Random thing that interested you enough to post it

If there's a useless thread in here, chances are excellent that JJ created it.

Damn, June of 1981 was a slobber knocker of a month for movies.

Clash of the Titans
History of the World: Part 1
Raiders of the Lost Motherfucking Ark
Cannonball Run
Superman 2
For Your Eyes Only
The Great Muppet Caper
Stripes

all that, plus a Cheech and Chong movie, Dragonslayer and something called Force: Five

I have done zero research on this, but I challenge anyone to find a better month of releases.
The :) means it's all ok.

To be fair, I think only Raiders, Superman 2 and Stripes really stand the test of time out of that list.

Take a look at January 1976:

Logan's Run
Marathon Man
Murder by Death
Network
The Outlaw Josey Wales

and one more little one that might just catch your eye, A²:
The Pom Pom Girls

July 1980 looked pretty good too:

Airplane!
My Bodyguard
The Big Red One
Cheech & Chong's Next Movie
Used Cars
Caddyshack

Check out July 1982:

Poltergeist
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
ET: The Extra-Terrestrial
Blade Runner
The Thing
Robin: "Gosh, Batman, is there anything you don't know?"
Batman: "Oh yes, Robin. Several things, in fact."

Was watching a bit of Escape from New York earlier, and in the scene when Snake is leaving the library with Harold, he explains how he is helping The Duke "clear the 69th St Bridge". In all the times I've seen this film, it's the first time I've noticed this geographical anomaly (the bridge is actually at 59th St). Guess I should pay better attention.
Ahhhhh!!!! Fall!

So ... does that bridge make you feel groovy?

I don't know how many times I have seen the movie Psycho, but this is the first time I ever noticed I recognized the cop who opens the door to Norman's holding cell at the very end of the film. Thank you Ted Night
