- Page 1

The 80s had plenty of classic movies that we love to this day, but sometimes it can be a pain to track them down. This is especially true if all you ever had was a VHS copy of it, but thankfully Netflix often has you covered, especially in the case of these 12 classics.

Big Trouble In Little China

The adventures of Jack Burton, Wang Chi and Gracie Law are so awesome we wrote an entire article about them! This movie is everything great about 80s action movies, and you need to watch it immediately.

The Princess Bride

The classic story of adventure, courage, and true love is one of the best even to this day, and the fact that it's just readily available for everyone to watch is perfect.

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

The heartwarming tale of a young boy's unconditional love for his alien friend, Steven Spielberg's classic family movie has stayed awesome for over 30 years, and you owe it to yourself to watch it again.

The Thin Blue Line

A documentary about a man wrongfully accused of murder that was so effective it actually got him pardoned, The Thin Blue Line is a masterpiece of documentary filmmaking. Extra points for the awesome Philip Glass soundtrack.

A Nightmare On Elm Street

Wes Craven's 1984 horror film introduced the world to one of the most iconic and terrifying horror villains of all time; the dream-diving Freddy Krueger. The franchise has its highs and lows, but the original is just as scary as it ever was.

Seriously, the rest of these are just as awesome.
