Reliving the joys of an 80s TV Christmas

Jenny Morrill Dec 20, 2016

Russ Abbot, Bullseye, Noel Edmonds and a film we all watched in the same room. Christmas TV was more exciting in the 80s...

Cast your mind back to when Christmas Day wasn't about Doctor Who followed by sticking something on Netflix until it was time to go watch the annual fist fight outside the pub.

In the 80s, Christmas was about seeing which fantastic fare the TV had decided to bless us with. Of course, the more prepared among us knew this well in advance, having eagerly pored over the Radio Times/TV Times to check that Jimmy Cricket's Family Laugh 'n' Waz would be shown. There it was – right after Reflections On The Eucharist With The Reverend Paul Leyland.

Some of the films included in the list include The Cable Guy, The Truman Show, Minority Report, Back to the Future Part II, Blade Runner, Airplane II: The Sequel, and more.

Wouldn’t it be incredible to know the future? To know what comes next? Sure, it would take all the surprises out of life but think of all the failures and misery you could potentially avoid. Most of us wish we could have made different decisions, but what’s happened has happened. This is where the following list of films come in. You can say these movies were somehow prophetic and accurately predicted some future events including online gaming,

'Poltergeist' Curse Exposed in New Documentary

'Poltergeist' Curse Exposed in New Documentary
Fans of E! and their True Hollywood Story docu-series will be quite familiar with the supposed 'curse' surrounding the Poltergeist franchise. It was a subject that was fully explored on that program quite well. Now, the mystery behind the curse will hopefully be solved in what promises to be a very spooky new documentary titled The Curse of Poltergeist.

The Curse of Poltergeist hopes to unravel the truth behind all the ugly incidents that have followed those associated with the 1982 classic and its sequels. Producer and filmmaker Adam Ripp wants to get to the bottom of this intriguing and scary curse that has plagued the cast and filmmakers behind the Steven Spielberg produced horror movie series for the past three decades. Adam Ripp is directed the movie through his Vega Baby company. Vega Baby is financing the project, and producing along with Indonesian studio MP Pictures. Shooting will start in November.

'Airplane!': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Comedy Classic

Looks like we picked the wrong week to quit celebrating milestones.

Hard to believe it's been 35 years since "Airplane!" took flight (on July 2, 1980) and taught us all to speak jive, order the chicken instead of the fish, and avoid calling each other "Shirley." Three and a half decades later, the airline disaster parody remains one of the funniest films ever made, one that generations of viewers have watched over and over -- though probably never as an in-flight movie.

Still, as many times as you've seen it, there's much you may not know about how it was made. In honor of "Airplane!" turning 35, here are a few facts every fan must know about the comedy classic.

1. Strip away all the jokes, and "Airplane!" is essentially a remake of a little-known 1957 air disaster movie called "Zero Hour!" The writing/directing team of Jim Abrahams, David Zucker, and Jerry Zucker lifted the plot,

What Is Expiring From Netflix on May 1?

Airplane Director's Hilarious Justification For Never Watching Airplane 2

The original Airplane! certainly ranks as one of the greats in the comedy genre. An undeniable classic, it perfectly utilized the then-bourgeoning slew of survival disaster films and threw them into a blender of satire and sharp, dry wit that would set the bar high for generations to come. Its 1982 follow-up, Airplane II: The Sequel, however. not so much. In fact, it was an unmitigated disaster at the box-office. This is something that the original film.s directors, David Zucker, Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams, saw coming, as they not only passed on making the film, but haven't even seen it to this day! Now, in a recent interview, one of the directors has provided a rather blunt, hilarious reason why the latter is still the case. In an interview with Yahoo!, David Zucker, one of the comedic directorial trio behind classics like the original Airplane! as well as the

Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain,

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Much Ado About Nothing,' 'The Purge,' 'The Exorcist'

Roadside Attractions

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week:

"Much Ado About Nothing"

What's It About? Joss Whedon's ("The Avengers") modern retelling of the Shakespeare classic follows two couples with different takes on romance. Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Beatrice (Amy Acker) are older and disdainful of their love, while the sweet young Claudio (Fran Kranz) and Hero (Jillian Morgese) are deeply absorbed by their love.

Why We're In: Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing" is a refreshing and charming take on the classic comedy for its unique blending of the Shakespearian dialogue with a contemporary setting and aesthetic. While it sticks to the original content and doesn't add anything wholly revolutionary, it's nonetheless an entertaining addition to the canon of Shakespeare film adaptations.
