I think the music is okay but I can't understand why this movie has any appeal outside of that.

23. 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984)
Scared the hell out of me, but not in the way I'm sure it was intended. They may have made a valid effort to repeat the "2001" Kubrick masterpiece; but it didn't come close.

14. The Cotton Club (1984)
Not Coppola's best but a nicely made period piece for sure, and Diane Lane is sexy as hell.

11. Splash (1984)
If the internet was around, Google would have had a huge jump in mermaid porn searches after the release of this film.

Great 80s flare in a film that sounds dumb but pulls off its intentions wonderfully.
