Save the MinXus Saturday Night Bunk House Cinema Series

After Dark wall quit (or was he fired? It’s not clear) hosting the Saturday Night Bunkhouse Cinema Series earlier this week, the feature is left without direction and threats of cancelation have been uttered. This is the first and probably only time the Empress is hosting the Saturday Night Cinema Series, so please go get your giant Gulp, sit down and try to watch as much as you can bear.

Worth waiting for. As an appetiser, the legendary scene from Ice Cold In Alex (1958)

The kiss compilation. After last week’s strippers I think we need something torridly romantic. Like kisses. Lots of kisses. This is the final scene from Cinema Paradiso, where director Salvatore comes back to his native village and gets a present from former friend and projectionist Alfredo: all the kisses censored by the local priest (much to the outrage of the audience) back in the days of his childhood’s Sunday Cinema. Maybe the movie played a little too much on emotional manipulation, but those vintage kisses are… quite nice.

Vox Pop. In case you haven’t left yet, a bit of good old British comedy the way we like it. You might need subtitles (no not really).

He says he wants to buy you flowers. And to finish the evening with elegance, a classic moment of French embarrassment. Whitney Houston meets Serge Gainsbourg. I don’t know if he was drunk or not. He might look and sound like a creep but he was nonetheless a genius. A classic of the french 80’s. How embarrassing, though…

You are probably all gone by now…..

    You done so good we’re making your Hostess spot permanent – just kidding.

    You and Dw did a great job reviving the series. look at all the Tenderfoots pouring in here every minute now.

    But it did need a woman’s touch. No more strippers.

    You, me & the Empress – all for one and one for all. Well, I figure the Empress is the third wheel if it just had to be two of us.

    I had no intention of watching daytime internet films on MinXus tv but I was prevented from seeing it when it was first launched as we rented a flat in Edinburgh that wouldn’t let you social network! Luckily I am back and no one knows what I do in the studio. I WATCHED THE WHOLE THING and vote for the empress to do the programming hereto forth. I meant to watch all of Aja.

    No kidding, Rebecca? You watched all of it? Seriously? I have to say we are blessed with the best Tenderfoots ever.

    Miss Becca, deepest thanks for your continued support of the cinema series. (And many thanks to Miss Carina too.)

    The Empress has declined an offer to be permanent hostess. This week we must turn the programming back to Dark wall (who has been forbidden to post stripper videos and who must adhere to the highest values and aesthetics you expect from MinXus-Lynxus.)

    We trust the Empress will remian in an advisory capacity.
