1. Terminator 2 - possibly the best action movie of that era. 2. Conan the Barbarian - it was one of the first fantasy films that took fantasy seriously. 3. The Terminator - Michael Biehn is awesome. Don't argue with that. You'll just look stupid. 4. Predator - kind of a dumb movie, but I saw it as a kid and it was pretty much the most violent thing I had seen in my life and that made me feel like big stuff. 5. Terminator 3 - I know I am in the minority on this one, but I think this one falls in line with the first two. It actually makes sense of the plot that pretty much got mangled in the second one - if they stopped Judgement Day from happening then how in the world is John Connor still alive? Kyle Reese would never have come back if Judgement Day was stopped, which means that he would never have sperminated Sarah Connor...hence, no John Connor. At least the third film brings some resolution to that plot thread.
