Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Comment:
Some boys and teen boys in different, tight shorts including white, black and blue. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not or not that shiny. Looks like typical Rugby clothes. Pic from s2e9.

Also older teen boys or young men in light blue, yellow, dark blue, black and white shorts in s2e20. Maybe others in shorts in other episodes?

I don’t know all episodes. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Comment:
A shirtless boy standing and sitting in light blue shorts. Pic from the trailer. Also other boys in shorts including dark blue, green and white with stripes. And men also in swim shorts with a belt. One boy in shorts with H-style suspenders.

The setting looks modern, but it’s obviously in 1944 as there are also other people in historical swimwear shown. So most likely not of shiny fabric but cotton. (Sorry, I’ve seen that too late).

But the movie looks still quite interesting. But I haven’t seen it completely, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment:
A woman in I think medium blue 70s shorts (not sure if very shiny) and a man shirtless in shiny red shorts.

Very interest movie, novel by Stephen King. Great actors, props and plot (bedroom blog rating 7). But I prefer younger actors.

So rating 2-3 only.

For more infos, see my other blog. For another entry starring Lance Kerwin in blue/red swim shorts and some others in shiny shorts, rating 10, see the TOP#10 rank 4 and

Comment: I thought, I already had this series. Several kids and teens in swimwear including shiny shorts and shirtless scenes. But many in speedos. At least an older man in light red shorts.

Pic 1 is from ep 11 showing an older boy in light blue shorts. Pics 2+3 are from ep 5 showing a younger and an older boy in dark blue, 70s style shorts. I don’t know all episodes. Maybe more and even better scenes, not sure about girls and women.

Rating 6 for now.

Also for a long time on my bedroom blog, rating 4.

Comment: Some Soccer boys in longer light blue and red shorts. Goalkeeper (main character) in black. Most or all wearing long black tights underneath. (Tagging as sweat pants). I almost forgot this movie.

I haven’t seen the complete movie, but obviously only this brief scene at the beginning only.

Available on the ARD mediathek.

Some boys are handsome.

Rating 4 only, due to the brief scene.

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts, shiny shorts and speedos including shirtless scenes, also in shiny shorts. A blonde boy in red Adidas shorts (is it Adidas ?), another older boy in medium blue 70s style tight shorts (also shirtless, sitting and cycling). Younger boys in white, light grey and/or light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

Quite interesting movie but could be better.

Rating 5-6. I think not on DVD.

Comment: Some boys at PE (6th grade only?) in different shorts in ep 2. Most in light blue shorts with one red stripe at the sides. But also medium blue, dark blue, black and red. Not sure about the fabric. At least the medium blue shorts are shiny (2 teen boys, shorts appearing darker in the shadow). Also good rear view (light blue). Most shorts are tight. The dark shorts are probably of cotton and have one white stripe, almost US style.

Interesting movie and shorts. But in total rather few scenes.

Rating 6-7.

English title: The Adventures of the Electronic, Russian title: Приключения Электроника. Filmed in 1979 (or earlier). So maybe one of the earliest ones in the Soviet Union with shiny shorts.

Comment: Two boys in dark blue and yellow swim shorts in s2e10 and Soccer boys and girls in black, white and blue shorts s2e4.

Also a boy (Bernard) in light blue shorts sitting on the grass, a girl in red and a boy in green shorts (Soccer) and some in the locker room. Unknown episode. YouTube clip “Titles and special effects”.

After Woof!, I also found this nice series from the same Director.

Funny plot about stopping the time. I assume rather few good scenes. Kids are also quite young. I haven’t checked all episodes.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my pigtails blog, rating 4.

Comment: Some kids at and in a lake shirtless in swimwear near the beginning. Most notable this handsome blonde boy in mainly dark blue swim shorts (probably not or not that shiny). One other, maybe younger boy sitting far in the background in medium blue (shiny ?) shorts, one or two others in light blue and other blue (board) shorts including an older teen boy.

Has been aired on Easter. The first half is quite good but later it’s very boring. Also on my pigtails blog (rating 6) and on my bedroom blog (rating 3).

For swim shorts rating 5-6. Unfortunately rather few (good) scenes. Several more kids, but mostly from a distance. Also girls but none or no notable in shorts.
