hey
Thanks for the welcome. I actually looked at his board a lot and finally decided to post. Trust me this is right up my alley lol Sorry but I've never seen valley girl. Actually I dont think I've seen any of the movies you mentioned. I watched a lot of the 80's teen comedys and horror movies. I'll have to check out valley girl though. I love nick cage. Also I started a yahoo group today all about he 80's I really need members to join and start talking. I also need some pics form the 80's. Hope some ppl here can help me out. Here's the link if anyone wants to join
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/theawesome80s/?yguid=135090711

Hey Brooke,
I joined your group, I added a couple pictures, I hope you know who they are, if you don't want them there you can delete them.

Valley Girl is one of my favorite movies, I put a picture of Deborah Foreman on there, she's in another one of my favorite 80's movies...

April Fool's Day...

those are great, and right up your alley with the type of movies you like.

Some others:

The Last American Virgin
Meatballs
Little Darlings
My Bodyguard
Breakin
Breakin 2-Electric Boogaloo
Zapped!
Angel


There are so many...I might have to come back and add some more, but you listed a bunch of great ones.

hey lisa
Thanks so much for joining my group. I hope I get more members so we can start talking. Thanks for the pics to. I knew who most of them are but not all of them. Its funny that you put zapped down cause i just bought that off ebay the other day. I can't wait to get it. That is a great cheesy 80's movie. Did you see the link I posted to the madonna outfit?? If not check it out. You wont believe what it is.

actually i just purchased monster squad on dvd last week. I got it off ebay for $8 and the quality is pretty good. It hasn't been officially released on dvd but if you are a big fan of the movie like me. Jump over to ebay and buy a copy. Its so worth it. I thought I was the only person who knew about this movie. Glad to see I'm not.

Kids fight Dracula, the Mummy, the Wolfman, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon to save humanity.

It's full of meta horror jokes and is certianly interesting even for adults. No one really "known" is in it.. well not that I know of. it rocks.

yes no big name actors are in it. It was made for kids but I know more adults that like it then kids. For those of you who have seen it did you know that the actor playing fat kid died in 1997 from phenomoun. I spelled that wrong. Very sad when I found that out. Isis check it out. I really think you will like it. It has ryan lambert in it who was on the hit show kids incorporated in the 80's Man I loved that show. I use to drive my mom crazy watching it and singing all the songs from it. Luckly I found someone selling the dvds on ebay. Hehe I'm happy now.

I like Fresh Horses only because i knew some of the extras and it was made in Cincinnati. but seriously St. Elmos Fire and Ferris Beuler's day off are my favorite it takes me back to my youth. Any remember 3 O'Clock High a very cool movie not popular but I think it is good.

Adding Fairytale_17, Prettyinpink & 80's Freak's choices would pretty much cover all of mine. Of course, my favourite amongst favourites is still Girls Just Want to Have Fun! I can't believe I've seen every movie listed here. Does that make me enducated or just sad. [Smile]
