Sam Rockwell. Steals. Every. Movie. That. He's. In. I read an interview where he said that he was trying to channel Bill Murray in "Meatballs." He succeeded brilliantly. I only wish that there would have been more of him in the film. I could've done with less of the "Steve Carell as Mom's evil boyfriend" stuff.

You can trust me atomik,did I lie to you when I told you Leonard part 6 was the best 80s movie ever made.

No I reckon chances are mate you would definitely like it,it's a really good movie.

PS. To everyone the bit about leonard part 6 was a joke by the way,honest!

Anyone seen Everybody Wants Some!!! (2016) from Richard Linklater?

"A group of college baseball players navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood."

IŽd like to see this one, lots of cool tunes on the soundtrack.

No not seen it yet Atomik but would definitely like to,hits Blu Ray/DVD here in the UK this coming Monday the 19th September.

Reading very mixed reviews so I don't know what to expect but like you say the soundtrack's got some cool numbers on it!

It's a good one.. Trust me !

But -as always- it's going to be released on a no-name label here in Holland, probably with lousy sleeve design,
none of the extra's of the US and UK release ported over, and in a worst case scenario, non-removable Dutch subs. [Frown]

I will be getting the UK blu-ray instead.. definitely !

My favorite modern '80's-era film (not actually filmed in the '80's, but set during that decade) is definitely Sandler's "The Wedding Singer" (1998). It came out less than 10 years after the '80's had ended, and was definitely one of the first "'80's nostalgia" films. It truly captured the '80's to a great extent.

Also liked the cameo of Billy Idol (on the airplane) towards the end of the film - nice homage, since his music was huge during the '80's era.

"Take Me Home Tonight" is probably my second '80's-era film. Excellent film, which really brought back memories of the '80's time period & the films from that era as well. The music was amazing & nostalgic - Duran Duran, The Buggles, etc. However, possibly my favorite song was the cover of the iconic '80's hit "Don't you Want me Baby" by Atomic Tom, that they played over the credits...this was as good as the original version by "The Human League", and far better than most cover songs I've heard.

And, I can't be the only one that thought the actress who played Tori Fredericking strongly resembled a blonde Kirsten Stewart...to the extent than I actually thought she was KS at first.

It's too bad this film was on hold for so long - by the time it was released in 2011, the whole "80's nostalgia" craze that we saw in the 200X's was already fading away. IMHO it would have been better received if it had come out in 2007/2008, as originally planned....that being said, it was still a great film.
