Tomorrow, movie theatres will welcome the latest '80s artifacts to the screen. "The A-Team" and "The Karate Kid" have both been remade into summer blockbusters -- 2010-style -- but they're not alone.
From The Transfromers to Wall Street, the decade we love to hate is making a big-screen comeback.
In light of this, Q's Screenboy Jesse Wente presents his list of 80's films that deserve a remake, and those that shouldn't be touched.
Do you agree? What 80's films do you consider perfect? Which ones could stand some modern-day tweaking?
JESSE WENTE TOP FIVE '80S MOVIES THAT SHOULD NEVER BE REMADE
1/ The Breakfast Club - likely a film the studios would love to remake, this movie so perfectly captures the era in terms of it stars, the music, teen culture - it's perfect, so don't touch it
2/ Silkwood - one of my all time favorites and a film that not even a movie studio could bring itself to be remade
3/ Down by Law - Jim Jarmusch's second film is the type of auteur cinema that makes it impossible to remake, that and Tom Waits
4/ Brazil - Terry Gilliam's terrific political and social satire is a visual wonder that thankfully was such a fraught production that no one would dare revisit it
5/ Do the Right Thing - Spike Lee's masterpiece is one of the decade's most searing statements
Other hands off titles: Raging Bull, Blade Runner, Blue Velvet, Platoon, Ghostbusters
JESSE WENTE'S TOP FIVE 80S MOVIES THAT SHOULD BE REMADE
1/ Top Gun - perfect, loud, star making vehicle, set it in space or something and you have yourself a movie
2/ The Last Starfighter - a '80s Star Wars rip-off that had a good central premise and could use a digital effects reworking
3/ War Games - video games have come a long way since this '80s classic, and an update would be even more relevant, if not as prescient
4/ Back to the Future - family fun, with better effects could make this one work, although you'll never replace Chris Lloyd or Michael J Fox
5/ Terms of Endearment - a classic, but would work with Meryl Streep and Carey Mulligan style combo
