Cinema Du Meep's Top Older Films Seen 1st in 2010

Do yourself a favor if you haven't already and head on over to CINEMA DU MEEP. Well worth your time. An excellent film blog always frothing with fantastic content! And now, his list!


Here are 10 films I've seen for the first time in 2010... Each one of these, except for Best Friends and Fandango, is sadly not currently available on DVD. Luckily each of these films are available to stream on Netflix. I was happy to catch them finally!

Best Friends (1982) Directed by Norman Jewison - I checked it was writing a blog about Goldie Hawn and this was the only one of her films I hadn't seen.

Chilly Scenes Of Winter (1979) Written & Directed by Joan Micklin Silver - A quirky relationship film from the director of Hester Street and one of my favorites, Crossing Delancey.

Fandango (1985) Written & Directed by Kevin Reynolds - Before Robin Hood and that Waterworld fiasco, Kevin Reynolds & Kevin Costner made this fun, buddy road movie.

Heartaches (1981) Directed by Donald Shebib - Margot Kidder and Annie Potts are phenomenal here in this story of two very different women who become roommates.

Highway To Hell (1991) Directed by Ate De Jong - Another fun & strange flick from the director of Drop Dead Fred. Tons of ingenuity especially considering the small budget.

Last Embrace (1979) Directed by Jonathan Demme - A surprising and effective mystery-thriller starring Roy Scheider.

Lemon Popsicle (1978) Written & Directed by Boaz Davidson - I finally caught the first of The Lemon Popsicle series after all these years! The early inspiration for Davidson's 1982 hit "The Last American Virgin"

A New Life (1988) Written & Directed by Alan Alda - Alda's New York set divorce comedy is a pretty funny and strangely cozy movie. I have always really liked his films as a director.

Rich Kids (1979) Directed by Robert M. Young - Two kids who's parents have gone through a divorce bond in this moving coming of age picture set in the upper west side of Manhattan.

Vicious Lips (1987) Written & Directed by Albert Pyun - One really bizarre, undefinable movie show. See it at your own risk!
