    Of the films on that list, I had "Raiders of the Lost Ark" no.1, followed by "Glory."
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    My probable #2 isn't on the list: The Terminator.

    Damn I love that movie.

    The whole trilogy really.

    I can't believe The Big Chill, Wall Street, and Moonstruck are on the list. Granted, I was a kid, but I found those movies so dull I couldn't sit through them. Empire Strikes Back, Amadeus, Ghandi, The Princess Bride, Full Metal Jacket, Das Boot, Spinal Tap, and The Last Emperor are better than half the movies on the list and I would put them as favorites before quite a few of those movies.

    One of the seminal movies of the 1980s!

    I don't know. The whole "Greed is good" bit just wore thin after about five minutes for me. I thought Trading Places was a much better film about stock brokers. There are some movies that people talk about being great from that era that I just never got. The Big Chill, Wall Street, On Golden Pond, Moonstruck, none of those did it for me. I actually enjoyed Victory more than any of those films. But then again, not many people like The Fifth Element and I thought that was pretty good too. But the movies I listed were pretty darn good '80s films. I know a lot of people would put Empire Strikes Back or Full Metal Jacket at the top of that list.

    Michael Douglas as Gordan Gekko is one of my all-time favorite cinematic villains... ah well, to each his own, I suppose.

    I loved The Fifth Element, btw. Especially Chris Tucker as Ruby Rod.

    I have to agree with you here...he did a great job in this film. I actually like this movie a whole whole lot.

    I kind of have a thing for Michael Douglas pre-face crumpling. I've taken a good bit of crap for this over the years.

    Besides the Princess Bride, that's the only movie mentioned on this thread that I've seen though
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I'm kind of stunned that "Say Anything" isn't there. I'd have to take "Scarface" or "The Breakfast Club" as my number one from what they have listed. "Ghostbusters" is up there too.
    Because the plain people are able to speak and understand, and even, in many cases, to read and write, it is assumed that they have ideas in their heads, and an appetite for more. This assumption is a folly.
