Beverly Hills Cop II

I think this, for me, is arguably the movie that represented 1987 the most for me. Eddie Murphy was at his peak, and I probably watched it a million times — re-watching it now, it was crazy how many of the lines came back to me (like with The Golden Child). It’s not a great movie, but it oozes silly 80s charm, and it has just the right amount of over-the-topness/cheesiness, that is pretty much what made 80s action/comedy movies so much fun.
