    Now that I was thinking about Little Darlings I came up with a few others that I want on DVD and have yet to hear anything about:
    The Monster Squad
    Valley Girl
    Troop Beverly Hills
    Grease II
    Lucas
    License to Drive
    Special Editions of Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles & Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure,and Weird Science
    Can't Buy Me Love, Pretty in Pink, Cocktail, Flashdance, Some Kind of Wonderful, are all coming out in the fall so maybe I can see the others early next year. (hahaha)
    If anyone knows who owns the rights to any of these let me know.
    Are there any other cheesy 80's movies that anyone else is waiting for?

    I really wouldn't call those 'cheesy', but I may as well add more that I'd like.

    Continental Divide
    Dragonslayer (maybe in '03)
    Summer Lovers
    High Road to China
    Two of a Kind
    Prime Risk
    D.A.R.Y.L.
    Into the Night
    The Man With One Red Shoe
    Mischief
    Every Time We Say Goodbye
    Three O'Clock High
    Loverboy

    I hope at least a few of these are in the works. (I want to trash my VHS tapes)!

    Kathleen, since you brought up the topic, there is one movie that is very dear to me that usually gets a blank stare when I bring it up - it's called 'Surf II', and it involved Eddie Deezen trying to take over the world with this mind controlling soda. One of Eric Stoltz's early movies, as kind of a pre-Bill and Ted surf punk, by the way. It was completely goofy and lacking in redeeming qualities and I loved it so - used to have it on video and along with Strange Brew and Summer School, was one of my big big 80s favorites. I'd pay serious money to get this one on DVD!

    How about these old movies from the eighties.

    The Wizard

    Monster Squad

    Little Monster

    Summerschool

    Twins

    And if it came out in the eighties, Duck Tails the movie. I have a strange love for that one.

    "Surf II" is an excellent choice but I actually preferred "Surf I"

    Can't Buy Me Love is coming out 8/13. But, unfortunately, Disney's site appears to be right on this one--fullscreen only.

    I'll second Into The Night and The Wizard. I love Michelle Pfeiffer(ever since Ladyhawke:b) and The Wizard has been a favorite since it was released(might have something to do with the main character being a timid video game freak[​IMG])...

    Here's one that I don't believe has been discussed:
    Curse of the Blue Lights
    This one is a total cheese-fest. It drips cheese. It oozes cheese. It's a big old mound of cheese piled on top of more cheese. It's a Mount Everest of cheese.
    I so wish it were on DVD [​IMG]

    Well there on cheesy eighties movie that deserves to release on DVD, and my dad happen to put it on the tv a minute ago...Moving Violation. It screams cheesy with the girl from Twister (Bill Paxton's finace) having a little "car checkup", and other strange stuff.

    The Last American Virgin
    Up the Creek
    H.O.T.S. (although technically released in 1979)

    I think I misread the post but did the third poster say that Dragonslayer was or wasn't cheesy?
