    That makes sense. The Last Crusade is a classic

    I have a soft spot for Temple, however that is probably because I was the age where I thought Short Round was cool

    I was too. I did like it as a kid. But as I got older, the appeal really wore off. By the time Last Crusade was in cinemas, Raiders was my favorite movie of all time but I didnt care much for Temple one way or the other.

    I was 14 I think when it came out, so all little kids in the movies were annoying to me. I did like Kate Capshaw though

    They were INFINITELY better than Aquaman.

    Mummy III and Indy IV? Same level of bad as Aquaman.

    I didn't say she was good, just had a crush on her for some reason.

    My first mega crush was Olivia Newton John in Xanadu. Had no clue what the film was even about, other than Olivia roller skating like an angel and my 8 year old self having to watch it every time it aired bc of her.

    While not a movie, but just as embarrassing. Carmen Elektra, when she came on the scene as a rapper, with her hit song Go Go Dancer.

    yeah, both Newton in Xanadu and Roberts in Beastmaster were major crushes for me. not as big as linda carter in wonder woman or jaclyn smith in C Angels.

    I loved that movie (and her) when I was a kid.

    Beastmaster and Krull where always on when I was a kid and I watched them both anytime I was able.

    Ice Pirates is such a classic. Somehow, my wife had never seen it, so I bought it on DVD and introduced her to it a few years ago. The Adventure Comedy was absolutely my favorite genre growing up, and I'm so glad that its started to find its way back courtesy of Marvel.

    A lot of it went over my head as a kid in the 80s. But it was still a lot of fun. Now, its a great movie to watch while having a few beers.

    1984. Robert Ulrich, Ron Pearlman, Angelica Houston, and a bunch of other people you probably recognize. Zany and fun, but not pure comedy like Space Balls. More akin to Thor Ragnarok in its tone.

    ^ A movie series, I've never understood the intense fan devotion over.

    The first two movies were the best of the bunch but at most they are OK movies overall.

    when the first one came it, it was great because it was a different kind of story with good special effects and Arnold in his prime. the 2nd one was okay, the rest were pretty dumb. I still occasionally go back to the old Terminator show in Universal studios just for nostalgia.

    I think Terminator 3 is good as a chase movie, though not necessarily as a Terminator movie.

    I really liked the take on Salvation and wish it had got the sequels it was supposed to.

    I also liked the Sarah Conner Chronicles.

    I watched Ready Player One tonight, and I have to say that I'm disappointed. The special effects/CGI are top notch, but the story and characters are very poorly fleshed out and everything is on the surface. It felt like a really big budget made for TV movie, and given that it was directed by Steven Freaking Spielberg, that was a shock. It was also weird that the movie is set decades in the future, but everyone is obsessed with 1980s pop culture. The many, many references were cool for someone like me who was a kid at that point and grew up with it, but it didn't make a lot of sense in the movie's world.

    C+ movie.

    I watched the Aladdin remake over the weekend. Aladdin is my favorite Disney film.

    The movie was fun. If you have low expectations and just want to enjoy yourself, and maybe take your kids to a movie, then Aladdin is just fine.

    The cast did a great job with what they had. The chemistry between all the actors was great.

    Will Smith is not Robin Williams, however, he is still Will Smith. He has charisma coming out the wazoo, and he is having a blast in this role.

    of course, the old cartoon is a better version, I did have a good time.

    I've never enjoyed the cartoon. I saw it once on VHS as a teenager, and then not again until a few years ago when my kids were old enough to watch it. It really hasn't aged well. Over the last six or seven years, I've watched every Disney movie in existence, and a ton of others, and it probably isn't in my top 50.

    We're going to take our kids to see The Secret Life of Pets 2, Toy Story 4 and Angry Birds 2 this summer, but avoid that one. We'll likely eventually catch it on Disney+ later on.

    It is still one of my favorites.

    I saw the trailer for Angry Birds 2. That movie looks painful.

    I haven't seen the trailer yet. I went into the first one with really low expectations, and was really pleasantly surprised. We've probably watched it 50 times, and it's still funny.

    We want to see it, but will probably wait for PPV. We're big Aladdin fans. My kid was asking how Will Smith could possibly fill Robin Williams' shoes. But, my thoughts are it's apples vs oranges. IMO, Robin Williams in cartoon form would have been far better than Robin Williams as the real life genie

    Solo, didn't get enough credit.

    I watched it a second time. Its a really good movie and tons of fun. There's nothing major to seriously dislike about it based on its own merits, I think most overall negative reviews are more based in that fact that people are just bitter and angry nowadays, to be honest.

    I agree totally. People were still bitter about The Last Jedi. Ron Howard has said that he'd like to make another movie in the series, but it seems thats off the table now, sadly. Disney is really pulling back and doesn't want to oversaturate it.

    That's why I'm so upset with Rian Johson over Last Jedi.

    If he had just told the story like it was set up, there's have been less backlash and Disney would be more open to letting new stories in the SW universe be told....which is exactly what he wanted but now hindered.
