Ayatollah keeps telling me how "Dune" is the best movie in the world. So I finally watched it, and I have to agree, its clearly the best film ever made. You guys got any recommendations for other 80's Sci Fi / Fantasy etc in this vein?

    Dune could've been the greatest movie if Jodorowsky directed it.

    That would be mid seventies. On a side note, Agutter used to make me feel funny when they used to show that film on TV when I was a kid.

    As for eighties it was mainly on the tip obviously with:



    etc.

    and, of course,

    The Quiet Earth



    Love when he creates the cardboard cutout audience.

  • There was this one flick that was like "Metal" something and it was originally in 3-D. It was actually kinda wack but you know, it's obscure.

  • Alan Smithee?

    David Lynch is the fuckin man. You can't try to do a movie he did and think you can do it better. plus he had STING in it. ... STING.

  • DUUUUUUUDES


    omega man


    soylent green


    planet of the apes 1-8 - conquest for the... imo takes that shit.

    let's face it, Heston is the man for 70's/80's sci fi.


    runner ups:

    night of the comet

    dawn of the dead



    worst sci fi look ever:
    zardoz. don't even fucking think about going there unless you are watching this WITH weird al yankovic AND a joint the size of a baby's arm.

    Without googling this, is that Rick James, that bird out of Buck Rogers, and Brian Blessed on the poster?

    Tetsuo (the iron man)

    My old roommate Julia named her first son after this movie

    Not to be a nitpick, but a lot of the movies mentioned here are from the 70s, not the 80s (THX, Silent Running, Logan's Run, Omega Man, etc.). And if you're going to bring up stuff like Labyrinth (Dune-esque ), you might as well go all the way:
