Summer School (1987)
Stehako's rating:
Void of most of the things that worked in the first.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 480 Average listal rating (282 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.3
Likely the worst Disney Animation movie made. The lowest point in their history. Lucky for us, they got their shit together...
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 164 Average listal rating (78 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.6
September (1987)
A Woody Allen dud. Is presented like a very long one act play. Filled with annoying characters.
Still, I can't help deny his often likable penchant for dialogue.

Radio Days (1987)
A likely forgettable Woody Allen film.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 429 Average listal rating (297 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.9
A classic, low-brow 80s adventure basically only kids will like.

Over the Top (1987)

The first Ernest movie I ever saw could still be the best

Stakeout (1987)
Stehako's rating:

Dirty Dancing (1987)
A classic for many a women; but alas I am a man.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 570 Average listal rating (379 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7
Possibly the worst 007 film.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 492 Average listal rating (282 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.7
Withnail & I (1987)
Scottish absurdity at its finest.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 72 Average listal rating (26 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.4
Street Smart (1987)
Morgan Freeman is the only thing memorable about this movie and it's very memorable
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 288 Average listal rating (146 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.5
Depressing but so rightfully moody in that 80s sort of way.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 835 Average listal rating (559 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.3
Angel Heart (1987)
A noir detective story that mixes 1980s production with 1950s setting quite nicely. Rourke is entertaining and De Niro makes his few scenes memorable.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 174 Average listal rating (85 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.3

People who added this item 470 Average listal rating (279 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7.1
Moonstruck (1988)
Snap out of it, people, Cher is not funny but this well-written romantic comedy at least gives her a chance at some quality acting.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 156 Average listal rating (95 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.2

People who added this item 1598 Average listal rating (1092 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.8
Evil Dead II (1987)
The sequel more ridiculous than the first and ultimately better.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1215 Average listal rating (741 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 6
Classic 80s comedy with three actors who helped define the era. It doesn't hold up one bit, but as long as you look at it through an 80s lens it can be entertaining.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2505 Average listal rating (1818 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 7.8
Predator (1987)
Get to da choppa!!

The Lost Boys (1987)
People are Strange

I loved the chipmunks as a kid and this was an epic adventure all right

People who added this item 181 Average listal rating (126 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 6.7
Not a hill Fats Domino would sing about.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 501 Average listal rating (336 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8
Innerspace (1987)
Weird and silly but somehow watchable without explanation
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 330 Average listal rating (193 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.1
Classic Hughes script with 80s cliches abound.

People who added this item 1077 Average listal rating (745 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.7
"I'll be back" - The first time of many Arnold self-imitation quotes.
I finally got to watching this 80s action classic. And wow, is it an 80s movie! It's so bad and yet so good. Definitely a guilty pleasure. Schwarzenegger was so likable back then.
Stehako's rating:
Stewart is one of my all-time favorites, as an actor and human. This documentary, hosted and narrated by Johnny Carson, does a very fine job of telling his story.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 85 Average listal rating (55 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 8.1
A movie that will always put me in the Christmas spirit. It brings not only The Muppets together, but their friends from Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock!

Ishtar (1987)
Possibly the most misunderstood and unfairly panned movie of all time. Honestly, give it a shot, you might be surprised.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 345 Average listal rating (240 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6
Dragnet (1987)
Hanks and Aykroyd make a fun team in this decent 80s cop comedy.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2643 Average listal rating (1778 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.5
RoboCop (1987)
Outrageous and addicting as a kid.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 929 Average listal rating (546 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.9
Glen Close plays crazy pretty well.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1070 Average listal rating (585 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.7
A true epic, showing the long development of a country i feel I still know little about.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 399 Average listal rating (257 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.6
Roxanne (1987)
Cerano would be envious of Martin's version.
