    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    rad

    The dance scene where "Send Me An Angel" plays may be one of the best unintentionally funny scenes ever. A friend of mine owns a BMX shop here in KC and he recently had an outdoor showing of Rad at the local BMX track. Too bad the money wasn't there to recreate Hell Track.

    Hell Comes to Frogtown.

    "Rowdy" Roddy Piper is the last fertile man on the planet, so he must travel to Frogtown, home of humanoid mutant frogs to rescue the young fertile women and impregnate them.

    It's even better than it sounds.

    The last dragon

    Set in New York City, the plot follows a teenage martial arts student named Leroy Green (often referred to as "Bruce Leroy", although he never calls himself that) with dreams of becoming a great martial artist like his idol Bruce Lee. Leroy goes on a quest to achieve the highest level of martial arts accomplishment, known as "The Final Level". Martial artists who reach the "Final Level" possess "The Glow". As its name suggests it is a mystical energy that can be tapped into by a martial arts master. When a fighter's hands glow, he is one of the best in the world and when his entire body glows, he is the greatest fighter alive. On his journey to becoming the "Last Dragon" and wielding the power of "The Glow," Leroy must confront villains such as a crooked arcade mogul Eddie Arkadian (Murney) and the evil Sho'nuff, the Shogun of Harlem, from whom he must also protect his younger brother Richie (Leo O'Brien) and his love interest, TV music video host Laura Charles (Vanity)

    that movie absolutely rules, plus debarge on the soundtrack!

    dc cab

    just one of the guys

    Before I even clicked on this thread I was thinking of Just one of the guys.

    DC Cab's star power alone makes it a great 80's movie. Charlie Barnett (RIP) was great.

    Footloose

    A few years ago, a friend and I were having a couple of beers, and this movie came on. At first, we thought "oh, screw this," but it was so unintentionally funny right from the get-go that we watched the entire thing. We laughed hysterically for two hours. Would watch again...with a couple of beers and a couple of bros.

    Hell Comes to Frogtown.

    "Rowdy" Roddy Piper is the last fertile man on the planet, so he must travel to Frogtown, home of humanoid mutant frogs to rescue the young fertile women and impregnate them.

    Oh shit, I saw that!

    Short Circuit!

    Were the mid-'80s the last time it was OK to have a white dude play a non-white dude?

    "Soul Man" at least used it as the film's conceit.
