Post some of your OLD SCHOOL Movies that you remember...

My friend sent me a link to this today:

Rad - 1986



That made me think of this movie:

Gleaming The Cube - 1989



And this movie:

Cloak & Dagger - 1984



I also have one that I can't think of the name. I kinda remember the plot being of a kid moving to a new town / school. He's picked on and crap. They are a bunch of rollerbladers... I think he ends up racing one of the bullies or something and beating him then becoming "cool"...

Well, since I'm relatively young, let me be the first to submit "Old School."

tbird2340, the movie about Rollerbladers is called Airborne, which btw also starred Seth Green and a younger, thinner Jack Black.

This was a made-for-tv movie on NBC. It starred a few NBC sitcom actors at that time ( 80's ). Michael J. Fox, Nacy McKean, Todd Bridges.

Yep. That's it.

Great cast.

I had it on video and never realized it was a TV movie. Apparently, it was a long pilot episode that they hoped would become a series. It was 100 minutes long and I always thought it was a movie.

I thought this was going to be about filmstrips you remember from school, and I was going to mention "Uncle Smiley." Does anyone remember that?
