    2002 seems to have been the year for the cult 80s movies coming to DVD (Real Genius, UHF, Better off Dead, Top Secret, etc), what about the other lesser known movies like Hamburger the Movie? I remember renting this tape several times as a kid (partly cause of the gratuituous nudity). This movie was in the same spirit of Revenge of the Nerds, but I'd like to see it again in OAR!

    Somebody MUST release the 1983 masterpiece "Getting It On" on DVD- as far as I know it never made it to laserdisc, but is a movie of great historical importance!

    Hot Dog the Movie, I would buy it if it was released. I remember seeing all these titles in the two years Joe Bob Briggs first appeared on the Movie channel. I remember that he gave a movie a rating of 2 because "nobody pops their top in this one"

    Jesse, sounds like a hell of a double feature! Hardbodies 1 and 2 on a flipper perhaps, or do you want all the extras concerning both movies?[​IMG] :b
    I've always wondered who the hell was that hottie that was in kissing finale of pt. 2? Wow! is all I can say:b [​IMG] [​IMG] :wink: [​IMG]

    How about The Last American Virgin? (1982)
    Kickin' soundtrack, that '80s doll Diane Franklin and the first time I ever heard the word "crabs" described as something other than a crustacean.
    Oh, but the worst...ending...ever.

    Count me in on these overlooked gems. I used to watch a beat-up tape of Hamburger the Movie all the time. The final scenes with the Eating Club and the tourists at the restaurant are among my fondest B-movie memories...

    Ach, it is a sad day when you can't find "Squeeze Play," "Joysticks" or the Showtime favorite "Jokes My Folks Never Told Me" on DVD. Oh, to be 12 again and staying over at a friend's house who has Showtime to watch the latter.

    "Squeeze Play" is a Troma title, so it's likely that will show up before long.

    I am ashamed that I didn't check to see that "Squeeze Play" is out on DVD. So I humbly substitute "King Frat"
    http://us.imdb.com/Title?0079406
    (which I haven't seen, only heard about) instead.

    How about the 1984 classic, Night Patrol? Starring Linda Blair, Pat Paulsen, and Murray Langston (the Unknown Comic); with Billy Barty, Andrew Dice Clay, and Pat Morita. At the time, I thought this was one of the funniest movies ever made. I still think the cock fighting scene is one of the funniest scenes ever filmed.

    "Sorry you lost, but maybe its the color of your hair"
    If I remember correctly, Tim Robbins was in both Joysticks and Fraternity Vacation.
