There should be 9 pictures up there - are they all showing up for you?
Yeah I was referring specifically to the first pic...Jealous. I love my 1080P BenQ. But I'm going to wait for the eventual BenQ 4k budget model. Probably at least 2yrs away...
First pic should be of Gordy climbing up to the treehouse - is that the one you're referring to? I'm a bit paranoid because I've had images not show up for people correctly in the past. Re: nostalgia - you have to also realize that Stand By Me was a movie shot in the 80's and set in the late 50's. So it sort of has that double-nostalgia thing going on. There's no way a new movie made in 2017 is gonna be able to replicate that very well. Plus, some movies just grow in stature over time. When Stand By Me came out, I remember there was a lot of carping about how it was Stephen King but it wan't horror and King should just "stay in his lane". The years have been kind to this one (not that it doesn't deserve it).
How about now, pic of Gordy showing up?Re: things we love from when we are younger - its interesting to go back and re-watch those things. Some of them hold up really well. Others, not so much. For me, things like the Princess Bride (also by Reiner), The Breakfast Club, Star Wars IV, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Shining, Blade Runner, etc... all are still freaking fantastic. However, others that I loved back then, not so much staying power. Things like 16 Candles, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Gremlins, Beetlejuice, etc.... all have not aged well.On the other hand, I've recently been discovering some of the great movies that came out before I was born and have been loving a ton of them.
Ok, I see Gordy now. Any chance you can shrink some of them? They are large and when viewing on a PC at least, it forces the text to be smaller, don't know if that's an issue for anyone else.Lol. Hey now, we're still big fans of some of the latter. My gf still watches 16 Candles, Gremlins, and Ferris regularly and we just watched Beetlejuice a couple days ago. I thought Beetlejuice held up pretty well, but then maybe you were older when you saw it. For me it was the first time seeing it as a proper grown-up, and the Blu Ray quality is impressive, so I had a better appreciation for just how weird a movie it is and must have been at the time even though it's a bit clunky. Speaking of questionable 80s on Blu-Ray one of my favorites was Tough Guys, with Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster. I'd like to see that one again.
