Well, first I've thought those three movies are a trilogy. Melly told me that just the second and the third belong together.
The first movie is about a hyper-modern bus that goes crazy.
The second and the third are about a pilot who tends to be too nervously in critical moments, but he has to save an airplane after the crew died of poisoned food and save a spaceship because its computer went mad.
The plane- and the spaceship-movie are from the same people who brought Scary Movie to you.

Ah.  That would be Airplane! and Airplane II: The Sequel.  I had originally thought that those two sounded like the Airplane movies, but I got confused because I thought that you were talking about a trilogy of movies.  I still don't know what the one with the bus is, though.

I knew David A and I had similar tastes! I put in in my top five, which usually gets me some odd looks but I watch movies for entertainment damnit,and that movie rocked!

Are the Raiders of the Lost Ark movies 80s era? I really liked those even though the second was a bit obscure. Let's make that a LOT obscure; I never could get worked up over those 'shankara stones' or whatever the heck they were. Let's see,Nazi stomping death in a box or... stones. Well Indy must have known there were diamonds inside but still...

Yeah, Temple of Doom is a good movie, but it just doesn't compare to the other two in the series.

1985 cult classic:

"Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon"

Leroy or Bruce Leroy was a true underdog.

Sho'nuff was a memorable villain.

This movie spoke 80's.

Yes, "Airplane" and "Airplane 2".
The bus-movie is "The Big Bus" and I've just seen that it doesn't belongs in this thread since it's from the 70s.

Heathers. Christian Slater doing a Jack Nicholson... Classic fashion and teen suicide to an 80s beat.

One of my favourite movies of all decades.

Raging Bull, Scarface, Spinal Tap, Full Metal Jacket have all been mentioned but they are some of my favourite ever. I dont think anyone listed Cape Fear, the remake with Robert DeNiro, I liked that, mainly cos DeNiro was in it. The man is just brilliant.

I like The Karate Kid.  I just saw it and it reminded me of how much I liked it.  I don't much for the sequels, but I will watch them if there is nothing else on.

1987 - "Allen Quartermain And The Lost City Of Gold"

Richard Chamberlain. Still can't belive he was gay and got away with that role.

Spinal Tap was great. So many memorable music jokes in it. "Dude, Stonehenge was like in danger of being crushed by dwarfs" just brilliant.

I also liked most of the movies from Bartman's list above.

Its probably a controversial movie now (people who love a certain Michael Moore will give it a chance, people who hate him might not).  But its really a great film.

I always thought "Ferris Buellar's Day Off" (I just killed that title with the spelling I'm sure of that) was a cool movie.

I forgot Bill & Ted's Exellent Adventure.
I would add the Bogus Adventure, but i'm pretty sure that was around 91 or 92.

*Bump*

I always thought the original Terminator movie was a pretty cool 80's movie... I know it's pretty campy now, but it is still a pretty cool movie.

Just recently saw Big Trouble in Little China and  will now rank it as one of my all time favorite 80's movies (Lo Pan's death alone was worth the entire rental fee).

That as good a reason as any to like a movie, but I don't remember a nude scene, I remember a panty shot.  Which is cool too, but it's no nude scene.

Ohhh yeaaah baby! I love that movie.
Other 80's movies:
I should hardly have to mention "Blade Runner" and "Aliens" ("Game over man, game over!" ). "Terminator" was great, too.
"Better Off Dead" started my unhealthy crush on John Cusack.
I liked "Ghostbusters 2" only for "Viggo, the scourge of Moldavia". I still shout that out when I'm drunk sometimes.
I liked a lot of the John Hughes flicks except for the endings. The end of "Pretty in Pink", where Molly Ringwald ditches John Cryer at the prom has always made me terribly sad. That bitch. James Spader was always the super-hot rich bastard. I liked him in that and "Less Than Zero". I also hated how they had to make Ally Sheedy into a clone at the end of "The Breakfast Club". I was always kind of like her in high school: quiet, dandruffy, wearing black all the time (I still do that).

John Cusack is pretty cute. I saw Americans Sweetheart on TV recently, he is in it.

Anyway I would like to add Aliens to my list of the 80s best movies. I believe all the Alien movie series are well made. I just did not watch it earlier cos I am never fond of horror/scary movies. However one night my hubby asked me to watched it together with him cos he bought the directors' edition a year ago. For some reason I said yes, I was scared during the viewing of the movie, but nevertheless I enjoyed it, and it is really well made. I see why the Alien series became a box office hit from the 1970s to the 1990s.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
The Terminator
Transformers the movie

Ech, I hate those romantic movies. John Cusack was better when he played the loser. I like losers. He's pretty hot in "Grosse Pointe Blank", too. I'm impressed by men who can kill with a plastic pen.
