Of that list the only one I would re-watch is Aliens. 80s
comedies and romcoms are dire. DIRE.

OK on second thought I admit would rewatch Lost Boys for
Sax Man.

Hold on I am receiving a late breaking bulletin that I think
Heathers is also pretty OK.

learning about cow tipping, heh

Excellent selection. Ellen Barkin and Peter Weller looked
like living 80s graphic design in that movie. Plus it's
completely bonkers.

It's just so over the top in every way and that's why it
works. If they had shown restraint or "good taste" in some
aspects it would have fallen apart.

Plus it had Jeff Goldblum in that Wynona's Big Brown Beaver
cowboy costume.

back on topic,
gary busey's bulletproof (1988).
gary busey's catchphrase is literally "butthorn" and it
features the singularly most awkward rape scene in the
history of cinema. parts of it were so flagrantly terrible
that i found myself stewing on the whole concept of a movie
itself: like, alright, i know what you're trying to do with
my emotions here, but this is such crap i can't, i just
can't -- but, yeah, isn't that weird? how movies are a
tunnel we subject ourselves to; we want our emotions
manipulated, with plot and characters and music

so i thot "let's just blow that up right now" and made
this

Better off Dead is an ok John Cusack romcom but far better
is Rob Reiner's The Sure Thing. And then Say anything... is
also better than... Better off dead.

The Goonies which I watched again recently did not
disappoint, I know some people say it didn't age well. They
are wrong.

The Lost Boys is brilliant, and yes I do like Sax Man. I
remember when I first the film at the cinema when it came
out and thinking Sax Man was the single greatest song if
ever heard, I struggled to comprehend how music could be
that good.

I was just googling around and Sax Man's story has
a happy ending.

Great story. All this time I didn't know the song was a
cover, I've only ever been about the Sax Man version. I'm
giving the original a go.... now.

Does anyone else get emotional when they find ET face down
in the river, that always gets me that

Points: 3180 Status: Regular | Followup to Hyperflake: #02604979



yes, it was my favourite film as a kid
i was scared of e.t. at first, shocked when he died, crazy
happy when he came back (telefon, telefon) and sad when he
left

the whole spectrum of emotions, just because of that potato
from outer space, damn

the music is awesome. i rewatched it last winter and just
saw it popping up on my netflix and i almost clicked

as i kid i always hoped for a second film, where e.t. comes
back. the only official sequel was a commercial

apparently there was going to be some sort of horror quasi

Anyone remember the VHS display in their local corner shop,
all up on the wall, and the smell of corner shops that go
with it...?
Looking at all the covers and wondering wtf they were all
about, when ur 5, fucking brilliant.

shop with my dad and brother, used to go every weekend, get
some Charles Bronson film, some sci fi action film
invariably with Rutger Hauer in it.

Do you remember those sensors you had to walk over when you
went into a library and made a clicking sound

nice one, interesting to see we shared a sort of commonality
even though you're in America. I really miss going to the
library with my dad, getting books, tapes and cds. I guess
it was like a prototype of surfing the internet
