Favourite Movie From Each Year Of The 1980s


#81

Gee, I hope I’m not the only one who has returned home drunk, put it on & belted out ‘Who wants to live forever?’ :joy:


#82

Mate, I don’t need to be drunk to do that. It is high on my list of want to play songs in the DJ thread, but I like it to much to subject it to the punters in there.


#83

You have my vote & support in :wink: our first-to-seven system, so I reckon it would make it through (you only need six votes). Then again, history, hey?

#85

No, honest haven’t seen it. But now I’m gonna look it up.


#86

I saw it again on tv this year.
Still really stands up.


#87

Dude he was coming home to his wife and kids for Xmas…and 1 thing led to another.


#88

Nobody’s sitting the kids in front of the telly to watch Die Hard and saying Merry Chistmas and a yippie-ki-aye, mother-■■■■■■■.


#89

What is the movie called? I am now intrigued.


#90

Like I said previously Gruber thought it was Xmas until McClane ■■■■■■ with his plans.
It’s set on Xmas Eve
It’s got 1 of the best Xmas songs ever by Run DMC.
And who could ever forget…


#91

Yes, loved that movie!


#92

Well you, we some people can but…who says a Xmas movie is suppose to be for the kids?
Take a look at Hans Cristian Anderson stories…all his Xmas stories have sad endings…but made into a movie and it’s all wonderful, happy, cheerful.
For instance are you going to tell your kids the true story of A little match Girl?


#93

It’s the difference between a Christmas movie and a movie that happens to be set at Christmas.
You can call Silent Night, Deadly Night a Christmas movie if you like, but I think that would be a bit silly.
But fine, Die Hard is a Christmas Movie in exactly the same way as that film.


#94

Also, Gremlins should not be considered a Christmas movie either, imo, because of the Santa Clause.


#95

Wasn’t Gizmo a Xmas :gift:.
Gremlins were made when the :gift: goes wrong!
Ever had a Xmas :gift: go wrong? My 1st bike went wrong when Nan had a ride of it. She fell off and near broke her ankle. She still tells stories about it. Aren’t they some of the best Xmas stories? The bike recovered.


#96

Mine can watch it.
they’ll still be trying to kill each other in a sugar induced state anyway.
Yippee ki yay little sister


#97

if this line isn’t worthy of an oscar i don’t know what is


#98

Shout out for BMX bandits.


#99

clearly, you rate iron man 3.


#100

Both commando and iron man 3 are both better than that overrated film sicario
