Posterized: Now Playing June 1981

Happy Summer Solstice everyone. Let's step into our time machine once again and travel back to 1981 and see what movies were playing theatrically in cinemas throughout America thirty years ago this summer. Included amongst this blockbuster summer releases our such stalwarts like Burt Reynolds, James Bond, the Muppets, Bill Murray and Superman, and one soon to be summer icon, of course I am referring to Demonoid, Messenger of Death. I can't tell you how many times I dragged my parents to that film, and then made them buy me the lunch boxes, collector glasses, action figures and footie pajamas. I know after all the prequels we've all been so inundated with Demonoid, Messenger of Death nostalgia that fatigue has started to set in, but let's remember before he was a product, and touched our hearts and ignited our imaginations for the first time.

Also, that film with Indiana Jones came out this month.

Good month! Dragonslayer, Raiders of the Lost Ark, STRIPES, and Superman II (even if it wasn't Richard Donner's cut). Thanks, Colonel.
