Yeah I'm pretty stoked about that one. I can finally retire my VHS tape. I refuse to pay $40+ for the out of print dvd. I'll be picking that one up on day of release.

I'll be picking that up also,I love hot dog the movie and this sounds along the lines of that.

Olive films are releasing some pretty cool stuff over the next few months.

Rosebud Beach hotel (1984) has yet to to make it to DVD/Bluray. Still looking for the soundtrack all these years. The Currie sisters did some appearances on the soundtrack.

I saw this one years back,i think I remember it being not to bad,this seems a very rare 80s teen comedy - paradise motel(1985).

I'm positive it's never had a DVD release and I think the vhs is pretty scarce!

Paradise Motel is a good film. I also started a thread few years back.

Just found out that The Rosebud Beach Motel was released also here in Finland on vhs but its a Vestron Video title so its pretty rare stuff.
My Eddie Deezen collection just isnt complete without it [Smile]

valet girls from 1987 seems a very rare t&a comedy that's both very scarce on vhs and non-existent on dvd(never released).

there's an excellent quality full movie video of it on youtube taken from the mgm hd channel but the trouble is its all in french,so unless i take a crash course in the french language i'm not going to have a clue as to what's going on!

anyone seen this,is it good for a laugh or a bit of a stinker?

i've never seen firehouse atomik but if it's anywhere near as good as the cover (chances are going by some of the reviews probably not) it's going to be a classic!

Aaah.. Honneponnetje.. now that brings back memories ! [Big Grin]

I have never seen that poster art though.. seems like they tried to spice things up a bit.
The original poster and subsequent video-sleeve looked like this :

 -

Back then, Honneponnetje was actually well-promoted here in Holland, but has indeed slipped into obscurity.
It hasn't been on tv in quite some time, and i don't believe there ever was a dvd release either.

To be honest, i haven't seen it in ages. I first saw it shortly after it came out on video, and again
on Dutch television, sometime in the early 90's. If i remember correct, it's a pretty lame comedy
from the same director as the excellent Schatjes (1984) and its sequel Mama Is Boos (1986).

If you're anxious to get an impression of Honneponnetje, it's on Youtube : www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCYCfnYXdi4

I don't know if these movies are known outside of The Netherlands, but the aforementioned Schatjes is worth
tracking down. It's a pitch-black comedy so dark it crosses over into thriller territory, about an escalating conflict
between self-absorbed parents and their estranged children. Real good stuff ! Here it is, along with its sequel :

 -  -

These two have been released on dvd here !

The best-known Dutch comedy from the 80's is probably this one :

 -

Flodder (1986)

Trailer : www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaxm6y-80h0

this is one i've been wanting to watch for an age and that is - a tiger's tale from 1987 starring c thomas howell,ann-margret and charles durning.

this seem pretty hard to get hold of,there's been no dvd release as of yet that i am aware off and the vhs is very rare here in the uk.

i would definitely check this out if it ever gets a dvd or blu ray release or even if i could find a rare uk vhs at a decent price.

I used to see the video around at second hand shops all the time in the 90's. It was *everywhere*!

Man, I was just thinking to myself "Where is Logan 5?" I was gonna make a thread on your whereabouts or send you a PM but I see you have posted recently so I assume you are back on board and in the land of the living.

I tried to watch Logan's Run a month or so back again but I couldn't get through it again despite Jenny Agutter's skimpy attire.
