    I missed out on this thread when it started so thought Id add on a few things.. First, +1 for Smithereens.

    I rewatched Breaking All The Rules recently. I love that movie and I know a few here do too. When I was a kid, my best friend loaned me a tape of it when it came out so I've always been a fan of it. In general, I like 70s-80s movies that were filmed at theme parks anyway.

    Aside from the plot, it's just like a nice slice of the 80s preserved on film. Carolyn Dunn, Rachel Hayward, and Michele Scarabelli are all beautiful and great in it. It's really too bad there hasn't even been a widescreen version of it released still. Last year there was speculation that Walt was going to rescue it. I think this is one of those movies that deserves it.

    Also been watching some Terrahawks and Space 1999 on tv.

    Yeah, really good movie, I'll definitely get it at the next Criterion flash sale (yes, I know about Barnes and Noble, but when I buy from Criterion I get those points. 500 and it's a $50 gift card).

    Got bitten by a nostalgia bug on Saturday and watched the VHS (Tri-Star "Drive In Classics" series) of "I Was a Teenage Werewolf" and then "Teenage Frankenstein". Was mulling watching the VHS of Elvira's presentation of "Frankenstein's Daughter" but found an old tape of nothing but Drive-In concession stand ads. Totally fun!

    Spent the last couple months poisonin my skull just snortin dvds in my total isolation scene complete with MREs. Groovin on mostly boots of abandonware, as thats been the route I hadda go. Saw Fort Ti in 3d recently (William Castle, 1963), Silent Madness in 3d, Can you keep it up for a week?, a ton of don kirschners rock concert and Solid Gold, Bwana Devil 3d, Hallucination Strip, the mysterious dr. Satan, The truth According to satan, The big bang (cartoon from around 84), Dr. Frankenstein on campus, Andy warhols my hustler and Chelsea Girls, Elevator Girls in Bondage with the Cockettes, Alabama's Ghost, The Goddess Bunny documentary (she of the cursed gif!),Carry on up the jungle, Just a gigolo (bowie, kim novak, marlene dietrich), Tilt with brooke shields, old drive in intermission reels, and catching up on Dark Shadows, Love American Style, High Chaparral, and the Gary Coleman cartoon show, Jana of the jungle, and next step beyond and a ton of titles that were on USA Up...All Nite like Oddballs, A polish vampire in burbank (and lookin up rhe Ronda bumpers on youtube), and some that shoulda been like Jokes my folks never told me, The night they robbed big bertha's, and Best chest in the west with Dick Shawn hosting. So its been a wild time in isolation. Pretty much completed my dvd collection and now just diggin dvdr sludge.
