In honor of the “Footloose” re-make out in theaters this weekend (which I do not plan on seeing, by the way), I am going to list some of our all time favorite 80’s movies. These are not in any particular order.
I never saw this, but Chris did and he remembers it. ??
I STILL love this movie, and watched it within the last year!
Chris told me tonight he has never seen this movie! Damn you netflix for not having it on streaming! A must watch movie!
My mom loved Arnie. I loved this movie. It is SO cheesy…but I still love it!
Confession: when I had a birthday party at Uncle Milts Pizza Parlor and Pipe Organ in Vancouver Washington between 2nd and 3rd grade, my friends and I got on the stage and sang “Tomorrow”. Yes, we did. Awesome movie! Carol Burnett rocked it!
This ranks as one of my favorite all time movies. Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt. Excellent movie!
What can one say about this classic? Still love it!
John Hughes was an incredible movie maker….
Fiction and fantasy combine for an epic story!
Confession: I had never seen the original until just a couple of years ago.
Who didn’t want a Delorian??
Wax on, Wax off, Danielson!
I have never seen Spaceballs…this is one of Chris’ faves.
Oh man…I SO love this movie! I do not want them to remake this and ruin it.
I watch this movie every year at least once, usually around Easter. I call it the Easter movie. I cry every single time I watch it.
This movie freaked me out as a kid, but I totally loved it, too.
I didn’t see this until just recently. It is a good movie, but kinda sad.
Well of course…Sixteen Candles is another John Hughes classic!
Yes, Goonies. Still watch it, still love it!
Another of Chris’ movies….I’ve never seen it. Seems weird.
The movie that made us all want to be fighter pilots! Excellent film.
The movie that started my love affair with Kelly LeBrock! I was so pissed with Steven Segal left her for the babysitter! This movie rocks…who can forget Chet as a pile of $hit??
A movie I didn’t see in the 80’s, but still awesome.
What a story! Towanda!!
I love Cher. This movie freakin’ rocked! I still love it.
Still a total classic! I watch this regularly, too.
What are you favorite 80’s movies? What classics of the 80’s did I forget??
(Besides Star Wars, which is obviously included!! I just didn’t think I needed to specify it.)
Mrspantera…. I didn't include Grease, though I do LOOOOOVE it (even have the soundtrack!), because it was filmed in 1978. But hey…who doesn't love Danny and Sandy?? 🙂
Mar- I figured E.T. was kind of like Star Wars…you know…SO classic that I didn't need to mention it. 🙂 Drew Berrymore, Reese's Pieces….CLASSIC!
uh hello Grease! Oh and I LOVED the Outsiders! Read the book first about 20 times
*ahem* E. T. ???? *cough*
