From your two lists, guys, I would vote for "Halloween 3," "Year of the Dragon," and "Road House" as movies deserving of more respect.

Halloween 3, Howard the Duck, and Year of the Dragon get my votes. How about Repo Man? Love or hate with alot of movies.

Howard should get more airtime, but probably not more respect.

Who's That Girl is OK, but nothing more than that.

None of the rest would make my list, which would include:

The Philadelphia Experiment
Willow
The Lonely Guy

I like Repo Man, The Philadelphia Experiment, and The Lonely Guy. Willow, not so much.

howard was awesome. nightmare 2 is great but it gets misinterpeted as something else, ishtar is really funny, and i liked the lonely guy, steve martin and charles grodin were funny in that one. i havent heard about any under appreciation for willow, outside of the lord of the rings nerds, havent watched the philadelphia ex yet, but i seen it was on the instant queue

I dunno about respect, but I still stand by Caddyshack 2. I know it is pathetic really but I still love it and quote it all the time.

The Lost Empire (1985), one of THE most entertaining movies of all time.

Here´s the sickeningly succesful The Lost Empire Rewind thread

My top choice would be Moving Violations; a quarter century later, it still holds up as a complete laugh riot. The same goes with Who's Harry Crumb, The Man with Two Brains, and Funny Farm, which, although not quite the among the seminal films of their stars are good examples of what made them superstars back in the day.

I wish I knew people other than my brother to bounce Caddyshack 2 quotes off. Don't get me wrong, I still say to people, "You must be Chandler", but I definitely get looked at as if I am a psycho. Although its all funny to me.

I actually remember seeing Nothing But Trouble when it first came out back when I was 10 and being utterly disappointed. Perhaps I need to watch this one fresh. Its been 20 years between viewings.

I liked Moving violations as a kid but now not so much. I love Funny Farm. My favourite quote from the movie would be "Queue the deer."
