Amazon’s list of The Best Christmas Movies of the 80′s is pretty much the best
posted on Dec 11 2011

Here’s the list. To say it leaves out a few is an understatement... but it’s a start nonetheless.

The trailer to one of my favorite is below.






I had completely forgotten about the movie ‘The Christmas Toy’

As a kid we all watched horrible Christmas movies. But we were kids, so we were oblivious to their horribleness. Also, it was Christmastime and they were about Christmas presents, so we definitely didn’t care.

One of my favorite movies was The Christmas Toy. One day Dad came home, needed to record something on the VHS (“something” usually involved Remington Steele or Cheers), recorded over my program, and that was that.

Whilst browsing the Netflix the other night, there it was.

Happy Halloween from Marty McFly & Jennifer Parker

Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need… roads.

Back To The Future is one of, if not my favorite movie of all time. I love the first, LOVE the second, like the third (trains? we needed trains to make this more compelling?).

We were invited to an 80s themed Halloween party, and the choice was obvious: be everyone’s favorite childhood time traveler. However, I should note that we were worried that things might get heavy if no one recognized us.

You can’t tell, but I’m wearing a maroon undershirt and my white collared shirt is checkered in blue… just like Marty’s. (I worked hard and want credit, y’all… which is sad.)

Inspired by these…

Halloween from years past is below.
