The Best 80s & 90s Movies

Picking the greatest movies of the 1980s & 1990s is no easy task. The 80s gave the world everything from The Shining to The Goonies to three Indiana Jones movies and no less than five Nightmare on Elm Street flicks. The final two chapters from the original Star Wars trilogy hit and “Weird Al” Yankovic made a little movie called UHF. Ah, and the 1990s – the decade that brought you indie-cinema breakouts and bullet-time blockbusters, fight clubs and foul-mouthed clerks, charismatic cannibal serial killers and “Choose Life!” sloganeering, Rushmore Academy overachievers and Royales with Cheese. Looking back on the movies that made these years such a surprisingly fertile period for filmmakers and film lovers worldwide.
