US-American Kesun Loder in this 1950s bedroom with blue pillow and sheets. He’s also shown walking in pajamas. Looking younger than 12 to me.

Had been aired yesterday. Sorry, I recorded too late and haven’t a good pic of the complete room.

Happy Halloween! This is a very good and funny Halloween and Zombie movie also suitable for (older) kids.

Although I am quite busy and have some other (better) entries to post here. I decided to post this as I like this movie and it’s set in the 1950s. I prefer movies with brothers and more than 1 in a room and also will post some unusual movies like that with non-US bedrooms (I recently had problems finding good pics or movies with German bedrooms set in the 1970s or 1980s).

Nothing much to tell more about this movie. And bedrooms are not the major plot here.

Rating 3-4 for this bedroom (but I have to recheck it) and 5-6 for the movie.

I also have updated The Adventures of Spin and Marty (rating 8). Probably the best ranch series with at least 5 bunk beds (and handsome boys and teen boys in jeans).

Update: rating 5-6 for Fido. Also shown a red room of the parents (separated beds).

Comment:
Bretton Manley at the beginning of the movie in this nice blue bedroom. Wooden single bed and sharing it with the teddy. I think no siblings. At least not in this room. Other bedroom scenes of grown-ups as well (grey room, white sheets, nothing special).

Had been aired some days ago. But for some reason I haven’t seen it completely.

However I assume very few good (bedroom) scenes. Older John is played by Mark Wahlberg and probably that’s the main plot of this movie.

Nominated even for an Oscar. Maybe a quite unusual movie about a teddy bear but obviously only few scenes of younger actors and rather poor movie to me.

Rating 4-5 for this few scenes of that bedroom. Must be set in about the 1980s. I like this room but would be much better with brothers and or bunk beds.

Comment:
Tommy Rettig (“Lassie (1954)” acting in this quite rare movie. Interesting bedroom (for a western). Gold colored steel bed. Also shown sleeping (close up).

Very handsome boy actor. And also good and romantic scenes. Good western.

The movie is not officially on DVD but aired from time to time. Now a German DVD (In Acht und Bann).

For more infos see my new western blog (westernclothesfilmblog, see my linklist), rating 8.

For the bedroom scene rating 6 only (no siblings, few scenes).

Davis Moscow as 12-13 yo Josh and later Tom Hanks in the wooden bunk bed on pic 2 with the messy room. Used is the upper bunk, the lower bunk is probably empty. There is also a toddler sleeping in the room on the opposite wall. Tom Hanks on the top bunk in pic 2 and I think 37 yo Elizabeth Perkins in the lower bunk. Josh has also a 13 yo friend Billy (played by Jared Rushton (“Overboard”) in  a romm for his own (different location) and probably no siblings.

Very good and funny  80s movie. I liked it then and still have it somewhere on a DVDr but haven’t seen it for many years. I have to recheck it for more and other bedroom scenes. But I think rather few good scenes are shown. Pics 2 is taken from the trailer.

Rating 4 for the bedrooms (although I like the 80s) and rating 7-8 for the movie. Nominated for 2 Oscars.

Update I have checked this movie at high speed. Few good bedroom scenes, and the first is even a bunk bed (I previously only had a view from the lower bunk). Also perfect scenes of boys in green shiny shorts (rating at least 7-8).

Benji Gregory in this bedroom, I think in s3e17. Here feared and under his bed.

Good and typical American bedroom. He also has an older sister, but she has a room for her own.

Currently running on TV. Also on my overalls blog (he and his sister).

I will check this for other / better scenes in later seasons.

Rating 4-5 for now. Unfortunately no brothers. But I like USA and the 1980s. And quite funny series (for it’s time).

Some younger and older (teen) girls and boys in different very colorful bedrooms. Kids are from about 6 (girl) to 15 yo.

From my bib overalls blog (rating 5).

Interesting series for younger kids but I didn’t pay much attention for the bedrooms. First I thought that there are 2 in pic 1 from a different angle, but thats a bench or similar. Maybe there’s another bed in the room? But at least there are different rooms for boys. Probably single beds and separate rooms? At least one girl has a younger sister. Not sure if they sharing one room.

Also starring Jeremy Miller (“Growing Pains”), but I think in one episode only (and probably not showing his bedroom).

I have to recheck more episodes. There is also a sequel series.

Rating 4-5 for now. For more infos see my other blog.
