Another board game we had:
THE HAWAIIAN PUNCH GAME (1978)
Based on the commercial for Hawaiian Punch with the guy who literally punches people into orbit (lovely gimmick).  Uses a Play-doh "pineapple maker" to make the players' markers.  At certain moments an opponent can SQUISH your marker and you have to start over or at an earlier space on the board; I can't remember for certain.  But it was a scream!

This game terrified the absolute bejeezus out of me:
OPERATION (1965)
We got it way later than the original date (I wasn't born then).  Something about that angry dude and the loud buzzing sound and his freakish glowing nose.. just put me in an incurable state of panic!  And this 70s commercial was on ALL the time to reinforce my terror..
! No longer available Small | Large

DIGITAL DERBY (1978)
Little handheld game in which you steer a car at the bottom out of the way of oncoming traffic.  Lap counter and timer included.  A buzz and a red flash is shown during a collision.
! No longer available Small | Large

I think I got this for my 10th birthday.. what a cool LCD game/calculator/stopwatch/more handheld!  I recently bought it at a gaming expo!
EPOCH MAN (1981)

Not a toy per se but I may have gotten this the following year for Christmas.
TEXAS INSTRUMENTS 99 (1981)
Mine was white, had no floppy drive and ran on a black & white tv.

And my grandparents (rip) got me this handheld version of a game I was nuts about back in the day:
CRAZY CLIMBER (1981), by Bandai

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012) - I really liked Aubrey Plaza in The To Do List which was a sort of ... American Pie but more east coasty/ SNL sort of comedy thing. This has a similar vibe but is slightly more dramatic. Also, I don't know where the title comes from. Safety isn't guaranteed in ...life and love or something? Whatever, it's a good movie.

Plaza, which is an odd name that makes me think of a toll plaza, is an intern at a Buzzfeed type magazine. They get an idea to do a story on a guy who takes out a classified ad looking for a time travel partner. Her boss shows her the ropes of the journalism field which is basically do whatever and charge as much as you can to your expense account and then make a half assed effort to do the story. As this happens she takes her own route and befriends the guy and so forth. There's a geeky/ horny Indian intern who they throw in for variety and comic relief.

Overall it's intelligent and funny though elements of it feel tossed off and rush. Different things, intimacy between people, just kind of happen and the viewer is left to figure out what it means. It's definitely something different for me though. I'm not really up on what's going on in like liberal comedy movie making indy sort of circles.

4/5

edit: oh now I see where the title comes from. they didn't really mention it in the movie though

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
