All right... enough of this love fest! let's bring on the hate [Smile]

What 80's movies, bores you, irks you, rubs you the wrong way... or just flat out chaps your nads...??

I'll go first....


Any movie with Tom Cruise, didn't like him then, and most def don't like him now (does anybody?)

FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF... I know it is almost blasphemy for an 80's movie fan to not like this movie, but I just don't dig it! John Hughes weakest, if you ask me!

DIRTY DANCING.... because... well, im a guy!

GHOSTBUSTERS... I know it's a classic, But I could just never get into it, for some reason!

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK... I love John C, I love Kurt R and Big trouble... is one of my favourite movies of all time. So why I don't like this movie is a bit of a mystery.... to myself as well!

Well, enough of mine for now, what are yours...??

Probably at the top of the list would be Mac and Me. Even at age 6 I knew they were simply copying E.T. with less heart or concern for characters. Not to mention shoving McDonald's down our throats--yikes. I consider it a blessing from God himself that we had to leave the theater early to go to a Christmas party. Probably a close second would be Deal of the Century. It's always hard to see the people you respect in the cinema most sinking to the bottom, and why Chev even considered this confusing and flat story that not even he can squeeze anything out of (indeed what he was thinking at all during his "Dark Age" between Caddyshack and the first Vacation is anyone's guess) is beyond me. The same logic applies to #3, Speed Zone(!). Trying to force the last cent out of the Cannonball Run series when it was pretty much dead to begin with is bad enough; you know it's even worse when Candy's presence does absolutely nothing for it at all, particularly when you don't give him anything to do but walk around and wave at the camera (to be fair, the script may well have been changed without his consent after he signed on, which had also been the case with Going Berserk, the only other of his 80s films he can't prop up).

I agree with all of your picks, bad movies all around!

I got another one....

KRULL... what, are you kidding me? This sleep inducing snoozefest is considered some sort of a fantasy classic? Im still not sure if this was a sci fi or fantasy flick, but to be fair... I don't think the people who made it, did either!

Dirty Dancing- I just never bought the hokey love story between Baby and Johnny and I'm a girl!

Karate Kid- I think it's predictable and boring. It must be a guy thing with this movie.

Caddyshack- I just don't see the humor. Must be a guy thing.

All of the Police Academy movies! What a waste of time.

Roadhouse. I don't mind a bad movie, but this is sooo bad!

Right there with you, on the POLICE ACADEMY flicks, daaamn those were bad!

CADDYSHACK is decent, but doesn't deserve its legendary status in my opinion!

And ROADHOUSE is just bad!

Um, definitely not, it's been my obsessively all time favourite film for 20 years [Razz]

As for my least fave, it has to be Blade Runner.

Oh yeah... FOOTLOOSE and FLASHDANCE, hated those too!

That tractor chicken scene in Footloose is so laughablely bad... set to the booming sound of Bonnie Tyler's I NEED A HERO, really trying to pump up exitement, and then they are like going 5 miles an hour.... it's so lame!

It actually reminds me of that scene in Austin Powers, where Austin is approaching that one guard in a steamroller, and the guy starts screaming and puts his hand out, even though the steam roller is like 50 feet away.... funny stuff!

i think i am right in line with most of you..

i do not like DIRTY DANCING, FLASHDANCE, & ST. ELMO'S FIRE either!

aruba, i definitely feel the same way about THE KARATE KID. it does seem to be a "guy" thing? i just don't care for it.

whoa, cindy.. DATE WITH AN ANGEL is great! you really didn't like it???

i disagree about GHOSTBUSTERS & FERRIS though,, i love those movies.

i'll think of more i am sure [Smile]

Not my "least favorite"...but certainly the most overrated 80's movie I ever saw: "Out Of Africa"!

How the [bleep] did this snoozefest win the "Best Picture" Academy Award of 1985?

Aww, I still have a real soft spot for it despite all it's flaws due to it being the first film I saw at the cinema [Smile]

Oh I just remembered Driving Miss Daisy, one of the most boring films I've ever seen.

Yeah [Smile] hey I've just been looking at all the oscar winners of the 80's and The Last Emporer is the only one I think is really excellent, a couple of the others are ok too like Platoon and Rain Man.

Which is why I think audiences should have some say--not total say, but a large degree of it to go along with the Academy and the critics--a pseudo Estates General if you will. After all, what the point giving it to films that fall completely off the scope 10 years later as if they were never made? We watch it, we should be able to vote as well.
