    Favorite 80's movies

    Yo...just thought it would be fun to see a list of your favorite 80's movies..I've seen all the new releases at the video store lately and I'm reachin' back in time to the good 'ol parachute pants days.

    Toss in your favorite scene or quote from that movie as well.

    Some of my favorites:
    Midnight Run with Robert Deniro and Charles Grodin (fantastic plot, and very funny) "What do you think of some of those chickens? Hmm?" D: "yeah, there were a couple I woulda taken a shot at..."

    CG: "You have only two expressions...silence...and rage."

    When Harry Met Sally: easy choice. "Oh..but Baby Fishmouth is sweeping the nation?"
    "If you're like me, you have a 'been there, done that' attitude when it comes to paleolithic paleontology." - Jon Stewart

    "I swear, you are the ho-ho ho." - OTS

    I LOVED Amadeus, Tom Hulce was hysterical and moving in that movie.
    But Michael Keaton was priceless when he was stuck home with the kids and he iron his son a grilled cheese sandwich. Now you are making me want MY "wookie"!! *lol*
    Happy moments, praise God. Difficult moments, seek God. Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God

    The 80's had so many movies that I loved! I'll just name my two favorites though:

    "16 Candles" & "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"

    They can always put me in a good mood when I'm feeling down.
