The Last American Virgin has some merits as well. But maybe only if one goes into it not knowing much about it.
I've seen that one and liked it, although the heavier elements worked a lot better for me than the pure teen sex comedy stuff.

For me the teen sex comedy is just a Trojan Horse for those heavier elements. I don't think I remember laughing at it much.

I recently re-watched this film (having not seen it since the 80s) so I'll be intrigued.

I should probably prioritize Fast Times given my extremely half-assed run through '80s comedies over the last few months.
Ok, I grabbed this and Valley Girl for some '80s teencom goodness. Also, Endless Love with Brooke Shields because the post-it on the cover placed by the video store staff promised some delicious sociopathy.

(Also Legend of the Mountain, but that's not from the '80s so I will speak no more of it here.)

On a non-comedic '80s note, Clint Eastwood's Firefox is pretty lame. There's some novelty in the flight sequences in the last half hour, which are a halfway point between Star Wars and Top Gun, but the hour and forty five minutes before that are a total slog. The problem is that a) Eastwood doesn't really have a feel for the espionage elements that make up those sections and b) all the heroes are defined by their hatred of the Soviets and neither them nor the villains have any other discerning qualities (except Eastwood's character's PTSD, although that barely figures into the proceedings).

So...

Fast Times is very good (and I wonder what the hell movie Ebert watched because the movie isn't guilty of anything he accuses it of), but Valley Girl really did it for me. Cage before he went full Cage but still distinctly Cage ends up being surprisingly effective in a romcom.

Endless Love has some amusing camp value but was grossly oversold to me in that regard. There's also an unintentional element of discomfort in the age difference between the leads, Brooke Shields being an actual teenager playing a teenager while Martin Hewitt looking twice her age.

(Also, off topic, but Legend of the Mountain is terrific and terrifically gorgeous. I might still be feeling the high from the movie, but I'm tempted to call it one of the best looking movies I've ever seen.)

Birdy remains the great unsung Nicolas Cage 80s classic.

Why does everyone I bring this film up to think I'm talking about some kind of Clint Eastwood movie?

I figured there was no way you'd never heard of Clint's movie, but like I said - it gets harder and harder to pick out the sarcasm these days.

Everybody just calm right down.

I've never been more serious about anything in my life than I am in insisting that Birdy is not a Clint Eastwood movie. Together, perhaps, we can make it past this nightmare of misattribution.

Road House surprised me in a good way. I went in thinking it would be a so bad, it's good cheese fest, and while it has plenty of (good) cheese, I found it to be much more thoughtful and heartfelt that I anticipated. While the movie has a lot going for it from the strong cast that includes Kelly Lynch, Red West and Sam Elliott to quotable dialogue like "pain don't hurt," its Dalton's and thus the movie's philosophy that is the movie's secret sauce. Summarized in another one of movie's maxims, "nobody wins a fight," I appreciate its stance that the only fight worth having is one to defend and protect your loved ones. There are some cringe-worthy moments here and there that may have been cool in 1989, but haven't aged well, and some of the characters' decisions - Wesley's in particular - deserve scrutiny even if they result in good action scenes. Even so, I now have a go-to whenever anyone asks me for a suggestion about a fun '80s movie...especially if the person asking is a rowdy type.

I was really disappointed with Action Jackson. It's the cinematic equivalent of Fruit Stripe gum: while it's satisfying at first, it gets more bland and flavorless as time passes. A lot of that disappointment is on me and what I assumed I was in for, but with a title like Action Jackson, Carl Weathers in the starring role and that DVD cover, how could anyone not believe it's over the top, slightly satirical and, well, fun? It promises to have such qualities early on, but it ends up being just another action movie about a male cop who plays by his own rules versus a big bad businessman - specifically, Weathers' sergeant versus sleazy car magnate Peter Dellaplane (Craig T. Nelson) - that uses all of the same old tricks from the Joel Silver playbook. From Happy Gilmore to The Mandalorian, I've loved all of Carl Weathers' performances, but if this movie is any indication, he's better suited for character work because as the movie went on, he seemed to be as equally uninterested and overwhelmed by all the stultifying familiarity as I was. Vanity and the always-reliable Al Leong provide the movie with much-needed life, and if anything, the movie is valuable as a cultural artifact of 1988; after all, it is incredibly 1988. Even so, your time would be better spent watching Shakedown from the same year because it's all of those things plus the things I assumed I'd find in Action Jackson.

I'm surprised I couldn't get into it because that's my favorite kind of cheese. I did like Al Leong, Vanity (aside from the obvious reason), the music and the visuals, at least.
Oh, and Thomas F. Wilson, a.k.a. Biff. It's always nice to see him.

Music by Herbie Hancock

I love how they have to force his intro into the opening moments of the movie, when they go out of their way to say he has a degree from Yale or Harvard in criminal law or some shit.

For better or for worse, you have to give credit to Carl Weathers for playing the hell out of that role. I've been a fan of his since Rocky.

If you're in the mood for a so bad, it's good '80s masterpiece, watch R.O.T.O.R. Essentially a rip-off of both The Terminator and Robocop, it features the worst fashion and hairstyles the decade offered - shoulder pads and permed mullets abound - cringey lines like one involving skeletons making love in a tin coffin and seemingly countless stultifying phone conversations. Oh, and there's an inexplicable scene with a ridiculous "Native American" character named - and who could only be named - "Shoeboogie." I can't sincerely rate it more than one star, but I still give it my highest recommendation.
