Bee warned the following list is full of extremely unfunny insect related puns and Pearl & Dean can not be held responsible for any damage to your health from reading it. And with
'The Green Hornet' out this week, it was only fitting to show our love to the flying honey lovers, so here are Pearl & Dean's Top 5 Movie Bees.
Ok so not strictly a bee in the insect form but it just wouldn't feel right not including this Bumblebee! From the Transformers universe, this is a yellow and black Autobot, or in other words a goodie which is something the word bumblebee is not often associated with.
But of course this isn't a creature that will sting you when you try to swat it, but in fact a beautiful looking car that transforms (shock horror!) into an alien robot in order to protect us all! How cool is that? Though who knows how many miles to the gallon it does!
From alien robots to a human loving, talking Bee. And when we say human loving we mean falling head of heels for an actual fully grown woman, very weird, even for a Kids Movie!
Released in 2007 this insect named Barry B. Benson (oh dear) was voiced by the usually so funny Jerry Seinfeld. It was a pretty decent movie with the odd few hilarious gags and Barry was by far the funniest. But let's not even mention Seinfeld's cringe worthy appearance as the Bee at the 80th Academy Awards, still can't Beelieve it really happened...Sorry.
Who hasn't dreamed of being shrunk to a 1/4 of an inch, attacked by a bee and forced to cling to it for dear life while it weaves around your garden, at least once in their lifetime?
Well fortunately for Nick Szalinski and Little Russ Thompson their dream became reality in 1989, because we all know Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is based on a true story right? While this classic family comedy is starting to show its age a little in the special effects department, this scene when Nick and Russ ride the back of the Bee is still the bee's knees.
This 2006 release, a remake of the 1973 British horror of the same name, is another one to add to the ever growing list of rather strange movies starring Nicolas Cage. Panned by the critics, the only redeeming feature of The Wicker Man remake, rather sadistically, is the mask of bees scene.
Edward Malus (Cage) is captured by an island cult and tortured by having a mask strapped to his face while angry bees are dropped inside! Malus then screams "Not the bees! AHHHHHHH! My eyes! My eyes! AHHHHHHHH! AHHHHHHH!", which comes off rather comically and thus has seen numerous YouTube techno remixes, beecause it's the right thing to do.
Here's a question for you, what can blow-up a Nuclear Power-Plant, derail a train down a mountain, bring down a helicopter and murder innocent children all at the same time? Don't know? Well a swarm of African killer bees of course silly!
Yep that's right our winner of the Greatest Ever Movie Bees is the 1978 movie classic The Swarm. But when we say classic what we really mean is the worst disaster movie ever made. But hey at least it gave us some laughs even though it wasn't suppose to.
The most shocking thing of the whole movie, no not the acting or special effects, but the fact it starred Michael Caine, yes Michael Caine, the Zulu, Italian Job, Get Carter, Michael Caine!!!
If you are ever in need of cheering up then just stick on The Swarm, its guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, you'll be beedazzled :-)
