Tent Pole - 4 Quadrant - typical Industry lingo & myopic compartmentalization of creativity,
Can we just say Summer Popcorn flick?

Geeljire said...

I can't wait for "Your Turn - Favorite 'Urban' Movie"

Brayson87 said...

Independence Day, great for its time.

sandybrook said...

Jaws because it scared the shit out of me.

Dena said...

Pee Wee’s Big Adventure

Tuesdi said...

A lot of fun movies here. I feel a binge watch coming on.

just sayin' said...

Men In Black.

MSAB09 said...

Labyrinth :D

Basil said...

I agree with Jaws. Set in the summer, released in summer, huge blockbuster that started the summer movie trend we still see today. Not to mention a well crafted movie.

totaji said...

Seeing Jurassic Park when it came out was pretty amazing. Star Wars and Jaws were better overall movies.

Jaws set the standard...

Jennifer said...

I love Jaws, also Pee Wee's Big Adventure and Labyrinth are also great movies!

The Flamingo Kid was good too, one of my favorites because Matt Dillon, and also, it came out in the winter (though it was a summer movie)when I was in junior high, and my bff and I saw it on a snow day. Good memories!

Cody Lane in The Blue Room or Joanna Angel in The Lemon Thief.

Independence Day. A great overall flick, and the initial attack scenes were amazing. I love seeing shit blow up!

Armageddon fun as hell, corny as shit and lots of damage.
Independence Day a very close 2nd

As long as plenty of people die in a hail of bullets and somebody's car goes off a cliff, I'm happy. The hero getting a bit of hardcore humpy also, just so that I can unbutton my cardigan and fan myself a bit.

Either The Empire Strikes Back or Men In Black.

Back To The Future

DDonna Tarttty said...

"Empire Strikes Back" or "Die Hard." Both movies left me exhilarated when I walked out of the theater.

Humor Me said...

Jaws - never gets old.

Bitchysoisse said...

Meatballs-the epitome of summer flicks.

Hamid said...

True Lies. 140 minutes of Arnold killing muslim terrorists. Old school practical effects. Shot on 35mm film.

Now it's mostly superhero movies with horrible CGI and shot digitally.

Hamid said...

Agree. The sequel was shit. People loved the practical effects in ID4. So what does Emmerich do in the sequel? Opts for lifeless CGI.

RowdyRodimus said...

Batman with Keaton and Nicholson (I was 13, perfect age for that entire summer of Batman)

deadzo said...

I don't watch movies or TV anymore knowing about all the filth involved with it. That crap will rot your brains.

HeatherBee said...

I think the 80’s was a great time to be a kid, with Ghostbusters, E.T., Raiders of The Lost Ark, Back to the Future, etc.

MattDaddy said...

Close Encounters.

mud said...

The Return of the Pink Panther in '75.

GentleBreeze said...

Jaws.

mercyprosperity said...

"The Love Bug" starring Dean Jones and Michele Lee

I’m going to Ben. Teh party pooper who says I like Halloween season films better because I’m a meanie. 🍂

Bye. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Do Tell said...

Grease. It is, after all, the word.

Lu Geiger said...

Underworld or pride and prejudice, can watch a thousand times and still enjoy it as if it was the 1st

shakey said...

I'll say The Day After Tomorrow. The tv gods conspired to put that on AMC on my birthday. Just for me.

That's a movie I'll watch as often as my husband watches the Men in Black movies. And it's refreshing on a hot summer night.

shakey said...

Scandi, you mean Ben - the sequel to Willard?
