After seeing him win an Oscar for documentary last night, it reminded me of Fisher Stevens portrayal of Indian "Ben Jabituya" in 1986's Short Circuit. This should've at least been nominated for the racist character award with a white guy attempting a stereotypical portrayal of an Indian character. Sent out a reminder on Twitter.

Major League was hysterical. You have to tell us which one you are at the end of the movie, so we can look for you!

I didn't know you were a movie star. Don't keep these tidbits secret so long.
Cameo or not, you were in a great movie.

Great list as usual, real genius was one of my favorite movies, and I don't think anyone could beat Glenn Close in fatal attraction.

This is my first comment on this blog. I enjoyed hearing about the categories of different films. I totally agree with the comment of making remakes of 1980's films, I don't film makers today could do any better than the original film.
I need to watch a few of these films again soon, God knows it has been too long since I have seen any of them. But in a way, I have trouble watching them, and the reason is...sometimes when I see something from the 80's it starts a yearning in my soul to physically be back in that time, which can never happen.
I'm so grateful to have been an 80's teen, I really get frustrated with what I see everyday in 2010 LOL, hope that made sense?

Reply to: above comment. I'm very Dyslexic and it shows in my previous posting. Wish there was an "edit feature" LOL.

A great post, as usual!
Many of these films are still favorites of mine... Bull Durham, Msjor League, Field of Dreams, Dirty Dancing - I almost always watch these when they are on the telly - too bad I don't have them on disc. Oh well!
See you next time!

I agree -- no more remakes!
I heard there is going to be are remake of "The Rockford Files" with Dermot Mulroney as Jim Rockford. And there will be a "Max Steele" (like Action Man, or GIJoe) movie with Taylor Lautner as the leading man.
