    Default Totally Awesome Awful 80's Movies!!!

    I've already made a thread about how I love older horror flicks, but I was wondering how many people like old 80's comedies and dramas...like John Hughes, of course, but going back even further to things like Valley Girl , Fast Times at Ridgemont High and this classic

    ^ Better Off Dead was great!

    Hmm... A few that come to mind are:

    Brazil
    Adventures in Babysitting
    Killer Klowns From Outer Space
    The Lost Boys
    Flatliners
    Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

    That's a start.

    Gawd, I think I've seen everything listed here so far.

    Most of them have some appeal, even if they are as campy as all-get-out.

    I remember liking:
    Better Off Dead (and any other John Cusack movie from that time)
    Sixteen Candles
    Pretty in Pink
    Flatliners
    Repo Man
    Toxic Avenger
    Red Dawn
    Brazil
    Mystic Pizza
    Fast Times
    Sex, Lies, and Videotape
    Mannequin
    Buckaroo Bonzai
    Big
    Labyrinth
    Dirty Dancing
    Ghost
    Commando
    Predator

    I only saw part of Surf Nazis Must Die, I left when one of them bit a chunk out of someone else's face... dumb.


    I still watch Flatliners, Brazil, and Big.
    On occasion I will even watch Red Dawn.

    There are movies I really like, like Back to the Future, but I don't know whether to bring that one up here. When someone tossed in Brazil... well, I don't consider that an "awful" 80's movie in the same vein as Mannequin, for example. Same thing with Raising Arizona.. another definitive 80's pic but not "awful" despite the camp.

    Again, that's a GOOD movie from the 80's...

    I'm not sure what goes on this list.

    Yeah, I missed the word "Awful".

    Weird Science might make sense then.

    And, along those lines, I would have to say these movies were actually good. I liked all three a lot.

    Dirty Dancing
    Ghost
    Predator

    This movie is not awful. Julia Roberts (hopelessly miscast) somehow ended up in it , but she's not in many scenes and is easy to ignore.

    Satisfaction Trailer (1988)



    And there isn't a torrent anywhere.
    Bellison uncorked a flood of horrible profanity, which, translated, meant, "This is extremely unusual."

    You can never forget John Cusack holding up that boom box.
