Duke Nukem was classic, definitely worthy of the video game as well. 

"I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum." 

Weren't they (or haven't they) releasing a new video game?

Oh I loved te hellraiser as kid and the gate. I seem to watch those all the time. But my most favorite of all times, the one I knew the lines to, watch everyday, dance and sing to, was THE LOST BOYS. I love my vampire movies, don't get me wrong I love my guts and blood ALOT but for some reason as a little girl I was dawn to the lost boys like a bug and a ligh bulb lol

Kinda hard to comment since most posts apparently used links instead of typing the movie title? They've all disappeared from the individual postings. Result: No clue what the poster was adding to the list. Start of this post is missing the entire list. All I see is their name and how many people liked the movie they linked, whatever it was, before the link died and blew away.

Quite a few movies come to mind. 

Carpenter's The Thing and Cronenberg's The Fly - my two favorite 80s horror movies (I guess you could call the sci-fi too)

A few more that kind of went under the radar at the time -

My Bloody Valentine - a great twist in the then up and coming slasher genre

Dead and Buried - great atmosphere!

The Funhouse - very scary and original monster in my opinion

The Beast Within - some bad special effects and atrocious acting but overall this film works for some reason

The Burning - I didn't see it when it was originally released. Picked it up on video by chance a few years ago. I liked it!
