Weird Science

In an effort to both serve our readers and help support The A.V. Club, we are going to post daily links to deals and interesting items that we find over on Amazon. If you use these links to click through and buy something—not just the thing you clicked—on Amazon, we will see a portion of that income. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, but if you do, know that we appreciate it.

Wall Street, Romancing The Stone, First Daughter, and more ($3.99 to rent, $6.99 to buy)

Romancing The Stone


Amazon’s having a sale on “adventure” movies, and while Katie Holmes’ adventures as the daughter of the president in First Daughter aren’t exactly breathtaking, there are a number of great or at least entertaining movies for sale, including The Last King Of Scotland and My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

Stand By Me, Back To The Future, Weird Science, and more ($3.99 to rent, $7.99 to buy)

Amazon is also having a sale on classic ’80s films like those listed above and others, including Short Circuit, War Games, and Real Genius.

Video game sequels are so hot right now.

Revell GMC pickup with snowplow plastic model ($16.40)


Winter is coming. Why not spend some time building this detailed snowplow model?

96-disc organizer ($14.95)


Those big black CD binders are so passé.

Pro mini basketball hoop ($19.99)


Add some pizzazz to your office’s most boring conference room.

Lobster-hooded baby towel ($16.40)


Ha ha, that baby looks like a lobster.

Marshall compact fridge ($299.99)


It’s a mini-fridge, but it looks like an amp. We don’t like the term “man cave,” but if any fridge seems apt for that kind of room, it’s this one.
