80’s Movies I Love

I’ve had a lot of down time in the last few months, as many of you know.  This has led me to watch a lot of tv, which has included a lot of movies.  The other day I watched Vision Quest, a film I hadn’t seen in a long long time.  I like it, in a sort of cheesy way.  Because really, who couldn’t like a character name like Loudon Swain.  Classic.  The viewing of this particular film got me thinking about other 80’s movies I really like.  It was a big time for me… graduated from high school in ’83 and from college in ’88.

The following are a collection of twenty something films from the 80’s I’m a fan of.  I didn’t include too many super well known films, including some of my favorites, but that’s because those are on every list.  These are, some of them, a little lesser known.  Others you will know right away, but either way… I love these films.  Nothing like spending an afternoon watching one of these.   Some may be a tad cheesy, but then that’s part of their appeal.  Enjoy….
