    I used to watch the movies alot as a kid. Last night I thought about them again for some odd reason. I'm sure if I saw them again today I probably wouldn't like them as much.

    I remember Solarbabies! It had a Maurice Jarre (largely, if not entirely electronic) soundtrack and Jami Gertz.

    Big Shots used to be my little brother's favorite movie. He'd watch it about 5 times a week. I used to get so annoyed by it. I actually watched it again a year or two ago, and managed to be entertained by it. Mostly out of nostalgia.

    Solar Babies was another one of those movies that was on HBO every other day during the 80's. I probably saw it 20 times in a one year period. Even then I knew it was a bad movie, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it.

    Never even heard of Making Contact though. Must not have been on HBO.

    Making Contact was a movie about a kid who had a puppet in his closet that was posessed and had powers and stuff. I think the puppet was in a tuxedo, and had one of those glass things over one of his eyes, but I could be wrong. It was a crazy little movie. I haven't seen it in like 12 or 13 years, so I don't remember too much about it.

    I own Making Contact on VHS and I will be buying the 2-disc DVD release Anchor Bay is putting out at the end of the year.
    Crap, I just admitted I liked (and own) Making Contact. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I went and looked up Making Contact at Imdb, and I slightly remember it. I think I may have seen it years ago. I'll definately rent the DVD when it comes out. I have a fetish for any cheesy 80's movie.
    For some reason when I looked up Making Contact it made me remember Pulse, the Joey Lawrence movie where electricty killed people. Anybody remember that one?

    Ross,
    "Get some kerosene. It smells bad, but it makes a pretty light." [​IMG] That guy reminds me of the Voice of Doom old man from the Friday the 13th movies.
    The little next door neighbor was creepy, for some reason.
