Robocop
The Terminator
Aliens
Platoon
Predator
The Empire Strikes Back
Indiana Jones

They don't make em like they used to. There are loads more but these are the definative ones for me personally.

@conor - was catholic boys the one with Kevin Dillon? Brilliant movie, haven't seen it in years!

Yep that's the one. Rented it in my early teens, completely ignorant of the contents. The toilet scene caught me and my parents by surprise...

Has Weekend at Bernies raised it's head yet? So cheesy and what a terrible plot, had to be one the finest moments surely?

To my shame, I have yet to see Stand By Me...
