I'm somewhat embarrassed to say I have never seen:

Some Kind of Wonderful-(on my Craig to do list though)
Something Wild
Night of the Creeps
Howard the Duck-(I'm sure I tried, but just couldn't do it)
Ferris Bueller's Day Off-(impossible to believe but true)
Highlander

There's many more, but those are definitely some of the must sees-(except for the Duck of course) [Smile]

Since you are a huge Craig Sheffer fan from "Fire With Fire".. you probably want to hold off on watching "SKOW" because it might just change your romantic opinion of him. Of course, "SKOW" is Paul's all-time fav and you might lose log-in access if you don't hurry up and watch it. - Joking aside "Some Kind of Wonderful" is an awesome movie and I actually like it better than "Pretty In Pink".

In the meantime.. rush out and find "Night of the Creeps" it is a hidden gem.

I'm starting to think nothing will compare with his role in FWF-he seems to play a lot of oppositional roles. My son signed us up for netflix so I should be able to catch up on everything-and then some [Smile]

Well, of the list there's really only two movies you should be 'embarrassed' not to have seen, since they're both stone-cold classics and (coincidentally) both John Hughes movies. The others are fairly well known, but only 'Highlander' was a hit. 'Night of the Creeps' is one of those movies that most people hadn't even heard of until the internet told them it existed (it is a good movie).

Your list of shame is only really two movies long! I envy you watching them both!

I'm not able to sit through most of them (except Toxie)-though I vaguely remember Lemmy from Motorhead being in it.

Love 16 Candles
Killer Klowns is the best!
The Shining is good-lots of memorable scenes.
Saw Supergirl in the theater-must have evaporated out of my head immediately after though [Smile]

I have never seen (dare I say it) The Goonies!

You saw Supergirl at the theaters and you've never seen The Goonies? Probably a good thing since you would have been encouraging Andy to ride up on Troy's bucket!

oneyedwilly - You need to seek out "Sixteen Candles".. it is a must! And "The Shining" is consider by many to be the best horror movie of the 80's.

1984 was when I had a friend working at each of the two local theaters. Saw a lot of movies that year. [Wink]

So what happened after 1984? Did you and Mark Ratner break-up or something?

"Look at you: member of the honor roll, assistant to the assistant manager of the movie theater. I'm tellin' ya, Rat, if this girl can't smell your qualifications, then who needs her, right? "

OH MY GOD! Not seen Goonies, someone hasnt seen ferris bueller - wow. Then again i havnt seen shining - seen loads of references to it and got the jist of it from the simpsons episode but now based on comments i will get 16 candles this weekend and watch it possibly tonight and i will also buy the shining - these are considered a MUST have so it seems in any 80s collection.

Is supergirl and april fools day worth buying at all. Are they iconic - i saw april fools day in the video store when i was about 12. Has it got a girl in white with a kitchen knife on the cover??

oneyedwilly, try to get Savage Streets, pronto!
It doesn´t get much better than that.

I´m afraid that the fantastic 2-disc SE dvd is already OOP though...

Both guys were just friends-if they were interested in more they were too shy to say so. Which was fine with me-had to beat them off with a stick in those days [Wink]

I guess at the time I just thought The Goonies was more of a kid movie. I'm sure I'll see it and Ferris too.

You still beat them off with a stick! You just do it before they say anything!

Hmm... how old were you in '85?

Look Water Fountain girl.. clubbing little Mark Ratners at the movie theater is almost as cruel as going with Tommy to watch his face in 3-D. And I thought I was a legend in my own mind..

btw, you should totally give "The Goonies" a chance. Though it is better to watch it at a younger age the first time.. it should still be good though.

At some point.. you are going to start thinking.. How?? .. ha.. I actually swiped this from when I posted about it a few years back in the Halloween Scary Movie Thread:

Dreamscape (1984)

 -

I haven't seen "Dreamscape" in years, but for anyone that enjoys analyzing dreams or even scarier....nightmares, this is a flick you need to watch. I highly recommend this movie for anyone that hasn't seen it yet. Dennis Quaid is excellent as a guy with a special gift recruited by the government, but the real star is David Patrick Kelly who will truely give you nightmares. Fans of the flick "Commando" will remember him as Sully, but he plays an even darker character in "Dreamscape".

 -

 -

How about Eddie Albert who we loved in "Escape To Witch Mountain" playing a completely different character as the President of the United States..

 -

I remember 80'sRocked checked it out!
