If you were a teenager in the 1980s, Filmmaker John Hughes gave your generation a voice.  From Weird Science and Pretty in Pink to Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club, he combined the angst of young love with the insanity of the high school food chain to capture a snapshot of Generation X during their formidable years.  In 1986, Paramo...

In 1982 director Walter Hill (Brewster's Millions) brought together Eddie Murphy (Coming to America) and Nick Nolte (The Prince of Tides) in 48Hrs., a film that has since become attributed with the beginnings of the buddy cop movie genre.  Several series, including Beverly Hills Cop and Lethal Weapon, followed this new trend, mostly with great...
