Now That’s What I Call the ’80s [Movie Edition]
Y’all know I love entertainment and pop culture. I blog about my favorite TV shows all the time, and have been to Sundance Film Festival (and Bentonville Film Festival!) twice. For some reason though, there are a lot of classic ’80s movies I seem to have missed.
Yes, I was born in ’89 so it does makes sense why I wasn’t watching movies in the ’80s, but as a film lover I think this is totally unacceptable.
And so do my co-workers. So they’ve started me a list.
Husband and I have started on the list, and so far have made it through 4 of 21 – though the list grows by the day, so I’m not quite sure how we’ll keep up. Here’s what we’ve seen so far –
Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987) – Hilarious. Love Steve Martin and John Candy. We would totally watch this again.
Groundhog Day (1993) – Bill Murray humor is everything. They just don’t make good, clean funny movies like this anymore.
Ghostbusters (1984)- Funny and entertaining. Again, gotta love Bill Murray.
Animal House (1978) – Pretty funny, but not hilarious. John Belushi had some classic moments, but overall movie was just so random.
Beverly Hills Cop
Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Stand by Me
*Girls Just Want to Have Fun
The Money Pit
Better Off Dead
*Can’t Buy Me Love
The Lost Boys
Dumb and Dumber
*Denotes girly movie to watch without husband
What other classic movies should I add to my list?
(Note: I have already seen the following – All John Hughes movies, Top Gun, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Back to the Future, Dirty Dancing, Princess Bride, Footloose, When Harry Met Sally….)
Any Indiana Jones, really
The Princess Bride (absolute must see)
Full Metal Jacket
Coming to America
Those are some of my faves not on your list.
