    I was having an interesting conversation with other people in a chatroom about what movie they wanted to see, but they were too young to watch it? I got some interesting reesults. I happen to miss the original ghostbusters movie when it was released in theatres.

    I was curious about others on this subject.

    The one that bothered me the most was Poltergeist. I was seven or eight and all the other kids at school saw it, but my mom wouldn't let me. I totally could have handled it, as I was already a horror fan. But my mom did let me see Aliens when I was eleven, so I forgive her.

    I missed Raiders and insisted on going to see Temple Of Doom. The film gave me nightmares for weeks!!!

    Alien

    My cousin who was 4.5 years older than I was had a 18" alien toy and a USS Nostromo hat with "scrambled eggs" and of course rubbed it in constantly that I couldn't see the movie.

    I was born in 1986, so there's thousands of films that came out before I was born, that I'm only now being able to try and make up for. I was lucky enough to have some pretty cool parents, "Ryan, here's five bucks, go rent some tapes." Score!

    I thnink that my first R-Rated film in theatres was Half-Baked, heh. I remember renting Clerks and getting yelled at for the "37" scene, mainly because it was 7:00 in the morning and I had to get ready for school. heh.

    The Exorcist

    My Dad had read the book and could not wait for the movie...he actually went to go see it and came back and told me that he didn't think it was appropriate for a 12 year old (despite my loving horror movies since I was about 6...)

    Heh heh, probably the biggest reason why I'm addicted to Netflix right now is because now I can see all the films that my parents wouldn't let me see as a kid! Then again, most of the films I wanted to see were horror flicks & I was probably too scared to see 'em anyway! I scared VERY easily back then!

    Recently I discovered that the 1981/2 flick Pieces seems to have been delayed at Nflix; it was in my queue & had the dreaded "Very Long Wait" attached to it, then it was inexplicably shoved back down to the Saved portion of my queue. UGH!! [​IMG] But, I remember distinctly the ad in the local paper; a newsprint pic of a shiny chainsaw with the words "You don't have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre." Pretty chilling...

    As for Die Hard, it was released the summer after I turned 17 & could go to R-rated films. Trouble was that I didn't have my driver's license then & the only guy I knew with a license & a car refused to go! [​IMG]

    None. I remember seeing all the wonderful action, gore and bewbies of Conan the Barbarian and The Road Warrior when I was 8 years old.

    The Exorcist.

    I was about 10 when this came out. For years, had to settle seeing an edited TV version. Only when the dvd came out several years ago did I finally see the theatrical version.

    Still, after all these years, The Exorcist remains an excellent but disturbing film. [​IMG]

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not only did I have to wait a few years after it became a midnight cult phenomenon, but I needed someone who could drive me to the theater at midnight. I was 16 and my older brother just comes into my room and says, "Okay, let's go see Rocky Horror." Boy, that was a great experience!

    I got chucked out half way through Batman Returns when I went to see that because I was too young.

    Yep, some little old lady came up the isle with a torch, shined it in our eyes and asked me & my father if we would leave the screening.

    I could understand somewhat if you were by yourself, but the fact that you were with your dad makes this a headscratcher.

    I wish I could've seen Back to the Future in first-run theaters. I did see Part II and III in theaters.

    Born in 1979, I obviously couldn't have seen Apocalypse Now, E.T., Raiders, Empire, Jedi, etc. Well, I could have, just wouldn't have understood what the hell was going on. [​IMG]

    I love the new (for lack of a better term )"Bondish" type music they've used in the last couple of episodes.

    After Columbine, they really started enforcing them around me.

    I remember going to see Scream 2 in 97 with some friends. I was 11. We got in fine.

    Two years later, we tried getting into Dogma and were turned away. After that, we had to wait 4 years before any theater in the area would let us in to R-rated features. Thankfully, once the movies we missed came out on DVD, neither Blockbuster nor Best Buy had any problem renting/selling them to us so I didn't end up missing much [​IMG]
