Flashdance (1983) starring Jennifer Beals ~ FD was 1st (1983-04-15 Paramount), 4 years ahead of Dirty Dancing (1987 Aug 21 Vestron) yet for some reason most Americans remember DD, not FD. DD grossed $214M vs $93M FD. Sorry, but on all levels FD beats DD: cinematography, meaning, passion, reality, music, humor etc. DD is superficial @ corny cheap holiday vs FD @ real survival. DD is as cheap/silly as Dancing w/ the Stars (2005-06-01 abc), FD as real as So You Think YCDance (2005-07-20 fox)

"Rain Man" (1988) pairs Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise as brothers who learn of each other's existence after their father dies. It's a story of bonding, forgiveness and (naturally) brotherhood. Richly deserved its Best Picture win, as well as Best Director (Barry Levinson) and Best Actor (Hoffman). Qantas never crashed!
