Friday Fantastic Four

Well the Oscars are Sunday night.  I'll admit I watch the pre-show, but I am long in bed by they time they do the Best Picture award sometime after 3am in the East.  The pre-show's got it all from famous celebs dissing the host, to people you have never heard of, to Isaac Mizrahi feelin up Scarlett.  You have to wait for the actual show to start to see major stars slurring their way through speeches and the more banal and mundane remarks interspersed with interminable montages of people who we thought had died years ago.

But I digress - what we're really here for today is to ...

Name Your Four Favorite 1980s Movies:

  1. Hoosiers - Wonderful story, beautifully shot, good sports sequences and Gene Hackman actually acts rather than just shouting
  2. Raiders of the Lost Ark - Plenty of action, tons of humor and a pretty girl.
  3. Some Kind of Wonderful - Mary Stuart Masterson AND Lea Thomspson in the SAME movie.  What could be better?
  4. Stand By Me - How good were Wil Wheaton and River Phoenix in this?

See that wasn't that hard, was it?  Enjoy the show

In no particular order:
Purple Rain - yeah, it was wrong of me to watch considering I was maybe 10 years old.
Fatal Attraction - again, not appropriate to watch at my young age
Sixteen Candles
Ferris Buehler's Day Off
