They weren't all winners--Cyndi Lauper, ugh; Milli Vanilli, double ugh. But there were an awful lot of really good times then as this 4.5 minute nicely done video makes clear.
Mr. Jackson has a large number to choose from. But he picked some of my favorites including a surprising #1. (5 minute video.)
I think I've posted before that the first 45 minutes of Full Metal Jacket are like nothing I had ever seen before (or since).
I thought Tremors was a lot of fun. Fine performances by Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter, and Michael Gross.
The important differences between the book Margaret Mitchell wrote and the movie. (Which, at four hours long, is among the longest-seeming time periods of my life. My wife still owes me for dragging me to see that turkey.)
I judge most of the answers here to be quite unsatisfactory. Here's my first pass at the list:
- The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
- Charlie Wilson's War
- Godfather I
- Grosse Point Blank
- Margin Call
- Master and Commander
- Point Break (Keanu version)
- Searching for Bobby Fischer
My takeaway is that professional stylists, hair, and makeup folks--at least some of them--are worth their pay.
I, for one, really enjoyed it.
I'll second the motionsfor R. Lee Ermey and Rutger Hauer.
May be some movies worth checking out. One listed that I have already seen and liked quite a bit is The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension.
