Between the hours of 4 p.m. and  7 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, the pay channel world of cable was Stuck in the 80s. These were all on TV at the SAME time:

  • Raising Arizona (1987)
  • The Goonies (1985)
  • Weird Science (1985)
  • The Hand (1981)
  • Dead Calm (1989)
  • Back to the Future (1985)
  • Excalibur (1981)
  • Full Metal Jacket (1987)
  • Midnight Run (1988)
  • Dirty Dancing (1987)
  • High Road to China (1983)
  • The Hitcher (1986)
  • Britannia Hospital (1982)
  • Barbarosa (1982)

Fourteen movies to choose from, including two that I'd never heard (The Hand and Britannia Hospital) and two more that I never plan on seeing (The Goonies and High Road to China).

Which one would you pick to watch?
