I'll start with Memphis Belle, because I got it for free the other day and am watching it now. Smiley

Matthew Modine
D.B. Sweeney
Billy Zane
Sean Astin
Harry Connick Jr.
David Strathairn
John Lithgow

It was released in 1990 - I bet most of you didn't know Sean went back that far. Wink

Comparing David from then to now, he seems to have aged 30 years.

And Harry - oh, that voice!  I need some more of that.

And John.  Well, John is timeless. Smiley

Sean Astin?  Wasn't he already reasonably well-known for The Goonies (1985) by that time?

'Fraid I don't have any good stories about...  Oh, no, wait, I guess I do.  Not that I'd classify him as one of my favorites (I'm pretty neutral about him), but I still always think of Heath Ledger as "that guy from Roar", which was back in 1997.  Roar was so short-lived and little-known that he didn't register on most people's radar until 3-4 years later with The Patriot and A Knight's Tale, at the very least.  (And I suspect a lot of people still didn't know who he was until Brokeback Mountain in 2005.)

Jennifer Connelly in "Labyrinth." What a great part for a young woman! There are still folks who raved over her in "A Beautiful Mind" (which I did see, and thoroughly enjoyed) who refused to believe me when I told them where I first saw her.

Ye gods, I haven't seen The Goonies since it first came out!  And I liked it!

I own The Patriot, and so have not forgotten Heath.  He gave his all there, and it was very much appreciated.

(Notes about Memphis Belle; they were accurate about the B-17E/F to the point of boring.  My only nit is that the attacking FW-190s would have had a lot more tracers zipping about them, due to the box formation the allied bombers used.  The B-17s shot down more fighters than their escorts, thanks to this simple innovation.)

I would like to have seen more interaction between the Strathairn and Lithgow characters, but that wasn't my call.

In the end, a memorable show.

When and where did you ever see your favorite actors/directors/producers come to light?

I first saw John Lithgow in The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai and the Hong Kong Cavaliers Across the 8th Dimension, in 1984.  I normally have no memory for actor's names at all, (even the stars)  but Dr. Lizardo (aka Lord John Whorfin) made an impression.  I can't think of anything else I've recognized him in except 3rd Rock from the Sun, but that's normal for me.  I could have seen him in any number of films, but if his acting was good it would be the character's name I would remember, and if it was bad it would just drift on out of my head anyway.

I want one!

My dh's reaction the first time I called him 'Monky-Boy' was priceless.  I finally got him VHS copy so he could see where some of my weirder quotes were coming from.  Especially when I would respond to the word 'booty' with 'BigbootayTay! Tay!

I haven't seen Buckaroo Bonzai in twenty years.

Time to see it again!

(Don't forget The World According to Garp.)

Tom Hanks in Mazes and Monsters ('82).  It really showed off his capabilities as a dramatic actor, something we didn't see a lot of as his career was taking off - a lot of his big roles were comedy.

One of my favorite movies. It didn't do much for Lyric, however.

I remember Bachelor Party, but not that one.  Interesting...

Semi OT - Heath Ledger is the Joker in the new Batman movie.

Actors/Movies... hmm... Speaking of the Joker, that was the first movie that I remember seeing Jack Nicholson in.  Dude gives me the creeps still. *shudder*

"Sarah Plain and Tall" - This was a made for t.v. movie I believe.  It introduced me to Christopher Walken (who didn't play some freaked out psycho for a change) - which is probably why I totally enjoy this actor's work even when his characters a psycho and like him as opposed to Jack.

Movie with a great ensemble cast - "Cop Land".  Best Sly Stallone acting I'd ever seen.  Totally impressed me. Since I just read the rambo thread this movie is stuck in my head right now and it's the only one of his I really liked.

Oh, and ...

"The Big Lebowski" for Steve Buscemi, a completely new and interesting John Goodman, and of course "The Dude."

I totally need to add a Dude quote to my sig now....
