Angst! Love! Leg Warmers!

The 80’s. The decade of shoulder pads, big hair, leg warmers, and Cyndi Lauper. A lot to celebrate in the 1980’s. A lot to run away from, too.

He will eat you . . . and your children.

One of the good things that comes from this decade, though, is the genre of teen movies. It’s ridiculous, how many of them were made in the 1980’s. And they just don’t make adolescent angst like they used to.

So, I had to ask . . .

I expanded the list to twelve movies, and I still had trouble cutting off potential nominees. For the most part, I stuck to movies that actually centered around high school. But it’s up to you to pick the best one . . .

Voting ends on Monday, August 8th.

  1. ughh i picked Better Off Dead becuase I think it’s the funniest 80’s teen comedy, but I have big love for Heathers, Some Kind of Wonderful and a family favorite-Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I watch Fast Times every year in December. This is so hard!

  2. I’ve masturbated to Fast Times at Ridgemont High more than any other film, so that’s get my vote. Wait … too much information?
