The old platform gates at Frankston Railway Station, 1985 before demolition. We used to travel by train to Melbourne or Chelsea to the movies in the 60s- 70s before they built a cinema in Frankston in the late 70s. There used to be an one where the old Ball and Welch department store was when I grew up but I closed due to the impact of TV in the 50s.The station featured in Stanley Kramer's On The Beach.
In the late 40's and through the 50's there was very little else to watch on TV besides old movies. I grew up watching them all of the time. They are wonderful movies even by todays standards and I would recommend watching some of them. More plot and great acting rather then just a lot of hellaballoo. I got all of them correct! Good memory, huh? LOL
Once again it is Bad Movie Monday! This week we have Munchies. This Rodger Corman Gremlins knockoff was one of my favorite little monster movies as I grew up in the 80's. Sadly this film hasn't been released on DVD yet, and there is no sign of it ever happening. If you ever find it on TV or on VHS, I suggest it is worth a watch, even if just for the random Gremlins jokes. (Plus Star Trek Voyager's Doctor (Robert Picardo) Cameos!
We write a lot about the '90s here on Gurl (in case you didn't notice, we have a Flashback post at least once a week where we pay homage to our fave old TV shows, movies and fictional characters). That's because we love and miss the '90s, that magical decade where we all grew up and played with fun toys and watched things that were amazing and just basically had a lot of fun. But I don't even remember the 90s!
