Top 10 Movies from the 80's

Top 10 Reasons Why Movies from the 80s Totally Rock
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

It's a freebie week!  I usually head to the movies on freebie weeks, because as much as I love to read, I LOVE getting lost in a good movie.  I love to talk about my favorites.  I love arguing about who made the best Batman or whether not Die Hard should be considered a Christmas Movie.  I love movie trailers and playing six degrees of separation.  The movies don't always get it right (especially when it comes to the books-to-movie craze), but sometimes they do, and in the 80s, they so often got it very, very right.

If you were to ask me to list my favorite movies of all time (which I'm more than happy to sit down and have that conversation with you :), 90% of them hail from the good old 1980s.  Picking just ten was extremely hard, but I managed.

What's on your list?


1) Sixteen Candles

2) The Princess Bride
3) The Goonies
4) Back to the Future

5) Ghostbusters

6) Willow
7) Clue

8) Labyrinth

9) Bull Durham

10) Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

But let's not forget Ladyhawke and Field of Dreams and Beetlejuice and Terminator and Ferris Bueller.  Yeah.  I'll stop there so I don't drive you away, but people, I'm always up for an 80s movie night - with themed snacks of course.

Happy reading (and watching!)!
