yeah I hate to act like I kiss John Hughe's *** but really - I do! The man is a saint and shouldve been knighted in my book.

whats really interesting is my mom called me up a few weeks ago to tell me about an article she read about him and then she said "Do you know Ive never seen FERRIS BUELLERS DAY OFF? How could I NOT have seen that movie? You watched it all the time" and I said "well, I have the DVD , come over any time and watch it. I have a LOT of his movies." so yeah, its nice to know someone in their 70s is ready to BECOME a fan too.

Aww... we all kiss his beeeehind here, don't we? I imagine we were the ones doing it when it wasn't the 'in' thing to be doing.

Before you let her watch it make sure you tell her not to get any big ideas. You know what these kids are like!

@ Saturnchick:

YESSSSSSS! A little 'Tootsie' love!

If you were a real person and not an internet construct designed to make people feel like they're interacting with other human beings when in fact all they're doing is interacting with randomised numbers generated by a supercomputer that runs the planet... I'd kiss the back of your hand! Shame you don't have a hand. This will have to do:

XOXOOOXXXXXOOOXOXOOOOXOX

I think that was a little too raunchy.

To Logan - it's nice to see a fellow Tootsie fan, I always think that one gets lost in the shuffle. Although it is a great, great comedy, very rarely do hear people mention it as a favorite of the 80's.

To mama - I LOVE Stand by Me. I can't begin to tell you how many times I watched that one from about 1987-1991. Probably close to 100 times. Crazy, I know, but it's a fine movie, and it still stands up after all these years. Hooray for Stand by Me.

The ending with River always gets me.

People tend to forget about the more 'adult' movies of the 80's when making lists, because there's so much nostalgia and 'memories of youth' involved, so the films inevitably feature the young. Ironically, some of the biggest hits of the 80's almost never appear on people's fave lists.

I am a nut for order, but the task is too impossible to even get to just 10, so this will go against every impulse of mine and will just be random, so in truly no particular order and because these may not be my favorite movies of the 80's, but they get heavy enough rotation on cable channels that you can almost always find them on a Saturday or Sunday playomg somewhere and invariably derail some portion of my day...

Rocky IV

 -

...because if I'se can change, and you'se can change...EVERYBODY'S CAN CHANGE! [Big Grin]

Aliens

This will stop me dead in my tracks every, every, every, every, every, every single time! I thought of writing the an open letter to the various cable channel executives asking them to not play it on the weekends so I can return to my life, but I am dealing with it because it mostly comes on at night...mostly. [Wink]

Return of the Jedi

Like I said, not a list of top movies, but it is weirdly like a drug to me and I always find myself coming to with Ewoks dancing around a tree and music swelling to the Star Wars title theme and think to myself...did I just watch half of Jedi again?

Back to the Future

It just never gets old.

The Goonies

Thank you TNT Network...yes please! May I have another?!

 -

Up The Creek

I love this movie, always look for it and surprisingly enough I find it about a half dozen times a year. It is currently on Comcast Free Movies!

 -

Streets of Fire

I love the music, story, acting, just all of it and it is so "rainy saturday at 2 in the afternoon" consumable!

Wargames

And thank you to USA Network! [Razz]

Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Hey you guys had shirts on when you came in here.

"Well something happen'd to 'em"

 -

Caddyshack

Funnier every single time I watch it which should be theoretically impossible.

Footloose

Forget Avatar! This is why I need to get Blu Ray with 7.1 surround!!!

...and an amp that goes to 11. [Big Grin]

this is impossible..there's just too many..but here's a rough attempt at it anyway..and I garantee this will not even be close to accurate..because I'll just change my mind on half the movies after I post this:


1. Rocky IV - What can I say?...Easily the best of the bunch with a kick *** soundtrack that I still crank up whenever the chance arises.

2. The Goonies: Do I really need to explain why??..it's a must for any 80's fan to have this movie on the list..nuff said.

3. Poltergeist - The first movie I ever saw that scared the Bejesus out of me enough to cause me to wet my pants and run home screaming like a little girl.

4. RAD - Yes, I was a rabid BMX'er growing up..so this movie was the be all, end all of all great movies to me growing up. And thanks to this movie I'll forever have the songs "Send Me An Angel" and "Thunder in your Heart" echoing in the deepest, darkest reccesses of my brain until I die.

5. Raiders of the Lost Ark - My dad got me addicted to all the Indiana Jones films at a young age...and Raiders is my fav of the bunch. I still jump up and cheer like a rabid football fan when the big bald Nazi gets diced by the German plane propellars.

6. Body Double - This would probably have to be my favorite in the De Palma collection, (followed closely by "Casualties of War"). Though it foreshadows heavily on not only 1, but 3 different Hitchc0ck films...it's still a brilliant film..no one will ever change my mind on that..and I don't remember old HitchC0ck films being as erotic as De Palma's works.

7. Gremlins - GIZMOOO!!! KAHKAH!!!> [Smile]

8. Batman - Well..this is a no-brianer simply because Batman's one of my all-time favorite Comic Books...so it goes without saying I loved the film..and I still think it's one of Tim Burton's Best works to date. And also one of Danny Elfman's best scores to date as well. It's Just an overall great package.

9. Aliens - Damn I'd still kill to get my hands on some of those Weapons!

10. Staying Alive - Yes, one of my favorites in my "Guilty Pleasure" collection. And dare I say it, I like this movie even more than it's counterpart "Saturday Night Fever."


....ok..there's my 10..as i said already though, this list isn't that accurate because if you only want 10..then you won't get that deadly of an accurate list from me.

Good list Pyromantic, the only one I have never seen is Rad. Would I like it as a 40 year old or would I have needed to see it in the 80's first and have a "soft spot in my heart for it"?

Right off I'd say you would have needed to see it in the 80's when you were a kid to fully enjoy it. But if you were a BMX'er back in your youth...then you might get a kick out of it strictly from a nostalgic standpoint. But just don't expect the film to raise any IQ points...it's a film targeted toward kids after all. But if you still enjoy "kid flicks"...then I say check it out.

Earl, if you like, then you can view "Rad" online.

It is on YouTube. Crackedvenom2 has posted it on there.

Please enjoy. [Smile]
