Overly preachful at times, but I love a good vigilante justice movie.

Not quite as funny as I remembered, but still good Chevy Chase fun.
15
The Bear 1989,  PG)
The Bear
A quote from the American writer J.O. Curwood appears at the end of this beautifully cinematographic film - "The greatest thrill is not to kill but to let live." This theme is understatedly delivered by the talented Jean-Jacques Annaud in this touching story about a bear cub looking to fit in and the circle of life that nature represents, all set to a wonderul score.
16
Hairspray 1988,  PG)
17

Not a bad coming-of-age/coming-to-terms film.
18

Classic 80's horror.

Bloodsport 1988,  R)
Bloodsport
Fun, campy movie to watch with a few beers. I had tears of laughter in my eyes after watching young Frank.
24
Frantic 1988,  R)
Frantic
Normally I'm not a Harrison Ford fan, but I think his title of Moderately Disturbed for this is much more apt.
25
Action Jackson 1988,  R)
26
Taffin 1987,  R)
Taffin
Not much special here.
27
Earth Girls Are Easy 1989,  PG)
28
A Fish Called Wanda 1988,  R)
A Fish Called Wanda
This was all right. At least it was scads better than Terry Gilliam.
29
Bull Durham 1988,  R)
30
Stormy Monday 1988,  R)
Stormy Monday
Melanie Griffith does her part to help keep this from being anything but mediocre.
31
The Big Blue 1988,  R)
32
Biloxi Blues 1988,  PG-13)
Biloxi Blues
Boring for the most part.
33
Tucker: The Man and His Dream 1988,  PG)
Tucker: The Man and His Dream
Jeff Bridges can be extremely annoying and pick some bad roles. Jackpot. Though the Howard Hughes intervention and parallel made it more interesting.
34
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen 1989,  PG)
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Yet another overrated Terry Gilliam production.
35
Sleepaway Camp II - Unhappy Campers 1988,  R)
Sleepaway Camp II - Unhappy Campers
Just your typical 80's horror. In other words entertaining, though it does get a bit too silly at the end.
36
Beetlejuice 1988,  PG)
Beetlejuice
I don't understand the fascination with this movie. Tim Burton can be good, but is more often overrated. Winona Ryder is highly annoying here as well.
37
Bloodstone 1988,  PG-13)
Bloodstone
Quite bad.
38
Pembalasan ratu pantai selatan (Lady Terminator) (Nasty Hunter) (Shooting Star) 2003,  R)
Pembalasan ratu pantai selatan (Lady Terminator) (Nasty Hunter) (Shooting Star)
This one is so bad it's good.
39
Night of the Demons 1988,  R)
Night of the Demons
I liked the intro to the movie, and it was so cheesy it was kinda funny at first, but it was all downhill after that.

D.O.A. 1988,  R)
D.O.A.
Cheesy music, awful dialogue, and a twist I saw right from the beginning.
