    What are the best movies from the 1980's?

    80's movies are great and I think some of the best actors ever were mostly in 1980's films.   I'd like to compile a list of some of the best ones.  Any type - horror, comedy, drama...

    I'm a product of the 80's. I'll go with The Goonies, Driving Miss Daisy, The Lost Boys, Stand By Me, and Evil Dead, although I could probably write a couple thousand words on the subject.

    People will probably criticise me for saying Pretty in Pink and Dirty Dancing, but bear in mind that I was a teenager in the 80's and these movies just take me back...

      I don't think people would criticize you because these are really good movies.  I've seen both a ton of times and could watch them over and over.

    I'd have to go with The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles (I'm a fan of Molly Ringwald), Tango and Cash, Ferris Beuller's Day Off, and Glory (I know...totally NOT a Molly Ringwald movie!)

    Many would probably say the Lost Boys, Police Acadamy, and the Back to the Future's but I'm not very fond of them. Cocktail, BeetleJuice, The Karate Kid, and of course Dirty Dancing are also big 80's movies!

    I'll go with Somewhere in Time starring Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymore.  The music is as good as the story.

    I think the best films from the 80's are Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars Episode V, ET, The Shining, and Airplane.

    For me it was:

    Movies: Empire Strikes Back and Poltergeist, Top Gun (Cruise, McGillis) and Platoon (Sheen, Dafoe, Berenger)

    TV - Miami Vice and the intro of MTV

    I would have to go with The Breakfast Club. Kids are still watching it and identifying with it.
