Top Ten Lists of Eighties Movies
The concept is pretty easily, pick your ten favorite movies from the eighties. The hard part? I want JUST movies from the eighties, not movies you might have seen during the eighties. Also, try and avoid movies that came out after the eighties if possible, 1990 is pretty borderline, I won't scream too loudly if you add one that is from then...

(the snobs against the slobs) Bill Murray and Chevy Chase in the same movie is heaven to me.
- 9. National Lampoons: Vacation
My dad looks cool compaired to Chevy Chase.

- 6. G Som I Gemenskap
Swedish movie that makes every swede born in the late 60s early 70s piss their pants of joy. Only swedish teen-classic.
- 5. Top Gun
Goose death still makes me cry. It is the best airplane movie ever and Tom Cruise is an ace at both flying and acting.
- 4. Cant Buy Me Love
Best teenage commedy ever? Allot of late movies is based on this "masterpice"
- 3. Stand By Me
It is not often the movie is better than the book.. never ever when it comes to Steven King, but this movie might just be the ONE.
- 2. Batman
Often forgotten, but when it came it was huge and it might be the only really good superhero movie.
- 1. Breakfast Club
It's an alltime classic. Makes all movies today look more or less like crap. "-Can I eat?, -I dont know, try?!"
Yes.. Fletch, Lost Boys, Goonies and all the nerdmovies allmost made it to the list
