Jaws 3 - I don't even wanna talk about this. This was the sequel I watched the most as a kid. I always knew it was crap but then and the times I've viewed it since it was at least entertaining crap. Today I can't think of one redeeming feature other than maybe the hilarious slo mo faces just before the shark crashes through the glass. Runs off to cry [Frown]

I saw that in the theatre in 3-D. It was still a crummy experience.

Jaws 4 - So call me crazy but this is now my favourite of the sequels! I know with my rating of 5/10 that's not really saying much like. First off it just looks friggin' stunning. Gorgeous! And the shark looks a ton better than part 3. Yeah the plot is ludicrous and yadda, yadda, yadda but I just love how it's all about the Brody family again and how sad and sentimental it is especially in the first half. The final 20 minutes or so is just a big old bundle of fun especially with my favourite bit. 'Oh bloody hell, the breath on that thing' Tehe! I love Michael Caine just not giving a beep at all, just having a great time with it.

I watched The Man With One Red Shoe a couple days ago. It was a decent dramedy, starring Tom Hanks, Lori Singer and Jim Belushi. Carrie Fisher has a very small, and silly part. I liked the movie overall, but could have done without the Carrie Fisher role. I had always avoided watching this one because of the movie title.

Not Just Another Affair (1982)

"A marine biologist who is celibate. A lawyer whom no woman can't seem to resist. What happens when the two of them meet?" (IMDb)

A decent but somewhat charming made for television dramedy starring Victoria Principal, Gil Gerard and superhot Sharon Stone in a two minute role.
Lots of fun early 80s dialogue about relationships and sex.

Rhinestone (1984)

"A country music star must turn an obnoxious New York cabbie into a singer in order to win a bet."

Yeah, it´s a silly silly film but i kinda enjoyed it.
It was directed by Bob "Porky´s" Clark and stars Sylvester Stallone, Dolly Parton, Richard Farnsworth, Ron Leibman and Tim Thomerson.

Stallone can´t sing and sounds funny, Bobcat Goldwaith comes to mind [Big Grin]
I love Parton´s outfits and Thomerson is actually the funniest fella in the film.
If you enjoy watching movies like, let´s say Smokey and the Bandit, i bet that you like Rhinestone too.

Tim Thomerson always makes anything better than it is. He was a funny stand-up comedian, and his snarky delivery always makes me smile.

Rhinestone's a pretty enjoyable movie and I think Stallone and Parton teamed up rather nicely and if I remember right didn't Tim Thomerson play a right slimebag in it?

I'll have to grab it off my shelf for another viewing as it's been a little while but yeah I do remember it being good fun!

I can't believe I actually went to the theatres to watch part 4 as God it was awful and if I remember rightly at the time i didn't know whether to laugh or cry!

laugh the fact that it was so bad that it was funny or to cry that I had just wasted my weeks pocket money to go and see it!

Watched Turner and Hootch (1989)

"A detective must adopt the dog of a dead man to help him find the murderer." (IMDb)

Someone here may already know that i despise dog films but i have to say that i liked this one.
There´s a reason for that and his name is Tom Hanks, what a fantastic performance!

Rather enjoyable 1986 kids space adventure with the most preposterous of plots about a group of kids at Space Camp who are accidentally launched up into space with the help of a mischievous NASA Robot called if I remember rightly 'Jinx'.

Great cast here with Kate Capshaw,Lea Thompson,Tate Donovan, Joaquin Phoenix,the beautiful Kelly Preston and the always terrific Tom Skerritt and also for its time some fairly decent effects work!

Wished I'd got my 10 year old son to watch this with me before I sent the rental back as I reckon that he would have absolutely loved it never mind I might pick up the dvd or maybe even the upcoming Blu Ray somewhere down the line!

Fun stuff and makes for perfect family viewing!

Watched The Pink Chiquitas (1987) which was a totally bonkers "horror" comedy.

