I'm pretty sure I had started a thread for this before but I could not find it. Now that we are in September and football is starting, I'm in the mood for fall movies (I just need some cooler weather and it will be perfect). I have a few favorites but was curious what movies everyone enjoys watching in the fall.

Try to keep it 80's but if you have some others that are perfect for fall, I'd love to hear them.

Halloween
Friday the 13th movies
Children of the Corn
Funny Farm
Planes Trains (later fall)
Tommy Boy
Ground Hog Day (don't ask why, I know, it's spring)

This is my staple fall collection...I whip these out every year at this time:

Oxford Blues
St. Elmo's Fire
Making The Grade
All The Right Moves
Fresh Horses
Morgan Stewart's Coming Home
Private School

And slowly I start incorporating some cheesy horror into the mix before we're at max capacity come October 1st!!

You might catch Vamp, My Best Friend Is A Vampire, Once Bitten, Near Dark & Happy Birthday To Me.

Thanks for all the great suggestions you two! I love watching movies based on what time of year it is! I feel like they hit home even more that way. My problem is I always want to start watching the upcoming season's movies way too early (Christmas is the worst).

I can't believe I forgot to write down All the right moves! I love watching several football movies during this time.

I also like Uncle Buck for the fall.

I watch movies depending on the mood. Not so much for seasonal changes. But October usually is the time for my slasher/zombie/wolf/lovecraftian stuff.

I grew up very near Punxy. My little sister did her student teaching there. Nice little town! Good list of fall/Halloween movies, by the way. I especially like the original Black Christmas, The Brood, and the original The Stepfather.

No mention of Ghostbusters yet? It's always been perfect around Halloween here.
 
Posted by gordongecko (Member # 4685) on :
 
Chris! I can't believe I let that one slip off the list. Perfect fall movie and I always make sure to watch that one.

Great list Isis.... I mean April Fool. Nice to see you back.

Gordongecko- it is probably a good political move that I retire that name... [Smile] Crash-my sister-in-law painted the inside of Punxsy Phil's house at the Civic Center at the Library where his house is. She painted the mural on the wall.

How about Monster Squad, did anyone mention it?

I guess I'm a little late to bump this compared to the last few years. Feel free to keep adding to the list or discuss the fall movies you've been watching this year.

I've been holding off for as long as possible but I think it's time I start watching a few. I'm sure the first one will be Funny Farm. I can't wait to see it again!

Good choice gecko. I love that movie.
All the Right Moves is in my queue
 
Posted by gordongecko (Member # 4685) on :
 
Thanks! I really enjoy All the Right Moves as well. I hope to fit that one in this year as well.
 
Posted by gordongecko (Member # 4685) on :
 
Also, if anyone wants to mention any fall movies that they saw were going to be on TV or that are available streaming, that would be great to know!

Risky Business reminds me of fall. May try and watch it
 
Posted by gordongecko (Member # 4685) on :
 
I thought I'd bump this up because time just fast forwarded a month here in MN. Went from warm 80's weather to highs around 60, over night. Watched Big two nights ago and it really hit the spot. I'm looking forward to viewing a few more fall favorites in the coming days. Keep the suggestions coming, if you have any to add.

Has anyone watched any fall movies recently?
 
Posted by Pittsburghgirl (Member # 7514) on :
 
I haven’t watched any yet. I should watch All The Right Moves again, since it was filmed in my hometown.
Reading through some of these posts, I miss Crash posting here.
 
Posted by TerdNthePoolGGB (Member # 9818) on :
 
I wanna watch All the Right Moves
 
Posted by gordongecko (Member # 4685) on :
 
Yes, having Crash around is always nice. So many posters I miss around here!

I love All the Right Moves! I didn't know it was in your hometown. That's really cool. So was that your high school/football stadium? I'm curious about the locations, and if you have any stories about them.

Gordon gecko, I will get back to you tonight about ATRM! It’s funny, but we have been discussing it on the Vintage Johnstown Facebook page this past week!
