Those of us who grew up during the 80s, know and remember many great movies that were made during that time. Sometimes it seems that they don’t make them as wonderful as they used to. Here are some great eighties movies that stayed great, and are certainly worth watching even today.
Great Movies from the 80s
Kevin Bacon was and still is amazing. The songs still take, and the story is a classic one – the young rebel against the old conventions, the new guy is having a hard time being accepted, and the priest’s daughter is always the most naughty one on the block.
A great movie for computers-nostalgia lovers, general geeks and anyone who loves to hear Whoopy Goldberg curse like there’s no tomorrow. The cold war was never funnier.
One of the most romantic movies ever, with the wonderful Patrick Swayze, may he rest in peace. The songs are still thrilling, and the dancing is still amazing. Almost makes you wanna go and spend your summer at Kellerman’s.
Who didn’t want to learn Karate after watching this movie? Wax on, wax off, people. Karate for defense only!!!
A crazy movie with a crazy actor, about one of the greatest geniuses ever – Mozart. An ageless, funny and tragic story, that can still remind you how short life is.
The movie that still gives people the chills, even from 30 years away. Ever wander what’s lurking under YOUR house? And are you still scared of static on your TV set?
This one hardly needs an introduction. Who you gonna call?!

There is, according to Burlesque, a nightclub on the Sunset Strip that looks like a blend of Cabaret and Moulin Rouge andemploys a full contingent of dancers and musicians in the service of a neo-retro-burlesque-blues program.
Presiding over the craziness within is Tess, a grande dame who also performs occasionally and who could only, under these circumstances, be played by Cher. Entering the scene is a young leather-lunged hopeful from Iowa named Ali, played by Christina Aguilera in her movie-acting debut.
The vibe of this glitzy concoction is more Flashdance than Showgirls, despite prerelease predictions that the film would be a campfest of epic proportions. In fact, it’s more cornball than trashy. Ali hits most of the clichés of the genre: defying Tess’s skepticism by proving her mettle during an impromptu stage number; flirting with the nice-guy bartender (Cam Gigandet, of Twilight) whose home she shares for a while, in a purely platonic way, of course, just until she gets her feet on the ground; and keeping a wary eye on the high roller (Eric Dane, of Grey’s Anatomy) who wants to possess her, because, you see, he takes whatever he likes.
And did we mention that Tess is facing foreclosure on the club in a month’s time? Seriously, you didn’t see that coming? Writer-director Steve Antin has no embarrassment about putting any of this across, which may be why it all feels weirdly innocent, if relentlessly silly.
Stanley Tucci revives his gay assistant from The Devil Wears Prada, Alan Cumming lurks about in an undefined role that might well have been filmed months after everybody else, and Kristen Bell enjoys a few wicked-witch moments as Ali’s main rival. Aguilera, needless to say, belts out her songs as only someone with a very large voice can, and Cher stops the show with an old-fashioned torch song (“You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me”) that is clearly designed as a roof-raiser. (And, by gum, it works.) This is a ridiculous movie, but it gets points for never claiming to be anything else.
They all laughed at college nerd Mark Zuckerberg, whose idea for a social-networking site made him a billionaire. And they all laughed at the idea of a Facebook movie–except writer Aaron Sorkin and director David Fincher, merely two of the more extravagantly talented filmmakers around.
Sorkin and Fincher’s breathless picture, The Social Network, is a fast and witty creation myth about how Facebook grew from Zuckerberg’s insecure geek-at-Harvard days into a phenomenon with 500 million users. Sorkin frames the movie around two lawsuits aimed at the lofty but brilliant Zuckerberg (deftly played by Adventureland‘s Jesse Eisenberg): a claim that he stole the idea from Ivy League classmates, and a suit by his original, now slighted, business partner (Andrew Garfield).
The movie follows a familiar rise-and-fall pattern, with temptation in the form of a sunny California Beelzebub (an expert Justin Timberlake as former Napster founder Sean Parker) and an increasingly tangled legal mess. Emphasizing the legal morass gives Sorkin and Fincher a chance to explore how unsocial this social-networking business can be, although the irony seems a little facile.
More damagingly, the film steers away from the prickly figure of Zuckerberg in the latter stages–and yet Zuckerberg presents the most intriguing personality in the movie, even if the movie takes pains to make us understand his shortcomings. Fincher’s command of pacing and his eye for the clean spaces of Aughts-era America are bracing, and he can’t resist the technical trickery involved in turning actor Armie Hammer into privileged Harvard twins (Hammer is letter-perfect). Even with its flaws, The Social Network is a galloping piece of entertainment, a smart ride with smart people… who sometimes do dumb things.
Oh yeah, and did we mention that Jesse Eisenberg ROCKS?!
Children ages four and up can bring the excitement of the Iron Man 2 movie home with the Real Walking Iron Man action figure. Kids will love the wrist remote that lets them march Iron Man into imaginative battle and enjoy his humorous sound effects and glowing eyes and chest. And parents will love this toy’s durable design and battery-saving feature that ensure long-term play.
Using a wristwatch-style remote, your child can make Real Walking Iron Man march into action. His hips, knees, ankles, and feet articulate, and by pressing and holding the walk button, your child can make Iron Man take multiple bold strides. Iron Man also rotates at the waist and can raise his arms to fire missiles from his wrists. Missiles can also be deployed from Iron Man’s shoulder-launchers for added firing–and fun–options.
During play, Iron Man shouts lines like, “Let’s see what this suit can do.” Audio effects, such as the charging sound of a high-powered machine, add to the excitement this 12-inch action figure delivers.
With colors and contours modeled to match the suit in the movie, the Real Walking Iron Man will immediately capture your child’s attention. This Iron Man figure is durable and robust enough for most walking excursions thanks to its impact-resistant plastic design, stable wide base, and snap-on shoulder-launchers.
Iron Man’s handy sleep mode kicks in if he remains inactive for a few minutes, putting him into a partial shut-down state in order to conserve batteries. Just press his chest button to reawaken him for immediate play-time action.
