    Great post, thanks!
    You've helped me fill in a few blanks there.
    I was pretty sure it was Police Academy 2 where Bobcat is the bad guy, then 3 he joins the academy, which was a great idea, such a crazy character and he's bizarrely likeable!

    Mediocre: Iron Eagle; Little Shop of Horrors; 9 1/2 Weeks; Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home; Top Gun; Cobra; Manhunter; Raw Deal; The Karate Kid Part II; Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives and Howard the Duck are all worth seeing, but weren't worth a tick in the poll, for me.

    I've wanted to watch Bad Moon Rising for a while - isn't it a Carpenter story featuring a futuristic car starring Tommy Lee Jones and Sarah Connor (without Googling!)?

    I want to show my son the Star Wars films, but I'm painfully aware that he's going to get more enjoyment from Phantom Menace's jumped up toy commercial, rather than the plodding of A New Hope.
    Likewise, films I loved as a kid don't always engage modern young audiences as much, used to minions farting, but also I think our memories cloud how good some of these films are.

    You can't blame him. Any kid would go wild for council scenes debating the gripping trade taxation plotlines.

    Without googling I want to say yes but I think all my knowledge of it comes from a reference from watching a Carpenter retrospective relating to the Halloween films. I don't think I'd heard of it before then.

    I've got a raft of films I want the kids to see but, and then may well catch them before I can show them, I've held stuff back because it'd be a shame for them not to see them at an age where they carry some of that first time viewing impact. I think we've lost that already with Ghostbusters but I'm keeping Indy etc secret from them

    Aaaargghhh! How do I choose between Transformers: The Movie and Highlander? Both have amazing soundtracks and nonsensical plots but are great entertainment. I still enjoy watching them both to this day.
    Think I'll pick Highlander as the theme of a basically immortal guy who loses everyone he's ever loved is more up my street.
    Still have to wonder if Arcee is the only female Autobot and why she is a she?

    I don't know why but that's one JC film I just can't get on with. It has all the right ingredients but just doesn't seem to work.

    So many brilliant classics.

    I have to choose... Aliens. I've gone back to it time and time again, but it's always a joy to watch. The perfect sci-fi action movie.

    The Hitcher is close behind, as it's also an excellent movie in all areas. Rutger Hauer is brilliant as a menacing psycho.

    Little Shop of Horrors is a great musical with a perfect cast. I love everything about it.

    Labyrinth was one of my favourite childhood films. I loved the imagination and creepy vibe. I really need to go back to it.

    Poltergeist 2, despite being a big dodgy, is still pretty scary. The old man bad guy is genuinely creepy.

    Cobra is a fun action flick that I like to go back to now and then. It's far from a great movie, but I enjoy what it delivers. Sly does a good job.
