*Sigh* "Didn't ch. 11 or something show this movie every other month back when there was always something entertaining to watch on T.V like almost everyday? Man T.V sucks now. I can't remember the last time I saw this movie. :("

Damn it, I've been told that a million times, but every time I see The 'Burbs, I never seem to remember that he was Malachai. "Outlander! Outlander!" Definitely a good call man... maybe I'll actually remember it next time I see The 'Burbs and think to myself, "Boy, that Hans is one weird dude."

HOLY CRAP

this site never ceases to amaze me on how you guys' taste in film is so uncannily similar to my own. I've had the 'Burbs on my myspace faves list forever now, and every person i talk to has absolutely no clue what the hell these movies are.

So since once AGAIN you've mirrored my joy, here's some other titles I'd like to see a review on (or I'd gladly do myself):

Screamers
The Miracle Mile
Disorderlies
Phone

...just to name a few. Or I'll gladly accept paypal for anyone who says at least one of these doesn't have a review already in the making

I agree with Sakura....

Do "The Miracle Mile" next.... Pure 80's Joy!

and "Night of the Comet"

love this film. wish they made more films like this, but i guess the era is over.

BurntToShreds Feb 11th, 2008 11:28 PM

Damn, now I need to buy this. The ending was one of my favorites in film history.

I read this and it made me join the site, Watch the DVD and start spying on my neighbors. That has to be one of the best things I have read in a while.

This movie was king!

Tanuki Mar 11th, 2008 07:12 PM

Kinda disturbed...but I must go find this movie now.

One of my all-time favorite movies from the 80's.

Love it when Rumsfield is at the Klopeks house and starts pulling the wallpaper from the wall.

comeon rueben was the best part

Great article.
My favorite lines:

"What you got in the cellar, HAIR Klopek!?!"

"There go the goddamn brownies!"

Did anyone else spot that the Klopeks have Rosebud in their basement?

corey feldman is so cute in this movie!!!

Jauly Jan 26th, 2010 05:25 PM

OMG, nobody here noticed the resemblance to Maniac Mansion?? Hans reminds me somehow of Weird Ed, and as "the doctor" shows up from the cellar, he looks like Dr. Fred Edison :D
Love them both, the Klopeks & The Edisons!

One of my personal favorites.

Notice how this film seems to be a swan song for a lot of the actors:

You've got Tom Hanks just before the start of his Serious Actor phase, Carrie Fisher at the tail end of her hotness, Corey Feldman's last role in a movie more than 12 people saw, Wendy Schaal right before most of the universe forgot she existed, and, though I haven't looked this up, probably Gale Gordon's last film prior to shuffling off this mortal coil.

I love this movie. Anyone else notice the Klopek theme is very similar to the wrestler Kane's old entrance music?
