    It's 1987 what are you going to go see?



    Ok so, it's 1987 Friday Night you get to select 1 feature. Tickets are $3.50 $2.25 for the matinee before 6pm which one would you choose?

    Personally I am taking The Predator.

    Full Metal Jacket, because I heard it's good.

  3. #3
    Man, that was a hell of a lineup. Predator probably would be what I would want to see on the big screen.. (again)..

    I'd drive on by, nothing worthwhile in that list.

    I'd be looking for a cinema with Spaceballs showing

    Given my age at the time none of those are Sesame Street and I would of given no fucks

    Platoon and Lethal Weapon also came out. LW came out this very week.

    well, seeing as the Predator is the only one of those on ur list I have seen in the cinema in recent years, I'd go with that one, I wasn't allowed to go to the cinema in the 80's...was forced to rely on tv n vhs tapes..
    The predator, is filmed very well, it still holds up, it looks like its a new movie, cinematography is amazing.

    the other movies, they are alright i guess.

    but seeing as I said I wasn't allowed at my age to go to the cinemas n those aren't kid friendly, I would have to honestly say I wouldn't have been allowed to see any of them..(but showing me a gazillion of kung fu movies where they beat the shit out of each other was perfectly fine!)

    If was old enough to buy my own movie tickets I would have snuck into predator at least a dozen times.

    Full Metal Jacket, matinee. Sneak into Robocop.

    Come back at 7 for Predator, get dinner and return for the midnight showing of The Lost Boys.


    I probably did a combination of all this for these films at the actual time. I was 12 years old in 1987 and I used to go to the movies multiple times a day often with my dad and sister.

    Eh. All meh movies. Why are these the only choices?

    No Lethal Weapon? No Good Morning Vietnam? Hoosiers? The Golden Child?

    I've seen all of them. Full Metal Jacket is the best, but it is sort of a very messed up movie and not for everyone.

  14. #14
    Lost Boys if it is 87. Full Metal Jacket now.

    I'd love to see the skit for that. It would open with Near and Far comparisons, followed by fucks and no fucks.

    If they would have let me into the cinema to watch it when I was 8 it would have been Robocop, but I had to wait for it to release on VHS.

    Malone, obviously. I mean, I've already seen Predator. And the plotline is surprisingly relevant.

    Seen them all, but if I was back as myself in 1987 without any knowledge, I'd pick Predator. (Though today I value Robocop and especially Full metal Jacket higher)

    Predator.

    And cut the intro where it shows the alien crash landing. Keep it a secret like the original marketing.

    Mind blown.
