I am totally flattered Johnny!! I love this poll idea!!! I need some time to think about my votes. As for 1978 they all get an A except Pink Panther! Was never a fan!
But really? "Hooper" is one of my all time favorites!! Every Which Way But Loose and of course Heaven Can Wait! I have seen all of these in the theater!!!
I remember watching Grease, Kramer vs Kramer, Amityville, Star Trek, and Moonraker in the cinemas. I might’ve gone to seen more but I don’t remember. Everything else except for Heaven Can Wait, I saw on HBO or other not long after their release.
I was 5 or 6 when Grease came out. I knew it was a musical but I thought there were going to be live singers and dancers because of the way the cinema looked.
Amityville made me scared of the dark until I was 9 or 10!
That is so cool Johnny! I didn't get to see many R rated movies in the theater because I was 10 years old! I love "Amityville." I saw the TV version of "Halloween" when I was a kid and even that version freaked me out! My parents took me to see JAWS in the dome! I couldn't sleep for a week and that was PG!
My John Carpenter obsession really kicked in in 1981. My parents took me to see "Escape From New York!"
I was going to mention "Oh God" with George Burns and John Denver but I was off a year! 1977! Underrated movie!
My parents took me to see horror IF it was devil-based (Omen, Amityville, etc.). They never took me to see any slasher films...they’re old school Catholics after all.
For slasher movies or other non-devil horror, I went with the eldest Blaze bro who’s 11 years older than me but looked much older. He used to tell me, “If the theater people ask, just say I’m your uncle”
Saw Friday the 13th in 3D that way, among others.
Saw Escape from New York with dad & a couple of bros. I remember after the movie he asked us, “Did you like it?” Of course we enthusiastically said “yeah”. He agreed with a “Yeah, I liked it too.” He talked about it in detail too, and dad isn’t too much of a talker actually. Saw First Blood with dad and the same 2 bros the year after.
Come to think of it, I clearly remember watching Aliens and Full Metal Jacket a few years later right after school (and still in my Catholic school uniform) with dad.
The Blazes have always gone to the movies.
