This weekend I was bored so I watched all the movies I had. Okay maybe not all of them but I watched alot. It was after watching "The Breakfast Club" that I realzied that it was a timeless movie. Anyone could relate to it in any time period. I went to high school in the 90's and still could relate to everything that was going on in the movie. I was the female version of Anthony Micheal Hall and a little bit of Ally Sheedy all rapped up in one. I know nothing has changed because my sister is a senior this year and is dealing with the same stuff they did (except she is Molly Ringwald). Nothing has changed. What do you guys think??? is it not the most timeless movie??? If not what other movies can still stand the test of time. I think if it was made in the 70's or even the 50's you still have those cliques of people.

Rebel w/out a Cause is timeless...I'm sure there is no need to explain why.

I agree on the Breakfast Club! This movie is absolutely timeless, and it applies anywhere in the world.
Talking about the bratpack, I think St. Elmo's Fire is another one of those movies that protrays problems anyone goes through at a specific age.
I remember feeling kind of lost after university! [Smile]

I love Stand By Me, thats a timeless classic in my book. Most coming of age films are timeless because we can all relate. Even if you grow up there's some other kid waiting to enjoy them. Thats what makes them timeless. But most of the time we still like them even as adults.

Ali, ur absolutley correct! Despite the fact that the movie was made in 86, Stand By Me is my all time fav of my all time favs. I saw it for the first time about a year and a half ago, now I'm a Stand By me junkie. I make my friends watch it w/ me...now they're hooked too. I'm surprised that more of my peers haven't even heard of it. We are frustrated.

"Who Framed Roger Rabbit"...

Nobody I know can find a bad thing to say about this movie. When even the people on "I Love The 80s Strikes Back" state their admiration with a minimum of joking, you know you have a timeless movie on your hands.

Sincerely,

I think when you have a movie about life in general, whether it is about children or adults, its timeless, because like the person said, the same things are happening now that happened 20 or 30 years ago. When I was in high school, I remember cliques and groups and when I see movies like Breakfast Club or Pretty in Pink or even Ferris Bueller's Day Off, I have to laugh, because I knew mostly all of those character portrayed in those movies at one time or another..

You know I feel that if I make it to 90 years old, I will still love the films mentioned in this post. They can absolutely not ever get old for me. I loved the chemistry in Stand By Me, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

I would say the Princess Bride, classic and timeless. Would be just as good if it came out today. I've never heard anythig bad about it. Surprised there was no sequel, but kind of glad too.

I second that Riptide..Princess Bride is a timeless movie for all ages..

And no sequel either..its too much of a classic to defile that way.

i think stand by me and breakfast club are timeless! wow riverphoenix_4_life, i can't believe you only saw stand by me for the first time last year. i remember i saw it when i was really little, and it became known to me as the leech movie. lol. the last line in that movie about not having friends again like the ones you had when you were twelve is totally true! when i was about 14 i was thinking about that line, and i've never had friends like i had when i was twelve again.....but then again who does?

I think E.T is a great timeless classic, and Ghostbusters and Gremlins. I never could make it through all of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, cause that Rabbit's voice made me cringe...and I never liked Princess Bride either..and everyone in my family loved it, I made it through it, but I couldn't understand the way people loved it-it's like Willow those same people loved it, and I hated it. I love Flash Gordon though-I think it's timeless. There are some major movies of the 80's..like Romancing the Stone, that I never could get in to-but I loved Micahel Douglas and Kathleen Turner in War of the Roses. There has to be a certain whole chemistry thing working for me, visually, and between the characters, and there has to be a cool story line, that semi makes sense. Like the first Rambo-First Blood was really a good story-but the sequels, I couldn't make it through them. I could never stand the Look Who's Talking Movies either-those drove me crazy.
