UHF (1989)
 -

Just felt the need to watch a good old 80's silly comedy, and this one never fails to fit that bill.

Oh yes, it's definitely worth watching at least once. Yes, Weird Al is the main character, but I think most who's seen it would say Michael Richards steals the show in it.

Earth Girls Are Easy - Just ridiculous in every way and I'm here for it. Great cast, weird dream, really bad jokes and hallucinatory numbers. There's a part in the middle were I was complaining that there hadn't been a silly song for a while and then the absurd 'Cos I'm A Blonde' scene started. Haha, great fun. 7/10

Summer Rental

The late great John Candy in his first lead role, set in Florida, with Kerri Green (should have done more movies) and Rip Torn. I probably watched this last more than a decade ago and still enjoyed it to this day.

I saw it was his birthday today so decided to watch this film, I was up early this morning and as the clocks went back here last night it was exceptionally early, a nice bit of quiet time before the family eventually got up. [Smile]

The Unholy - Seen it years ago and only remembered bits and pieces so it felt fresh. I really enjoyed it. The first hour was very creepy and eerie and had me questioning everything. A few times I thought Ben Cross' priest character was somehow in on it all as he did come across a bit of a knob especially at the window ledge scene near the beginning which was so suspenseful. I just ahhh when I see Hal Holbrook <3 And the Luke character made me laugh so much. What a little oddbod, was genuinely sad at his death haha. It lost its way a little but quickly won me around again in that wonderful special effects ridden conclusion with gruesome deaths and awesome Dwarf Demons. The main demons movements were a bit disturbing too. So much beautiful 80s grain <3 8/10


The Delta Force - I expected and enjoyed the shenanigans of the second half. But I was quite taken aback by the serious tone of the first half, with only Chuck eating his chucky eggs breaking up the tension [Wink] I kinda wished that it had stayed more in that vein tbh. 7/10

Bad Dreams - It had been ages since I last watched this and although I knew it was a elm street 3 rip I didn't remember just how much so. It was outrageous lol. It's funny that the things I remembered most were the culty farm parts even though surprisingly there is barely any of that. I wish there'd been more flashbacks of the cultlife. Anyway I enjoyed it and it was the parts that were a lot different to elm street that I appreciated the most. I'd completely forgotten that gripping ending and the killing the guy with his car dream was sublime. 7/10

This one definitely deserves a re-watch sometime if I can find it again. I haven't seen it in awhile but I remember watching it quite a bit when it was on cable because it had my first real 80's celebrity crush E.G. Daily in it and a couple of the death scenes were pretty brutal.

It looks like it isn’t available to stream.
The Unholy is available though, I saved it in the Hoopla app which is a free library app.

The Return of Captain Invincible

 -

Only ever watched this once before and didn't remember it fondly, but bought the blu-ray anyway. I suppose you could call it a superhero spoof musical, it is funny in bits.

In the final attack scenes where the public are running around and screaming they cut to a group of people holding up a woman who is changing a lightbulb [Confused] [Big Grin]

Don't bother with the Blu-ray though, the picture quality hasn't been increased that much and the audio is only marginally better.

Wings Of Desire - This is wonderful. I'd only ever seen the car crash remake, City Of Angels, which is even worse now after seeing this and how they made that version a ridiculously simplistic love story with an oh well ending. This has so much to offer before it even gets to the love story. The parts that hit me the most was just how depressing yet comforting it was when the angels would travel around and pick out the people with the dark thoughts, their touch instilling some hope and encouragement into their minds for whatever their problems were, big or small. The music and look of the film was stunning throughout and the perfomances especially Bruno Ganz were inspired. I liked how the mixing of black and white and colour sequences not only was nice to look at but had a purpose. The moments of light relief were fab and I loved how Peter Falk was playing himself but as an ex angel haha. 9/10


The Fan - Michael Biehn is creepier in The Terminator than he is here as a stalking, stabbing lunatic! 6/10


Cannonball Run II - Whilst not quite on the same level as the first film it was just as bloody daft and feelgood [Big Grin] 7/10


Happy Birthday To Me - This is how you do slow. I only saw this once years ago and I'm glad it was just as great as I remembered. Also glad that I forgot the wacky ending. The atmosphere is wonderful, I feel like I'm sitting inside of the film. So grotty but so, so comfortable <3 8/10


An Innocent Man - All the 80s Tom Selleck getting revenge after being framed by dirty cops cheese you could ever want! [Big Grin] 8/10

Oxford Blues - The Karate Kid and Once Upon A Time In America were made in 1984, and also this... 3/10

Watched Happy Birthday to Me the first time few months back and it was pretty awesome old school whodunnit. I just loved the overall atmosphere in the film, pure early 80s magic. Once again strong 8/10 from me too.

Not really, I actually forgot how bad it was, not even John Candy could save it, although I don't blame him the storyline is poor.

Maybe because I had just watched 1 and 2 it pales in comparison, it just wasn't funny.

Yes but tenuous, it was also called Cannonball Fever, Orion wanted to make a third but Burt Reynolds turned them down, so the rewrote it and called it speed zone but with different actors, writers and director. Jamie Farr was the only actor I remember from all 3.
