  • 20 Timeless 80s Movies To Add To Your Bucketlist

The 80s has always been the era most remembered by many — big hair, shoulder pads, iconic dance moves..

..but most of all the 80s movies you’d love to remember over and over again.

In spite of everything millennial that we face day-to-day, there’s something refreshing about the 80s, thinking about how simple life was back then and what the year 2000 would be like (talking about flying cars which never happened lol!).

Even if the 80s make us feel nostalgic (read: old, ugh!), the magic it cast us never faded.

There’s no doubt the 80s was the best decade ever so we’re remembering the awesome movies that shaped our lives (and we’ve got some interesting trivia that will make you want to watch them again!)
