Void of most of the things that worked in the first.

Likely the worst Disney Animation movie made. The lowest point in their history. Lucky for us, they got their shit together...

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 458 Average listal rating (316 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.9
A classic, low-brow 80s adventure basically only kids will like.

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 610 Average listal rating (414 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.7
Possibly the worst 007 film.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 507 Average listal rating (292 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.5
Scottish absurdity at its finest.
Stehako's rating:

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 301 Average listal rating (155 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.5
Depressing but so rightfully moody in that 80s sort of way.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 876 Average listal rating (588 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.

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.

Evil Dead II (1987)
The sequel more ridiculous than the first and ultimately better.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1225 Average listal rating (749 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 6.1
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.

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

Innerspace (1987)
Weird and silly but somehow watchable without explanation
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 353 Average listal rating (211 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.1
Classic Hughes script with 80s cliches abound.

"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 3 Average listal rating (2 ratings) 8.5 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.

Predator (1987)



Director: John McTiernan
His 2nd movie
My 7th movie watched from the director


Wow, finally a movie that has been on my list for honestly twenty years, and here we are! It mostly lives up to the expectations. A lot of alpha male dialogue and action with all the characters getting killed off one-by-one.
It is a delight to see but also a sad reminder of how these types of movies no longer get any mainstream attention.
The one part that was actually kind of disappoint was "Get to the chopper!" as it's a hugely popular line from this movie, but in the scene it feels like just another line from Arnold. Doesn't actually stand out and not as intense as I expected.

Dragnet (1987)
Hanks and Aykroyd make a fun team in this decent 80s cop comedy.

Outrageous and addicting as a kid.

Glen Close plays crazy pretty well.

A true epic, showing the long development of a country i feel I still know little about.

Roxanne (1987)
Cerano would be envious of Martin's version.
