ET, it's okay but it's pretty lazy compared to other Spielberg films like Jaws, Poltergeist, or Saving Private Ryan

"They Live", as much as I like Carpenter films, this is one of his "classics" that doesn't deserve to be remembered, it's bo-oooring. The one good thing out of it is the bubblegum line.

Hey, an older thread revived! I like it.

And it reminds me. "Love Story" was insanely popular when I was in high school, at least among the high schoolers. I finally watched it.

I'll never get that 100 minutes of my life back.
If I heard her say "preppy" one more time, I was going to personally put her out of her misery.

I totally feel you on this! Have you ever seen Peter Bogdanovich's What's Up, Doc? Another not that great film, but the final scene is lovely for those who dislike Love Story. I don't want to post a clip with ads, but if you Google 'What's Up, Doc? ending" the scene I am talking about will come right up.

I know I am an outlier here, but I absolutely hate Breakfast Club (and most other John Hughes films). I have yet to meet others who hate the film. It seems Breakfast Club is universally loved. I've given it three chances (once on my own and twice with different friends). Nope, nope, nope. Cannot come to like that film.
