Am I the only one that thought, "Hm. You don't see the future perfect used that often."?





I guess so.

Carry on.

What about "Highlander"? There can be only one.

The Breakfast Club for teen movies.

Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th for Horror.

Lethal Weapon, Die Hard for Cop/action movies.

Top Gun,
Rambo for War type action movies.

Legend, Neverending Story for Fantasy movies.

Lost Boys for those Vampy lovers.

Which one? The first one? That one was ok, but the second one was just over the top, and the third one wasn't even serious anymore. Ok, they're entertaining, but still not as good as the first one.

the war-film defining rambo was definitely the second one, this is where the de facto rambo-figure was born (bare chest, holding a huge machine gun in one hand etc.). the first one actually was trying to be a serious, even psychological movie (not that it succeeded, but it tried).

an since we're talking stallone already, definitely the whole series of rocky sequels, especially the mr.t and dolph lundgren ones.

Of the two that were offered for choice, War Games. Here's why:

1. Matthew Broderick. He's the epitome of 1980s movie goodness. See Ferris Bueller's Day Off if you don't believe me.

2. The WOPR, or War Operation Plan Response. A giant computer the size of a minivan, which is so 80s it's sick. That and they deliberately picked an achronym for its name which relates to Burger King.

3. Dabney Coleman. He played assholes in so many good 80s movies. Nine to Five, Cloak and Dagger, Modern Problems, and Dragnet are among his films.

4. Video games! Duh! It was the dawn of a new era of entertainment which has since grown into a multi-billion dollar industry.

5. Ally Sheedy. She was in The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire, and Short Circuit after this one, before she went insane. She was one of those plain 80s movie chicks who nonetheless exuded sexuality. Many of my friends had a crush on her back in the day.

6. Nuclear war. The Cold War was still in full swing then. Those of you born after the Iron Curtain fell can never understand the constant fear of complete and utter worldwide annihilation that the nuclear arms race fostered in young minds during the latter parts of the 20th century. This movie fed on that idea and granted levity to it.

The question wasn't "what's your favorite 80s movie?" The question was which of those two choices most defines 80s cinema. While I liked The Goonies when it came out, it was really just a fantasy adventure for kids. It had a good cast and nice production values, and Steven Spielberg is one of the 80s most revered directors, but War Games really defines 80s cinema for me, if I have to pick from those two.

It's Robot Jox. That movie was pretty cool...

Anyhoo, but I do agree with all the stuff Smiley said.

heheheh Aramor thanks for the correction.
Robot Jox.it reminds me of The Battletech Universe, which includes Mech Commander/Mechwarrior games.with all that huge robotic war machines.
(refer to the intro of Mechwarrior 3) it would do nicely as the intro to robot jox the remake. Laughing

nicely done Smiley!! (ive never seen War Games) i think i better scout the net for rentals and such (if its still around).

TRON all the way, man. All the way. That was a magnificent movie. The Goonies was another fantastic movie, but Tron was the best.

Yes, but does it define what the 80's cinema was all about?

Light shows, primitive cgi, and techno, techno, techno?

Yup.

And no I never saw Tron myself ergo I don't know if it was techno or something 2001-ish.

What about Lethal Weapon?

TRON did kick ass. I can't say it defined 80s cinema though, because it came out in 1980, at the beginning of a long decade. It was the first movie to make such extensive use of early CGI, so it ranks among geekdom's favorites.

True, true.But it kicked the 80's ass so much it forgot to take names.
