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.
I need a new signature.

"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 freakPosted Image)...

Kathleen,

All of these titles have been discussed here at one time or another. You can check into the history by doing a search on this forum.

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 Posted Image

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.
I need a new signature.

For whatever reason, this just makes me think of the "This movie's gonna make "House Party" look like "House Party 2!" line from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

And while I'm posting today, I'd like to thank Victoria, BC's own Jason Whyte for using my "Jack Lemmon" statement regarding Glengarry Glen Ross in his sig file. I feel like I have now made it here at the HTF.

Funniest line I have ever read in DVD a review: "'The Simple Life' stars rich, spoiled friends Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie as two rich, spoiled friends who are taken out of their posh Los Angeles lifestyle and deposited in a small town in Arkansas..."

Anchor Bay provided it two years ago. Still runs about $25-$30, though. Look for it at Suncoast or Borders.

Well, I admit this is a pretty obscure (and not particularly funny) joke, but since nobody got it yet, I'll explain.

There is no "Surf I." It's one of the gags of "Surf II" that it was released with that title but there was no first movie.

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