in reference to your blog dagispojken

i swear i thought the exact same thing i saw on your blog about the iron man trailer.
dont know if its the same one as being shown in europe, but there's one on rotation in the states thats about 4 mins long.
it does look bad ass though and downey jnr looks like he's nailed it, he also looks/sounds fucking hilarious in tropic thunder.

edit: just saw you reference it from the onion, so its the same trailer. my bad.

I watched that at the cinema when it was out. I hated it with a fiery passion.

Career Girls - Enjoyed it - especially the flashbacks to uni days.

r u on drugs fella? pretty in pink, breakfast club, sixteenm candles and some kind of wonderful is hughes best work ever FACT! Ferris and weird science are good flicks, but easily topped by other outstanding hughes comedy work like vacation, planes tranes and so on,.

for the ultimate in 80s cheeze check Reign of Fire, has a fantastic scene with rob lowe all sad during new years eve, running and sobbing in the rain

"matthew mccouneaugaogounaughey with a shawed head and a beard" - only reason I watched it.

ja, i think it's the new trends in trailers, you dont have to go to the actual film to know the whole plot, i love it

pretty in pink and sixteen candles were always a little too cheezy and girly imo especially when put next to weird science, breakfast club and ferris. i agree they dont come close his later stuff like vacation (and euro vacation), planes trains and even home alone. for me though, uncle buck is the best hughes movie.

what film is that rob lowe one?

love 80's flicks (especially the comedies), especially the more obscure ones. always a great nostalgia trip of the styles and sounds etc

I'm an 80s kid. I would add Indiana Jones and Star Wars trilogies to the list.

Chink kid with the teeth is my favourite bit on the Goonies.

class - loved it when the girls boob pops out

wall street - the film which is basically one long quote. my brother and his friends could probably quote the whole film, which annoyed me as a yoot, but i've since watched it and it does pretty much sum up america in the 80's.

it was a time before massive cgi budgets, ancillary markets were just beginning to take shape and pay or play deals were unheard of.

i blame robert redford and his sundance bandwagon. preaching independent cinema as a saviour of film. reality isnt always better.
