Thursday Thirteen #110 – 80′s Flicks


I haven’t felt very good for the last week, so I cheated for this TT and went to the archives and dug this one up… )

1. The Abyss

I love this movie! Special effects were pretty good for the 80′s! One of my favorite quotes:
Virgil: When you’re hanging on by your fingernails, you can’t go waving your arms around.

2. An Officer And A Gentleman


One of the best romantic movies of all time! Richard Gere looks great in that uniform! And who will ever forget this line…
Lynette: Way to go, Paula! Way to go!

3. The Breakfast Club

One of the best movies, ever! John Hughes captured high school life to the tee!
Great lines in this movie, hard to find just one…but this one is great!
John Bender: Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.

4. Dirty Dancing

Love, love, love this movie!! Makes me wanna dance! )
Johnny: Nobody puts Baby in a corner.

5. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Who wouldn’t have loved to have a friend like Ferris?
Ferris: Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.

6. Flashdance

This movie had me cutting every sweatshirt I owned!
Nick: When you give up your dream, you die.

7. Footloose

Kevin Bacon dancing in a barn….how sweet is that?
Ren: Hey, hey! What’s this I see? I thought this was a party. LET’S DANCE!

8. The Karate Kid

One of the feel good movies that went on to continue in parts 2, and 3! I would have liked to have known a Mr. Miyagi.
Daniel: Wouldn’t a fly swatter be easier?
Miyagi: Man who catch fly with chopstick accomplish anything.
Daniel: Ever catch one?
Miyagi: Not yet.

9. The Outsiders

I loved the book, read it in jr high, but the movie, now that was great! Young Swayze, Cruise (before he went nuts), Matt Dillion, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, they did an excellent job!
Ponyboy: When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman, and a ride home

10. Pretty In Pink

Love this movie! Duckie is my favorite! So many great lines, hard to choose, but I will….
Duckie: You know what an older women does for me?
Iona: Changes your diapers?
Duckie: Touché.

11. Sixteen Candles

Molly Ringwald, again….she kinda disappeared after these films, but she was Hughes favorite, wasn’t she? Love this movie, another one that makes me remember my teen years!
The Geek: I mean, not many girls in contemporary American society today would give their underwear to help a geek like me.

12. St. Elmo’s Fire

Great cast, good movie!!
Kevin: Never trust a woman who says she isn’t angry.

13. Top Gun
One of the great ones of the 80′s. Of course this is when Tom was BC (before crazy), and tell me, who doesn’t love a guy in uniform!
Maverick: I feel the need…
Maverick, Goose: …the need for speed!

    I enjoyed Officer & Gentleman, but when I finally got round to seeing Top Gun, sometime in the 1990s, I found it rather unpleasant.

    Recently, 40 80s movies were re-issued on DVDs with the header “I Love the 80s.” Can you believe Breakfast Club was NOT one of them? I couldn’t believe it.
