The Boogey Man (1980)

About The Movie:

When they were children, siblings Lacey and Willy are abused by their mother's drunken boyfriend. Willy took revenge by taking a knife and killing the guy in a bloody mess, while Lacey watched him do so reflected in a mirror. Years later, Lacey (Suzanna Love, The Devonsville Terror) and Willy (Nicholas Love, Twin Peaks) live on a quaint little farm and are trying to move on. Lacey is married and has a little boy, but some intense nightmares reveal that she's still not over what happened. Willy, meanwhile, isn't dealing with it very well either. He hasn't spoken since that night, he keeps snakes and tarantulas as pets, and he has his own personal knife collection.

When her psychiatrist (John Carradine, Ice Pirates) suggests Lacy visit her childhood home as a way of freeing herself from her personal demons, pretty much the exact opposite happens. She spots the same mirror where she once spied the murder, freaks out, and smashes it with a chair. Oh, Lacey, you shouldn't have done that, because you've unleashed your mom's beau's evil spirit, and he's out for vengeance. Now, Lacey, her family, and anyone else reflected in the mirror's broken pieces will meet their gory end at the invisible hand of the Boogeyman.

Eddie & The Cruisers (1983)

This Is One Of My Top 10 Movies & Soundtracks From The 80´s.
About The Movie:

The Movie Is About A 1960s rock 'n roll band called Eddie and the Cruisers. The band makes a name for itself while playing regularly at a Somers Point, New Jersey club called TonyMart's. It is there that they meet Frank "Wordman" Ridgeway, whom Eddie hires to be the band's keyboard player and lyricist.

With Ridgeway's help the band stops playing cover songs and releases an album of original material, Tender Years, that becomes a hit. The band spends a year recording their next album, A Season in Hell. The album is a culmination of all that Eddie has ever hoped to do with music, different from anything that anyone else had ever done at that point. It strikes the head of their record company, Satin Records, as too strange to release.

In the early morning hours after Satin refuses to release the new album, Eddie's car goes over the side of the Raritan Bridge. His body is never found, and he is declared dead.

Almost 20 years later, Satin re-releases the band's first album, which becomes a surprise hit, climbing higher on the charts than the original ever did. This is where the movie begins, with the editors of a television show deciding to do a story on the band, with an attempt to bring light to the band's second album, which disappeared from the vaults of Satin Records the day after Eddie supposedly died.

Though the namesake of the movie is the band's lead singer, the movie revolves around the other members of the Cruisers, especially Frank Ridgeway, and their memories of the band. All of the members have by now moved on with their lives, and are mostly not involved in the music business at all. Much of the movie takes place in flashback, prompted by the television reporter, Maggie Foley. Tensions building within the Cruisers during the flashback sequences coincide with Frank becoming more open about the story with Maggie.

The story's climax involves Eddie's girlfriend, Joann Carlino, completing the one piece of the flashback puzzle that Frank could not: what happened the night that Satin refused to release the band's second album?

After storming from the studio, Eddie brought her to the Palace of Depression, a makeshift castle made of garbage and junk that he visited often as a child. She reveals that it was in fact her that took the master tapes for Season in Hell from Satin Records, hiding them in Palace of Depression, where she felt they belonged.

Frank and Joann go back to Palace of Depression to retrieve the master tapes. After returning to Joann's house, she receives a phone call that she believes to be from Eddie, who has been missing for almost 20 years, and with whom she remains in love. Frank hides outside and watches as a blue chevy, identical to Eddie's old car, arrives at the house, and a voice that sounds like Eddie's calls to her. Before Joann can reach the car, Frank pulls the driver from behind the wheel, who turns out to be the band's old manager, who was using the trickery to obtain possession of the master tapes. They give him the master tapes for Season in Hell, which he promises to release under a deal that will benefit all of them.

The movie closes with Maggie's story about the band, being viewed on televisions in a store window and watched by a crowd outside. The credits roll as a song from Season in Hell is premiered for the first time, and as the lights from the television dim, the crowd walks away, leaving only one person standing at the window. His reflection appears in the store window, revealing him to be the long-lost Eddie Wilson, much older and with a beard.

The soundtrack for the movie is performed by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. They are best known for their work in the movie, as well as in its sequel.

Electric Dreams (1984)

About The Movie:

The story opens with Miles Harding, an architect who envisions a brick shaped like a jigsaw puzzle piece that could withstand earthquakes. Seeking a way to get organized, he buys a home computer (made by the fictitious company Pinecone Computers) to help him develop his ideas. Although he is initially unsure that he will even be able to correctly operate the computer, he later buys numerous extra gadgets that were not necessary for his work, such as switches to control household appliances like the blender, a speech synthesizer, and a microphone. The computer addresses Miles as "Moles", because Miles mistyped his name during the initial set-up.

