    Definitely one of Channel 4's better ideas.

    Risky Business. The scene on the train with Tom Cruise & Rebecca De Mornay ****ging to Phil Collins made quite an impression 🤣

    Probably a combination of Stand By Me, Weird Science, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and the Back to the Future films.

    Even though some were released earlier, there are a few films I remember seeing around the same time.

    The Exorcist, The Omen (x3?), Blues Brothers & Animal House.

    There's a good one on Amazon Prime at the moment - Blinded by the Light. A must for Springsteen fans

    Ferris Bueller and Some Kind of Wonderful.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    I saw the Lost Boys way too young probably about 10, as a result I remember being **** scared that vampires were going to get me for months after, same with the original It, was convinced Pennywise was going to come out the plughole and get me

    Having thought about all that back I'm starting to think my Dad doesn't like me

    I immediately thought Quadrophenia but that would have been when I was 21....memory isn't what it was!

    So I'd say American Graffiti although I didn't see it until a year or 2 after it was released.

    Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman. Even though I was quite a tomboy, it didnít seem to reflect in my film preferences.

    I still vividly remember the first time I seen it, can't say that about many films. Stand by me sticks in my brain as knowing I'd just watched something special, and couldn't believe I'd not seen it previously (I was 15, baked and sat up late during the summer hols) when I watched this for the first time.
