I'm enjoying all of the lists compiled and nostalgia for the early 80's.
CSB: I'll never forget when Raiders of the Lost Ark came out. I was 6. There were no Showcase multiplex cinemas. One time we stood in a line around the corner and down the street from a 2-theater cinema. A cinema employee came around the corner and yelled that Raiders was sold out. I was upset, but I didn't cry. It would have been the 3rd time I would have seen it. Would have cost about $3.00, meaning I could have seen one of the alltime great movies 3 times for a total of $9.00.
You don't have to ask me why I won't pay $12.50 to see Transformers once.
I'm 37, and you still get one warning: get off my lawn. Except Bay and Bruckheimer. They don't get a warning. They get a choice: broom handle broken off in the ass or mouth.

Skyfrog: bdub77: I liked 1985 (as a kid of course):

Brewster's Millions
Rambo First Blood Part II
View to a Kill
Fletch
Goonies
DARYL
Back to the Future
Mad max Beyond Thunderdome
European Vacation
Weird Science
Pee Wee's Big Adventure
Real Genius
Teen Wolf
Cocoon

Just sayin...

The Breakfast Club
The Color Purple
Clue
Fright Night
Spies Like Us
St. Elmos's Fire
Jewel of the Nile
Rocky IV
Witness

and that's still just scratching the service. 1985 was probably one of the greatest years for movies ever.


Add "Better Off Dead" to that list.

That's why I never really saw ET until it came out on video, despite being a movie geek. Raiders was out in theaters for over a year. So my grandfather took me to all the PG movies and my crazy uncle took me to movies like The Thing, Blade Runner and Poltergeist but when the subject of ET came around I always opted to see Raiders again instead.

When I was a kid shiznit like Stand By Me, The Goonies, Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, The Explorers, Short Circuit, Howard the Duck etc etc were completely awesome films to watch. This has not changed. The 80's were the perfect blend of wit, talent, and camp.

My copy of Goonies shared the VHS with Paint Your Wagon.

Most of these films have not come out, likely a couple of them will bomb and disappoint. But you cannot say that the film industry isn't trying. That list looks entertaining. I saw the Avengers last week and I saw the Hunger Games in theaters and I can say so far I have been entertained. Every year there are a couple of great movies. This year there are a LOT of great summer fun films.

And also don't forget the Winter films this year include THE FARKING HOBBIT.

Walker: Did they really put Xanadu in there? But yeah, I saw it in the theaters that summer when I was 13. And the bouncing boobs of PG rated "Airplane". First boobs I'd ever seen in a movie.

I will at least be seeing Prometheus and Dark Knight Rises in the theater. After that I'll be waiting for Paranorman and Brave.

Word up home skillet!

we need an 80's channel on tv.

Of course the way things work now it would probably be 24 hour marathons of reality shows.

I know it has already been mentioned, but 1984 or 1985 were probably the best years for movies.

I could probably go for a very long time only watching movies from those years.

Are you farking kidding me?

The Hunger Games - give you that
The Avengers - more comic book movies,oh boy
Dark Shadows - whatever
Battleship - based on a board game/toy. explosions and no story for the retard crowd
Men in Black II - reboot/sequel
Brave - dont know it
Prometheus - more Lord of the Rings type movies...
GI Joe Retalliation - see Battleship
Snow White and the Huntsman
Ice Age Continental Drift - reboot/sequel

2012-05-11 01:26:37 PM  
Lots of those movies were considered throw-aways at the time, and some actually were. I remember making out during most of Smoky and the Bandit II. The only must-see for me was The Blues Brothers.

No, your post is the definition of poor trolling. "Prometheus - more Lord of the Rings type movies..."? You don't even know what you're criticizing.

And attacking a film for being a comic book movie is "Sarah Palin scissoring Michelle Bachmann" levels of stupid. Comic books are a medium for telling stories, and the only criterion you can judge them on is if the story is told well.

The Avengers is well written, acted, and directed, and manages to also emphasize the value of honor, courage, and friendship.

You are an idiot. If you are trolling, you did a poor job, and if you are sincere, you are too stupid to even understand movies.

I don't get you at all. The industry is indeed investing big dollars in a large number of films that look to be entertaining. Is your contention that only original material is trying? If that is your point, it is stupid. And so are you. stupid.

The Hype for Howard The Duck was incredible.

"How was it", I asked.
Stricken he looked at me.

Fano: Tax Boy: gunga galunga: Gandhi

Best. Summer. Movie. EVAR

I remember being 10 years old and waiting and waiting and waiting: "When is Gandhi finally coming out?" I would whine nightly to the poster of Ben Kingsley that hung over my bed.

And then, my dreams came true. After waiting in line for 45 seconds outside the movie theater with an enthusiastic crowd of 8, I finally got to see it.

3 and a half hours later -- I was blown away. I must have gone back 5 times to see it.

And the toys and action figures that came out! I sold my mint Gandhi Mcdonald's happy meal boxes and toys on ebay decades later -- it paid for college.

Sure -- 1982 had Wrath of Khan, ET, and Conan, but for me, it will always be The Summer of Gandhi.
The trailer for gandhi ii really got me stoked. I dreamed about it for months


To me, the peak of the franchise will always be Gandhi III: No More Mr. Nice Guy....

Came here to say THIS. Alamo Drafthouse is doing a Summer of 82 fest - every movie shown on the day of its premier, 30 years later. God I love this town.

Yeah, that sounds like a fun place. I've heard others talking about it before.

off the top of my head...
Pink Floyd, The Wall

Queen, The Game


Dire Straits, Making Movies
Talking Heads, Remain in Light


/csb: Dire Straits opened for Talking Heads on their American Tour in 1978/79.

Airplane! came out the week I had my daughter. Since newborns sleep all the time, we went to the drive in (get off my lawn) Friday night when she was 6 days old.

Laughed so hard I popped an episiotomy stitch. Saw it again the next weekend. So before my daughter was two weeks old she had been to Airplane! twice.
 
2012-05-11 11:11:27 PM  
looking at the list of 1980 movies, my picks would be:

The Blues Brothers
The Elephant Man
The Gods Must Be Crazy
Ordinary People
Kagemusha
Coal Miner's Daughter
 
2012-05-12 10:20:56 AM  
As an aside, The Wall came out in November of 1979, not in 1980. However Another Brick In The Wall went to #1 in 1980, so I'll award you 1/2 a point.

To the person who said if you don't spend nearly the entire year in a theater seat, you suck.....well then I guess I suck, because none of those movies, aside from The Dark Knight Rises, appeal to me even remotely.

Peaceboy: I remember going to about half of those. A highlight: seeing Used Cars and Caddyshack as a double feature. Awkward: with my mom.


Mom took me to see "The Jerk" when it came out. I was five. An aunt took me and a cousin to see "Jaws 2" when I was four. Times were a lot different then.

Peaceboy: I remember going to about half of those. A highlight: seeing Used Cars and Caddyshack as a double feature. Awkward: with my mom.

my mom and 2 other moms took me and my buddies to see "Prophecy [1979]", the moms sat in the row behind us and thought we were terrible kids because we laughed our asses off at the "sleeping bag" incident.

Balchinian: Plus, Jaws was still held over from the previous year in damn near every theater everywhere.


in 1975 i was 15, a friend and i saw the movie Jaws 13 times in a space of 2 weeks, and as an adult now i can say i traumatized myself.
Walking at night id imagine sharks jumping out at me from behind the bushes walking home from my buddies.
in the shower i would NOT close my eyes.
Go to the beach and come within 10 feet of the water? NO freakin way.

im over it now.

mostly.
