Can you think of a role Gene Hackman wasn't good in? Me neither.
Al Pacino - Yelling.
Jean Claude Van Damme - There will be fighting, bad dialogue and at least one split. Probably a kick or two.
Kevin Smith - Smart, snappy dialogue, static shots and at least one Ben Affleck hooker joke.
Tim Burton - Enchanting imagery and a better than fair chance that Johnny Depp will make an appearance.
Carrot Top - Sucks.
All of this is my long winded way of asking if you have any thoughts, stories, interesting comments to make on Eraserhead. I'd kind of like to know what I'm getting into. After all, it is a David Lynch movie.
