People who added this item 88 Average listal rating (63 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.3
Bronson delivers his usual bad-ass-yet-wooden performance. It's like Death Wish but not nearly as good and too much male nudity.

Psycho II (1983)
Doesn't come close to the genius of the first but it actually delivers and is respectable for completely different reasons.

Yentl (1983) (1984)
A rare musical from the 80s, but it doesn't at all feel like an 80s movie. Her voice is great when singing, when speaking it's grating.

Flashdance (1983)
While it is an iconic 80s film it's not exactly my kind of entertainment. I will admit to appreciating some of the techniques more than I thought I would.

The Outsiders (1983)
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 415 Average listal rating (286 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.1
I loved this version as a kid, right up there with Mr. Magoo's version and at least competes with the Muppets' version

Gorky Park (1983)


The whole time I'm wondering, is William Hurt trying to have a Russian accent? It's a pretty good story with a fine ending. The Joanna Pacula is very likable and Lee Marvin is perfectly cast as "The American"
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 674 Average listal rating (421 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 6.2
A strange entry into the 007 series. Connery comes back after 12 years for a less-than-stellar bond, Kirshner comes off of directing the best Star Wars film and is less than stellar, there is no typical intro and the theme song is less than stellar. If fact, nothing is stellar. But hey, it's still fun entertainment, perhaps a little silly, but entertaining.

Zelig (1983)
While the technique of having Allen spliced in with famous people in actual archive footage (11 years before 'Forrest Gump') the content and character was just not interesting enough to compare to how 'Forrest Gump' masterfully did.

Videodrome (1983)
So strange and weird, yet intoxicating. Croneneberg had a hell of a year with this and The Dead Zone

Strange Brew (1983)
Strange indeed; but also delightful low brow northern humor

The Dead Zone (1983)
Walken is amazing in this well-made early film of Cronenberg.

Fantastic writing in this surprisingly good ensemble cast.
Stehako's rating:

Story telling through quick scenes and wonderful music (I'm not a fan of country, but it really worked in this film.)

Several hilarious vignettes on life, as told by the best comedy troupe ever (dammit, I wish they did more films!)

Murphy plays the best cripple bum ever and proves he is the future king of comedy.

Scorsese and De Niro are triumphant again in this drama about a comedian who isn't a comedian, only in his fantasies... or in crime.
Stehako's rating:

A great ensemble in this several part journey into the beginnings and heights of the USA's space adventures

The World is Yours.

Vacation (1983)


The Griswolds are probably my favorite family ever on film, even more than the Corleones

Ewoks, Jabba, and metal bra, the end of one of the greatest trilogies.
