Comedy film Corey Haim, Corey Feldman
Year: 1988
Year in film: 1980s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Les ~16. Others
Kind of beds: single ?
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Corey Haim (pics 1+2), ~16 or 17 yo, I think alone in this room. Pic 3 showing friend Corey Feldman, probably in his room. Corey Haim has a sister in this movie (Nina Siemaszko), a bit older, probably with a room for her own (I haven’t seen hers). Corey Feldman has a much younger film sister ~9 yo, but I haven’t seen that room either.

Nice but typical 80s bedrooms. But there are better movies of the 2 Coreys. Few bedroom scenes.

So rating 5 only.

Update: Corey Haim also has a younger film brother ~11 yo Christopher Burton. I think he has a room for his own?

La segunda guerra de los niños

segundaguerradelosninossegundaguerradelosninos2

Family film. Band Parchis
Year: 1981
Year in film: 1980 ?
Country: Spain
Who in bedroom: David, Carlitos ~10
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: I think 2 boys in this room in wooden beds. Not sure about their names. The blonde is probably David Munoz (or redhaired Oscar Canada). The other, chubby boy with short hair in pic 1, I think not from the band, is probably Rodrigo Valdecantos. Maybe they are brothers in the movie?

I only have checked this briefly. But I think rather few good scenes, mainly or only at the beginning. Also all in blue coveralls.

Rating ~4-5 for now.

I have some other movies on my bib overalls and shiny shorts blog.

A Swarm in May

Year in film: 1980s
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: boys ~ 9-10 ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: VHS only ?
I own: no
Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: First I think a boy in a room with s single bed, then a small dorm with 5 or 6 or even more wooden bunk beds at a boarding school. At least 3 bunk beds on this right side and at least 2 on the opposite side. Plot is a bout choir boys.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s but the furnitures in pic 2 look like the 70s. 1955 novel by William Mayne.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4.

For the bedrooms, rating 6-7.

Comment:
11 yo (season 1) Jerry Supiran as 10 yo Jamie alone in this bedroom with the robot girl Vicky (who rests standing in a cupboard). Pic 1 from s1e8 (checkered wallpaper), pic 2 from s3e24 (other wallpaper appears white and a larger window).

Nice and funny 80s series. Also girls in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4 as well).

I don’t know all episodes. Maybe more bedrooms shown (at least of the parents). But mainly this one is shown.

For now rating 4-(5) only.

Comment:
Oliver Robinson, around 15 yo but looking younger (also in Don’t Go to Sleep (1982), rating 4 +sister) I think alone in this bedroom in s1e15, segment Monsters! (1986).

I thought, I already had an entry.

I haven’t checked more episodes, yet.

Also on my bib overalls blog (incl. Bill Mumy in 1961, rating 5) and soon on my pigtails blog.

I like the 80s.

For now rating 5. Probably even higher for other episodes.

Comment:
3 boys and 2 girls sharing one larger bed (or 2 put together), but with separate sheets or sleeping bags.

I think there are are also other bedrooms/beds shown (of the grown ups).

Rather few good (bedroom) scenes.

So rating 2-3 only.

Also bib overalls including snow overalls (other blog rating 3) and other scenes of interest. Soon on my pigtails blog.

Comment:
2 older boys sharing a room.

Not sure if they are brothers but it’s likely. Probably Barney and Ben?

Sorry, I can’t say much more. Directed by Eddy Kalinski. Also shirtless and (partial) undressing scenes. Rural setting.

No entry on IMDb.

Rating 4-5.

Highway to Heaven – s4e13

highwaytoheavens4e132highwaytoheavens4e13

4 orphaned brothers, 3 younger ones ~8-11 including Christian Guzek and older Michael Faustino.

No bedrooms but they sleep together in the rear of a van (pic 1). Pic 2 maybe elsewhere.

Also great jeans and fighting scenes of Christian Guzek, rating 9.

For the “bedroom” rating 3-4.

As usual, quite touching at the end (courtroom). Main overview entry

Highway to Heaven – s4e2

highwaytoheavens4e2highwaytoheavens4e2b

Danny Pintauro at an orphange in s4e1 and yesterday’s s4e2 (1987). Also later in a room for his own.

Typical adoption/runaway/dog plot but very handsome actor.

Not bad. Small dorm. At least 4 beds in this room.  I think 3 or 4 close each other, not sure if one or 2 rows. There’s at least one at the other side. 8 kids are shown, so maybe 2 rows of 4. But there are obviously more rooms.

Main entry rating up to 6

Comment:
There are 2 brothers played by John Cusack and Scooter Stevens (younger boy in pic 1) . I’m not sure but I think they both have rooms for their own. There’s also a room of a teen girl and the parents shown.

I have briefly checked it at high speed and there are few and brief bedroom scenes. Needs to be rechecked more carefully the next airing.

Nice 80s movie. But there are better ones. I don’t like Cusack.

Also on my bib overalls blog (woman rating 5).

For the bedroom(s) rating 4-5 for now. Could be higher when they share a room.
