Nightbreed is probably not all that it could have been but is still a movie I have always found interesting.
I have to say to my shame, I was out-geeked on the subject of Hellraiser recently - I didn't know there were three sequels after Bloodline - though of the four I have seen, the original is really the only one I would say is a good movie. So perhaps, scratch Hellraiser movies, insert Hellraiser.
On the subject of naff sequels, by next year there surely would be the opportuity for a Lost Boys triple bill. The Lost Boys 2 is complete bobbins and one is not overly confident that The Thirst will be any better. But The Lost Boys on the big screen must be kinda cool, and certainly different.
With the Fright Night remake due later this year, early next, a Fright Night/Fright Night 2 double bill might be in order on grounds of topicality.
Akira is something I have been interested in seeing on the big screen since I emptied my piggy bank to buy the vhs in 1990 (91?) Ghost in the Shell too.
As regards TV Heaven, I daresay ongoing controversy around William Mayne might scupper it as it has dvd release but I certainly remember enjoying the 1990s BBC Children's adaptation Earthfasts. And indeed the slightly earlier ones of Peter Dickinson's The Gift and Diane Wynee Jones' Archer's Goon. Possible candidates?
Flash Gordon serials are great fun but the current non-availability of the Buster Crabbe Buck Rodgers and King of the Rocketmen this side of the atlantic, would make those titles of more interest to me.
