Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.

I'll just name a few.

Top Gun. Come on, how could you leave this off your list. New versions with yummy extras coming out on DVD soon.

Robocop. I must have been like 10 when I saw this in theatres with my friend and his dad. Seriously freaked me out. I'm pretty much completely desensitized to movie violence because of this movie alone.

Transformers the Movie. Naturally. This was the most violent cartoon I'd ever seen up to that point. I'd never seen anyone killed in a cartoon before, even if they were robots. I was a sheltered kid. And that leads me to...

Akira. Still the standard by which I judge all anime today.

A Better Tomorrow. John Woo's masterpiece, though he's made better movies (Hard Boiled), the fact that this movie single handedly launched the whole, Hong Kong, heroic bloodshed, gangster movie genre can't be ignored.

before you insult someone, you should first walk a mile in their shoes.

That way when you insult them, you are a mile away and you have their shoes.

Heh, Chung. Didn't you forget "pretty in Pink" in that list?

Seriously though, there were a lot of good movies in the 80's, among which a good number with a dutch actor (Rutger Hauer and I already counted 3 in the posts above)

Here's a couple of others to consider:

Flesh and Blood (again Rutger hauer)
Star wars (all 3)
Dune
Mad max
Romancing the Stone
Alien
2001
The exorcist
Scarface
Silence of the lambs

Discussing with a fool is like wrestling a pig in the mud, sooner or later you are bound to realise that the pig likes it.
