Friends, I drank WAY too much Guinness last night.

When I went to the ladies’ room, I passed stout.

Ferris Buehler’s Day Off

Zebra Seasoning said...

Breakfast Club. I know it's problematic, but it SPOKE to me back in the day.

Zebra Seasoning said...

@Moose: Diva is GREAT. "Je n'aime rien."

Mooney said...

Planes trains and automobiles!

HeffalumpsAndWoozles said...

Transformers the Movie.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. It is the most 80s of all 80s movies and the fact it never produced a franchise makes us all lessor.

rocky619ca said...

Seems Like Old Times.

Marvin Hamlish did the musical score.

Moose said...

@Zebra Seasoning - :)

It's such a beautiful movie to watch, and the performances are excellent. And I LOVE hearing Fernandez singing The Wally.

Astra Worthington said...

How is Breakfast Club problematic? Good lord.

Probably Sixteen Candles or Pretty in Pink. I loved them so much! I wanted to be a teen in the 80’s so bad 🥺 And you cant beat the term “oily bohunk”.

Diane said...

"Thief of Hearts" with then-gorgeous Steven Bauer. "Dream Lover" with a young James Spader

Raising Arizona.
I love the scene with the family selfie
The sad a disappointed look that Cage gives the supermarket worker who has just tried to shoot him with a shotgun makes me laugh out loud every single time.

Derp said...

Girls just wanna have fun. Check out SJP in all her GND glory before she butchered her face.

Vita said...

LOVE Raising Arizona!
This is Spinal Tap
The Princess Bride
Coming to America

Moose said...

An 80s movie that really is not that good, but I absolutely love...

Night Of The Comet.

Sallysal said...

Sex Lies and Videotape

Erik said...

Raiders of the Lost Ark

Count Jerkula said...

I believe it was titles Marilyn Chambers' Private Fantasies Vol 1. The scene where she is in a cheerleader outfit, sans panties, on top of the soda shop counter, and a gentleman is digging maraschino cherries out of her anus was a cinematic masterpiece.

Astra Worthington said...

Hahaha Count is that for real?!!! OMG 😱

Unknown said...

To many to chose one 1. Princess Bride 2. St. Elmo's Fire 3. From the Hip 4. Pretty in Pink 5.Sixteen Candles 6. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure 7. Die Hard

gauloise said...

Breaking Glass, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Spinal Tap, St Elmo's Fire

So many! I doubt if i could even come up with one from the current decade. Donnie Darko is maybe the last film I really enjoyed

The word problematic is in itself problematic. Breakfast Club ruled!

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

Now this movie should have spawned a franchise or at least a made for TV series. It would have been cheap to make and better than most 80s TV shows.

Unknown said...

Too many to choose just one: Top Gun, When Harry Met Sally, ET, Rainman, Breakfast Club, I really could go on....

Thorne said...

Can't Buy Me Love

Was with you all the way until you didn't say Molly Ringwald.

Ghostbusters

DarylsBigFan said...

I didn't go to movies in the 80s.

Studio54 said...

Platoon is a masterpiece. Hollywood was rewriting the Vietnam war by giving money to people that were never in the war, like Sylvester Stallone. Oliver Stone was there, his knowledge of the actual facts of that war made all the difference in that movie.

Too bad Oliver Stone ruined his own career w/ #metoo and kissing the backside of dictators like Putin.

Raiders of the Lost Ark or Airplane? Shout to Trading Places and Raging Bull.

Ann said...

+1 Vince. Raiders of the Lost Ark. I loved that shtick movie Weekend at Bernies. For some reason I thought it was hysterical.

Hotbox said...

“Beetlejuice.” It used to be the “Vacation” movies with Chevy Chase, until I worked with him & learned how much of a dick he really is.

PhillyWilly said...

Rob Horine said...

Almost every friday in Louisville, KY. we went to the Showcase cinemas. About 12 screens. Saw so many movies there. Can't narrow it down to one.

1. The Sure Thing
2. Desperately Seeking Susan
3. Night of the Comet
4. Fletch (and Fletch Lives)
5. One Crazy Summer.

SarcasticBimbo said...

Big Trouble in Little China and Escape from New York! Jack Burton and Snake Pliskin are two of the most badass characters of the 80s!

Half Domer Homer said...

Remember when movies were original and not re-do's and movies made from TV series and TV series made from movies, and live action versions of animated and animated versions from live action and female versions of male versions...etc

I love "Once Upon a Time in America", especially the section with the kid versions of the gangsters.

Also "The Right Stuff"

Count Jerkula said...

I wouldnt lie to you, Astra. Google Marilyn Chambers Soda Shop and click the porn hub link.

What happened to creativity in the movies? Is it just thinking the past was better and there are just as many good films today but I am just not seeing them? Or did the accountants take over and ruin everything? What modern movies will you stop and watch even though it is already half over when flicking through the channels?