When Miles attempts to download data from a mainframe computer at work, the computer begins to overheat. In a state of panic, Miles pours a nearby bottle of champagne over the machine, but instead of destroying it, this has the effect of bringing the computer to life.

The remainder of the movie deals with a love triangle between Miles, his computer (which identifies its own name as "Edgar" at the end of the movie), and Miles' neighbor, an attractive cellist named Madeline (Virginia Madsen). Edgar increasingly invades Miles' affairs leading to several invasions into his life away from the house.

Eventually, Edgar accepts that Madeline and Miles' love for each other, and appears to commit suicide by sending a large electric current through its modem, around the world, and back to itself. It is revealed in the final scene that Edgar has transferred himself away from his computer "body" into electronic systems in the world.

Major League (1989)

About The Movie:

The Cleveland Indians are perennial losers. For years, few things have gone right with the team, and when Rachel Phelps (Margaret Whitton), a former Las Vegas showgirl, inherits the team from her late husband, it doesn't look like their fortunes will change any time soon. The greedy Phelps hates Municipal Stadium and the city, and sees an opportunity to get out of Cleveland: if the team's attendance falls below 800,000 paid customers, she can legally void the Indians' lease with the city and move the team to Miami, Florida.

To that end, she signs "a has-been and a couple of never-will-bes," including catcher Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger), an aging former All-star (and former Indian, two seasons earlier) with chronic knee problems who has been toiling in the Mexican League; pitcher Rick Vaughn (Charlie Sheen), a punked-out felon from the "California Penal League" with a blazing fastball (Sheen at the time could top 80 miles per hour); Willie Mays Hayes (Wesley Snipes), a speedy center fielder who boasts that he hits like Willie Mays and runs like Bob Hayes; Pedro Cerrano (Dennis Haysbert), a surly Cuban defector who possesses incredible power, but can't hit a curveball and believes in voodoo to help him get out of batting slumps; and Eddie Harris (Chelcie Ross), a veteran finesse pitcher who, without a powerful arm like Vaughn's, resorts to doctoring the ball with Crisco, Vagisil, Bardahl, and, if the umpires are watching him closely, snot. Already under contract is third baseman Roger Dorn (Corbin Bernsen), a high-priced prima donna who is biding his time until free agency and is making "plans for life after baseball," so he refuses to field the ball properly for fear of debilitating injury. Hired to manage the team is Lou Brown (James Gammon), a tire salesman who's managed in the minor leagues for years, but had never reached the majors. The only person privy to Rachel Phelps' plan is newly promoted General Manager Charlie Donovan (Charles Cyphers), the team's former field manager.

Spring training in Tucson does not go well. Vaughn's fastball is clocked at 96 miles per hour, but he has problems throwing it in the strike zone. Hayes, who thinks he has home-run power but hits pop flies instead, is told by Brown that he should hit the ball on the ground and "leg out" base hits. On the final cut-down day (teams can keep 25 players active through most of the season; those who don't make the team are sent to the minor leagues or released outright), a tag in his locker tells Vaughn that he's been demoted; it turns out to be a prank played by Dorn, who thinks Vaughn is a show-off due to his flashy appearance ("Whoa! Another freak-show candidate. How do you cut your hair, rook, Veg-O-Matic? The earring's cute, too, have you got the, uh, matching bracelet, 'veg-head'?").

Back in Cleveland, Taylor takes the rookies (Vaughn and Hayes) out to dinner at a fancy restaurant, where he sees his ex-girlfriend, Lynn Wells (Rene Russo), dining with her current beau. (Though listed in the credits as "Lynn Wells", her name is pronounced "Weslin" both times it's spoken in the film.) Noting that Lynn "would have been (my wife) if I hadn't messed things up," Jake decides to try to win her back. Because Taylor has a reputation as a womanizer (he was once hit with a paternity lawsuit; though it was a hoax, it was clear he had been with the woman), Lynn brushes off his advances, announcing instead that she and her fiance (Tom, an attorney) are getting married.

Vaughn, meantime, is struggling. In his season debut, his first pitch is delivered about four feet wide of home plate, prompting the team's Jack Daniel's-swilling announcer (Harry Doyle, played by former catcher and current Milwaukee Brewers announcer Bob Uecker) to deadpan, "Ju-u-u-u-u-u-ust a bit outside." Vaughn then proceeds to walk the bases loaded on 12 straight pitches, causing fans to quickly dub him "Wild Thing". Vaughn's subsequent appearances have similar results, prompting Brown to pull him into his office. "You've got a great arm, it's one of the best I've ever seen," says his manager, "but your control hasn't come around like we'd hoped it would." Brown begins to suggest a stint in the minors, then discovers that Vaughn has vision problems. With glasses, Vaughn's next appearance is a complete-game victory.

