As a lifetime avid pool player I enjoyed The Color of Money. Unfortunately it was not nearly as good as The Hustler, which preceded it. Good acting by Paul Newman, and decent by Tom Cruise and M.E. Mastrantonio. Slightly over written, but a semi-classic.

IMO the best movie of '86 was Hannah and Her Sisters. Great performances from all, good writing and directing by Woody Allen. One of his best.



My Favorite 1986 Movies:
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Crossroads
Short Circuit
The Karate Kid Part II
F/X
Brighton Beach Memoirs
An American Tail
52 Pick-Up
Running Scared
Stand by Me
Lucas
Top Gun
River's Edge
