I go back & forth between this and Apocalypse Now as to which is my favorite Vietnam movie. Both are equally perfect from start to finish, with memorable/unforgettable scenes, performances, characters, and soundtracks. R. Lee Ermey's drill sergeant may be one of the most well-known characters in film history, but I count Private Joker among my personal favorites largely for the views on war he represents & what his character brings to the film (see also Yossarian of Catch-22).

To those who claim Nicolas Cage can't act and/or makes horrible films, I point you to this one as an example that he CAN act AND make good movies. Plus, it has one of the greatest chase scenes of all time.

All around one of my favorite films ever, and one of the best love stories ever committed to film. The book is also excellent.

Hellraiser (1987)


Easily my favorite 80s horror film, and possibly my all-time favorite horror movie (I go back & forth between it & Night of the Living Dead).

Sort of the anime version of Fantasia or an all-ages Heavy Metal.

Good looking list man!

I know most of Eddie Murphy's movies are crap nowadays but I still think that Raw was completely hilarious!

Angel Heart is incredible. Definitely up there with Full Metal Jacket for me.
