I didnít remember that Howard Hesseman was in that. My era, too. Everyone I grew up with (me, too) was temporarily radicalized by that movie.

This was one of the movies that scared the literal crap outta me in 6th grade...

Yeah, except when Bandaras picked up the language in about 60 seconds.

Victory, the best Sly Stallone movie in IMHO. Although he did a good job in Copland too.

I won't say it's a great movie (although it was way underrated), but I always thought Waterworld never got its due.

It's remembered as a flop because of all the money that was spent making it and the fact that it bombed at the box office, but it was better than folks might remember. Also, it wasn't derivative of anything else, it was completely original.

Now everything just seems to be a rehash of something else that came out not too long before.

A former boss in Germany who is a real soccer nut gave me a copy of his movie when I was over there and ended up buying my own copy. I have never seen it before.

Great movie plus Pele does one of his famous "bicycle kicks" to score.

Speaking of Stallone, how about F.I.S.T.?

Basically Stallone plays a labor leader in the mold of Jimmy Hoffa who over time gets caught up in all of the organized crime aspects that the Teamsters were caught up in.

I think the acronym stood for Federation of Interstate Truckers.

Yeah, it's been awhile, but it was pretty good

I found myself watching the old Bill Murray/Harold Ramis comedy Stripes on Netflix last weekend and had no recollection on how I decided on it. Guess my brain just auto piloted to it to help me relax.

If it wasn't for Stripes it would have been years before I found out what a loofah was.

I love Extreme Prejudice. Back when Nick Nolte was still a decent actor and hadn't gone off the deep end.
Powers Boothe was good in it as well. Plus, you get to see Maria Conchita Alonzo nekkid for a minute.

I don't think Harry Harry has been forgotten, it has gotten lost in the shuffle of Eastwood's later movies, especially those that he directed.
