Remember that One Movie? 'batteries not included'

This week I want to take you back to 1987.

'batteries not included' is the story of some down on their luck apartment building tenants and their unlikely bonding with aliens from outer space.

 It's a feel good film, but I still feel that it holds up today.  Yes some of the graphics and CGI work are not so great, but who really cares?  It's a classic from the 80's and I think it's still a tremendously fun film to watch.

Director: Matthew Robbins (the Legend of Billie Jean)
Starring: Academy Award Winner Jessica Tandy (Driving Miss Daisy), Hume Cronyn (her real life husband) and Elizabeth Peña (Rush Hour).
