Epic 80's movie night

I was up to feed Saxon foot his late night feed and turned on the television for a little background light and noise to keep me amused and awake, when I spot one of my all time favourite 80's movies is on: Gremlins. Epic! I haven't seen this in years, it's an absolute classic. It takes many leaves from many great movies in it'past and weaves then altogether into a brilliant story of boy meets girl, boy losses girl, boy gets mogwai, boy gets gremlins, gremlins get in the machines (blenders, fans, cars, etc, etc), boy saves girl. It's a classic story line that's been known and loved for generations.
Oh yeah, it also helps that said "girl" is none other than the 80's favourite it girl: the incomparable Phoebe Cates (swoon).
Looks like it's going to be another late night in front of the TV again.
As it turns out, I missed two other of the 80's classics: The Neverending Story 2 and Goonies. Both awesome in their own rights.
I really should keep an eye out for these things, but there's usually so little to watch. Must be ratings season, or something. Either way, I'm a happy little Vegemite right now.
