I never thought it’d be so easy for you to download audio proof of my dorkitude that ends with the sound of me watching one of my most beloved childhood treasures get destroyed. No, really, I wigged out. Like… a lot. Kind of inappropriately. I may have called for the destruction of a vineyard.
I’d been bugging the Film Pigs to do The Outsiders for years, and once they started their DVD Commentary Podcasts, I couldn’t stop little-sistering them to A) Do one of my favorites and B) Let me participate, because I was tired of getting kicked out of the house every time they got together to eat Bagel Bites and cap on films.
So they let me join them this time. I have a feeling I won’t be asked back.
Of course, this is the day my voice decided to go, and it was packing a suitcase throughout this film.
The Outsiders (1983)
The Film Pigs sit down with S.E. Hinton’s classic tale of cuddle-prone and generally shirtless street punks on the run for the self-defense murder of an Abercrombie & Fitch catalog model. Hugs!
SPECIAL NOTE: This commentary is for “The Outsiders – The Complete Novel (Two-Disc Special Edition)” DVD – not the theatrical release. Special features include deleted scenes and an all-new score, which sounds like the same 8-bars of surf music repeated incessantly. It’s so inappropriate for the movie we thought it was going to give our first guest commentator, Pamela Ribon, a heart attack or something.
