I'll let you into a secret, Gay. 

When we were naked, the arm I'd wrestle with looked like a baby's holding a jaffa orange. 

Nice of you to intimate how well designed Rust Cohle is!!

Not the best 80's action film but i reckon the most '80's' 80's action film for me is Buckaroo Banzai, dimesion jumping rocket cars, aliens, shootouts, synth soundtrack, martial arts and rock and roll, with Peter Weller playing the lead and John Lithgow at his villainous best lou_smiley

Wargames?

Does that qualify?

Sadly, no.   Being whisked around on the back of Ally Sheedy's scooter doesn't count as an "action movie" bletch.

Good to know.

This thread needs more rules. 

It's chaos.

 As Joshua might say, the only way to win is not to play.

I saw WarGames tons of times.  Hugely influential film for yours truly - put me in the mood to ask for a computer at a young age, which ended up being a career.

 I've never seen this before.  Watchable now, but only do-able with nostalgia backing it up?

I only heard of it a few months ago, very watchable I'd say, doesn't take itself too seriously and I think it would never even have got past the draft script stage in any other decade
