It's name a great 80s movie, not just name some 80s movies.

Great Movies IMO 

I personally like them all, but IMO Another 48 Hrs (1990 so doesn't qualify) and Beverly Hills Cop II are better.

Rocky III is my pick for the quintessential 80's movie. It has everything that summed up the 80's:

-Sylvester Stallone
-Big Summer "Popcorn Movie" Sequel
-Hulk Hogan
-Mr. T
-"Eye of the Tiger"
-A "shock" character death (Mickey)

You can't do the 80's without Rocky III and you can't do Rocky III without the 80's. On top of that, it's actually a pretty fun movie.



I also remember liking "The Untouchables" when it came out. I watched it a few years ago and still found it engaging. A lot of folks see "Kevin Costner" listed and want to look away.

DeNiro and the baseball bat is still a favorite of mine. It also kinda' rejuvenated Sean Connery's career and has a straight-up homage to critical favorite "Battleship Potemkin".


"Predator" gets labeled as a cheesy macho action flick, but the first movie (with Arnold and Jesse) is well done. The important element is that the audience sees as much of the mysterious Predator foe as the cast does. First time I saw it, I remember thinking: "what the hell is that?" The subsequent Predator films missed that point by having no secrecy or suspense.


"Full Metal Jacket" has been mentioned, but I'll say that it's still a very gripping and intense movie. Plus, 2 Live Crew wouldn't have broken out if not for the movie's soundbytes. Our world is a better place, now.

I admit it doesn't hold up much today, but Less Than Zero was great in 1987. I literally watched that movie on the night that a childhood friend of mine had died earlier in the day. Pretty emotional.

Don't think anyone mentioned these gems:
Karate Kid
Karate Kid III. Cheesy as fuck, but it was entertaining
An Officer and a Gentleman
About Last Night
Dragnet- This may have been one of my all time favorite spoofs.

Okay, I'm an 80's guy, and I saw Full Metal Jacket for first time a couple of days ago. I thought both parts of the movie were pretty good.

Karate Kid III is one of my guilty pleasures.  The character of Terry Silver should have had a movie in which he was the protagonist.

It wasn't Oscar worthy by any means but I thought 3 O'Clock High was a ridiculously fun movie.
