-Heathers

Favorite movie of the decade.  Filed next to "Blazing Saddles" in my "List of movies that cannot be made today without everyone involved getting sued". 

Gonna add War Games to the list of canonical 80s movies.

Apparently, the Bonfire of the Vanities movie wasn't all that great, though the book was supposedly a great account of yuppie NYC in the '80s. Less than Zero, Bonfire of the Vanities, Money, and Bright Lights, Big City were the books of the '80s.
