Blast from the Past

You'll never guess what The Man Beast was watching Sunday morning - a Power Rangers movie!

Do y'all remember Power Rangers? I don't because I never watched them. But I find it very funny that my husband, a grown man, watched a show from my high school days (1995), and the kiddos weren't even in the room!

I will tell you a few movies I do like - the cheesier the better:

  • Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt were fabulously fun in this movie. (And the boys at Maxim have it wrong - SJP does not look like a horse. I happen to believe she's beautiful because she is unique.)
  • Goonies
Sean Astin in braces. Can it get any cuter? Yes. Corey Feldman before his Surreal Life episode. Anyone in the mood for a Baby Ruth?
  • License to Drive
Do I secretly have a crush on the Cories? I don' think so...but this one sure was fun! (And I remember the dad being the same guy from Disney's Mr. Boogety. Do you remember that movie? It was waaay before Halloweentown or Twitches).
  • Breakfast Club
No 80s movie list is complete without the Brat Pack. So classic. (And I do have a thing for Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall - so you might as well include ALL of Molly's movies in my list).
  • Adventures in Babysitting
Elisabeth Shue was the greatest, wasn't she? I love it. And I love the opening sequence: He walked up to me and asked me if I wanted to dance. He looked mighty fine and so I thought I might take the chance... *sigh* What preteen didn't think that her dress was the coolest. Her hair was the coolest. Okay, maybe it was just me. I'm a slight dork. Now you finally know - I can come out of the closet.

Those are handful of my favorites. What were some of yours? (Careful now, you might just date yourself.Challenge Me!)


Until next time...

  1. Yeah, umm I am older than you..so, I will say this..I loved Bewitched, The Monkees, Emergency, I could go on and on. By the way, one of the orginal Power Rangers was just found guilty of murder.

    PS. I love the Breakfast Club and Weird Science.

  3. I loved the movie Say Anything. Watched it over and over, dreamed someone would come and hold a radio outside my window.... ok thats enough of that lol

    actually I have to give this some thought, I was on classmates the other night and was looking at the places I went to school, and it brought back some big memories, people who I haven't thought about in ages...

    ah good memories....

  4. I was just barely too old to watch Power Rangers as a kid (I think I was in 4th grade when the first came out), but I've seen bits here and there babysitting and it's CHEESY! I can't stand any of the kid violent stuff: Power Rangers, Pokemon, etc. They drive me nuts.

    That said, I do enjoy an episode of Hannah Montana or many of the other Disney channel shows when I get the chance. =)

  5. Oh, and Adventures in Babysitting is one of my best friend's favorites, so I watched it with her one time. I didn't get what all the fuss was about (she had been talking it up for weeks). I suppose it wasn't really meant for watching for the first time as an adult.

  6. I'm sure if I watched some of those movies now, they'd be uber cheesy. But at the time, they served their purpose. :)
