Anyone else ever in love with C. Thomas Howell? Remember him? I think I even wrote him a letter...my heart goes pitter-patter.

Always wondered myself. For some reason I thought it was his mom's name, whatever that may have been (by movie standards). Honestly though, I couldn't tell you. Maybe someone here knows.

I have been wondering this for about 20 years now. My friend and I watched this movie about a thousand times. I assume it's his mom's name, but no clue what he says.
Most of my faves have been mentioned, except one of my all time faves, Dead Poets Society.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Lost Boys!! The two Coreys were great, and Sean Patrick was SO hot.

Add anything with Arnie or Stallone.

I liked The Lost Boys, even though there were one or two scenes that made me want to puke (mostly the campfire at the beginning) and I'm not generally a vampire fan.

Goonies was good.
Footloose was good.

I like Dirty Dancing (my guilty pleasure) and Princess Bride (wonderful), but didn't discover either of them until the 80s were long over.

umm...

Red Dawn
The Outsiders

I can't think of anything else right now, and can't really remember what movies I love from the 80s vs. the 90s (I used to devour Swayze movies like candy - probably the only reason I can stand Dirty Dancing). But, in general, I like action movies the best, and the "classic" 80s comedy (Pretty in Pink, Weird Science, etc.) the least.

...and I'm not a dh.
Oh wow, I'd forgotten all about The Outsiders. I read the book and watched the film when I was around 13 yrs old. I cried so much.

Brilliant!

Say Anything - I : John Cusak

Pretty In Pink
Sixteen Candles
Dirty Dancing
Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi

Blade Runner - It's really timeless and so cutting-edge. So many sci-fi movies today that copy its imagery.

ET - Still get teary eyed over ET's departure

Children of a Lesser God - I love this film.

Normal is just a setting on your dryer.
