I’ll tell you what happened to them, they ended up in the $5 DVD bin at Wal-Mart.  And some of them are so worth it.  You know, they may be cheesy and dated with hairstyles or lingo but who can deny your favorite movies from when you were younger.

I watched Lethal Weapon the other night and it was just as good as I remember it.  Even though it has been several years since I saw it last.  It got me thinking about so many other movies that I have in my collection that I have not seen for years.  I am going to spend the rest of the week watching movies that are at least 15 years old or more.  I just bought Kelly’s Heroes at Wal-Mart and The Dirty Dozen is sounding really good.

These are all movies with decent stories, or not so decent stories and good action.  They do not have too many special effects and are not related to computers.  Watch Lethal Weapon and laugh at the cell phones.  Watch Wargames and laugh at the computers.  At least they are not Remakes.

One of my favorite movies of all time is Red Dawn.  They are redoing that for next year and I am going to be on the front lines of protesters for that.

Of course The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is streaming on Netflix so I may have to watch that new one.

So, what are some movies that are old favorites of yours that you haven’t seen in a while?  Maybe something from your childhood that you just need to put in and see again?  Let me know, I love movies….

Go watch something good and tell me about it.

  1. Wolverines…..

    Anyhow for the best 80’s movie that stood the test of time… Princess Bride Since it was fantasy you get little of the jarring “cellphones the size of cars” and little of the “big hair” just a timeless movie (and 1987 I had to check)

    Haven’t seen the girl with dragon tattoo yet but the books were simply amazing, so I may have to check that out when i get back to the states
