The Quick Starter Must-Watch Guide

Hello all,

This is going to just be a simple list of what I consider to be must-watch action movies of the 80s and 90s. Reviews will probably follow of each of these, but for those of you who happen upon the site before those exist, here you are. In no particular order (other than Commando, which should be the first one):

Commando (1985)
Terminator 2 (and Terminator 1, just for continuity) (1991)
Lethal Weapon 1-3 (they get progressively sillier as they go, but are nevertheless enjoyable) (1987; ’89; ’92)
Die Hard 1 and 3 (1988; ’95)
The Running Man (1987)
Under Siege (1992)
Predator (1987)
Aliens (1986)
Big Trouble in Little China (1986)
Hard Target (1993)
Double Impact (1991)
The Delta Force (1986)
Invasion U.S.A. (1985)
Universal Soldier (1992)
Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)
Point Break (1991)
RoboCop (1987)
Dirty Harry (1971)
Top Gun (1986)

Here’s just a few to get you started. I’ll add more to this list as I think of them (and see them for myself), but like I said, this is just a quick-start guide.
