Sgt. Peppers & The Lonely Movies Of The 80s...

I'm sitting here watching Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on DVD—it's one of those movies I love, even though it is completely campy. I remember seeing this as small child and loved it then too. Anyway, I figured I'd read some of the user reviews on the Amazon's web site—which is where I purchased the DVD. After reading through the reviews, I noticed a link the another flick from the past I loved, The Pirate Movie starring Kristy McNichol and Christopher Atkins. Realize, I was under the age of 10 when I saw all these movies for the first time. I think these movies both struck home with me as a kid because of my love of music—and the fact that I thought Kristy McNichol was hot.

Anyway, I was prompted to google the net for the phrase "'the pirate movie' dvd" and came across a really cool site The 80's Movie Rewind which is a site completely geared towards movies released in the 80s. There's lost of really indepth information on each site and it includes a search engine to try to find the films on DVD. Just figured I'd share the link. Here are some of my favorite more obscure flicks from the 80s:

  • 3 'O Clock High
  • Amazon Women On The Moon
  • Can't Buy Me Love
  • Eddie & The Cruisers
  • Fright Night
  • Happy Together
  • House
  • The Hitcher
  • The Last Starfighter
  • My Bodyguard
  • Night Of The Comet
  • Savannah Smiles
  • Spinal Tap
  • Summer School
  • They Call Me Bruce

There was a ton of other films I left off—ones that were more popular. I pretty much liked every flick that John Cusack and Patrick Dempsey made in the 80s.
