Beinahe vollständig in Vergessenheit geraten geht es nun weiter mit den kleinen Jahresrückblicken. Und auch 1987 hat so einiges zu bieten, wenn das Fundament des Buddy-Movies gelegt wird, junge US-Soldaten der Verzweiflung anheim fallen, sich diverse Vampire herumtreiben, Robocop Detroit vom Abschaum befreit oder Elliott Ness Al Capone festnageln will während ein jagender Außerirdischer eine Elitetruppe Stück für Stück auseinander nimmt. Hier also zehn Empfehlungen von mir, die nicht nur 1987, sondern auch heute noch ganz wunderbar funktionieren.