"A pink meteor controlled by aliens lands near a small town and turns the local women into nymphos.
A deputy sheriff and a local private eye investigate." (IMDb)

The film "stars" Frank Stallone, lots of beautiful ladies and some ultra annoying characters.
I love the idea but unfortunately the execution mostly sucks. Art of Noise´s "Peter Gunn" on the soundtrack was a nice bonus though.

Mistress (1987)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093551/

"A woman who's been having an affair with a married man who's been taking care of her. When he dies she finds herself with nothing.
So she tries to rebuild her life but not without the stigma of being a kept woman following her." (IMDb)

Surprisingly downbeat tv-movie this one but not bad at all actually.
Victoria Principal looks fantastic as Rae Colton and gives all that she got. Grace Zabriskie (Twin Peaks) is solid as Rae´s mother.

Resurrection (1980)

"Edna Mae Macaulay experiences the afterlife for a brief time after a car accident that kills her husband.
As she begins her long process of physical healing, she discovers that she has the ability to heal physical infirmities.
While most people simply accept her gift, her lover becomes mentally unbalanced and dangerous because she does not place the healings within a religious context." (IMDb)

Nice little drama from Daniel Petrie with strong performances from Ellen Burstyn, Sam Shepard (RIP) and Eva Le Gallienne.

Cross My Heart (1987)

This was a solid, one night romantic comedy. Didn´t make me laugh but there´s some decent dialog here.

It´s a typical story, a man (Martin Short) goes to date with a woman (Annette O´Toole) and both of them decide leave their skeletons in the closet to give a good impression.
Well, after sex (O´Toole topless!) the skeletons don´t want to hide anymore and the arguments begin. But don´t you worry because it all ends in a high note [Smile]

As i said, a solid film with decent performances from the cast but the plot was so predictable i knew all twists and turns.

Timothy B. Schmit´s (Eagles) cool "So Much in Love" during the end credits was a nice bonus.

I'll have to look at checking Cross My Heart out Atomik as I don't mind the lack of laughs if the cast and dialogue are mostly up to a high standard then that will do!

Martin Short I do find to be sometimes fairly annoying especially in the Three Amigos but have enjoyed him elsewhere in the likes of Captain Ron and Inner space.

I find Martin Short to be likeable enough, but certainly not one of the true titans to come out of SCTV, like Candy, Levy, Flaherty, Thomas, O'Hara, and especially Rick Moranis, an unsung genius. I enjoy Short's work, but Jiminy Glick, wears out his welcome pretty quickly.

Psycho II - Yes, this was almost like watching it for the first time! I'd forgotten most of the twists. Shame how Lila goes from being my favourite character in the first to this despicable bitch. I'm glad she swallowed that knife! It was a bit slow to get off the ground and some plot points were a bit daft but it really picked up the tension as it went along and had a magnificent ending. Couple of yuck moments in here and I loved the cop summing up towards the end, so funny.

I thought Psycho II by Hitch student Richard Franklin was a surprisingly good film that I was prepared to hate. I liked the little nods to the master, the screenplay is daft in spots but fun, and Anthony Perkins, well, he will for an eternity own the part of Norman Bates. If you think about it, all the great movie psychopathic killers owe a bit to Perkins's amazingly original performance.

[Smile] Mmm hmm!

Psycho III - I like some things about this one, the three main characters, that ice cube part, toilet scene, the fight between Norman and Duane and the closing shot. And I loved, loved the opening which looked more like an Omen film than it did a Psycho one. But overall just not that impressed and was even a little bored at times.

Absolutely love both Psycho 2 & 3 Helen and don't dislike part 4 either especially for what was a made for TV sequel.

From the follow ups Psycho 2 is my pick of the bunch and for me a seriously strong sequel to what was a classic original and like you mentioned the ending was something else!

Actually got an original UK cinema quad poster for Psycho 3 currently hanging on my bedroom wall (above).
