One of my all-time favorite movies.
2
The Color Purple 1985,  PG-13)
The Color Purple
It's too bad Oprah hasn't been in more films - she is a great actress
3
Mask 1985,  PG-13)
4
National Lampoon's European Vacation 1985,  PG-13)

great take on the classic detective

8

9
After Hours 1985,  R)
10
Anne of Green Gables 1985,  G)
Anne of Green Gables
While the sequel has the benefit of fully developed characters and storylines, this first one has the onus of setting the stage; thus the slightly less rating. But by the end it has hit it's stride, containing all emotional elements - as a great movie does.
11
Weird Science 1985,  PG-13)
12
St. Elmo's Fire 1985,  PG-13)
13
Runaway Train 1985,  R)
14
Murphy's Romance 1985,  PG-13)
Murphy's Romance
I didn't expect to like this movie as much as I did. It was serious and funny all at the same time. The cast was great - yes, even the young Corey Haim. James Garner continually surprises me. His best-actor nomination was well-deserved.
15
Summer Rental 1985,  PG)
16
Pee-wee's Big Adventure 1985,  PG)
17
Vision Quest 1985,  R)
18
Secret Admirer 1985,  R)
Secret Admirer
Cute 80's romantic comedy.
19
Rocky IV 1985,  PG)
Rocky IV
Rocky once again proves to be one of the most inspirational characters in film history. Backed by another solid soundtrack and exhilarating montages.
20
Mitt Liv som Hund (My Life as a Dog) 1985,  PG-13)
Mitt Liv som Hund (My Life as a Dog)
A beautifully-directed and touching story about a young, sensitive, intelligent boy who has to come to terms with the loss of his mother, his dog, and his own budding sexuality. Lasse Hallstrom is an extremely underrated director.
21
The Falcon and the Snowman 1985,  R)
The Falcon and the Snowman
A fine piece of dramatic filmmaking.
22
Sans Toit ni Loi (Vagabond) (Without Roof or Rule) 1985,  R)
23

24
The Purple Rose of Cairo 1985,  PG)
25
Clue 1985,  PG)
26
Back to the Future 1985,  PG)
27
Legend 1985,  PG)
Legend
Visually stunning (makeup is on par with Lord of the Rings - despite being 20+ years old) but pretentious and silly at times.
28
The Last Dragon 1985,  PG-13)
The Last Dragon
Classic 80's cheese! Featuring an early role by William Macy, and introducing former Cosby-kid Keshia Knight Pulliam. Of course all those original people in Hollywood are doing a remake...
29
Miranda 1985,  Unrated)
30
The Trip to Bountiful 1985,  PG)
31
A View to a Kill 1985,  PG)

36
Police Academy 2 - Their First Assignment 1985,  PG-13)
Police Academy 2 - Their First Assignment
Standard, goofy PA fun.
37
Tampopo 1985,  Unrated)
Tampopo
A fine tribute to the art of food presented as an amalgamation of Western and Samurai filmmaking.
38
Rambo: First Blood Part II 1985,  R)
39
Fraternity Vacation 1985,  R)
40
A Room With A View 1985,  R)
A Room With A View
Usually I am a fan of period pieces but I found this one exceedingly boring.
41
Brewster's Millions 1985,  PG)
Brewster's Millions
Had there been some more limiting stipulations to how the money could be spent this would be a good movie. As it is it simply is propped up by Pryor and Candy.
42
White Nights 1985,  PG-13)
White Nights
A rather interesting twist on what I was expecting from the storyline but it degenerated into a link of robotic scenes set to a hodgepodge of music and finally ended just plain weakly.
43
Private Resort 1985,  R)
44
Tomboy 1985,  R)
Tomboy
Cute, playful, cheesy 80's movie set to a Footloose-like soundtrack.
45
Prizzi's Honor 1985,  R)
Prizzi's Honor
Long before Mr. & Mrs. Smith there was this other overrated hitman/hitwoman story. The number of nominations it received was ludicrous, and the Anjelica Huston win perhaps the worst ever. Though if they had a category for worst ensemble accents I could see a victory.
46
Teen Wolf 1985,  PG)
47
Flesh & Blood (Flesh+Blood) (The Rose and the Sword) 1985,  R)
Flesh & Blood (Flesh+Blood) (The Rose and the Sword)
Verhoeven strays from his strength here, making a somewhat humdrum medieval piece.
48
Year of the Dragon 1985,  R)
Year of the Dragon
What started out seemingly as a Chinese Godfather just dragged on. The acting was poor, the dialogue weak, and the romantic interest scenes some of the worst I've ever seen.
49
Le Mansión de los Muertos Vivientes (Mansion of the Living Dead) 1985,  Unrated)
50
Red Sonja 1985,  PG-13)
Red Sonja
A horribly weak installment of the genre.
51
Creature 1985,  R)
Creature
At first I thought this might be so bad it was good, but the further along it went the more I realized it was just a bad amalgam of a variety of films of its ilk.
52
The Black Cauldron 1985,  PG)
The Black Cauldron
I now present the grand opening of the Disney cheese factory.
53
School Spirit 1985,  R)
54
Malibu Express 1985,  R)
55
Massacre in Dinosaur Valley 1985,  Unrated)
Massacre in Dinosaur Valley
This is actually somewhat entertaining.
56
Lifeforce 1985,  R)
57
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 - Freddy's Revenge 1985,  R)
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 - Freddy's Revenge
What a horrible sequel. Does Kim Myers look just like Meryl Streep or what?
58
Cavegirl 1985,  R)
