"Directa your feetsa to Daddy Green's Pizza"

The Glow... Sho'Nuff... Vanity... The Last Dragon gets a vote from me.

Though I enjoy "The Last Dragon", my vote definitely goes to "Coming To America". Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall were impressive in multiple roles and the cameo of "Trading Places" 's Randolph and Mortimer Duke as street bums was genius.

Also, fun to see ER's Eriq La Salle as Murphy's rival for Lisa .. Daryl Jenks.

Coming to America! it's one of my favorites.

"Sexual Chocolate you all Sexual Chocolate.....clap......clap"

I love Eddie Murphy in this one.....he played the "naive looking for love Prince" haha and every joke that could come off of that premise worked.

"Just let your Soul Glo......."

Soul....Glow lol
I really can't pick either one they were really kind of different i think. but I do have to say that was really the one and only time I liked Eddie in dual roles. He did't make it the focus of the movie. it was a great movie.

Last dragon was a great campy action kung fu flick with a bit of cheese. They really put the right amount of 80's people love for martial arts. hehe.
Who's the master

I got to see Last Dragon for the first time ever yesterday.........what a hidden little gem!

I would have assumed it was all karate chops and such..........but no no no.

Leroy's little brother....haha The villains and those stupid music videos...haha reminded me a little of Julie Brown totally....

Lady Laura and all her neon dance sequences....I still have DeBarge in my head today.

Campy and cheesy but really entertaining weird I missed this one all these years.

My vote is still for Coming to America.....for sentimental reasons and the fact I quote it all the time but I can see how you brought both up.
