MOVIES, ONE OF THE FEW THINGS GOOD TO COME OUT OF THE '80's

TODAY I WAS WATCHING AN OLD MOVIE WITH MY SPECIAL LADY FRIEND. IT WAS AN OLD ONE I'VE SEEN MANY, MANY TIMES, "LOOK WHO'S TALKING". AND WE GET TO THE SECENE WHEN JONH TRAVOLTA LOOKS AT KIRSTIE ALLEY AND SAYS "YOU MAKE MY MOUTH WATER" WITH A THICK NEW YORK ACCENT AND GIVES HER A KISS AND IMMEDIATELY SHOVES HER FACE AWAY. NOW I'VE DONE THAT EXACT MOVE MORE THAN A FEW TIMES TO MY SPECIAL LADY FRIEND, AND AS SOON AS WE GET THROUGH THAT SCENE, I GET A PUNCH IN THE ARM, AND I'M LAUGHING BECAUSE I ALREADY KNOW WHAT IT'S FOR.

I'M REALIZING HOW MUCH OF AN INFLUENCE '80's MOVIES, AND EARLY '90's MOVIES FOR THAT MATTER, HAD ON ME GROWING UP. RANDOM QUOTES ARE SAID, AND EVEN MY ACTIONS. NOW I KNOW MY PARENTS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR RAISING ME AS A KID, BUT THEY HAD LOTS OF HELP FROM AN EXTRA HAND KNOWN ONLY AS HBO-

  1. Ditto!Me and the lil lady have watched every 80's movie listed plus at least once since snow started flyin.If I added up all the hours of my life I've spent watching all these movie's over and over it would probably be pretty creepy,I don't give a shit:)The only thing I would add would be THE BURBS and THE GREAT OUTDOORS,two of my personal favorites!

  2. HOLY SHIT! I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT BACK TO THE FUTURE. IT IS NOW A 4-WAY TIE FOR FIRST, OR A NOW 3-WAY TIE FOR SECOND, DEPENDING ON YOUR OPINION-
