I'm pretty sure I had started a thread for this before but I could not find it. Now that we are in September and football is starting, I'm in the mood for fall movies (I just need some cooler weather and it will be perfect). I have a few favorites but was curious what movies everyone enjoys watching in the fall.

Try to keep it 80's but if you have some others that are perfect for fall, I'd love to hear them.

Halloween
Friday the 13th movies
Children of the Corn
Funny Farm
Planes Trains (later fall)
Tommy Boy
Ground Hog Day (don't ask why, I know, it's spring)

This is my staple fall collection...I whip these out every year at this time:

Oxford Blues
St. Elmo's Fire
Making The Grade
All The Right Moves
Fresh Horses
Morgan Stewart's Coming Home
Private School

And slowly I start incorporating some cheesy horror into the mix before we're at max capacity come October 1st!!

You might catch Vamp, My Best Friend Is A Vampire, Once Bitten, Near Dark & Happy Birthday To Me.

Thanks for all the great suggestions you two! I love watching movies based on what time of year it is! I feel like they hit home even more that way. My problem is I always want to start watching the upcoming season's movies way too early (Christmas is the worst).

I can't believe I forgot to write down All the right moves! I love watching several football movies during this time.

I also like Uncle Buck for the fall.

I watch movies depending on the mood. Not so much for seasonal changes. But October usually is the time for my slasher/zombie/wolf/lovecraftian stuff.

I grew up very near Punxy. My little sister did her student teaching there. Nice little town! Good list of fall/Halloween movies, by the way. I especially like the original Black Christmas, The Brood, and the original The Stepfather.

No mention of Ghostbusters yet? It's always been perfect around Halloween here.

Gordongecko- it is probably a good political move that I retire that name... [Smile] Crash-my sister-in-law painted the inside of Punxsy Phil's house at the Civic Center at the Library where his house is. She painted the mural on the wall.

How about Monster Squad, did anyone mention it?

I guess I'm a little late to bump this compared to the last few years. Feel free to keep adding to the list or discuss the fall movies you've been watching this year.

I've been holding off for as long as possible but I think it's time I start watching a few. I'm sure the first one will be Funny Farm. I can't wait to see it again!

Also, if anyone wants to mention any fall movies that they saw were going to be on TV or that are available streaming, that would be great to know!

Just watched When Harry Met Sally last night. Some really great fall scenery in that film. Also, it's just a solid movie all around. Trying to sneak in a few more before it feels like winter up north here.

I love the scene when they are walking through Central Park. I want to go to NYC in the fall sometime. We've gone in the early spring for the optical convention, and it's freeeeeezing! Ha ha! I'd love to go when it's warm during the day, and see the beautiful leaves.

Pittsburgh - Yes NYC in the fall is great. Still can be cold too, but you get a lot of nice days too. It's beautiful.

Terd- We had some beautiful colors in MN but then, like many years, the snow came too early and screwed it up! So lots of leaves got knocked down too soon. It's been snowing here and there ever since, but not much on the ground at this point. I feel like we got robbed of fall, but that happens up here.

Bummer gordongecko, we don't have that issue here but strong winds at times mess it up. Fall here has not been a normal fall. Seems like we have only had a handful of nice days. Been mostly cold days which is ideal for watching 80s movies. [Wink]
