Figured since the 100 funniest of the 80's has wrapped up, to move on to the golden age of the action genre in the same decade.
1. Die Hard (McTiernan, 1988)
This time, John Wayne does not walk off into the sunset with Grace Kelly.
That was Gary Cooper, asshole.
In a decade full of movies that changed the game and spawned endless imitations, this is arguably the one that reigned supreme, and in no small feat it's the best modern action film of all time. McClane and Gruber are the single most iconic action hero and villain of all time. It's 40 stories of sheer adventure and everything else you'd want out of an action movie.
