John Cusack has had quite the career, so let's honor his run where it all began....the 80's. So everyone pick your TWO Cusack favs from the 80's.

Choices:

Class (1983)
Sixteen Candles (1984)
Grandview, USA (1984)
The Sure Thing (1985)
Better Off Dead (1985)
The Journey of Natty Gann (1985)
Stand By Me (1986)
One Crazy Summer (1986)
Hot Pursuit (1987)
Broadcast News (1987)
Eight Men Out (1988)
Tapeheads (1988)
Elvis Stories (1989)
Say Anything (1989)
Fat Man and the Little Boy (1989)

We did this once before.. but with all the new Rewinders I thought it would be interesting to do it again.

The Sure Thing - A masterpiece!

Class - Even though he's got only a tiny role in it, this movie made me a Cusack fan for life.

Cusack for president!

logan5 .. nice analysis .. but you are offically disqualified! Though Meredith Salenger says thanks for "The Journey of Natty Gann" almost vote despite the heartburn you inflicted for bumping Secret Admirer's "Dance A Little Pain" comment.

80'sRocked .. how did two become three? .. 220, 221..whatever it takes?

joking aside.. if I was strictly just picking my favorite movie from the list it would undoubtly be "Sixteen Candles", but since John Cusack spent most of the movie riding around in a trunk of a car .. that won't work.

So..

I would choose "Say Anything" as my favorite Cusack performance followed by the 'TKO stole my thunder' pick of "Class".

With that said.. it appears "Better Off Dead" is showing up the most to this point.

Out of the choices given..i'd say my favs would be The Sure Thing & Stand by Me.

Though I'm not much of a fan of Cusacks 80's films..my favorites of his would all be post 80's.

Films like:

High Fidelity
Pushing Tin
Cradle will Rock
Grosse Pointe Blank

those would be my favorite among the Cusack collection.

Ummmmm....looks like I'd better find and watch "Better Off Dead" (I've never seen this one). That being sai, I'd certainly have to go with Say Anything and The Sure Thing...

I too prefer the latter day Cusack movies (1997-00) with Grosse Pointe Blank (honorary 80s, surely) as my all time favourite Cusack flick.

From the 80s: Say Anything and Tapeheads.

I place 'Better off Dead' at # 2 on the list of 'Most well liked 80's movies [now] people hadn't seen prior to the internet'. 'Valley Girl' is # 1.

16 Candles-Black and white would just capture the moment........
Better Off Dead

------------------------

Tapeheads was great-working on 'spec' and the cemetery video. Liked his role in Stand By Me too.

I just watched The Sure Thing........it doesn't rank up on the top of Cusacks movies for me....but it's such a good movie. I actually only saw it in the last 10 years...not in the 80's.

So cute when Allison finally realizes she likes Gib and her wall breaks down....they are lying in bed and she wakes to find he's craddling her.....Gib jumps up "I didn't try anything....i'll just go on the veranda for a minute" and waves through the window.......love it!

Well my FAVORITES would be 16 CANDLES and STAND BY ME- but that has not much to do with him because he has very small roles in those.

When Im in the mood to "Watch John Cusack movies" I wacth BETTER OFF DEAD and THE SURE THING.
