There is some Weird Science that goes on in the livestock industry. But back in the 80s, Weird Science was a hit movie with a hot chick in it. Remember her, hunh…yep, Kelly LeBrock. There were a bunch of other 80s movies that have become somewhat obscure, but I still stop the channel surfing when I see these flicks on the tube. Some were huge hits. Some, not so much.
There were huge hits like The Breakfast Club, The Blues Brothers, Pretty in Pink, Caddyshack and Ghostbusters. What about St. Elmo’s Fire?
Bull Durham and Major League came out in the 80s.
Sure, we all remember Back to the Future but what about Michael J. Fox in TeenWolf and the Secret of My Success (Ohhh, yeahh!!)
Spaceballs “May the schwartz be with you.”
Beverly Hills Cop
Honey, I shrunk the kids
Strange Brew–“Eh, Hoser.”
Youngblood–hockey movie that had Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and Keanu Reeves. I remember parts of this movie vividly.
Karate Kid–iconic–Who doesn’t remember Wax on-Wax off?
Conan the Barbarian & Terminator made the Arnold a household name.
First Blood–(very few remember the name of the movie but most remember the name of the main character in this series–Rambo)
No Way Out
Spies Like Us–Chevy Chase and Dan Akroyd–pretty good flick where the heroes saved the world.
Police Academy–remember the dude that made all of the sounds.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil & Stir Crazy–Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. Of course, Gene Wilder’s best two parts were in Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles.
Back to School–Rodney Dangerfield, “Oh?! You’re an English lit. major. Maybe you can help me straighten out my Longfellow.”
World According to Garp–way twisted Robin Williams movie that I like, a lot.
Caveman–Absolute retarded movie that always puts me in a good mood. However, if you’re going to name your daughter Launa, shoudn’t her twin be named either Attuk or Tonda?
Yes, I know that there wasn’t much to learn from reading this blog. I just hope that as you read through it, you remembered some parts of these movies and cracked a smile. I even laughed out loud just typing several of these titles. Nostalgia is not a bad thing. I need to go watch Rocky IV. That movie makes me want to work out. Obviously, I haven’t watched it much lately.
