Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes”

Over the weekend we watched Say Anything, one of my favorite 80s movies featuring John Cusack, Ione Skye, and Lili Taylor.

In the movie, Lloyd stands outside Diane’s house holding a large boombox which plays this song. This comes just after their breakup.

“The rain on my car is a baptism, the new me, Ice Man, Power Lloyd, my assault on the world begins now” –Lloyd Dobler

The Princess Bride is a classic fairy tale adventure which shares a story within a story. It begins with a sick grandson (Fred Savage) and his grandfather (Peter Falk) who reads him the story The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

As the story is told, we’re introduced to Wesley (Cary Elwes), a young farm boy, and Buttercup (Robin Wright), his one true love. There isn’t anything Wesley wouldn’t do for Buttercup.

Buttercup: “Farm boy, polish my horse’s saddle. I want to see my face shining in it by morning.”

Westley: “As you wish.”

Buttercup: “Farm boy, fill these with water – please.”

Westley: “As you wish.”

Labyrinth quickly became a favorite movie as a child. For me it was easy; I fell in love with this magical story even with all its creepiness. Labyrinth seems to be one of those movies you either love or you hate. Most of my family love the movie, especially my youngest daughter who dances and sings to all the music. We’re super excited for the remake which is in the works!

Innerspace is a favorite 80s movie and a great one for music.

In this Sci-Fi comedy, Lt. Tuck Pendleton (Dennis Quaid) volunteers to participate in a science project where he’ll be miniaturized. He’s put inside a pod and shrunken down to microscopic size before being sucked back into a syringe. The plan is to be injected into a rabbit, but things quickly go awry when the science project is hijacked. In an attempt to save him from being kidnapped while in the syringe, the head scientist injects Tuck into a human named Jack (Martin Short). Not long after, Tuck discovers that he’s actually inside a human man after he implants a camera into the optic nerve. Not only can Tuck see what Jack sees, but they can talk back and forth to each other as well. Together, these two have to find a way to get Tuck back out before Jack is taken out by the bad guys or Tuck runs out of resources.
