This got me thinking. Do I have a movie year? Really, could one have a movie year? Quickly I googled my all time favorite, The Princess Bride and found it was released in 1987. After a quick trip down memory lane in which I recalled how much Dirty Dancing affected me on first view, it too turned out to be 1987. The only movie I googled that was NOT 1987 was Stand By Me and that was ’86.
Hmm… maybe I DO have a movie year…. IMDB to the rescue, and a quick and dirty listing of all movies released in 1987 by release date. Notable movies include:
- Adventures in Babysitting
- Full Metal Jacket
- La Bamba
- Lost Boys
- Brave Little Toaster
- and last (but not least) Flowers in the Attic
I have seen all but the last one, and many others from 1987, most of them in the theatre, which I guess officially makes 1987 my movie year. Which makes sense, at 15 I had a job and worked at a mall with a movie theatre and got a mall discount on tickets (like my friends let me in free discount :-). Hindsight is a terrible thing though, I remember my kickin’ cool teenage wardrobe with the skinny jeans with the zippers at the ankles and what not. I also totally did that wall o’ hair thing with my bangs……
What’s your movie year??
