I love Critters. Childhood fav of mine. Class movie. Loads of fun, and a few scares in it, too.

Overall, not a 'classic' year for quality (in my book) but a few good ones for me would be....

Big Trouble in Little China
Star Trek IV : The Voyage Home
Highlander
The Fly
Pretty in Pink

Top 5.

1. Aliens, the only contemporary sci-fi action flick I think even comes close is Mad Max Fury Roaf.

2. Big Trouble in Little China, great flick, way ahead of it's time.

3. Star trek IV, hilarious, merits inclusion for the bus nerve pinch alone.

4.Karate Kid 2, a great sequel and I love Daniel San and Mr Miyagi.

5. Highlander, there can be only one ! Cheesy but a good fun adventure.

Also, special mention to Stand By Me,Transformers: the movie and Howard the Duck ( crap, but fun !)

Aliens and Blue Velvet pretty much tie for my #1 spot of the year.
