Hi
Recently I did a movie marathon of 13 films from 1986 for charity. The only prob was a lot of the films were dated or just plain rubbish. It made it a difficult marathon to get through.
So, for my next one I was thinking I would re-look at the list I did and try to find other films with a similar plot.Only better. Much better.

For example, instead of Pee wee's Big Adventure as the #1 film on the list, I am going to replace it with Bycicle Thieves. Never seen it but I am told it's a must watch (bet it doesn't have a "skinny man dances on a table to Tequila by the Champs to defend himself against hillbillies" scene though.But it is about a bike being stolen. isn't it?
And I want the same plot or similar scene (or as near as) not just a better James Bond film to replace View to a Kill for example. A better replacement would be Superman 2 (cos they both have Eiffel Tower scenes), But you can do better then that.


So the order is chosen. Here is the 1986 list.
Please improve it.


☐ 8am: Pee Wee's Big Adventure - Replaced by Bicycle Thieves
☐ 10am: A View To A Kill
☐ 12pm: Clue
☐ 2pm: D.A.R.Y.L
☐ 4pm: Police Academy 2: Their First assignment
☐ 6pm: Jagged Edge
☐ 8pm: Commando
☐ 10pm: Lust in the Dust
☐ 12am: Fright Night
☐ 2am: Re-Animator
(sleep break)
☐ 10am: The Breakfast Club
☐ 12pm: The Last Dragon
☐ 2pm: Back To The Future

I can only improve it but changing it from 1986 to 1985.......

Also, couldn't you have done this in the previous thread, Frankie?

Why did you omit Aliens (1986)?

I thought he wanted films made in 1986 but Bicycle Thieves is 1948 so now I'm confused.
