They just showed The Goonies at the movie theater in my town a couple weeks ago. Of coarse I didn't find out until after it was over. That and The Labyrinth are my all time favorite movies.

hmm...there are movies I enjoy that just happened to be released in the 80s, but if you mean ones that have a definite 80's flair, I'd go with:



The Breakfast Club

Back to the Future #1 (the rest are just silly )

Adventures in Babysitting

Say Anything

Wargames

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Heathers

Ghostbusters

E.T.

Sheena, Queen of the Jungle!!! I love you Wonderrandy. Everyone hates that movie for some reason. I just rented Sixteen Candles for the 80th time..and The Breakfast Club! "let's get the prom queen pregnant.."



but Sheena, Queen of the Jungle.

Are these movies we still like or movies we liked in the 80s? Cause if the latter I'd have to go with the Care Bears movies.



If the former then I'd name a bunch that's already been named (The Princess Bridge, Adventures in Babysitting, etc.)



ETA: How about Fievel, An American Tale. That was the first movie I ever saw in a movie theatre!

Well, now that goes without saying. It's *inconceivable* that someone could not enjoy this movie.

Jen, you use that word often, but I do not think it means what you think it means.

Oooohhh I love the 80's (except the clothes)...



Goonies - I promise I WILL move to Astoria at some point in my life.



Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark- I became an archaeologist because of this flick. Oh and Harrison makes me cream...



Romancing the Stone - *embarrassed to admit this*



Witches of Eastwick- I love their friendship, not to mention it makes me wanna be a witch too!



Jumpin' Jack Flash- "I'm a little black woman in a big silver box. HELP!" Cracks me up every time.
