Rock-afire Explosion: A Good One #64
A well-made but quirky documentary that exhausts the minutia of the 80's animatronic music band that was the centerpiece of (now Chuck E. Cheese) Showbiz Pizza Place. Overlong by half, what initially seems like a pleasant trip down Memory Lane quickly becomes obsessive, maudlin, and creepy. I watched it on Hulu, and you can watch it below. If you dare.
BTW, good luck with those nightmares filled with mechanical puppets and their blank soul-less eyes and the stuttering movements as they clamber after you in the night. Oh, that was just me? Ok then.
