8 Movies From The 80's That Will Make You Cry

Here are some 80s films that you may have missed, or made your list. No matter what, you will thank me for this.

8 Movies From The 80's That Will Make You Cry

Tear-jerkers, comedy, some films with truth, and some with proof.

1. Terms Of Endearment (1983)

My favorite movie of all time. Debra Winger gives an amazing performance as the daughter who had not listened to her mama, getting into a marriage that did not go in the direction she anticipated.

She always goes back to her mother, no matter where she is. Shirley Maclaine kills her performance as always being there for her only daughter. Lessons learned, and no more fighting. You will cry, I guarantee.

2. At Close Range (1986)

Here, Sean Penn plays a boy named Brad. He is the favored son in his family and the hardest working. When his father (Christopher Walken) organizes a crime gang for both brothers, that is where the problems arise.

Please watch it if you had not already. Mary Stuart Masterson plays Brad Whitewood's girlfriend. Make sure you have the tissues ready. Oh, and this is based on a true story.

3. The Accused (1988)

Jodie Foster is just on fire in her role of Sarah Tobias, a victim who was brutally raped by three men in a bar, provoked by many more men in the bar.

This whole movie is difficult to watch. My suggestion is to view it as f*cked up, as it should be. Academy Award goes to Jodie Foster, hands down.

4. Some Kind Of Wonderful (1987)

Mary Stuart Masterson and Eric Stoltz play the bestest of friends. Little did Stoltz's character know anything about how much he meant to her.

Sad thing is, just the ending. Don't click if you hate spoilers.

5. Beaches (1988)

I always wished I had a pen pal and a fan from the start.

Never would I wish to lose that person either because it would totally break my heart.

6. Steel Magnolias (1989)

A Southern community of women find themselves into new discoveries, friendships, and upsetting decisions that we just cannot control.

Shout out to Sally Field, Dolly Parton, Daryl Hannah, Shirley Maclaine, and last (NEVER LEAST), Julia Roberts. Amen....

7. Ghost (1990)

Of course, you probably have heard of this movie.

All I am saying is this movie gets me everytime.

8. Fried Green Tomatoes (1991)

She's the best friend I've ever had, and I love her.

Talk about a movie with friendships, this is just a sad story all in one. There is not a single scene where you should not feel the need to blow your nose.

I know I have missed many sad movies. However, these are just some that I would like to share with you! Hope you like them! XOXO

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
