Favourite classic 80's movie?

So, there’s been a wave of older movie mania on the forums of late, so let’s start a new discussion about classic 80’s movies. My personal favourite is “Pump up the volume”, but they’re all good in my book.

  • Pump up the volume
  • The Breakfast club
  • Better off dead
  • Ferris Buellers day off
  • Weird science

Feel free to add your own recommendations in a similar vibe too.

Edit: Okay, apparently I should’ve been clearer. I definitely think there are better 80’s movies than these around. These are movies that follow a certain theme. High schoolers coming of age/having life experiences ect. I was hoping that people could infer that from context. I wouldn’t put these movie next to sci fi from the same decade. It would be comparing apples and oranges. I’m glad the discussion got started though, and thanks for all the contributions.

I voted for Pump up the Volume because it has Samantha Mathis in it. :heart_eyes:

My actual favorite on that list is Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.


Not a single dud in your list. I want my two dollars. :rofl:

As for a movie made in the 80’s but not about the 80’s

Dark Crystal

If they re-boot that and ruin it, like they tend to do, I may find a company that I hate more than Scopely


Is that even possible?

I think the last decade has proven that they are well capable of ruining everything

actually you raise an interesting point

Scopely has only been ruining my life for a couple of years, while on the other hand actually give me some sense of satisfaction

going back into a persons childhood and destroying the things we once held sacred - that is a level of carnage that Scopely can only hope to aspire to

oh dear
I fear for the youngsters who have in recent years grown up on Walking Dead…
their souls will be crushed in a few decades from now >_<



Back to the Future, obviously :roll_eyes:


I agree that’s my personal favorite and don’t understand how this isn’t on the poll
