„It happens sometimes. Friends come in and out of our lives, like busboys in a restaurant.“




Es ist Zeit für eine weitere Liste in der Chronologie meiner Lebensjahre. 1986 ist an der Reihe und dieses Jahr hat unter anderem den einen oder anderen Eintrag in dem erweiterten Kreis meiner Lieblingsfilme zu bieten. Also los, betrachten wir auszugsweise ein Jahr, in welchem uralte, fernöstliche Magie San Francisco heimsuchte, Kinder ihre Kindheit verloren, abgeschnittene Ohren auf Rasenflächen lagen, bizarre genetische Mutationen auftraten und Serienmörder gejagt wurden oder Fotoreporter um ihr Leben kämpfen mussten und garstige Aliens einigen Marines nach dem Leben trachteten. Und nun geht es auch schon los:
