I know an excessive amount about films from the ’80s. They are the ones burned into my brain because that was during my pre-teen and teenage years. Very impressionable. IMDb.com has a list of the Best ’80s movies. I have seen 192 of the 252 listed. The ones I haven’t seen are mostly animation and sci-fi.
Here are clips from some of my favorite ’80s flicks:
He’ll always be Alex P. Keaton to me
Spike Lee’s cast was filled with talent
The prom scenes are classic #AndieandDuckieforever
Some little known facts…
- Highland Park, Illinois is where most of the famous ’80s films were filmed…such as The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles, Weird Science and Ordinary People.
- E.T.‘s face was modeled after poet Carl Sandburg and Albert Einstein.
- When Turbo (played by black actor Michael “Boogaloo Shrimp” Chambers) falls down the stairs in Breakin’ and gets hurt, you can catch the stuntman replacement because he is white.
