McNeil's Movie Korner, With Extra Mayo

Welcome once again to "McNeil's Movie Korner" - your one place on the "internet" for all the latest movie news and reviews. McNeil recently watched STARFLIGHT: THE PLANE THAT COULDN'T LAND. "I found a review from 2-25-83 on the NYT website titled 'A Big Night for Movies,'" McNeil writes. "Apparently that was a Sunday night and the networks were battling for ratings with STARFLIGHT, the tv premiere of 9 TO 5, and a Dennis Weaver movie about cocaine addiction that sounds great called COCAINE: ONE MAN'S SEDUCTION. Those were the days." McNeil says that STARFLIGHT: THE PLANE THAT COULDN'T LAND "has some of the worst ideas for space rescues ever." In addition, McNeil has been reading about mayonnaise on the "blog" and says that his mom's attitude is the direct opposite of my mom's attitude toward the controversial condiment: "My mom would put (and still puts) mayo on anything, anywhere, no matter the weather," McNeil claims. "Independence Day deviled eggs can bake in the afternoon sun for hours and it doesn't bother her." McNeil concludes with a suspicious anecdote: "Sometimes I'll even catch a plate of deviled eggs warming on a window sill before a Thanksgiving meal."
