I must have watched Jumpin Jack Flash about 50 times between the ages of 7 and 9. Why???
before school for about three years.
but my little brother watched Santa Claus: The Movie every day between the ages of about 3 and 6. Which is a bit weird.
I did pretty much the same thing but with National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Awesome film.
both of these are incredible.
I think I achieved my first ever erection while watching that.
My best friend and I would watch this over and over again. It wasn't even as though it was the only Disney film we had or anything, we just really liked it for some reason.
Return to Oz, which was taped on the same video as Honey I Shrunk the Kids and the Witches. It's still my favourite video.
used to terrify me!! but it is so good.
Also: The Terminator, which I wasn't allowed to but used to sneak on. I used to fastforward the sex scene every time.
PS. it's one of the cheesiest sex scenes ever.
Don't go maligning the 1990's with that He-Man film. That shit comes from 1987. Word up.
The 1990's have enough awful stuff going on without you heaping in the 1980's detritus too!
and one about the biggest limo on the world or something
Captain chaos....dun dun dun.....
I used to watch Jurassic Park almost every day
I think it was the incredible dog frisbee sequence the film opened with that sucked me in again and again. I'd be curious to see it again to see what I make of it now.
YES. What was it with this film?!?
Or was it just that I always watched it on video? I remember watching it so many times. I really want to see it again now...
Every one of my friends had it, I remember, but strangely mine and their copies were always taped off the telly, not a legit version.
I owned on VHS was taped off the TV.
oh yeah, that kid got OWNED!
I saw it recently and still loved it. Though I find David a bit of a gimp.
never watched any film more than 3 times i dont think. My little sister used to watch Home Alone 3 every day, used to piss me off no end cos its the worst one.
Corey Haim, Charlie Sheen, Wynona Ryder, Kerri Green. Nothing much happens, but it's brilliant.
the key change is life-affirming
Had to skip the first 15 minutes every time though. Apollo Creed :'''(
though it always made me cry :(
to rent this every week from the video store. with the adventures of pippy longstocking
than the Land Before Time being on every Christmas Eve.
watch this as well. Bloody hell. All I did as a kid was watch films. This probably explains why I do film studies now, thinking about it.
He Man Masters of the Universe. Krull. Polly (the version of Pollyanna done with black gospel singers). Mac and me. Battle for Endor. Why did you pick on me? The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid. The man who wore tennis shoes. Neverending Story. DARRYL.
I guess you have terrible taste as a kid eh?
Myself and my brother were telling folk the other day how great a film that is.
Freaked me out and haunted my dreams for years....
I always thought that death star type weapon he uses was the coolest thing ever.
but around the time i was doing my GCSEs i watched Transformers: The Movie every day for about two months. it was a VHS release from 1987 or so and borrowed from a friend, i watched it so many times the audio detached from the video slightly.
And Little Shop of Horrors. And Housesitter. And Labyrinth. And one Disney one about a modern family who went back to Ye Olde Days and had to joust for some part to a time machine...
I wanted to be the blue robot. Blake I think he was called. I believe it's on DVD now but I'm not too sure about getting it.
Also, Hawk the Slayer and Short Circuit.
I hate Disney, rationally and irrationally in equal measure.
You think I should?
I love Kilmer...
One of kilmers best.
Kiss kiss bang bang
but apparently has a slightly different title. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092046/ My mum taped it off tv and I watched it regularly for years, then forgot about it, then it got accidentally taped over. I can still remember all the songs and probably most of the script. Does anyone else remember it?
i loved all of those old muppet films: the tale of the bunny picnic, the muppet musicians of brehmen, the frog prince, hey cinderella, etc.
they were always on the disney channel. late at night, they would show the dark crystal and labyrinth. both of those scared the living hell out of me as a kid.
The Muppet Musicians of Brehmen sounds intriguing!
it's about donkeys that have a band. i'm not joking.
my favorite one by far is the muppet frog prince. robin plays the frog prince! awwww! :)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cat_From_Outer_Space - incredible film. A talking Cat-alien with a collar that makes stuff levitate/move faster/other cool stuff!
The Richest Cat In The World - not as good as the out of space one. The cat talked, but they made it do that funny 'yawny jaw' thing so it looked like it was speaking, as opposed to the telepathy of the TCFOS.
Land Before Time (the first one)
had taped it off the telly, but had missed the beginning so never actually knew how she got into this mysterious land. only found out years later when i bought it on dvd.
see also: pippy long stocking, grease 2, batteries not included.
For non-Disney animation goodness. The bit with the Skeleton in the grandfarther clock asking for "Moooore Wiiiiiinnne" used to freak me out.
about that skeleton. seriously, i would always fast forward through that part of the video. :(
then again, i am the same kid that had to be taken out of the theater during "the lion king" because scar scared me so much.
Once a week at least for about 4 years.
Dog poo dog poo lovely lovely dog poo
Michael J Fox capitalism classic. Had loads of odd sex things that I didn't understand at the time... In fact I cant be sure I understood any of it.
For about 4 years...
Interview with a Vampire
I knew each verbatim
When it was Christmas time they would get played daily.
the Comic Strip feature. Highly inappropriate, but loved it and still do.
Drop Dead Fred
What About Bob
Secrets of nymph I think it was called.
And I'm not sure how weird iris but Fievel Goes West was my favorite.
& the rescuers down under
best childrens film ever!!!!
watched that weekly.
I can still recite the whole script perfectly.
And no school holiday was complete without watching the Highlander films.
