Did you feel it?
Did you feel the tingling?
It’s a little known fact that the word causes a biological reaction in the gay brain, resulting in a tingling sensation, followed by an involuntary “Squee!,” culminating in what’s scientifically referred to as a Chergasm.
Well get ready for an all-out Cherplosion (I promise that’s my last Cher pun) with the November 2nd release of “Cher: The Film Collection.”
The box set contains six Cher films: Good Times, Chastity, Silkwood, Moonstruck, Mermaids and Tea With Mussolini.
Wait a minute. What?
I agree that Silkwood, Moonstruck, Mermaids, and the underrated Tea are must-haves, but those first two movies should have stayed in the time capsule, especially when there are so many other classic Cher films to pick from. I realize that they may not have had the “rights” or whatever to include them, but that’s not going to stop my hackles from raising.
Let’s take a look at some of the Cher essentials they missed!
Oops. Wrong mask.
How could they not include 1985′s Mask? It proved once and for all that Cher had dramatic chops, as she played the feisty mother of Rocky Dennis with strength and heart (and with the help of the friendliest sleazy biker gang in film history).
Of course it’s impossible to think of Mask without thinking of the obvious snub Cher received at the Academy Awards. And it’s impossible to think of that snub without thinking of her appearance at the Oscars and her classic line “As you can see, I did receive my Academy booklet on how to dress like a serious actress.”
