Hi q ball....i can't remember if it's 80's or 70's, but the original Whicker Man is my fave film.

Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?
Later. Let's play Global Thermonuclear War.
Fine.

This thread wouldn't be complete without The Breakfast Club!




I picked this clip cos it features the nerdy, freaky, uber-sexy Ally Sheedy! sigh

I'm going to go with St. Elmo's Fire. Also, I'm going to say Little Monsters as a backup to that. I'm not sure if it was a cult film, but it was a goody nonetheless.

the wicker man was 70's. what a film though it has to be the best ending ever. the remake was total rubbish as are all remakes.

my film for 80's though is the terminator.

Totaly agree, the reaction to the Whicker Man at the end by Nicholas Cage just doesn't compare to Edward Woodwards.

The 80s? In random order, from lesser known to blockbusters - all of these are cult in their own way.
2 Christmas movies from this decade stand the test of time. Some of these may have been "blockbusters" but they created a whole "cult experience" in the dialog, the hairstyles, the one liners, and even recruiting numbers for a particular branch of service. Not to mention soundtracks. Movies you should have in your 80s collection.

Cult:
* Repo man - totally underated. Let's go get sushi and not pay.
* Night of the Comet
The Lost Boys
Air Plane
* Blade Runner

Mainstream 80s era from hair styles to vibe:
* 48 hours
Lethal Weapon
Top Gun
Terminator
Ghostbusters
Caddyshack

Special catagory:
Raiders of the Lost Ark
A Christmas Story
Christmas Vacation

Takes you back doesn't it? Some of them age better then others. Some I don't particularly like but they take me back. (* denotes the movies I like most)

I think the John Carpenter movies dominated personally, they live, escape from la, big trouble in little china and they live where just fantastic era cult movies that still hold up today. Robocop was a bit more mainstream but has a massive cult following still along with return of the living dead 1 and 2.

Ferris Beuller's Day Off - (9 times...)
Big Trouble in Little China - (Jack Burton....me)

Ghostbusters - (Are you a God?)
Spaceballs - (Only one man would dare give me the Raspberry....Lone Star!)
Star Wars (of course) - (Who's scruffy lookin?)
Back to the Future - (Great Scott!)
E.T. - (Be...Good...)
Fast Times at Ridgemont High - (Whoa, Mr. Hand)
Breakfast Club - (Aly Sheedy making snow)
Pretty in Pink - (AMH holding up the panties)
Weird Science - (What would you two little maniacs like to do first?)
Poltergeist - (They're here...)
Airplane - (Stop calling me Shirley)
Superman - (You've got me? Who's got you?)
