This is when I get to talk about the movies I remember from my childhood. In the 1980s the film industry had a lot of material to work with. This was a time when a lot of movies were made with a “stick it to the Communists” mentality. This was captured in movies like Red Dawn, Reds, and The Killing Fields.

We fell in love with the underdog with movies like Footloose, and Glory. This was also a decade that started great franchises with movies like The Terminator, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Die Hard.

This was the decade where teen movies found a new home at the hands of directors like the legendary John Hughes. Among those great movies are Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, and Sixteen Candles.

It’s also important to remember the classic movies and great stars that came from the era. The 80s gave us movies like Raging Bull, Full Metal Jacket, The Shining, and Amadeus among many other timeless films. We got to know names like Tom Cruise, Oliver Stone, Michelle Pfieffer, and Penny Marshall.

I love the movies of the 80s. I guess growing up with these films makes me a bit biased, but it’s my right to be sentimental once in a while. Here are reviews I’ve done on some of the movies from this era:

Don’t for get about the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s1990s, 2000s, or 2010s!
