The Terminator
The Terminator has been one of those movies that I've been a fan of since the 90's, and it seems like with age, you end up loving it even more. With Arnold Schwarzenegger's movies, I consider this among his absolute best, second only to the mighty Total Recall.      It's also interesting to note that if you ask around a lot of Terminator fans, most will tell you …

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
This movie was a favorite of mine during my childhood and even after watching it for the first time in ten years, it's just as great as I remembered it to be.  One of the best family films of the 80's and one of the landmark films of American cinema, E.T. combined strong special effects with a brilliant soundtrack and believable characters.  Like any good movie, it does a good job …

*** out of ****    There are a handful of films that I admire and enjoy for their unique, groundbreaking visual style alone and Steven Lisberger's "Tron" is just one of them. Critically, it is - honest to God - just not a very good film. It's plot is simplistic and fails to match the amount of imagination put into creating the world that it inhabits, the characters aren't very …

Repo Man
***1/2 out of ****    "The life of a repo man is always intense" says Harry Dean Stanton as Bud in one of the most prolific scenes from the Alex Cox cult favorite "Repo Man". The film, which is not really about Bud but more-so about the life and career of a kid that he brings into the trade of repossessing stolen cars, jumps from one whacky idea to another; eventually bordering …

Another Arnie 80's action cheese fest, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Lots of over-the-top action, cheesy one-liners, overblown music scores, all so much fun to be had watching this. Simply put, if you love 80's action movies and Arnold Schwarzenegger, this is popcorn action heaven.

A Nightmare on Elm Street
**** out of ****     Back in the day, when people like Wes Craven and John Carpenter could still make pretty good films, good ol' Wes made stuff like "The Last House on the Left" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street". With the latter, he was able to pull elements from our deepest nightmares and edit them for added fright and stylistic value. I kind of have to admire that; his film was …

* out of ****     "Prom Night" is derivative, boring, bland, ridiculous, stupid, and the worst "classic" slasher/horror film I've seen since "My Bloody Valentine". The film offers no surprises, no suspense, and no substance. It isn't scary, there's nothing worth anticipating, and all-in-all, it just plain sucks. Why it has garnered a semi-large cult following, I shall never know. …

At first I thought the distance between ‘Tron' and ‘Tron Legacy' may have been in style and substance. After all ‘Tron' at its inception was an organic movie conception from the popular arcade games filling bars and shake shops during the late seventies and early eighties. I wrote a review panning ‘Tron Legacy' even after seeing the impressive visual advancements and seeing it with 3-D glasses at …

*** out of ****     I have a lot of trouble accessing certain classic "B-Movie" flicks, especially ones within the horror genre. Maybe this is because I'm stubborn and need a narrative to call a film good, or maybe this is because I sincerely don't like the films. I don't know, and I never will. But I do know that funny, well-crafted B-movies can be made, and the newest entry to …

It's horrifying, all right - that this shoddy, wholly worthless slasher flick (starring numerous painfully overripe "teens") has a small cult fan base. Without Leslie Nielsen or Jamie Lee Curtis in its cast, this would have surely been lost and long forgotten by now.

As most children of the '80s did, I used to dance around my bedroom singing Michael Jackson and Debbie Gibson songs into my hairbrush. At the top of my "setlist" was a little song called "I Think We're Alone Now." If you're a product of the '80s, there's a good chance that was blaring on your walkman all the time, too. Am I right? The girl behind one of the …

Turner and Hooch
There are three film stars who shine brightly in the pantheon of those whose lives were tragically cut short just at the cusp of iconic movie greatness...James Dean, Heath Ledger and Sal Mineo. Yet there is a fourth who by rights should join them. This actor made but one film, yet his ability to project bravery, loyalty, compassion and the boisterous joy of living through his acting was, many believe, …

Beverly Hills Cop II
Remember how awesome the first Beverly HIlls Cop movie was?  Young tough cop from dirty Detroit comes to posh Beverly Hills and teaches the cops and stiffs some common sense and uses his street smarts and some luck to save the day.  It was funny, smart and had an edge to it.  It was one of the biggest hits of the 80s and, natch, a sequel was made which ramped up so much and didn't …

Breakfast Club
This movie was a lot better than I thought it would be. I know it was made by John Hughes, mastermind behind Pretty in Pink and Ferris Bueller's day off, but this seemed just like a normal cliched teen movie. However, this was pretty good, taking the title of John Hughes' second best film and one of the best teen movies ever made. What I like about John Hughes is that he shows that films …

**1.2 out of ****      Aside from the fact that it's all style and no substance, "The Lost Boys" still services well as a decent vampire flick. It's better than most vampire films set in the modern setting, and certainly surpasses one's typical expectations out of a teen vampire flick. The biggest problem here is the story, which could have served as the substance. …

Cheers.  What needs to be said?  It's one of the greatest shows ever made.       Part "work-com" and growing more into a traditional "sitcom" later on with a great ensemble cast.  Cheers was about the misadventures at a bar in Boston MA.  Run by former baseball pitcher turned booze jockey Sam "Mayday" Malone, a recovering …

I have no specific reason, but I used to love this movie. I don't want to watch it now because I prefer to preserve it in my memory. I think the 80s could be pretty much summed up by just the cover image alone.

The original Terminator.  The cold blooded killer from the future.  You could give him a date with Brazilian and Swedish supermodels, give him an Aston Martin full of gold Krugerrand, promise Peace in the Middle East or give him a whole Caribbean island to himself, and it wouldn't matter.  He has one job, he will find you and he will kill you.      In the near …
