With The 'Burbs (1989) Joe Dante made a fun, darkly funny, quotable cult movie about next door neighbors that may or may not be crazed murderers. The Tim Burton comparisons are unavoidable at times but that's hardly important. And what a great cast. I like Tom Hanks. I don't fawn over him the way a lot of people do. But I think he is easily the funniest he's ever been in this film. Rick Ducommun is fantastic as well and threatens to steal the movie in almost every scene he's in. I love this film and it gets better with age.
Yor, The Hunter From The Future (1983) is cheesy sci-fi sword & sorcery from the director of Cannibal Apocalypse (1980), starring the guy that played Captain America in the two 1979 TV movies and one of the Bond girls from Moonraker (1979). It's got a killer theme song. If you're in the mood for Italian barbarian/Star Wars rip-off fluff, it's fun and funny.
