Weird science is my all-time favourite eighties teen movie by a mile. Am I alone?
I like Breakfast Club.
Weird Science, great film! So was the Breakfast Club, decent soundtrack as well, Simple Minds etc
But where can you buy Weird Science on DVD??
But aint paying that price for it!!
No me either! And I usually end up paying damn custom charges when I order from amazon.com Will have to wait for someone sensible to get it in - like play.com Thanks anyway Jase
I'd take The Breakfast Club over Weird Science but probably my favourite 80s teen movie is Less Than Zero.
Some might argue that Robert Downey Jr. probably didn't need to do much acting to play his role so well...
It also features a great and varied (from Roy Orbison to Slayer!)soundtrack including Glenn Danzig's 'You & Me (Less Than Zero)'. It also features The Bangles' version of 'Hazy Shade of Winter'.
i prefered real genius myself. great eighties flick not too sure if you can get it on DVD yet.
Not seen it myself. It's due out on R2 soon (worth waiting for because it will be anamorphic and only £9.99):
And is available on R1 (not anamorphic, widescreen letterbox and £15.99):
Val Kilmer's in it.. *shudder*
What About Footloose.
Or the Secret of my success with Michael J Fox which was better. I just mentioned Footloose for effect.
Loved the Secret of My Success. Sings - I'm walking on sunshine Available for £7.99 on R2 from Play.com as well
Glad you wasn't serious about footloose
Check out this review of Footloose from Someone on IMDB. Were they Crazy.
A Truly Magical Film.
Footloose is a brilliant film. Kevin Bacon gives as usual an amazing performance as he plays Ren MacCormack here. Other great performances come from Lori Singer, John Lithgow, Dianne Wiest, Chris Penn and Sarah Jessica Parker. The music is really good and the dance sequences are amazing. Footloose is a must see and it deserves a 10/10
Iv'e done it now I can't get the bloody theme tune out of my Head. All I can hear is Kenny Logins "Footloose! Footloose.
What about Teen Wolf another classic Michael J Fox Film.
Howay, Its not that bad, I think its so cheesy its funny.
Darn! Forgot Teen Wolf
This is turning out to be an expensive day
Edit - Not such an expensive day. Can't find Teen Wolf on DVD
Why isn't Breakfast Club or Secret of my Success anamorphic?
Pretty in Pink?
Some Kind of Wonderful?
Excellent. Pretty in Pink due out on DVD soon as well
I seem to recall About Last Night and St Elmo's Fire being rather good as well.
But let's not forget Ferris Bueller's Day Off - awesome
What about Oxford Blues, starring Rob Lowe and the bloke out of Arachniphobia.
I just found this website www.fast-rewind.com. Dedicated to 80's movies.
List all the realease and upcoming 80's films on DVD.
Boy there's some films I saw on video while bunking off from the 6th form on there.
Including the stunning Can't buy me love. How could I forget that one.
i'll throw another spanner in the works - the outsiders - absolute classic
The Outsiders is fantastic. Love the theme tune by Stevie Wonder as well We were forced to read the book when I was a wee lad at school... But I prefered the film.
Ha, I had to read it in english as well. And it was better than the film( that we got to watch as a treat after the book).
But you don't get a soundtrack with the book
I'm older than you which means they must have left it on the curriculum
I read the book at school and i think it's better then the film. Robert frosts poem "nothing gold can stay" is my fav part
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
Best excuse I've heard yet to buy a lady silver, Sean, and save a few bob
Gold is only popular with mike reid, jimmy savile. and car sale's men these day's.
Have you bought your bird a sov
No. Wouldn't go with her shell suit mate
And her really tight pearm, pushing the pram with a fag end hangin out
Never liked that one Encaser
But I like the
