Just to complete the collection (after songs, TV shows and publications), started a thread for favourite old movies.

To get the ball rolling, this is one of the first movies I remember having seen near the time of its release in 1977 (or at most a couple of years after it):

Capricorn_one.jpg

Quite mature themes - and at the time, I didn't understand the subtext of the Moon landing hoax conspiracy theories, the black helo references, etc. In fact, I don't think I understood too much of anything - I must've been about 5 at most, but I remember there was a snake-eating scene that burned itself into my memory. :D

Saw this one in the cinemas. Absolutely ripping heart-ripping scene. Even at 9, didn't bother me in the least. Explains a lot about how I am now, I think. [laugh]

Indiana_Jones_and_the_Temple_of_Doom_PosterB.jpg

The infamous scene (which pretty much led to the creation of the PG-13 rating in the US).



I would've put a warning of NSFW or not suitable for younger viewers, but *I* watched it when I was young, so why bother? :D

Well, the first two movies rank high on my list. The last one is the only one I saw in the cinema, but it ranks really low. :D

LOVE this one! I also watched the 3rd one (Jaws 3D) in the cinema. Hopeless plot, but the (polarised glasses, not red-green anaglyph) 3-D gimmick was brand new. :D

Remember the opening scene during or after the credits when the shark bites the head off a smaller fish, and the fish head comes "floating" out of the screen towards you?

I do! [laugh]
