Great question! Hmm... Sean Connery... Mmmaybe..Bit of a tangent, but which actor sums up the 80's the best?
Surely its Arnie! His film category in the 80's is insane how many classic action films he was in!
Honourable mention to Bill Paxton, been in ever Best franchise of the 80's terminator, aliens, predator ( grant he was in the sequel in the 90's, but still, what a resume)
I'm gonna go with:
Ferris Buellers Day Off
Honorable mention to The Thing, Revenge of the Nerds and The Breakfast Club.
He did a few films in the 80s like The Untouchables, In The Name of the Rose, Indiana Jones 3, for me they were some of my most watched~
I'd add Kurt Russel to that list, but Arnie's probably number 1Sure no doubt, to you personally,but when u say 80's film stars, connary wouldn't even register to alot of people
Big hitters gotta be arnie, sly, willis, maybe van damme? Then people like swayze, cruise maybe
Or Hackman? Maybe 70s for Hackman, 90s id say De Niro or Pacino
My fav scene. It's not even supposed to be funny, but it kind of is. But also serious.Those are some good shouts. The Breakfast Club is one of my rewatched movies for sure. Love the dynamic between the characters. John Hughes was a genius when it came to that. Ferris Bueller is also great, pretty deep movie underneath it all. He was great at doing comedy, but at the same time having these really deep & moving moments in his films. This part is great in Breakfast Club:
Very thoughtful of you! I've seen it once, i definitely enjoyed it but i think i came to it a bit late in my life and it failed to delight me like it might have others. The goonies suffered the same fate, for me. Great movie, but i didn't see it until i was around 30, so i didn't have a kid's imagination up for the capturing.I was expecting better performance from Ghostbusters and The Terminator. I was sure one of the two would be in the Top 5. Maybe in the Star Wars spot.
Wasn't expecting Aliens to be No1 also. It's a great film but i was expecting people who prefer the first movie to not give it many votes (or at all).
Who Framed Roger Rabbit is my favorite movie of all time. But i was expecting the few votes. It was a "one hit wonder" and then nothing much came out of it. Roger didn't even become a popular cartoon character himself. So it's not the kind of movie that gets talked about as much as the others. Especially since movies like Alien, Star Wars, Predator, Back to the Future, etc, got sequels or are still active and became big franchises, we even had a new Blade Runner movie recently. Roger is the only one of the bunch that never got a single sequel.
So That's why i posted it in bold to make it visible, since nobody mentioned it before my post, i figured people just don't remember it.
