What do you guys think about Terminator's main theme, for instance?

Do you know any other movies with similar soundtracks?

I think an obvious answer would be Drive, that featured Kavinsky I think more than once, and besides the soundtrack the whole aesthetic of it was pretty synthwave.

A little more contemporary would be the soundtrack for "The Social Network". Gave me a whole new appreciation for Trent, and he and Atticus deserved those Oscars for it.

EDIT: Duh! One of the most 80s movies of all has a killer Tangerine Dream soundtrack: "Risky Business"! They also killed on the "Thief" soundtrack, too...that sort of served as the template for loads of Michael Mann's later work, such as the ultimate vapor TV show: "Miami Vice".

I'd say both Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049. But to some extent, even Tron (1982) has its own "synthwave" style imagery, although the soundtrack isn't very synthwavey
