Hmmm... I thought that films about Dirty Harry was produced even earlier than 20 years ago.
They were. The original Dirty Harry came out in 1971, followed by sequels:

Magnum Force (1973)
The Enforcer (1976)
Sudden Impact (1983)

and then The Dead Pool, which I just found out was actually 1988...sorry, my mistake.

Oh, and how could I forget Jaws IV: The Revenge, (crap though it may be). It also came out in 1987.

I remember seeing it in the theatre with my godmother...scared the shit out of me.

Well, I was only 10, gimme a break.

Relax and try to take pleasure. :)

P.S. 20 years ago I was 12.
Magnum Force (1973)
The Enforcer (1976)
Sudden Impact (1983)

I watch this films on TV on last Russian Xmas vacations. But I at all did not see 'Dead Pool'.
Strawberry Shortcake(original)
Labyrinth was '87, but E.T. was '82 and Gremlins was '84.

Strawberry Shortcake, though...I don't know about that one. I'm a boy.

Labyrinth was '87- yeah I kew it was around there. I didn't have my copy in front of me. Actually it was '86. Released in June.

E.T.- oh yeah, how could I forget that... My memory around that time is fuzzy.

Strawberry Shortcake, though- 1980
- "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" by Pink Floyd (or, David Gilmour solo album, depending on your point of view...)

I'll be 34 in a few weeks time.
SHUT UP!!! I am not that old!!!
-"Appetite for Destruction" by Guns N' Roses

That's the one that clinched it for me. Suddenly, I feel about 50.