After a sluggish start, the Indians show signs of being competitive, compiling a won-loss record far better than Phelps expected. Deciding that the players are being "coddled", she guts the medical staff and equipment, turns off the hot water in the locker room, trades in the team airplane for a propeller-driven craft barely big enough to hold the team, and later dumps the plane in favor of a bus similar to those used by minor-league teams. Still, the Indians keep winning, and a confident Brown tells his General Manager, "all we need is something to bring it all together." Donovan ruefully provides that final ingredient by spilling Rachel Phelps' plans, and when Brown tells his team, its captain (Taylor) says the only thing left to do is win it all. As added incentive for each victory, Brown peels a section of clothing from a life-size cutout of Phelps from her days as a showgirl.

As the regular season ends, the Indians and the New York Yankees are tied for first place in their division, leading to a one-game playoff. During a news broadcast from the team's hotel, Dorn's wife sees him leave with another woman. Mrs. Dorn meets up with Vaughn—sitting in a bar, distraught after learning that he would be passed over in the pitching rotation in favor of the veteran Harris—sleeps with him, and tells her husband just before game time. When Vaughn is called in to relieve Harris in the ninth inning, Dorn runs to the pitchers' mound but, instead of fighting with Vaughn, implores him to strike out the batter (Haywood).

With the game tied 2-2 in the bottom of the ninth, Hayes legs out a hit and steals second base. At the plate, Taylor signals a suggestion to Brown, then points to the bleachers, "calling his shot," announces Doyle. "Nobody's done this since Babe Ruth in the '32 World Series!" After a brushback pitch, Taylor points again, then bunts instead, barely beating the throw to first by the surprised third baseman, who had been duped into playing deep. Hayes is waved home by the third-base coach and slides in ahead of the tag, safe, sending the Indians into the playoffs with a 3-2 win.

The team and its fans go wild in celebration; Dorn sees Vaughn in the crowd of people, decks him with a punch, then pulls him back up and hugs him over their victory. Jake looks into the stands and sees Lynn, showing her left hand—there's no engagement ring, meaning she now believes Taylor is "just a guy trying to put his life back together." The film ends with Lynn in Jake's arms, and his teammates giving high-fives and signaling, "we're number one!"

Cocktail (1988)

About The Movie:

After leaving the army and moving to New York City, Brian Flanagan (Tom Cruise) gets a part-time job as a bartender while studying for a business degree (which he needs to get a job in marketing). This starts off tougher than he expected. However, using some tricks of the trade from his boss Doug Coughlin (Bryan Brown), Brian soon becomes one of the most popular bartenders in town.

Both Doug and Brian and Doug aspire to open their own bars someday; Brian intends to call his Cocktails & Dreams.

After competing with Doug for a girl named Coral (Gina Gershon), Brian heads to the Islands. There he continues working as a bartender (thereby raising money for Cocktails & Dreams), this time at a resort in Jamaica. He finds continued success, and also a romantic partner in Jordan Mooney (Elisabeth Shue). Jordan is an aspiring artist from NYC who, for now, works as a waitress. She and Brian fall for each other. Ultimately, they make love beneath a waterfall and Jordan becomes pregnant. Then Brian takes a bet from Doug to sleep with Bonnie (Lisa Banes), a wealthy older woman. Jordan catches Brian in the act and is devastated. She takes an overnight plane home to her rich Park Avenue parents.

Brian also returns to New York, with Bonnie. When their relationship (not surprisingly) fails, Brian seeks out Jordan's family. Her father Richard (Laurence Luckinbill) attempts to buy him off, without success. Brian begs Jordan's forgiveness and promises to take good care of their offspring. Jordan takes pity on Brian, especially after they both discover that Doug has committed suicide.

Brian finally earns enough money to make Cocktails & Dreams a reality (no pun intended). He throws his own wedding bash there, for Jordan and himself. She proudly informs him that soon they will have not one child but twins (a son and a daughter).

The movie also stars Kelly Lynch as "Kerry Coughlin."

However, first he must prove to himself, his family and his teammates that he can survive in the harsh, brutal world of Canadian Junior Hockey with a rag tag team of roughnecks, the Hamilton Mustangs. Possessing blazing speed and a quick stick, Youngblood quickly learns after a violent run-in with a brutish, neanderthal-like player, Carl Racki (George J. Finn) that flashiness and pure athletic ability simply will not be enough to be successful in this league. After his mentor and friend on the team, Sutton (Patrick Swayze) is brutally injured by the thuggish Racki, Youngblood returns home to the farm out of fear, sadness, and disgust. After a pep-talk by his older brother, Kelly (Jim Youngs) about the nature of never quitting and always standing up for yourself, Youngblood is inspired to learn how to fight and survive on the ice and adapt the killer instinct that has been stopping him from being successful. Youngblood returns to the team, a new man, ready to confront Racki in the final game of the playoffs between his team and the Thunder Bay Bombers.
