Happy Anniversary! :party:

Yeah, and this week in 1982, Blade Runner got buried by E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.

I remember the commercials for Blade Runner when it came out. You know how many movies flopped because of E.T. sucking up all the box office air? Blade Runner, John Carpenter's The Thing, TRON, Firefox, etc. The only films that did well were Rocky III, Poltergeist, and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, because they came out in the two weeks before E.T.

ET was overrated. Basically just a sentimental kids' movie. Blade Runner was much better.

I agree. But you know how it is.

Ironically, E.T. started off as an alien horror movie script called Night Skies, about a family in a farmhouse being terrorized by aliens. Columbia Pictures turned it down, thinking they were gonna get a sequel to Close Encounters of the Third Kind, and Spielberg ended up reworking the script into two different movies, Poltergeist and E.T.

Never saw Poltergeist.

it was good at the time. It still has an edge, but we're way past those scares now.

Wow, you never did? It's an 80s classic. :)

Well, some things are dated, Rita, but it's still an effective ghost story. :) I've seen reaction videos on YouTube and it still scares many people.

I didn't see many films in the '80s. We didn't have the money to go to the cinema often.

PhoenixRising 06-27-2022 06:32 PM

I'm sorry to hear that. :( Movies in the 80s just seemed magical to me, though.
