    Most of my favorites have been listed but there are few that are from the late 80's that haven't:
    Cocktail
    Gleaming the Cube (not very popular but it had Christian Slater in it)
    Shag (also not very popular but I'm a southern girl)

    I forgot about sex, lies & videotape. That's actually one of my favourite movies ever...and James Spader was pretty easy on the eyes in it, as well

    I had to find a somewhat "right" thread to post this in.

    For Christmas I got the Karate Kids series, with all of the movies including The Next Karate Kid. This was a special edition with commentaries and the like. I loved these movies when they came out and still loved them. The commentary on the first movie was done twenty years after it first came out and is hysterical.

    I still watch any of the Karate Kid movies when they come on...and I'm all the time doing the "Wipe off, wipe on" hand motions or when I'm cutting up with my son I'll do the "bird crane kick motion" that Ralph Macchio used in the tournament he won!! My son always laughs hysterically at me because I'm sure my 40 year old overweight body looks slightly odd doing that motion!!!

    Hey, speaking of Ralph Macchio...he would be a good one to bring on DWTS or maybe even The Surreal Life...I'd love to see him again!!!

    No doubt...and I still think he is a cutie. Since the documentaries on there are only a couple of years old I don't think his appearance will have changed since those were shot.

    80's' films, or films of the 80's? Not altogether the same beast. Most of the ones that come to mind are already mentioned, here's a figurative few well done movies from that decade, a few of them riding the cusp (1980)

    After Hours
    Used Cars
    Tender Mercies
    The Verdict
    Predator
    Absence of Malice
    Silverado
    Nine to Five
    The Blues Brothers
    Places in the Heart
    Urban Cowboy
    The Coca-Cola Kid
    Taps
    Witness
    The Killing Fields
    Wargames
    Something Wild
    The War of the Roses

    My personal top five from the eighties:

    Near Dark (best vampire movie ever)
    Local Hero
    Return of the Secausus 7
    Don's Party (okay, it was actually filmed in the seventies, but it didn't make it to my city until some time in the early eighties)
    Breakfast Club (best teen cheese ever)
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.
