Uhh, I'm confused. Since when are 80's fans concerned with quality?

And by the way, High Fidelity was complete garbage. I had more fun with Showgirls.

Top Five 80's Movies for People Who Love The 80's

1.)Karate Kid
2.)Thrashin'
3.)RAD
4.)Real Genius
5.)Over the Top

HA! You're wrong!

Rainman? Are you a retard?

Who's Officer Partridge??

My top fave 80's movies, though it's really hard to narrow down, would be (in no particular order):

1.The Neverending Story
2.Dream A Little Dream
3.Goonies
4.Hairspray
5.Heathers

(God, that was so hard to narrow down, there are so many greats that I love. Oh and Kash, I also like The Outsiders a lot too. Now that I live pretty close to where the film was made, I can sort of identify with the movie a lot more.When I lived in California, Oklahoma seemed a world away, but now I'm only about a 90 minute drive from Tulsa, and about a 5 minute drive from the state of Oklahoma. I like the Tulsa mall).

Never Ending Story was about as close as it comes to filming a dream,I kinda liked Heathers too Bridgette, but only coz I'm a Winnona Ryder fan, even though the head bitch who gets whacked with a cup o bleach was just so good, at being bad.

Hey Mina,

Welcome, and great new topic! And you're right, most of those dream guys could never exist in real life! Except for the Jon Cryer-type character in Pretty In Pink.I knew a guy in highschool named Randy who had such a big crush on me, and he acted a lot like Ducky.He was so annoying!!I couldn't stand him!He was one of those retro-punk rock guys who don't get the hint that you dont like them and follow you around anyways, haha.But it would still be cool to dream about a guy like Jeff Goldblum in "Earth Girls" coming true...

That's so true,Mina.I didn't mean to say that the character of Duckie was annoying, I meant that the guy that liked me,Randy, was annoying.I really liked Jon Cryer in his role in "Hiding Out". It's a very cute, funny, underrated 80's highschool flick.

He was in Morgan Stewart's Coming Home. The principal fromBreakfast Club was in it too. Really cheezy--but classic 80's.

In case you haven't seen them yet Mina, I've written pages for Hiding Out and Earth Girls Are Easy, so feel free to check those out(since you're a fan of Jeff Goldblum and Jon Cryer).

And Jon Cryer had a part in Superman 4, so you might want to check that out too.

Hey Mina,

Question about #5 on your list (from a man's perspective). Alan Ruck's character in Ferris (Cameron) existed all over the place. You just never really saw them because they didn't have someone like Ferris ruining their life for them in such a bizarre way. I know guys from my school that were just like Cameron - wanting to be daring and exciting, but never quite managing to go the whole way because they were overshadowed by someone more popular, more crazy, and more confident. However, I will grant you that none of them ever wrecked their father's prized ferrari by running it over a ravine!

Paul if that were true, I would have noticed! Believe me, I spent my teenage year looking for a Cameron of my very own!
Mina another one for your list should be Andrew McCarthy in St Elmo's Fire, he's so lovely, and the way he was about Ally Sheedy in that film was so sweet! Now I'm older, I'm still looking for a man like him!
P.S. Jon Cryer is in Hotshots as well!

Trust me, Jeannie, we were there - we just got very good at not being noticed by girls - and we so desperately wanted to be noticed by girls!!!!! (sob)
