Suave Charlton HestonSo long, Mr. Heston. In honor of a man who has brought so many smiles to me and my friends, I propose the first annual HESTFEST!© The first annual HESTFEST!© will consist of popcorn and the following movies (in no particular order):

  • Touch of Evil
  • Earthquake (The Nudge will refuse to watch this)
  • Planet of the Apes
  • The Omega Man (My wife, Miranda Kopfschmertzen’s favorite film. So much her favorite that one might say its her favourite.

“Soylent Green is PEOPLE!”

    I will be in attendance at Hestfest! 2008. You will know me by my rad ’70s jumpsuit that I wear while hunting The Family by day.

    You quote Soylant Green and yet you do not offer it up at Hestfest? For shame!

    Sooooo many better choices to go with over Earthquake: “Greatest Show on Earth,” “The Naked Jungle,” “The Big Country,” with Burl Ives and Gregory Peck.

    And no “El Cid?” For shame, for shame!
