    Ah the great John Badham, at last, it's been 22 years since I last saw a film of his at the cinema, he hasn't had a hit in ages and I see he's now moved to TV, tsk tsk.

    I saw Wargames, Blue Thunder, Dracula and Saturday Night Fever at the cinema and I own all the above on dvd except Nick of Time and Another Stakeout.

    I've seen Saturday Night Fever more times than might be deemed healthy thanks to various female friends over the past 20 years or so... "ah ha ha ha staying alive staying alive" er sorry about that, um where was I? [​IMG]

    *1. Saturday Night Fever - A
    2. Wargames - A
    (don't know how many times I've seen this, but it's probably in a top 3 of movies that I've seen the most. I keep hoping one of these times that they'll play "Theaterwide Chemical and Biological Warfare" instead.)
    3. The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings - B-
    4. Short Circuit - B-


    Own: 1

    I'm interested in Dracula.
