So vastly different to today's films, the 80's has some amazing cinema which you don't see today unless it's for the sake of having that type of feel. So I want to ask, what's your favourite 80's movies?

I would have to say mine are probably Scarface and The Breakfast Club.

Oh, the 80's! It seemed like they green lighted any script that came across thier desk and for that I salute the 80's. I think those movies had this cheesiness and light-hearted atmosphere which is lacking in movies today. Funny movies like Howard the Duck, Adventures in Babysitting and Police Academy would probably not work today even though in retrospect, they are the pioneers of today's comedy.

Anywho, here goes mine:

- The Goonies
- Monster Squad
- Ghostbusters 1 & 2
- Gremlins 1& 2
- Back to the future 1,2 & 3
- The lost boys
- Silver Bullet
- Teenwolf 1 & 2
- The Karate Kid 1,2 &3
- Class
- Spaceballs

I love the entire decade. There are way too many action and comedy classics to list and even the sh*tty 80's movies are great in at least a campy, slightly painful way.

Oh man. This is tough, but I'll have to go with this top five, with my favorite quotes.

1. Back to the Future The perfect combo of sci-fi, adventure, and comedy. And I so wanted to be as cool as Marty McFly, even if he is terrible at keeping the secret that he's from the future to himself. Like when he wrote a letter to Doc Brown and read it out loud inside of a diner. Mr. Carruthers has to know.
QUOTE (Marty McFly)
"Dear Dr. Brown. On the night that I go back in time, you will be shot by terrorists. Please take whatever precautions are necessary to prevent this terrible disaster. Your friend, Marty.

2. The Empire Strikes Back Do I really have to explain why, with a user name like mine?
QUOTE (Han Solo)
Who's scruffy-looking?

3. Indiana Jones Trilogy I'll count these as one, because I love them all. It's Han Solo fighting the Nazis, need I say more.
QUOTE (Short Round)
Oakey dokey, Dr. Jones.  Hold on to your potatoes!

4. Commando There are many many great action movies from the 80s with a similar tone and story. First Blood 2 is close. But I just love this movie. I've probably watched it more than any of these movies.
QUOTE (Sully after being rejected by Cindy)
You f*cking whore.

5. Trading Places Eddie Murphy in his prime. Dan Aykroyd acting like a prick. And Jamie Lee Curtis' amazing rack.

I really thought Home Alone and The Goodfellas were 1989, turns out they were 1990. Damn it.

Too many to post them all. The '80 were really great period for the movies and many legends begun in that time.

Unexpected choice, but interesting one. Too bad I never saw that movie myself when I was young. I do recall it was milked with a dozen sequels.

A dozen? More like 11 of them.

For me, it has to be a tie between Koyaanisqatsi and A Grand Day Out.

The Terminator is awesome, and it's sequel is even better imo (some may disagree). I need to watch both again some time.

Oh wow so much great stuff from back then. The Empire Strikes back has to be my favorite Star Wars film. And then there's the Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Die Hard. Love Stallone and Schwarzenegger's films from the time too.

Man there are a lot of good ones that I used to catch on TV all the time.. I probably wasn't old enough to remember actually *watching* these in the 80s, but.......

- Back to the Future... probably my favorite move of all TIME
- Top Gun... No mention of this yet??? haha
- Ferris Buellers Day Off... WOW did I watch this movie a lot when I was young.
- Red Dawn .. the original obviously - Charlie Sheen, Patrick Swayze... I don't know if I will ever watch the one recently released.
- Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure... Excellent!
- Adventures in Babysitting.. check this one out, it is quite good. biggrin.gif
- The Breakfast Club
- Scarface
- Bloodsport... Jean Claude van Damme
- The Wizard.. gotta love a movie based around video games and SM3
- Maximum Overdrive... HAH almost forgot about this one... where machines come alive.
- Rambo: First Blood
- Fast Time at Ridgemont High... I never watched this until about 2 years ago. Pretty good stuff.

I'll probably kick myself for forgetting some hah.
