I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread so that people could inform others of when 80's movies will be on tv. That way more of us can hopefully catch them and enjoy the movies.

First addition to this thread is Mystic Pizza.

 -

It is on Monday, Aug 3rd, at 7pm (cdt), on AMC.

Good thread GG!

I actually had already set my DVR for Funny Farm on Encore. Watched a little bit of it earlier. This is a somewhat forgotten one, but funny and a simple pleasure. Long live Yellow Dog!

It Takes Two (1988)

Travis Rogers (George Newborn) is a young man slated to marry his childhood sweetheart Stephi (Leslie Hope) in this romantic comedy. Just days before the wedding, Travis leaves his Texas ranch to buy an expensive sports car. Enticed by sexy salewoman Jonni Tigersmith (Kimberly Foster), George soon finds himself in way over his head when the car turns out to be a lemon and his impending marital vows are put to the ultimate test. Ever determined, he teams up with Jonni and a disgruntled mechanic to get retribution from the crooked car dealer and set things straight. Meanwhile, Stephi waits patiently to see if her groom will meet her at the altar.

During a weekend home alone, Glen (Stephen Dorff), and his best friend Terry (Louis Tripp), accidentally open a gateway to hell when a rotten tree is removed from the backyard of Glen's house. When the family dog is killed and gets buried in the same hole, demons from an ancient civilization are unleashed, seeking human sacrifices to complete their conquest of Earth.

River's Edge (1986)

The nude, strangled body of a teenaged girl lies on the edge of the river. Her murderer is her boyfriend, Sampson (Daniel Roebuck), known by his friends as John. All the kids in the dismal, dead-end town know who committed the murder. The trouble is, no one bothers to turn Sampson in; some of the teens don't know how to react to the crime, while others, strung out on drugs and booze, just don't give a damn. A study of contemporary alienation, River's Edge was based on a real-life incident that occurred in Milpitas, California, in 1981. Co-stars Keanu Reeves, Ione Skye, Crispin Glover, Joshua Miller and Dennis Hopper.

Great movie, kind of on the darker side. Good one to watch with football starting up just about everywhere in the country. Also, the theme song to this movie is a dandy! Love it.

Finally just watched Mystic Pizza for the first time a few weeks ago. Not from the DVR (from my post a few years ago [Smile] but it was on tv.

I really enjoyed it! Pretty good movie for a laid back night. Glad I finally watched it.
