1988 was a big year in movies with such blockbusters like Beaches and the ultimate Christmas movie Die Hard starring Bruce Willis. 1988 also saw the movie career of then TV star Tom Hanks transform into a movie star in Big. Of course, there was Rain Man, which earned Dustin Hoffman a Best Actor Oscar.
It was also a year when we saw just how Scrooged Bill Murray could be and talked a lot about A Fish Called Wanda. Young Guns brought Westerns back to the movie screen in a big way with an all-star cast that included Emilio Estevez and Keifer Sutherland. And who could forget the Eddie Murphy classic Coming To America? It was a big year for movies, no doubt.
