10 Movies You Can Watch On Netflix To Remind Yourself Why The '80s Were The Best Decade

- 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.

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's


'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent


Where Are The Cast Members From 'A League Of Their Own' Now?

A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else. Between Geena Davis's confident Dotti Hinson, and Tom Hanks's cranky Jimmy Dugan, the movie was irresistible. Every character was well-developed and brought something to the movie, and together they told a story that touched a lot of hearts. It has been over 25 years since A League Of Their Own


The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
