    Movies-your favorites

    I thought this was an interesting thread, these don't have to be todays movies. Infact the idea of this thread is to post cheesy movies, or movies from the 80's or 90's you enjoy.

    Some of my favorites

    Look who's talking
    Who's that girl
    Who framed roger rabbit
    Adventrues in babysitting
    dirty dancing
    pretty woman
    Ghost
    Teenwitch
    Manniquien 2 on the move
    The Wizard of oz
    Breakfast club
    Poetic Justice

    My three favourite movies, in no particular order:

    Don's Party
    Local Hero
    Near Dark
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    ...too many to list!

    I've gone through times where I would watch one movie pretty much every day for weeks at a time. Footloose and Xanadu have had the honors of being that movie.

    I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I love Xanadu ,because of the terrible dialogue and bad acting plus the whacked out theme (roller skating muses???), but I absolutely love the music in the movie (ELO!) and the special effects in the scenes. It's like they have one really neat scene followed by a really lame one, followed by another great one, all through the movie.

    Some of my favorite scenes are the opening (where the mural comes to life one girl at a time in slo-mo), the cartoon of Kira and Sonny, Olivia Newton John's dance with Gene Kelly, and the ending where ONJ sings the title song and a medley of other songs.

    I might have to watch Xanadu when I get home tonight. It's been a long time since I've watched it!

    Re: Movies-your favorites

    Forgot to mention Men in Black (1 & 2) and Austin Powers (1 & 2)! Austin Powers 3 (Goldmember) was not so good.

    I also didn't mention most of the sequel movies like Star Wars and Harry Potter where I liked just about all of the series. Return of the Jedi was my favorite of the Star Wars movies but the Empire Strikes Back wasn't far behind it. I didn't like most of the prequels, though. The only one of those I liked was 3, Revenge of the Sith. And I still like the original Star Wars sequels better than it. I liked the original Police Academy but not so much all the sequels. All of the Die Hard sequels are pretty good but some I like better than others.

    I too love the sound track to Xanadu and have it recorded on a tape cassette. I really should put it on a CD or get it on the computer somehow.
