So I wanted to post 80s movies that we think are awesome. The ones we grew up with that seeded everything else that we have seen since. It has come to my attention that the new generation is not exactly aware of the awesomeness that is 80s cinema. Mistakes were made, sure, but over all.....the 80s has produced some FANTASTIC movies.

List them here with a brief synopsis as well as release date. No spoilers of course, but you can say why you liked the crap out of it!

My first is: FIRE FOX 1982

I just rewatched this. What a great cold war movie. Russia builds a new game changing jet, and Clint eastwood is the man to jack it! Its kind of weird how this jet in the movie is like the F-22 F/35 of reality in our modern world. So many similarities. Once you see it you will see what I mean. The movie is ripe with suspense. Its well thought out and surprisingly well made for its time.

Check it out.

So thats this thread. GIve the millennials a dose of good film history they may have missed. Its not just for them though, lets just bring back the goodies from bygone eras. The stuff we grew up with.

Enjoy! I will post a movie a week at least.

Nice thread...I'm all over this one.

Trading Places

WarGames

Clockwork Orange (From the 70's actually. But it's really good.)

Spies Like Us

DragonSlayer

Those are just some quick ones...I'll be back with more good ones soon.

The gods must be crazy.

A Coke bottle is thrown out of an airplane, it is discovered by an aboriginal tribe who is never seen anything like it. They find multiple uses for the Coke bottle and it brings jealousy to the tribe something they have never felt before. So they assign Warrior to go to the end of the earth and throw it off.

It's a documentary style movie and it really shows some of the culture clash between the modern an old world. You watch about 10 minutes of it thinking what the hell, then you'll laugh hysterically through the whole movie.


My honorable mention is Raising Arizona!

One of my favorites is a 1980 movie called (Nine to Five) starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton. It is a comedy but make ssome really good points about working for a boss who is a bigot, very egotistical and sexist.

In the work force I worked for such a boss at one time.

This comedy is very witty and will keep you laughing.

80s was an excellent decade for movies.

Aliens

The Lost Boys

The Fog

But I think one of the absolute greatest films from the 80s that must be seen by all my fellow Millenials is...

THE MONSTER SQUAD

I watched that one recently (I was on a Lily Tomlin kick) and it was really quite eye-opening. Made me appreciate the fact that I'm not a glorified coffee-fetcher.
