Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The view of the "city lights" is a model which includes a suburb that looks suspiciously like a circuit diagram, complete with logic gates and an integrated circuit. The sound effects from the movie at the drive-in were taken directly from Yars' Revenge, an Atari video game. When the helicopter pilot looks the newspaper, one of the headlines says "Kingston Falls 'Riot' Still Unexplained". Kingston Falls was the town where the events in Gremlins (also directed by Joe Dante), took place. "

Phillydude's Movie Log - January, 2012 (36 movies items)

" Watched - January 27th - HDNet Movies - Rewatch "Look, I know I must look weird to you, but how do you think you look to me? Listen, I watched four episodes of Lassie before I figured out why the little hairy kid never spoke - I mean he rolled over, sure, he did that fine - but I don't think he deserved a series for that." - Wak The movie I affectionately refer to as the poor man's E.T. - It is about three boys who build there own spaceship - I didn't like Explorers at all the first time I "

Favourite Movies from My Youth (25 movies items)

"Another youth based adventure film. I couldn't and still can't get enough of these types of movies. I always loved the idea of these kids building a spaceship, and flying around in it. I wished that was me. I have to admit though that I have never been satisfied with how this movie ends. I now know it ends the way it does because it's really an incomplete movie. I wish that the studio had let Dante finish this film the way he wanted."
