We all know the usual 80s movies that air on daytime television, like "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "Sixteen Candles" and "Goonies". What about all the other classics? Make a list, and have a marathon! Trust me, your parents will thank me for this one. Enjoy the movies and their associated gifs!
1. The Breakfast Club
How could I not make this number one? After watching this movie, you may just want to land yourself a detention to see if you'll have as memorable a Saturday as these five teenagers did.
2. Pretty in Pink
As an alternative to the favorite "Sixteen Candles", Molly Ringwald wins our hearts over in this class '80s film. No other movie male comes close to the Duckman.
3. Back to the Future
If you haven't seen all three of this movie franchise, you need to seriously get your life together. Marty McFly never gets old.
Absolute classic. No offense ladies, no one will ever be able to top this cast dynamic. Akroyd, Murray, Ramis, and Hudson, not to mention Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts? Truly beautiful.
6. The Princess Bride
This is one of the most iconic films of all time. The tactical brilliance of the script alone is enough to keep fans coming back for more. This movie takes chivalry to a whole new level.
7. Raiders of the Lost Ark
Really all the Indiana Jones films are grade A, but Harrison Ford is the best. Who else gets to say they've played two of the most iconic characters in two major film franchises?
8. Fast Times at Ridgemont High
9. The Lost Boys
Even if you only watch it once, Winona Ryder and Christian Slater are crazy-amazing.
12. Weird Science
Sometimes it bewilders to find that so many people have never seen this film. Not only is there the fantastic track by wonderful one-hit-wonder-band "Oingo Boingo" but also, there is a hot supermodel, a biker gang and bullies who learn their place. What's not to love?
13. St. Elmo's Fire
Similar to The Breakfast Club, you may wish to have a crazy group of unstable friends like in this movie. Featuring more members of the Brat Pack, Emilio Estevez returns for us and we get to enjoy Rob Lowe in several tank tops.
14. Return of the Jedi
Again, all the Star Wars Movies are gems, but this one is a particular favorite.
15. Who Framed Roger Rabbit
With all the makings of a children's film, this movie actually has several adult tones. Jessica Rabbit really changed the game.
17. Adventures in Babysitting
19. One Crazy Summer
20. Real Genius
21. Weekend at Bernie's
22. Dirty Dancing
23. Good Morning, Vietnam
24. The Blues Brothers
26. Dead Poets Society
Trigger warning for this one. If you can handle it, don't forget the tissues. Brilliance and tragedy often go hand in hand.
27. Flash Gordon
There are some movies you may not understand on this list. Lump this one in with "Xanadu".
28. Grease 2
Way better than the first one, in my truly honest opinion.
29. The Sure Thing
I broke the John Cusack rule, but also, I will never stop equating the name 'Elliot' with 'the kid who eats paste'.
30. Valley Girl
For the love of Nicholas Cage, watch this movie.
Bill Murray and Harold Ramis, back at it again.
32. Some Kind of Wonderful
33. Girls Just Want to Have Fun
Sarah Jessica Parker and Helen Hunt? Sign me up.
34. Cannonball Run
Lump this in with "Caddyshack" and the "Blues Brothers", because the cast in all these films is amazing.
35. Heaven Help Us
A bunch of prep-school boys and a love story. Andrew Mccarthy makes a return once again. Also, young Patrick Dempsey.
This is more of a spin on the Christmas tale but is the best rendition.
38. Planes, Trains and Automobiles
39. Die Hard
40. Coming to America
I had to put Eddie Murphy on this list.
