    Delivery Boys

    ★★★

    Break-dancing pizza delivery boys have one crazy, Mario Van Peebles-induced day in Delivery Boys, the other bizarrely fun 1985 New York movie in which a dude is turned into a statue.

    Madballs: Gross Jokes

    ★★

    The only time I laughed was when the first segment, which takes place in a hospital, made me recall when, in 1986, I was given a Madball and a Masters of the Universe figure, most likely in a Toys "R" Us bag, as gifts "from" my newborn brother, in a hospital room, based on a suggestion from some baby book.

    "It's only a dummy, dummy! Happy Halloween!"

    It appears that Mother Nature won't permit us to put out our dummies and fog machines this year. Bummer. I can still watch 31-year-old Halloween-set straight-to-video slashers as a way to tune out the sound of ceaseless Halloween rain.

    I would say that Hack-O-Lantern is exactly what I needed after straying from the '80s path for 30 days. This flick did the trick; it's a fun little '80s treat.
