i've got running hot on dvd as well,it was a blind buy,the out of print vhs was selling at ridiculous prices and when i saw code red were issuing it on dvd i snapped it up straight away,really great little known 80s flick.

i think it's been re issued since by scorpion dvd paired up with the thriller hot target(one i've never seen).

on the old code red dvd they say there is a spelling error on the front cover with eric stoltz's name,i've not ever checked my copy but i'll have to have a look at some time.

please excuse the mess i'm in the middle of decorating.


it's not 80s but i've not long purchased a us one sheet poster of the terrific 1993 thriller judgement night of ebay.

just waiting for it to arrive from the us,keeping my fingers crossed it's in as good a condition as it looked on ebay.

i don't own many posters,about 5 or 6 in total,making the grade is the one in the best condition,it looks top notch where as the us one sheet of mutant 1984 i purchased turned up disappointingly a lot more creased than the pics and seller had detailed it on ebay.

all the original 80s uk quad posters and i believe us one sheet posters as well were nearly always supplied to the theatres in a folded condition, hence the crease lines where as later posters (90s onwards) tended to be rolled.

Trading Places

Back to the Future

Back in the 80s the rating system was like this: S = General Audiences, after that basically every even number up to 18 and then KK = banned.

They have changed the system twice since. The first time was in 2001 which was the year of relief to finnish movie lovers, the old stupid video law was finally over and they didn´t cut movies anymore.
The ratings were 3,7,11,13,15 and 18.

In 2012 they changed the system again and now it´s like this:

S = General Audiance and after that comes 7,12,16,18.
You can see movies with 7,12,16 marking with an adult even if you´re three years younger.

Just wondering is there a mistake in the picture as it it says Denis Leary instead of who's in the picture?

i can see your point thenodfather but i think it might of been the case of denis leary perhaps being a higher profile name back in 93 in the us than what stephen dorff was!

a few more random 80s movie posters i think are very cool,all very simple in design but still very effective.

i especially like the explorers & hot pursuit poster.


 -
armed and dangerous (1986)


 -
electric dreams (1984)


 -
explorers (1985). only ever caught the end of this one,any good?



 -
stakeout (1987)


and
 -
hot pursuit (1987)

I love the poster and the first hour (or so) of the movie is great but the last part sucks.
I think this opinion is universally agreed [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

DO, I really recommend it. Rick Moranis and Dave Tomas are brilliant in it and make a great duo. Like the titles suggests it is a strange brew. I like to watch it with a few beers [Big Grin]

Here's the trailer for it:

I think that they never released Making Contact here. It´s interesting stuff though, Roland Emmerich´s first international movie.

Strange Brew is another tricky one i´ve never seen. Maybe i´ll order the R1 dvd someday.

Drew Struzan did a lot of thpse really nice Star Wars, Indiana Jones, New Blade Runner and The Back to the Future Series. One of the most prolific movie poster artist. He continued on to do many 90's and late on. One of the last ones I remember was Hellboy.
