Stand by me
Planes, Trains and Automobiles
The Great Outdoors
Ferris Buelers day off
The Karate Kid
And some more adult ones
Full Metal Jacket
The Lost Boys
There's some awesome work in there for sure. I never actually watched Platoon or Full Metal Jacket in the 80s, which was strange, because Tour Of
Duty was one of my favourite TV shows back then.
Lost Boys. Always a classic, pity they had to ruin it by making two modern day sequels...
I remember being totally freaked out by Robocop, the sheer amount of gore and violence was something I'd never really seen before then. And of
course, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Never loses it's touch.
This is what I mean about these kinds of movies, even now, if I haven't seen them for years, can still impress even 20+ years later.
Crocodile Dundee was always a point of contention for me, being an Aussie. The film made us look like a bunch of yobbos. No wonder the rest of the
world thinks we ride kangaroos to work...
