Subject: Best Nostalgic Films of the 80's

Written By: eightiesfan on 10/22/04 at 8:05 am

I like most of the films on this list, but I would go with Dirty Dancing and Stand by Me.  :)

I thought about putting The Big Chill on the list, too - I'm not sure if that counts or not since it took place in the present time, but the soundtrack has some cool songs from the 60's and 70's.

I agree. I did enjoy the others, but I voted on just the idea of what movie really had that sense of longing to go back to that time.

I should have put "La Bamba" on this list too - great film about the life of Richie Valens.

Hoosiers and Stand By Me, and I despised Dirty Dancing.

Another Vote for Stand by Me (go chompers go)

I voted for Hairspray (last movie of Divine's! Great performance, classic John Waters)

My third choice would be Dirty Dancing!

How about...

1. Back to the Future
2. A Christmas Story (it's hard to believe this movie was directed by the same person who did Porky's  :-[ )
3. Distant Voices, Still Lives

:)

DD and Stand By Me too.  Both are still today the most watchable films for me.

And for DD fans - check this out - www.dirtydancing.com.au it opens in November in Sydney.

I find it hard to fathom that the child actor from A Christmas Story who got his tongue frozen to the pole (Scott Schwartz) grew up to become a porn star.  :o

I saw a Hollywood kids documentary and he wasn't really a "star" but he did do some producing and was in 1 or 2.
