Top Ten 80s Movies

One of my first post since rebooting OneTwentyOne was Top Ten Christian Movies, which had pretty good responses. So in honor of the two 80s remakes that are coming to theaters this weekend, The Karate Kid and A-Team. I have decided to create a Top Ten 80’s Movies list. I was born in 1988 and actually don’t remember anything about living in the 80’s but I did watch a lot of 80’s movies growing up. Leave comments sharing movies I might have left off or stating your list.

Honorable Mentions:

Howard the Duck, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Top Gun, Beverly Hill Cops,  Star Wars, Beatlejuice, Uncle Buck, The Shining, Nightmare on Elm Street, Short Circuit, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Robocop.

10. Clue

How can you not like a movie with three different endings?

9. Brewster’s millions

Great Duo of Richard Pyror and John Candy. How would you spend 30 million in 30 days?

7. E.T

I think famous quote “E.T. phone home”   along with E.T. Adventure, at Universal Studios helped place this movie on my list. Also features 7-year-old Drew Berrymore.

6. Ghostbusters 1&2

Who ya gonna call?

5. Charlie Sheen

Couldn’t pick just one Charlie Sheen movie so combined them all into one spot. Platoon, Red Dawn, Wall Street, Eight Men Out, and Major League (one of the best sports movies of all time but we will leave that for another list.)

4. Goonies

Classic? definitely. Who did not want to be a goonie?

3. The Karate Kid

“Wax on Wax off” This movie made everyone want to learn karate. Mr. Miyagi made this movie. Jackie Chan has a lot to live up to in the remake.

2. Breakfast Club

The jock, the nerd, the bullie, the popular girl and the wierd girl, it’s a classic.

1. Back to the Future Trilogy

The whole trilogy was great. Memorable characters, Memorable quotes, Cool car, Hoover board and predicted Florida would win the World Series before Florida even had a baseball team. Also had a great ride at Universal Studios.

    Hi there,
    Love anybody having 80s discussions!

    Almost did not read your list after seeing Howard the Duck as an honorable mention. Also, FYI, the first Star Wars was in the 70s with The Empire Strikes Back coming out in 1980.

    Like all of your top 10 pretty well, but mine would differ quite a bit. If you enjoy the 80s, please check out my site (called Kickin’ it Old School) often and follow us at Twitter @OldSchool80s
