Kevin Bacon returns to the Payson High School in Utah on their prom day, where he filmed Footloose 40 years ago, ahead of the school demolition in 2025

The students of the high school had months long campaign to bring Kevin Bacon back, the Utah governor was also involved

Not sure what these are, IMDB show they had a $8 million combined budget and only earn $6 million total plus home video

May 12th, 1984 is the day of their arrival

(One of those kids resemble the whiny Marine in Aliens)



Kyle Reese lands in 1984 and he puts on a pair of dirty pants he stole from a homeless street bum.

Guy has guts!



never seen these , the scene with Sarah and Kyle talking about Cyberdine and Sarah uttering her Fate line should had stayed, that's a good scene showing Sarah as a future fighter with a sole purpose of stopping judgement day and the rest of the Terminator universe.

The last deleted scene should had left it too for setting up a sequel.

Ah, so you guys missed City Limits too?

Luckily MST3K has a experiment with it. James Earl Jones, Robby Benson and Kim Cattrall and motorcycles, and a rather prophetic use of electric powered RC models as weapons.




Barmy OFFer in questionable standing, maybe collapsed in a corner?

I'm a huge MST3K fan and the City Limits episode is one of my favorites. It's the only bad movie I've seen James Earl Jones in. smile

And James gets in a few good zingers. Like Crow was mentioning everyone of the actors in this movie were pretending it wasn't as bad as it was. The other motorcycle themed bad movie they panned was the Italian made Warrior of the Lost World. That was funny.

Ah yes, the one with Donald Pleasance as the main villain. He was one of those actors who always turned in a good performance regardless of how bad the movie might be.

And "the Paper Chase Guy" as the anti-hero lead. His acting was, I suppose, meant to be the tough guy of few words, but comes off like a 13 year old's whiny petulance. And the AI bike was really annoying.

And for you astute Star Trek fans, Persis Khambatta was also in the film (Ilia from ST: The Motion Picture).
