This week sees the release of two very different romances on blu-ray. One is a classic 80s romance that is beloved by many and features one of the most iconic film images of the 80s. The other is a new comedy that is packed full of laughs, despite the unceremonious way it was dumped into theaters with hardly any publicity. Both are great flicks that should be on your list to at least rent, if not to own.
The movie also has some great (and quotable) lines and as I said one of the most iconic images of 80s film. One of these lines, featured on the box, is one I love so much that my AIM screenname is derived from it: "I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen." And if anyone doesn't immediately recognize the image of Cusack holding the boombox over his head, then they probably weren't alive in 1989. That scene alone, with Dobler professing his love for Diane, by allowing Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" to say everything he can't is worth the purchase of this movie. I highly recommend you get out there and grab yourself a copy of the film. Although I will say if you already own the previous DVD release, it's probably not worth double-dipping, as this one has all the old features, with the only new addition being the inclusion of a retrospective of the film.
