What's your favorite 80's movie?

Ferris Bueller's day off is pretty much the greatest movie of all time, but I pretty much like anything written by John Hughes.

Not a Vietnam movie but I really like the absurdity of the Vietnam war play at the end of Rushmore (Dennis the Menace kid has a flame thrower!)

Yep.  It definitely is.  And when Barnes finally gets it, and the way he does... you just can't beat it.  

I had a Vietnam Vet tell me years ago that Platoon was the most realistic Vietnam War based film he had ever seen.  Not the Barnes - Elias - Taylor story, but the rest of it.

Tom Berringer is fantastic as Barnes. Never been a Sheen fan (dad or son’s).

My dad was in Vietnam, and it is his favorite.

The village scene is based on actual events. Sad but true!

Got to add Popeye to the list, one of the best Robin Williams performances you will ever see.
