Butch, I have a copy of Robocop on VHS along with hundreds others if you're interested......
BC, comedies like Naked Gun, Hot Shots, that shit is slapstick.
Horror flicks like House, Chopping Mall or Jason X is splatstick!
Spark a bowl and chill!!
Same to you Dylan!!
A few fun facts about Chopping Mall in the arguement that they knew damn well what they were doing....
-Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov play the same characters they played in Eating Raoul, a Roger Corman film.
-Dick Miller plays the same character he played in A Bucket of Blood, another Roger Corman production.
-The horror movie that Allison and Ferdy are watching is Attack of the Crab Monster yet another Roger Corman movie.
-The original title was actually Killbots (more acurate), but it performed poorly so was retitled and rereleased.

Butcher, props on your pick, looking forward to hearing what ya'll have to say about Twilight Zone!
BC, you wanted to pick a 80s James Cameron movie you shoulda picked Pirhana 2!!!
Gamblin', no complaints on your pick this week, Red Dawn is good fun!
Another fun show guys! Every episode of "Digging Up The Eighties" just gets better and better. I've never seen Chopping Mall or Blues Brothers but I did see Youngblood which i did enjoy alot. I'm not even a fan of Hockey at all, but I really got into the characters and liked them alot. Patrick Swayze had so much Charisma, that you are glued to the screen every time he appears and in my opinion, he never lost it in his later movies as well. I also was suprised to see Keanu Reeves in there. I thought Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure was his first movie.
BC, I also agree on the scene in the ice rink where the "ice gaurd" is chasing them just doesn't belong. It seems as if they had it because nerds were popular at the time, or they just thought it would be funny. (which it wasn't) The 80's was certainly the decade of the "Nerd". (Revenge Of The Nerds, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science, Pretty In Pink, One Crazy Summer, Lucas etc...)
I've never wanted to to see "The Blues Brothers". I was never interested, but based on the strong recommendation by Gamblin Man, I just might have to check this out one day. The one thing I love about the show is that you guys end up talking about movies I've never seen before and I end up checking them out and experiencing them for the first time.
Next weeks movies: Damn! Good picks!
