Films...

Post by Auf Wiedersehen, Pet » Wed Feb 13, 2013 9:00 pm

I have a thing for 80's films, and I think I have seen The Goonies at least 500 times, if not more. I have on my Ipod at the moment (Been on it years now), Back To The Future, The Breakfast Club, Die Hard, Predator and a few more, and I can watch them over and over.....

Anyone got any 80's faves?

Some crackers there!
Big Trouble in Little China is on one if the Sky Movies channels now almost every night. A great film, out there and a touch odd, but great to watch. Kurt Russell was and I'm sure still is a great actor, he had great timing, and could be extremely humourous.....

I don't do films. I just don't have the patience to sit through them. I have occasionally gone to the pictures to keep a girlfriend happy, or to take the kids to see something, but I'll always fall asleep during the film.

I think the last film I went to see at the pictures by choice was Rocky 4, when a group of us bunked off school to see it. According to Wiki that would have been in 1985.

& I only possess one film on dvd (the Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads film). Yet I can watch AWP (or Porridge, or The Likely Lads) for hours on end

I'm with you, Hedley.

I can live off of my DVD collection. AWP, Minder, Rising Damp, Professionals, Sweeney, On the Buses, Royle Family. No need or reason to watch modern TV. Except for Family Guy - that's all my DVR is used for anymore.

I absolutely love watching films of all types and from all eras, but dont watch anything on TV these days. If I do watch something from TV (such as Silent Witness) I have to get the DVD. You cant beat going to the cinema to watch a film. Just been to see The Impossible, the film about the family who survived the tsunami starring Ewan Mcgregor and all I can say is wow!

McVicar is one that I know off by heart.(I don't care how late is I ain't going home). The blowjob scene is way erotic.
The real McVicar hates the film apparently.

The Firm was great.I still can't watch anything with Oldman without thinking 'Bexy boy'.

'Plenty' from 1985.
Meryl Streep, Charles Dance, Tracey Ullman, John Gielgud, Ian McKellen, Sam Neill, Sting and Christopher Fairbank as 'Spencer'. Its hard going but I find it worth the effort every time. Much like 'Scandal !'

Anyone got any 80's faves?
I used to love "The Breakfast Club" when I was 15 or 16! Could really identify with some of them, especially Alison (played by Ally Sheedy). And "Don't you forget about me" by Simple Minds is one of my all-time favourite songs! 8-)

I've seen the Goonies too. But they never meant that much to me. The whole film was a bit confusing, in my opinion... Sean Astin was a cute little kid in the film. Today I can hardly watch him anymore when he's on the telly somewhere... Isn't it amazing how people are so cute as kids. And then when they grow up they lose all of their charm all of a sudden... :roll:

I've seen the film on DVD, and I have also watched the comments from the main actors and the director (Richard Donner?). It was very interesting. And not surprising that Sean Astin was the first to leave.... :roll:

One of my favourite 80s movies was definitely "Jumpin' Jack Flash". Definitely my favourite film with Whoopi Goldberg! I remember going to the cinema every Friday afternoon after school for a couple of weeks, just to watch this film!! 8-)

Magowan mentioned "The Blues Brothers". That's one of my favourites as well. Going to a convent school for girls only, this one was a kind of "cult movie" for some of us...
"We're on a mission from God!" 8-)

And "Das Boot" really is one of the best German movies ever made!! I cannot recommend it enough...

Have a nice day,

Saw "The Fourth Protocol" with Michael Caine and Pierce Brosnan last night; an enjoyable and realistically intense spy thriller. Is it me or am I the only person who finds this and "Tailor Of Panama" better spy flicks with Brosnan in than the ones he did for Bond after he did "GoldenEye"? 10/10
