This is just a silly question that has absolutely nothing to do with anything lol

What do you think was the best film of the 80's?

My little years were in the 80's so therefore all the sorts of films I watched were all the fantasy ones that were around at the time.

My ultimate favourites are:
1. The Goonies
2. Labrynth
3. The Never Ending Story

However, I absolutely LOVE The Lost Boys (I watched that when I was a bit older as I was a bit too young to watch a film about vampires), that film is just brilliant!

There are so many more i.e Legend, Time Bandits, Return to Oz with the wheelie men, they were scarey :Scared:

Kids films just aren't what they used to be :sad:

Weird Science was a classic too.

Porkeys (not for the kids).

E.T was the classic 80's film.

Ditto to your Goonies, Labrynth, Never Ending Story (lovin' your avatar btw), Return to Oz (what was the name of the robot in it, I loved him and the chicken!!) + Lost Boys!

Absolutely loved Footloose, I love Kevin Bacon still to this day!:hug

God Im editing faster than anything here, all the good un's are coming back to me! Loved Supergirl and Gremlins! When Gizmo is singing in his little cage, sounds so cute!!

Plus David Bowie in Labrynth was fit!! Loved his hair and leggings!!

Ferris Bueller's Day Off! probably my favourite film EVER. And what about The Breakfast Club, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and pretty much anything with John Cusack?

Was gutted that Kevin Bacon didnt do the dancing in footloose!!!

Flashdance was a good'un - had the soundtrack which was great.


Oh and John Cusack film was ' Sure thing' with that woman out of desperate housewives being the sure thing.

What about my step mothers an alien and 91/2 weeks and Blind date (all Kim Basinger films)


Mannequin.

Breakdance 1 and 2.

Rocky 4 (the best ever rocky film imo)

The robot in Return to Oz was Tick Tock if I remember correctly.
I was going to say about David Bowie in tights/leggins but didn't know if I was going to appear a bit odd - glad I'm not the only one lol.

My chinchilla is called Gizmo!

Y'know they were selling The Breakfast club in Tesco's for £3-5 not so long ago, not sure if the still do?

I remember Ferris Buellers Day Off, again prob watched it when I was a bit older.

Indiana Jones? They were good

ET-can't believe I left that out :smack:
