Did old man VBG say why no one picked T2? Probably because it came out in 1990 old man.

Feel like my Wildcard should either be Naked Gun (fair shout that someone had that down for me from the start!) or Brewsterís Millions (largely picked films Iíve seen loads and that felt like it was on Saturday night TV every month for a while in the late 80s!

I'm really happy with The Neverending Story as my pick, but that was my preferred choice in that category. I almost cried when I realized I couldn't because of the year thingy. It was my first memory of ever watching a movie and having it on VHS, I must have watched it a hundred times.  :'(

Yes as a kid I cried a few times during the first viewing of Land Before Time. An American Tale is another really good one from Don Bluth.

That film was so traumatising to child me that I couldn't even bring myself to pick it here.

Cat 1. Action/War/Western: The Killer (1989, John Woo)



Cat 2. Thriller/Crime: Blue Velvet (1986, David Lynch)



Cat 3. Adventure/Fantasy: Return of the Jedi (1983, Richard Marquand)



Cat 4. Drama/Romance: Paris Texas (1984, Wim Wenders)



Cat 5. Comedy/ Musical: Caddyshack (1980, Harold Ramis)



Cat 6. Horror: Manhunter (1986, Michael Mann)



Cat 7. Sci-Fi: Robocop (1987, Paul Verhoeven)



Cat 8. Animation/Family: My Neighbour Totoro (1988, Hayao Miyazaki)



Cat 9. Wildcard: Rumble Fish (1983, Francis Ford Coppola)



Speaking of Rumble Fish, I didn't get a chance to rave about it before. Coppola's big attempt at an art movie, Rumble Fish succeeded on pretty much every count (except, unfortunately, at the box office). It looks stunning, Stewart Copeland's score is exquisite and the cast (which includes Matt Dillon, Dennis Hopper, Diane Lane, Nic Cage, Lawrence Fishburne and Tom Waits) is terrific. Best of all is Mickey Rourke, showing why it didn't seem ridiculous for people to be labelling him a cross between Dean and De Niro at that point in time. It really works tonally too in a way most of Coppola's 80's stuff doesn't, feeling dramatic and moody without being silly, especially in its few bright bursts of colour. And the ending is great.
