We got scammed too
When I was in Beeston, UK getting groceries I got stopped by a nice polite canvasser. She gave me the video and all the paperwork. I took it home and watched it, all the way to the end. When the caller phoned me the next day, I lied to him and told him someone else watched it before I had the chance to. He sent me another one through the post. If you take the magnet out, rewind the tape, record over the tape til the end, you'll find the tape counter is around and hour and a quarter long. Now I have two brand new blank videos thank you very much!! Trouble is, they keep phoning me, and I'm ignoring the phone. Ringing me every half hour from 8am - 8pm.
Side by Side (1988)
surprised how much I liked it
I purchased this on DVD a few years ago, with the film _How to Kill Your Neighbor's Dog (2000)_ (qv) was on the other side of the DVD. One of the things I liked about "Side by Side" was that it was funny, with the old fogeys poking fun at themselves and each other, and the main bit that really surprised me was the believability that two of the characters, Abe Mercer (Milton Berle) and Frances Mercer (Edith Fields) made you honestly believe that they could be married in real-life as well as being on-screen spouses. I particularly liked it when they tried to speak Russian (very badly!) to fool a news guy into thinking they were really Russian.
The Red Hand Gang (1977)
One of my absolute favourites
This series was what I was brought up on. I watched every episode. It was on in the mornings in the UK. Made me want to have a Chopper bike just like one of the kids in the show. I thought the little kid on his skateboard was ultra-cute. I remember the kidnapping episode, one with baseball cards, one where they were trapped in a basement with one of those dumb-waiter things, lots of chopper biking, that one at a marina, and I think there was one with a horse or stables. All in all, good clean child-friendly fun. Great for a 6 year old like I was. Wouldn't mind seeing it again. Can anyone let me know of any place that I can get hold of a copy to watch?
Stig of the Dump (1981)
Great mini series
Loved this when it first came out. We had the book read out to us at Primary school, loved that also. Made me want to go live in a cave, and have the sort of adventures the two characters had.
Loved the movie
First saw this film back in the early 80's, not long after it came out. I loved it immensely.
Because I became familiar with the film, I found it very difficult to get into the book. On the other hand, there have been a few books I have read where I found it difficult to enjoy the film, one of which was The Leather Boys with Dudley Sutton.
Anyway, I did really enjoy the movie Christine, and found I could relate to Arnie's geeky character and the way he was picked on and stuff because I have been there!
One reviewer mentioned that the soundtrack is still available. It is, I have one copy of it, but I was really peeved that not all the songs made it onto the album. I'm going to have to track down some of the others used in the film myself.
Buffalo '66 (1998)
Liked this movie a lot
possible spoiler ahead
I first saw this movie a couple of years ago on a pay-per-view television channel. Although I loved the film, I found it very painful to watch, and I am still not sure why. It must have been the emotional content, or maybe the way that Christina Ricci's character kept getting snubbed by Vincent Gallo's character, at first, and I could feel her pain of being rejected. It cut like a knife.
The bit where he went berserk with a gun was really surreal, as it was meant to be.
10 out of ten.
