The movies i choose to watch are always dependent on the mood im in of course so thought i might like to get your thoughts on this. which movies do you watch when...
1. You really want to laugh with a few drinks
2. You want to revisit a memory associated with that movie (a place, a person, an event)
3. You want to be comforted because of a bad day, break up, gold fish died
4. You have a friend coming over who hasnt seen many 80s movies
5. Want to be reminded of first love, crushes and heart break

Here are mine

1. Ferris bueller
2. Ghostbusters / stand by me
3. The Goonies
4. Big Trouble in Little china
5. Dream a little dream

1. Caddyshack
2. Beetlejuice
3. Comfort and Joy (extremely underrated--check it out)
4. Manhunter
5. Body Heat

Great questions! If I thought about these tomorrow, I would have completely different answers. :-)

1. Drinks & Laughter - I'll agree with Crash regarding Caddyshack , but how about Weird Science . (Chet was a riot!!)

2. Movie Memories - Dirty Dancing (lost youth and Patrick Swayze)

3. Forgotten Birthday - Sixteen Candles (Long Duk Dong & Jake Ryan)

4. The 80's I never knew - Modern Girls followed by Night of the Comet (fashion, killer tunes, zombie makers, and Girls Just Want To Have Fun)

5. Romeo & Juliet 80's style - Valley Girl (the best soundtrack ever riding with Julie Richman to the Valley Sheraton)

Geez...i got a ton I can put for each catergory here..But I'll try to narrow it down to 1 each, these are gonna be very random picks..basically the first movies that come to mind:

1. Laugh & Drink:
Bachelor Party (I don't even think I need to justify this choice.)

2. Memories:
The Lost Boys (I happened to meet one of my first loves at a Drive-in that I also ha e fond memories of where this movie was playing..great memories involved with this movie.

3. Comforted because of bad day:
After Hours (No matter how bad a day/night I have...it can never come close to the Hellish night this guy in this movie has.

4. Friend wants a totally radical movie date:
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (What? You mean Keanu Reeves wasn't always an action hero...Who Knew?

5. Bringing on the Heartache:
Dirty Dancing (Everything about this movie stirs up painful memories for me...all the way to the last chime of the great soundtrack. There's a good reason why many believe this film to be the greatest "Date" movie of all time...But it also might very well be the greatest "Heartache" movie of all time too.

1. Laughs & Drinks: 16 Candles (Long Duk Dong and oily bohunks never disappoint [Smile] )

2. Memories: Ferris Bueller or Adventures in Babysitting (Ferris reminds me of my high school friends, Adventures reminds me of my childhood)

3. Comfort: Uncle Buck or a cheesy horror movie like Killer Klowns from Outer Space (horror movies are comforting to me when I'm in a bad mood, haha).

4. Non-80's friend: Fast Times or Valley Girl (both are hilarious and contain everything I love about the 80's).

5. First Love: Dirty Dancing (Patrick Swayze!)

1. Revenge of the Nerds

2. Weird Science or Police Academy (so many great, warm summer memories watching these)

3. Caddyshack (this movie always enhances my mood)

4. The Wraith or Death Wish III for my guy friends...and and for the ladies, well, I recently showed a female friend of mine the Blues Brothers. It was her very first time. I think she liked it but she didn't love it like I do. The Legend of Billie Jean is another one the ladies seem to like.

5. Urban Cowboy (what a downer of a movie lol. but great!)

1. You really want to laugh with a few drinks
It's always been Caddyshack for me!

2. You want to revisit a memory associated with that movie (a place, a person, an event)
Breakfast Club, reminds me of being back in High School, in fact our teacher made us watch it in school once!

3. You want to be comforted because of a bad day, break up, gold fish died
Big or Chirstmas Vacation


4. You have a friend coming over who hasnt seen many 80s movies
Probably Wall Street.

5. Want to be reminded of first love, crushes and heart break
Can't Buy Me Love!
