Comment: Some simple wooden bunk beds and also some single beds in this dorm. Also this or more likely another large, sparse room with few beds. Main characters are the 9 and 14 yo brothers.

Looks quite interesting, but I prefer other and colorful movies.

So rating 5-6 only.

Comment: Some boys, including many older teen boys in this cabin with steel bunk beds. At least around 4 bunk beds in this cabin. Probably more cabins, but I think not shown.

Quite interesting, so rating 6-7. But there are much better camp and Scout movies.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 3.

Rating: ***
Comment: Some young soldiers (conscripts) including 20 yo Frederick Lau in this dorm with 3 story bunk beds.

I like the 80s and Frederick Lau but I don’t like this movie. 3 story bunk beds are quite unusual but maybe nothing special in barracks.

I’ve added the tag 3 story and previousy had “Too Young the Hero” starring Rick Schroder (rating 6, at the Navy).

Kind of beds: rare bunk beds

Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Next to the “beds” on the ship, I think mainly or only hammocks, there are also these rare bunk beds behind a wall opening, I think in a builing in ep 4. I only know wall niche beds in medieval and 18/19th century settings.

The bunk beds have (at least) 2 stories. Unfortunately, I haven’t noticed better views of them. Mainly wooden but with steel ladders. There are in total 12 boys (+ crew) but not sure if all sharing one room. Maybe some sleeping on the floor or in other rooms.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 6. English title: Western Lights.

Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Ken, Janey, Haley, Steve ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: s1+2
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: There are at least 2 simple, wooden bunk beds in this large bedroom, but (according to Wikipedia) the family consists of just 3 older teen kids, I think Ken (Ashley Knight ~20 yo, oldest kid), Janey (black teen girl Lola Young) and Haley (Lucinda Bateson). Maybe one bed is empty? Or the 4th bed is owned by Steve (20 yo Gary Shail ?)

Haley also in tight, light blue bib overalls, other blog rating 5.

Unusual large and quite interesting bedroom. Older teen kids and bother and sister sharing one room. Could be worse.

For bedroom, rating 4-5. Partly available on DVD.

Das doppelte Lottchen (2017)

doppeltelottchen2017bed

Family TV film, remake, novel by Erich Kästner
Year: 2017
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: 10 girls ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: yes ?
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least 5, maybe 6 or 7 bunk beds in this girls’ room of this boarding school. At least one on the opposite side (right) next some lockers. There are also boys in this boarding school shown, but I haven’t noticed any other dorm. Probably the others look the same. Primitive bunk beds (metal ?).

Has been aired today. The first half is quite good, also showing boys and girls in swimwear (soon on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4). And girls in pigtails (other blog, rating 6).

But besides that, the movie is quite poor and there are several other movies with this plot of the twins.

For bedrooms rating 3-4 only.

Happy Easter!

Comment:
180 city teens of LA at a mountain camp. 60 minutes. Very simple, selfmade wooden bunk beds. I think mainly older teens. Not sure if more than 2 bunk beds in each room/cabin. Maybe 4?

I found this (and one other) nice documentary on archive.org.

No entry on IMDb (but on tcm).

I only have checked it briefly.

Rating 6-7.

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys at Summer camp in dorms with these white metal bunk beds. I think at least 2 rows, so maybe 6 or 8 bunk beds (in each room).

Also on my shiny shorts blog with very good scenes of boys wearing shiny shirts including Adidas, some shirtless (rating 7).

The bunk beds are probably older and look like (Western European) 1950s beds.

Interesting series but I can’t give any rating higher than 5 or 6 for these beds.

Comment:
Some, mainly younger teen boys shirtless at a summer camp. At least 2 or maybe 4 bunk beds in one cabin and I think 2 more separate beds (at least in some and/ or in one of the girls cabins). At least 3 or 4 boys in one room what would be quite few.

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it.

Maybe not as famous as the 1980s original movie (rating 5), but at least nice wooden bunk beds and shirtless scenes and obviously a good horror movie to me. The other sequels still needs to be checked.

So rating 7 for now.

Next post in January.

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!

Update: Chiquititas (1995)

chiquititas1995-nb2chiquititas1995-nb3

Searching for Chiquititas Brasil (1997) for my overalls blog, I stumbled by coincidence again into this original Argentinian series and found some very interesting new bunk beds. As usual interesting and very colorful.

Pic 1 is from ep 81 in 1998. Boys room and wooden red bunk beds like London buses.

Pic 2 a green room I think of the girls. Same episode. Metal bunk beds green/blue. At least 2 bunk beds and at least one separate bed. Probably not more in this smal room.

Rating 9 for now. Still needs to be checked later.

Main entry, previously rated 3
