Category Archives: 1980’s Best Movies

When you think of the ’80s, a few images come to mind: shoulder pads, big hair, and all-cheesy-everything. However, the decade had more to contribute to pop culture than being known as the New Jersey of the 20th century. It was also an era for incredible classic movies, ones that shifted the film industry as we know it. From John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club to Steven Spielberg’s E.T., the movies of the 1980’s not only shaped its generation, but inspired subsequent generations in every way imaginable.

Porky’s (1981)

Porky’s Quote: “This boy is deformed!” – Cherry Forever

Surprise: We kinda liked Porky’s. Also surprise: It’s wasn’t because of boobs (hardly any, actually) or jokes (so many bad ones). The 1981 Canadian-American teen sex comedy actually had some depth to it, dealing with child abuse, misogyny, racism, and possibly the fallout of war. Seriously!

Ghostbusters (1984)

Ghostbusters Quote: “Egon, this reminds me of the time you tried to drill a hole through your head. Remember that? – Dr. Peter Venkman

If someone told you “Ghostbusters” was every bit as bad as “Rambo: First Blood Part II,” you’d tell him he was crazy. Consider us criminally insane. This iconic ’80s classic starring Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver sparked our imaginations and made proton packs a household name, but the years have not been kind.

Back to The Future (1985)

Back to The Future Quote: “Don’t worry. As long as you hit that wire with the connecting hook at precisely eighty-eight miles per hour the instant the lightning strikes the tower… everything will be fine.” – Dr. Emmett Brown

In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the ’50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he’ll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.
