9ยฝ Weeks (1986)
Famous for its sex scenes... and that's about it
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 333 Average listal rating (213 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.3
A little bit better than the live-action Bay films, for a very small fraction of the budget... and it has Orson Welles.

Legend (1985)
Stehako's rating:

About as interesting as this solid cast can get.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 709 Average listal rating (482 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.7
Short Circuit (1986)
An 80's classic that doesn't hold up.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1048 Average listal rating (638 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.8
Written by John Hughes and loved by many women I expected this to be better; but it was a disappointment. I can't say it's bad, as there are enough nice moments and there is still the iconic John Hughes dialogue and characters. It's a good movie to see if you want to see an exaggerated example of the 80s in a film made in the 80s.

Hurt falls in love with the deaf and his performance is most def noteworthy

Scorsese says this is the best films of the decade. I certainly disagree but he adds a lot of validity.

Kurt Russel leads a second rate cast in this fun adventure into... Little China.

Because these characters and actors have nothing in common there is not much to enjoy here. But it's very difficult not to like Hanks in anything, even if it possibly his weakest film.

Possibly the best Star Trek, I was also big into orcas when I watched it.

Sid & Nancy (1986)
Oldman is wild and perfect in his debut lead.

The Hitcher (1986)
Is there anything more menacing than Rutger Hauer on the road?

The ice breaking scene is classic, but overall far less interesting than the first.

Nolte nails the homeless role and Dreyfuss pulls off irritated hilariously.

Crystal and Hines make a great team. Would have liked to have seen more from them.

Salvador (1986)
This Oliver Stone film flew under the radar, possibly because 'Platoon' was enough for people to stomach or because it's even more anti-U.S. government.

This has to be James Woods' best performance of his career and James Belushi is solid as well.
Stehako's rating:

Top Gun (1986)
An 80s classic that kind of takes you right into the danger zone.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2180 Average listal rating (1407 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.6
The Fly (1986)
Far different that the original, and far better, really.

Possibly the best musical to come out of the 80s...
