I guess your age to be around 15 years old.

No 15 year old could have movie taste this cool 😎

Using a mathematical algorithm and implementing the statistical analysis of varying age groups that correlate with the popularity of the films you listed, I have come to the conclusion that your age is...

Between 1 day old to 120 years old.
You Sir are correct!

Lots of good movies from the 1980's, going to guess you're 42.

Even closer still, ok I'm 40, for another 6 weeks or so.

My age is above top secret.

But I can share with you that crystal balls purchased off the Internet is a bad call.





80's rock!

Well, since you still buy discs like us old buggers, you have to be about 40. Or at least 40?

We all know you only get the blue ray so you could get a better image of the volleyball scene

My husband has a whole collection of Top Gun - including the making of, which he loves. Our poor kids grew up watching it about every weekend.
He also has a replica of the motorcycle Maverick has in that movie, and even had some cowboy boots altered to be the same as those in the movie - he rides that bike with the whole outfit on.

He has the cockpit in which he put a computer and flight simulator, and I have found him in there playing with the music of Top Gun blaring. Now it is being housed in a aircraft museum, which made a whole corner dedicated to his collection, so he really has a great time! They put a background around it of a aircraft carrier, mannequins around with full gear (including a catapault officer) and.... a smoke machine!

He's 51, and it was Taxi Driver that sparked his passion for collecting Checker Cabs.

Funny how films impact generations so clearly.

Our Xgens were influenced by stories of people struggling with their frustrated dark sides and feelings of being isolated, taking risks and refusing authority.

My kids generation started with "Pocahontas", and continued on with "Avatar" - they excell at being part of a team, eat healthy, don't smoke, and my daughter uses olive oil to clean her babies rear instead of commercial diaper wipes.
This Christmas, they were talking about Disney's version of "Robin Hood", which for some reason really had an impact on their memories... maybe the older Conservatives do have something to worry about....

I figure whatever your age is I am either old enough to be your mom
or your grandma.My 15 year old grandson has a decent movie collection.
The difference is is that he doesn't take very good care of them.

A few of my other (already owned) favourite blurays are; The Thing 1982 Stand by me The lost boys Alien (all) Jaws One flew over the cuckoo's nest Ferris Beullers day off Shawshank Redemption


Infolurker's are right on point of course.

I'll add:

The Cutting Edge (one chick flick we guys never cop to)
Goonies
Labyrinth
NeverEnding Story
Legend
Beverly Hills Cop
Ghostbusters
Back to the Future
Big Trouble in Little China
Hot Shots (Top Gun spoof)
Red Dawn
Wargames

Do I really need to go on?

I wasn't aware anyone still bought blurays.

I have never seen them cheaper on Amazon though.

Dune.

Dune must be in ever movie collection, and I do not mean the remakes.

Frank Herberts Dune 1984.

There was another Dune that never was



Good documentary about the Dune that never was and would have been miles better than Lynch's Dune which wasn't all that good
