I started the list below: -The Breakfast Club -Pretty and Pink -Top Gun -Weird Science Please keep adding to it!

I can't believe no one thought about Ghostbusters. I think Days of Thunder is one of my favorites. Thanks for adding to the list.

The 80’s was a great decade for movies and a few I would recommend are: The Breakfast Club Footloose Back to the Future Weird Science Sixteen Candles Pretty in Pink Mask (The Eric Stoltz version) St Elmo’s Fire The Karate Kid Lethal Weapon Teenwolf Dirty Dancing Road House Cocktail Ferries Bueller’s Day Off Crossroads (Ralph Macchio version) Just a few of the many classics from that decade.

I reccomend the movie Wisdom, starring emleo esteevez, good movie. I like the part where emleo gets fired by his brother martin sheen. another movie is Troll, a lot of good actors in that movie that went on to make something of themselves. Sunny Bono's in it, too.
