    That's one of my favorite movies

    What was that one with Corey Feldman and River Phoenix when they were really young...the Time of Our Lives or something? That was a good movie too.
    It was Stand By Me. I'm surprised no one has mentioned that one yet. It's hard for me to pick an absolute favorite 80's movie, but that's definately in my top 3.

    Some of my other favs are:
    Flashdance
    Footloose
    Fame
    Dirty Dancing
    The Goonies
    The Breakfast Club
    Sixteen Candles
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Back to the Future
    Top Gun
    Rain Man
    Heathers
    E.T.
    Airplane
    Caddyshack
    Adventures in Babysitting(I don't think anyone mentioned this one yet, I think it was around '86, I could be wrong. Maybe I was the only dork that saw it, or the only one that actually liked it. I watched it all the time when I was little, I still watch it every time it comes on "Take it back! Take back what you said about Thor!" It's a classic)

    You are so not alone. I loved this movie. Haven't seen it repeated lately though. Well, if it has been repeated I didn't know about it.

    Also, according to the IMDB , Adventures in Babysitting came out in 1987.

    I find myself saying this whenever possible: "Have fun stormin' the castle!" (but you have to screech like Carol Kane) from The Princess Bride. I like the looks I get.

    I didn't see anyone mention Blade Runner. In sort of the same vein, Brazil. Are your ducts old and out of style? And how about Arnold Schwartzenegger IS....The Running Man. No, not for governor of California. He runs around in a sadistic reality TV show. Lots of great Ahnold lines, like after sawing a biker in half with a chainsaw: "He had to split."

    When Harry Met Sally...but that is just my favorite movie of any decade

    Also loved Valley Girl, Big Chill, Princess Bride.

    Plus Caddyshack....clearly one of the greatest movies of all time.

    I can't get enough of Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles and St. Elmo's - if they are on I will watch them.

    What was that one with Corey Feldman and River Phoenix when they were really young...the Time of Our Lives or something? That was a good movie too.
    It was called "Stand by Me" Based on a Novella by Stephen King called "The Body" it's one of my fav's

    The Last Starfighter and Wargames.

    Now, I'm a computer technician who likes to play PC games.

    My childhood--and the entertainment from that period--didn't influence my adult life. At all.

    No. Really.

    The 80's movies rocked! I made sure I watch the movies since I'm born in the 80's itself.

    Sixteen Candles!
