O/T but what was the name that the little boy yells at the end? The name her gave the princess? I've watched the movie a dozen times (love it) and I can never catch the name.
I love the ones I bolded. The only movie with Molly Ringwald in it that I could stand was The Breakfast Club (possibly my favourite 80s movie of them all).
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.
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.
