Top Ten Movies of 1986


The Top Ten

1 Aliens Aliens

This was the best Alien, Ripleys battle with the Queen was legendary, she was a badass in this movie. Not a sissy head like the first one. She got nominated for an Academy Award. Fast paced action with Marines, the first one, childish scientists with no weapons except a cheap axe and a baby flamethrower.

A classic this movie lives on as... - roblist

When u look back on the history of these movies, producers made so much money with the Aliens and Predator movies - 3anegroes

Aliens was awesome! Now you people are thinking clearly. Aliens should be #1 and Top Gun should be #2. - nallimcamybloc

7 Cobra Cobra
8 House House
9 Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
10 Stand By Me Stand By Me

This and Ferris Bueller's day off are two of my favorite movies. Stand By Me is an amazing movie with a superb performance by River Phoenix. It captures the essence of childhood and has an amazing storyline.
Chris: Ya sure. Give me some skin.
Gordie: I'll see ya.
Chris: Not if I see you first.
Best movie ever!
