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 &amp; 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.
That is awesome! You had an older brother take you!!! Lucky!! I am the oldest in my family! Hence if I had an older brother or sister perhaps I would have seen RUSH in the late 70's. Oh well.
Another movie I loved although in the early 80's was "Poltergeist." Blew my young mind!
"Friday The 13th" in 3D is underrated!!!
Poltergeist...saw that with both parents & a couple of brothers. I think the dude peeling his face off was the scariest bit. One bro and I still scream this Craig T. Nelson line to this day, “YOU SONOFABITCH!!! YOU ONLY MOVED THE HEADSTONES! DIDN’T YA?!! DIDN’T YA?!! WHY?!!! WHY?!!! AHHHH...!!!!” Or something almost identical to that
Here, let’s check it
OMG! You are too funny dude I had the "headstones" scene in my head when I typed that last post! EPIC!
You’d get a kick out of MarkyBlaze & I doing the line. We try to outdo each other...yet neither of us actually do a good rendition of Craig T.Nelson We just scream louder! Marky’s 14 year old daughter thinks we’re a couple of nerds...and she’s pretty much spot on
That would be awesome dude
I can't afford it now but I am serious. I will fly to Japan one year to hang out with you.
The list is long man.
I want to fly to see Pat, Rod, Toy R, Cat 3, hell the list goes on and on!
