    The movie 1984 with John Hurt was pretty good.

    Wow, 5 classic movies,
    Ghostbusters
    Indiana Jones - Temple of Doom
    Star Trek III
    The Natural
    Police Academy

    And 2 that weren't bad:
    Karate Kid
    Gremlins

    I think Gremlins was so popular because it had groundbreaking special effects. Other than that, it was OK.

    If somebody tried to argue that Star trek III isn't a classic, I might be OK with that. It was in the top 10 for the year but Gremlins and Karate Kid both earned more.

    the Karate Kid had a great villain. it's worth sitting through the movie to see him get his due. it's my favorite of all the movies on that list

    Karate Kid was one of the 1st movies I remember seeing with no parental supervision. Just me and some buddies, I remember us jumping out of our seats when he landed the crane kick. :facepalm:

    Never seen't any old school Star Trek movies.

    They've been playing the Police Academies on IFC and I've been watching them. :sarcastic:

    I don't even want to look at what's in the theater this weekend. Transformers 12? Garbage. :facepalm:

    I didn't like Ghostbusters much, either. The Karate Kid is a much better film, which earned Noriyuki "Pat" Morita an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

    I didn't see the Karate Kid until early November that year, which kind of shows how much more staying power movies had back then. Of course, VCR's hadn't hadn't arrived in every house yet, and things are definitely different now with movies lasting in theaters for 4-6 weeks and then coming out on Blu-Ray/DVD three months later.

    It wasn't that good. Ice Cube can't act, and the film is entirely dependent on cursing for laughs. Best scene in the movie comes after the credits roll. It's a short clip with Rob Riggle and Dave Franco
