The last Retro Movie/movies you watched

Post by Randall Flagg » Wed Aug 16, 2006 6:18 am

I watched Superman III the other night. Tip top movie with great performance from Richard Prior.

Shame it was the shortened version. Apparently the only place to watch the extended version is in the states when its shown on TV.

I also watched "The Omega Man" on DVD at my mates a couple of weeks back....Classic 70s sci-fi end of the world trip with good performance from Charlton Heston.

Three Fugitives starring Nick Nolte (1989). I've seen better.

Though not watched it yet, picked up a 3 disk boxset of the Wizard of Oz the other week. Finally gor round to seeing bullitt recently, not too bad, can see it influenced the ending to Heat also.

Beverly Hills Cop over the weekend. I'd forgotten just how good a film it is... Eddie Murphy is superb and the supporting cast are great too. Awesome film.

Also watched The Running Man... awesome. One of the most quotable films circulating in my work at the moment...

Watched all the Back To The Future's over the last three weekends on ITV. Surely, the second best trilogy of films ever made? (After Star Wars)

I watched Tron when it was on a couple of weeks ago, even though I've got it on DVD.

I watched Raging Bull for the first time a month or so ago.
