    Which films do you have on VHS or DVD that you still enjoy no matter how old it gets?

    80's movies?

    Blade Runner, Manhunter, Brother From Another Planet, Brazil, Time Bandits, The Milagro Beanfield War, Dragonslayer, The Blues Brothers...

    I do regret that some are on VHS though and I need to get on Amazon.con and replace them with DVDs.

    Christmas Story, yeah! Also have watched Breakfast Club more times than I probably should admit to and also (yikes) Purple Rain too many times.

    Me neither....though i always wanted to. I'll probably catch it on TBS on Christmas Eve or Day (which ever day they play it)

    and for 80's movies, i have and love the Breakfast Club and The Color Purple. One movie that i cherish but don't own (yet) is:

    Mannequin.

    yes, it's a laughably bad movie, but God knows i love it. Plus, the ending song "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" is icing on the cake. :biggrin1:
