Timeless '80s Movies

Well, school's finally out and there's bound to be a few rainy days over the next couple of months. Instead of watching those same old Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan movies, why not go back in time and check out what was popular in the '80s? We're going to make it easy for you by running down the most famous flicks of that decade, so grab your notepad and get ready to do some serious renting.

'80s Movies - Teen Movie King

Before there was She's All That or Whatever It Takes, John Hughes ruled over the '80s with movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Sixteen Candles. He turned actors like Matthew Broderick, Emilio Estevez, and Molly Ringwald into stars, and essentially invented what we now know as the teen movie. Shows like Dawson's Creek and Family Guy have used Hughes' movies in many of their storylines.

'80s Movies - Gonna Go Back In Time

If you enjoyed Ashton Kutcher's recent Butterfly Effect, you'll love Back to the Future - one of the best movies about time travel ever made. Starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, the film was so popular that it spawned two sequels and a Saturday morning cartoon!

'80s Movies - There's Excitement In The Air

Of course, it was in the '80s that action/adventure movies really began to take off - thanks mostly to Steven Spielberg's success with the Indiana Jones trilogy. Before Sean Astin became a hobbit in Lord of the Rings, he was one of The Goonies - a lively adventure from 1985 that has since become a cult favorite. And who could forget Tom Cruise's Top Gun or Bill Murray's Ghostbusters?

'80s Movies - The Saddest Music In The World

Maybe you're in the mood for a good cry. If that's the case, there's a couple of outstanding films from the '80s that'll have you bawling your eyes out. In 1982, Steven Spielberg introduced the world to an adorable little alien named E.T., which was only Drew Barrymore's fourth movie! Two of the decade's most well-known tear-jerkers are Terms of Endearment and Steel Magnolias (which features Julia Roberts before she hit it big with Pretty Woman!).
