Movies the year you were 12 meme


I'm so terrible about updating lately (Twitter is my true social networking home these days) but here is a fun meme stolen from bistyboo1974 and babettew54:

Go to Wikipedia (as the most convenient resource), and copy the list of movies that were released in the year when you were 12 years old. Mark in italics the movies that you've seen. (Not necessarily that year.) Mark in bold the movies that you own on video, DVD, Blu-Ray or whatever.

[I am also adding D! for "I SHOULD own this on DVD", and N! for "Why haven't I watched this? Adding to Netflix queue NOW." Several I had on VHS or Videodisc as a teen, though.]

I am only here to say..

Aug. 22nd, 2010 11:56 pm (UTC)
I wonder how many of these Moss has seen? :)
Aug. 22nd, 2010 11:59 pm (UTC)
You haven't seen The Beastmaster or Conan the Barbarian or The Return of Martin Guerre? You poor deprived thing, you!
Aug. 23rd, 2010 12:04 am (UTC)
I've never really been interested in the Conan character - that's my excuse. But I'll add Martin Guerre to my queue, just for you! :)

Gerard Depardieu is a great character actor and this might be his greatest role (though I also loved him in Cyrano, so it's a hard choice). I don't think it's dubbed, but subtitled, so only watch it if you can afford the chance to focus on the text as well as the action.
Aug. 23rd, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
I'm just fine with subtitles! Netflix doesn't have it just yet, though. Hopefully when they get it, I'll be able to see it.

Just poking in to say, if you've seen Sommersby with Richard Gere, it's a sorta kinda remarke of that....so you might already be familiar with the story. That said, the original version is SO MUCH better. (and I'm not just saying that because I'm a huuuuuuuuuuuuge fan of Depardieu)
Aug. 23rd, 2010 04:32 pm (UTC)
I haven't seen Sommersby either, so I'm good! :)

I can't remember if I watched 48 Hrs. or not so I left it off. And NO I HAVEN'T. I realize this must be remedied! Not a horror fan, though, so I won't be adding Creepshow, but I will try out Sophie's Choice! :)

Some awesome 'B' movies on this list:

Beastmaster (yep, you must!)

Cat People (True Blood just tonight showed a black leopard/human girl ... Jason's blonde girlfriend). I wondered what she was ..loved it!

First Blood (how could you have all the Rocky pics and not have seen this?)!

Aug. 23rd, 2010 04:30 pm (UTC)
It's a good thing I'd seen the True Blood tonight, or I'd citizen's arrest you for the spoiler police! ;D

My dad loved the Rocky films, but had no use for the Rambo ones. *shrugs*
Aug. 24th, 2010 12:43 am (UTC)
Sorrrreeee!! *facepalm* I'm been in jail the past few hours in handcuffs because of my slip! Glad you weren't spoiled! *hugs*

Actually, IMO, First Blood was the best of the bunch, backstory, etc. I do recommend it! :D
Aug. 23rd, 2010 02:26 am (UTC)
I should do this... I have the same year as you do and I'm amazed at how many of these I've seen and you haven't -- especially being that I don't seem to watch anything at all, and you're all crazy nutty watching everything... then again, I think that's mostly TV. LOL
Aug. 23rd, 2010 04:31 pm (UTC)
You're totally right! I'm much more of a TV watcher than a movie watcher. Always have been. I'll look forward to your list -- do you recommend ones I didn't mark?
Aug. 23rd, 2010 03:10 am (UTC)
Good lord, Victor/Victoria is WONDERFUL. I love it so so much.

And I need to do this meme, it looks so so fun.
Aug. 23rd, 2010 04:32 pm (UTC)
You should! And I really don't know how I've never seen V/V. I plan to do it ASAP.
Aug. 23rd, 2010 04:43 pm (UTC)
I would continue posting James Marsen in Enchanted icons, but I've only got the one.

But yeah, V/V is a really fun movie.
Dec. 19th, 2010 05:53 pm (UTC)
Dark Crystal FTW

Dec. 19th, 2010 08:31 pm (UTC)
Do you have other IT Crowd icons?
Dec. 20th, 2010 12:20 am (UTC)
I haven't made any, no - I got mine from theitcrowd. :)
Dec. 20th, 2010 04:47 am (UTC)
Joined it. Thanks! Didn't know it existed!
