I agree terdnthepoolggb, I must say I did like the magazine a lot overall but i did at times think that the reviewers were a bunch of muppets.

I remember they rated - death wish 3 a 1 out of 5 and also - the delta force a 1 out Of 5 and if that wasn't annoying enough you would then get some artsy fartsy brit period flick (where everyone talks through there noses) come along and it would get high fives across the board!

Here's a few pics from vintage film magazines that I have picked up of late with above being the outer cover of Film Review December 1982 featuring the Burt Reynolds Dolly Parton musical comedy The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas + Spielberg's E.T.


 -

A cool black and white ad of the awesome Stephen King anthology Creepshow with its rather wicked looking artwork stating that it will be playing all over London from the 21st of November 1982.


(Below) Also from the same edition (Dec 1982 Film Review) another pic of Dolly from The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas plus a black and white ad for the highly entertaining horror sequel Amityville 2 The Possession starring Burt Young,Rutanya Alda and the beautifulI Diane Franklin.

(Above) the front cover of Photoplay Movies & Video magazine November 1984 featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan The Destroyer plus the late great popstar Prince In Purple Rain.


 -

(Inside) another ad that caught my eye for the 1984 erotic drama Bolero starring the stunning Bo Derek and also featuring the great George Kennedy it was a Cannon Films production which was shot by Bo's husband John Derek.

Never seen it before but would like to despite it picking up worst picture that year at the golden raspberry awards!


 -

And lastly from the same edition is the very beautiful Maria Conchita Alonso who appeared in that months release of the 1984 Paul Mazursky comedy Moscow On The Hudson with the much missed comedy genius Robin Williams.

Love the pics warrior, thanks for sharing!

Like all the films you mentioned but Bolero is actually pretty dull despite the Bo Derek / Olivia d’Abo nudity.

Alonso is stunning in Moscow on the Hudson.

 -


Film Review October 1984 featuring Tom Selleck in that months release of Lassiter,Diddley Moore and Nastassja Kinski in the comedy Unfaithfully Yours and main and center Mel Gibson in The Bounty.


 -

Some good releases that month including Moscow On The Hudson + the Jim Abraham's Zuckerberg Brothers spoof Top Secret which on the advertisement poster (Above) is rated Pg - Parent Guardian but I'm sure that's an error because checking up on the bbfc and from memory it was always a 15 certificate here in the U.K http://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/top-secret-2002-2


Other releases that month were Bachelor Party,Streets Of Fire,The Company Of Wolves,Lassiter,Blame It On Rio, Racing With The Moon,The Hit with John Hurt,WW2 drama The Highest Honour and Scottish Comedy drama Comfort And Joy.


 -


(Above) some of October 1984s UK cinema releases plus a small as for Walter Hill's Terrific Streets Of Fire with Michael Pare and the beautiful Diane Lane.


And -


 -


Film Review September 1983 which features the late great David Bowie who had not long appeared in the superbly made Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence alongside Tom Conti.


(Below) Stallone directing John Travolta in the 1983 Saturday Night Fever sequel Staying Alive -


 -


Again some seriously cool releases that month including Blue Thunder, Porky's 2 - The Next Day,The Outsiders, Twilight Zone - The Movie, Herbie Rides Again and The Lords Of Discipline.


 -


Whilst still screening throughout the U.K were the likes of Octopussy,Flashdance,Superman 3, Return Of The Jedi,Treasure Of The Four Crowns,Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life,House Of The Long Shadows,Local Hero and Educating Rita.

Definitely right there Johnny and when you look at most months release listings it's not just the odd outstanding flick here and there there's numerous ones each month and it seriously makes me long for those days gone by especialy when you consider some of the drivel they release at the multiplex's nowadays!

Latest magazine pick up is one I used to collect on a monthly basis back in the day but this certain issue was one of very few that somehow passed me by and that is Video The Magazine November 1986 with Godzilla 1985 featured on the front cover.


 -


Some terrific films released to home video that month,here's a select few and the ratings that they received some of which I agree with but many that I don't!


They would be rated on an out of 5 score

Remo - Unarmed And Dangerous 4 out of 5

The Park Is Mine - 3 out of 5

The Boys Next Door - 4 out of 5

Busted Up - 3.5 out of 5

House - 4 out of 5

Spies Like Us - 1 out of 5. No way it might have not been a comedy classic like Landis's earlier Trading Places but it was still a fun family come!

The Howling 2 - 4 out of 5. Were they drunk? Saying that it is fun to watch though for all the wrong reasons!

Silver Bullet - 3 out of 5

The Delta Force - 1 out of 5. Same as Spies Like Us no way a 1 what were they thinking and I hope for there sakes old Chuck don't ever find out they dissed his film!

Bad Medicine - 3 out of 5

Aah ´86, what a fantastic year! Thanx for sharing [Cool]

I see that made-for-tv thriller The Final Jeopardy gets three stars.
I think i have the vhs tape somewhere and sure dig the cover art. Gotta check it out at some point.

Yeah the cover art for Final Jeopardy looks really cool Atomik and plot wise it comes across a bit like a toned down version of the excellent 1993 thriller Judgment Night!

Picked this up for my birthday the other week and that's VHS: Video Cover Art which features more than 250 pages of awesome 80s/90s video artwork


Here's a few -


 -


Who wouldn't get sucked in by artwork like this for the 1986 Linda Blair action flick Savage Island but by all accounts the movie sucks!


 -


Never seen it before but this is meant to be a fun little horror comedy from 1990 The Willie's starring Sean Aston,James Karen and Kathleen Freeman.


 -


Cool cover to the really fun 1985 CBS FOX comedy Moving Violations starring Bill Murray's brother John Murray plus a young Jennifer Tilly with James Keach and Sally Kellerman.

And a few more -


 -


Had to double check there was no nudity on the cover before uploading as quite a few of these 80s comedy covers do feature nudity but here's the cover art for the fun 1984 arcade comedy Joysticks starring Joe Don Baker and Scott McGinnis from one of my favourite distributers of the time Entertainment In Video.


 -


Cover art for 1985-86's Misfits Of Science which I have never viewed before,I'd imagine this must have been the pilot movie!


 -


Artwork for the enjoyable 1988 monster truck revenge flick Rolling Vengeance from Medusa Home Video.


 -


More awesome artwork for an Entertainment In Video title and that is 1984's Charles Band hit Trancers a terrific low budget sci-fi adventure that spawned many a sequel!

Well worth picking up Atomik there's some real obscure ones in there as well that makes it that much better!

I'll take a few more pics of the inside when I get chance.

A few more sleeve pictures from the VHS Video
Cover Art book -


 -


Never seen this early 80s Sci-fi Adventure but it sort of reminds me of the fun Spacehunter Adventures In The Forbidden Zone which were both released in 1983 and both originally shot in 3-D.


 -


Artwork for 1988's Aussie action flick Breaking Loose starring Peter Phelps which in some territories was known as Breaking Loose:Summer City 2 [Confused]

I'd imagine it's some belated sequel to an earlier Aussie Drama Summer City (1977) that features both Mel Gibson and Wolf Creek's Jon Jarrat in the cast!

Never seen either but both look interesting enough to be worth checking out!


 -


The UK artwork for the fun Australian family flick BMX Bandits featuring an early performance from a young Nicole Kidman and directed by the very talented Brian Trenchard Smith.


 -


Entertainment In Video artwork (with added paper cut outs by myself to cover up any naughty bits! [Big Grin] ) for the awesome 1984 T&A Comedy Party Animal starring Matthew Causey and Timothy Carhart.
