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

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
