    Lightbulb the bests films from 80s & 90s

    what are for you the best movie of the decade?
    say one for 80s and other for 90s....and say why?


    for me...
    is most difficult to say for 80s,because there are few good films on 80s...
    but for 90s is simple:
    FIGHT CLUB....good story,photography,design,music,actors and a very good end!

    I sorta agree with Ebert's choices: Schindler's List and Fargo and Groundhog Day and Pulp Fiction for the nineties; My Neighbor Totoro, Say Anything, and Moonstruck for the eighties... I agree that all these movies are fantastic...

    Ah, the 80's. Hands down my favorite decade for movies, impossible to pick a favorite:

    Aliens
    Blade Runner
    Predator
    The Abyss
    Gremlins
    Empire Strikes Back
    Return of the Jedi
    Back to the Future trilogy
    Indiana Jones trilogy
    E.T.
    Ghostbusters
    The Goonies
    Ferris Beuler's Day Off
    Beetlejuice
    Die Hard 1 and 2

    Jesus... that's just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Some of the most influential and memorable movies in history came from the 80's, to call it a horrible decade, at least as far as movies are concerned, is pure blasphemy.

    The 90's had some fantastic films too... but nothing touches the 80's, imo. Of course I'm an 80's child so I might be a little biased.

    I'll add They Live, Heavy Metal and Akira Kurosawa's Dreams to the 80's. The 80's was a wonderful time, the 90's were horrible. A few decent 90's movies: Grosse Pointe Blank, The Professional, The Usual Suspects, Chasing Amy, The Matrix, Clerks, the Whole Nine Yards and Goodfellas.

    ^ I'd rank the '90s (decade for action and independent films) over the '80s (MTV generation--teen flicks) by a large gap... But my least favourite decades for films are probably the '70s (sci-fi decade) or '60s (new wave explosion)...

    the '90s (decade for action and independent films)
    I'll grant the indy films really took off in the 90's (especially with Kevin Smith and Robert Rodriguez leading the way with no-budget film making), but the 80s is where it's at for action if you ask me. Commando. No other decade could have produced it. The 80's action movies were just about big explosions, insane villians (who may or may not be involved in drug cartels), martial arts, more explosions, one liners, busty supporting females, and over the top silly ridiculous explosions. Things got too "edgy" and "hip" in the 90s. Dunno man, they had it and lost it.

    I definately agree. The 80's can never be topped as far as action movies go. I think it was a result of the time... just the general world view, the decade of excess, the Regan years, the beginning of the end of the cold war, etc.

    It's why 80's movies are so distinctly 80's, and the style of the movies made in that time can never be reproduced. The true action movie was born and died in the 80's.

    I dunno... I guess the '80s gave birth to the modern action films, I mean sure '80s got Rambo and Die Hard, but the nineties pretty much made it a norm... The nineties got some very good action films like Leon: The Professional and True Lies... It pretty much branched out from there...

    Kinda like the '90s gave birth to CGI with Jurassic Park, but now Y2K will be best remembered as the decade for CGIs especially a hit with fantasy and comicbook films...

    i liked all those college movies from the 80`s
    the frat boys vs the outlaws stuff from the us.



    but sometimes and even today all that pink and bright colors made me sick and wanted to walk down the street and push kick some dude in the head.
    dunno.
    maybe it was to much hehe.

    the golden age of movies was deffenatly the 80`s thou. the 90`s was mostly ripoffs of other ppl`s work and whatnot.

    oh shit, I can't decide. Blade Runner is definately my favorite Sci-Fi from the 80s, but so many other great movies...

    for overall 90s though, I think I might have to say The Big Lebowski (once again though, tough choice to make)

    80's were the last generation of good movies imho, the 90's were nothing but crappy repeats of old movies and blatant advertising.

    80's: The Thing, the ONLY horror movie that ever got me frightened and paranoid

    90's: sigh... I guess Eraser, if only because it had the governator killing and insane amount of terrorist ass with dual rail guns.

    the bests films from 80s & 90s

    Actually, if you think about it, remakes are nothing new in Hollywood... They've been remaking films since the 1930s (Hell, The Maltese Falcon was made and remade in the thirties--same decade--before Howard Hawks adapted it in the early forties!)!... I think they're more apparent nowadays only because they're big-budgeted remakes...

    True, but they were also more frequent in the 90's and even today in the 2k's (which I lovingly refer to as "90's Jr.")

    Sure independant movies have flourished, but normal movies have gone WAY downhill.

    *sigh* I can't help but agree.... There's some odd gems popping out here and there but overall, it's really meh... In thirty, forty years from now, who will even remember Tara Reid, Uwe Boll, Milla Jovovich?... Star power is nothing if you got no great performances/directorial films to back it up...

    See my list up top once again if you can't think of any good movies from the 90s. Don't think any of those are out-and-out remakes, though a couple based on books and a few with heavy homage to earlier cinema, but they're all A grade regardless. No decade "had no good movies". It has not yet happened, and I seriously doubt it ever will, despite some of the sad shit Hollywood has been churning out.

    Tough call for eighties movies. There were a lot of good ones. I'll go with Mad Max 2. It's Australian, got good characters, nice cinematography and writing and real stunts.

    its like the movies from the 70-80`s was like a good meal that your mother made or girlfriend. you took a while to eat the meal and you even relaxed afterwards and thought about it for awhile . 90-2k`s movies is like fast food. you eat the meal quick as hell and afterwords your still hungry and you asked yourself why the fck did i buy that meal. you wandering around still hungry and perhaps buys some more snacks or fast food products.


    i stopped watched movies since the beginning of the 20k. it was all just remakes and digital stuff. no "soul" or whatsitcalled. no coolness or anything,perhaps it has to do what the aging progress , but i still enjoy art and like to watch that too and i havent stopped doing that.

    its just lacking something that i cant put my finger on if you know what i mean. maybe its all that digital shit and the mtv commercial story telling in a movie these days, fast and digital. reminds me of the playboy chicks with no brains and all package. well to be honest i rather sleep with a playboy chick then a normal chick. but still.

    the story tellers of movies today seems to be more intrested that it looks good then that the ppl get the message. nothing wrong with eye candy some times but my tv is off and i dont watch any movies at all anymore.
    seems hollywood lost its intelligence and invested in silicon tits instead.

    The only movies I have seen since 2000 that I liked are the Lord of the Rings movies. I agree with Mort in general; new movies are more like Mtv videos of the 80's than 80's movies were. I think that a lot of this is because of the push for pg-13 touchy-feely movies. Ninety minutes of people shuffling around, half of which couldn't act there way out of a paper bag.

    Haha... Obviously from what I can see, majority of the people here are a child of the '70s and '80s...

    I personally love the nineties and Y2K decades more, but the nineties sport two of the most infamous remakes I can think off: The Casablanca remake entitled "Havana" and Van Sant's dreaded Psycho remake.... I still have to watch both to see if how crappy they are as people said... I know it won't live up to the originals, but I'll make my own judgment on that...

    And yes, there's too much CG fest on most movies nowadays, it's so artificial, I feel like I'm watching a 3D animation films instead of real live actors... *cough* Return Of The King *cough* Harry Potter *cough* Underworld... Bah!...
