Welcome to April and the Blogging A to Z Challenge! Here's a quick refresher of my theme and the "rules" I set for myself.
- Science Fiction and/or Fantasy movies from the 1980's
- A movie I watched when it came out (meaning when I was a kid)
"There can be only one."
I don't know what I love most about this movie, all the sword fighting or the music by Queen. This movie may or may not have influenced my decision to take fencing in college. :) Another strange note, I never got into the TV series or the sequels to this movie. I guess for me there really could be only one Highlander. Plus, it has Sean Connery!
Harry and the Hendersons (1987) Available on Netflix DVD
Before all the great Jack Links commercials about Sasquatch, there was Harry. This one is full of slapstick humor, fear turning to love and then racing to save Harry from those who don't understand. Pretty typical stuff, but fun as a kid.
And for fun...
Bonus from FADE INTO ME
Heather is Ryanne's older sister. She's already in college and has been doing the best she can to keep their family afloat. When her parents left, she fought to keep Ryanne with her and not in foster care. She's very protective of Ry. One of my favorite scenes from the book is when Caedan points out that not all love is about fairy tales. True love is a sister who would do anything to help you be happy.
