Top ten things mid-Atlantic moms don't want you to know about movies that came out about the same topics within a year or two of each other or even the same year and had movie audiences battling each other for meaningless tribalism preferences of WHICH IS BETTER or MORE COOL, like Coca-Cola vs Pepsi, Nintendo vs Sega, etc.

In the polls above please find some movies to vote for. Due to the limitations of the IP.Board software, I can only have three "questions"/categories, if you will, then 20 choices per question. Please try to vote for one or the other, or you can break the rules and I can't stop you but I can see who voted for what and send you nasty holiday cards and spare K-Mart plastic shopping bags full of festering hamburger meat.

I tried to keep it to "actual 80s and beyond movies people have probably seen and heard of" and not straight to tape/TV movie stuff (i.e., no Twister vs Tornado).

Good luck and have fun. This thread was inspired by me remembering the scene in Volcano where the train conductor leaps off the train into lava and throws a girl to safety and then melts alive while everyone gasps in the subway and the scene in Dante's Peak where a cool dude and dudette couple get boiled alive trying to relax in some hot springs and not being able to remember which was which or anything actually different or unique between either of them. Then I thought about Armageddon and Deep Impact, and liking the end to Deep Impact, but also, getting the piano score/sheets for Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" #1 hit single from Armageddon and taking it to my piano teacher and demanding she teach me it and seeing the utter disappointment in her eyes.

oh god

 

These two very scenes had a severe impact on my childhood and have been burned into my memory ever since.

 

Volcano

 

i remember the volcano conductor guy, i remember him praying in the fire train, i remember the guy he was saving (the train conductor).  Upon a future viewing, i believe the train conductor guy was reading a 'how to write movie scripts 101' book or something and theorized that after the Volcano events he would go on to write Dante's Peak.  I remember the heart sinking feeling that only one of them was going to make it out alive.  I remember the Volcano conductor self sacrificing himself throwing the train conductor guy to safety, maybe he knew he would write Dante's Peak.  I remember the screams, I remember him being enveloped in fire, i remember when the screams stopped, his face still as the rest of him went under, but there was nothing underneath, his body was gone, melted, erased.  As a kid i still thought it was water, but knew that it wasn't, it was hot lava, i then pondered and realized that when he stopped screaming he was indeed dead, but then i thought how much of your body has to be there to be considered dead or alive, i began to put myself in his shoes, his hot melting shoes and began to think what it would feel like to be slowly devoured into some hot lava underneath some city where Tommy Lee Jones was.

 

Dante's Peak

 

This scene as well.  The kids, they got their lives ahead of them, I'm also a kid but a lot younger when i watched this.  They're just being kids having fun.  They're also naked, you know.  Started thinking Adam and Eve shit, pure and innocent.  Then fuckin Dante's Peak shows up and heats up the warm springs and boils them alive.  The movie was done in a very crafty way of not showing them actually being boiled alive, but just the start of it.  It's like those old horror movies where it didn't show the murders, but let the viewer create the murder in their head, to which i believe is one of the most clever and horrifying movie cues ever.  Stuart Dunmeyer from Mrs. Doubtfire shows up with Sara Connor and her kids.  The girl kid is all eww gross but the boy kid is all 'woo hot springs'.  boy kid's running for his life to get relaxed in hot spring, but then James Bond/Robinson Crusoe snatches the kid before he goes in because he has volcano sensing powers.  The littler girl screams as she sees two bodies bobbing like apples, asses up, you can't tell which one is which, there innocence cooked away from the Peak.  The image lasted all but 2 to 3 seconds, but the damage was done as a young kid.  I remember watching the rest of the movie, other bad stuff happened that i won't get into today, but i kept going back to that scene at the warm springs.  I kept thinking of the lives those to young folks were going to have, i kept thinking of how and when the parents found out about there kids, i kept thinking about how the funeral would go, i kept thinking about the actual boiling, i kept thinking about them trying to escape but it was too late, i kept thinking who died first and who was just alive long enough to see the other die, i kept thinking about this scene.

 

Update

 

These two movies had quite an effect, upon seeing them again (especially Dante's Peak) i'll be honest i was scared.  This was only a few months ago, I saw the scene and it wasn't so bad, i even laughed, but I'm older and i can put things in perspective, those kids were side characters and have no life outside of this, they are actors, i don't know, still scared me to a degree.  Volcano side blinded me (i watched both Dante's Peak and Volcano back to back by the way) I had forgotten about the the Volcano conductor, this one hurt a little bit more because when i first saw Volcano i started watching it half way through.  This time i got to get to know Volcano conductor man a little more, he was kinda boring and looked annoyed most of the movie but when the going got tough he got toughened up, i saw who this guy was really made of, and came at a shock that this would be the guy that died, i was saddened at it a bit more, the melting scene was a lot faster this time around and he sank faster, but i got through it just like Dante's Peak.

 

Weird, remembering back i remember less detail but it stuck with me just as strong.  Watching both recently i realize there was a lot more detail.  Steam rising at the hot spring, the floating bodies had a gray feature, there may have been some veins popping out, good job from the art department.  The burning in Volcano, there was a few more lava effects, i remember seeing his face a lot clearer back in the day, but this time lava and fire disrupted the view.  I'm not sure what to make of this.  One day I will write a whole review on both of these movies, and perhaps some others on the list.  but yeah, Volcano and Dante's Peak...they made an impact that's for sure, a deep impact.

Only voted for ones "kids would remember" and it wasn't fuckin many of them.  Made me feel bad to read all the titles, reminding me of just how many shitty movies get churned out with a wide theatrical release.

I may have to rewatch Gordy, I might be getting the kissing mixed up...or...does Gordy fall in love with a human, and get married? That may be the original interspecies glass shattering.

Voted for all I have comparative knowledge of. Jaws 3D vs Friday the 13th 3D was hard. I'm loyal to both but voted F13 for being an improvement while J3 wasn't.
