Top five movies made in the 80’s

My top 5 80’s Movies


1. The Breakfast Club

I picked The Breakfast Club (made in 1985) because it’s one of my favorite 80’s movies and the most symbolic to me. It symbolizes that even though everyone might be different, we can still come together and realize that we’re not as different as we seem.


2. Labyrinth

I picked Labyrinth (made in 1986) as my number two movie because I watched it a lot as a kid. It means a lot to me and reminds me of happy memories I used to have with my biological parents. It’s a good movie that helps me remember not to take family members for granted, even though they may not seem like they care or love you, they still do.


3. The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid. It was made in 1989, and it’s one of the most classic Disney movies that every little girl obsesses over. This one is my personal favorite of all of the Disney movies besides Tangled. When The Little Mermaid plays, I can say and sing every line. It reminds me of my biological mom’s sister, my aunt Toby. She and I spent a lot of time together as I grew up. It reminds me of when everything was okay, and when I didn’t have so many problems.


4. Spaceballs

Now, this movie had to be in my top 5. Made in 1987, it was created to make fun of the Star Wars movies. It turned out well. One of the reasons I love it is because it’s so literal. Like in the scene where they’re combing the desert, they use actual combs. Some people, like my dad, hates it but loves it at the same time because of how stupid and literal it is. Those qualities are what makes the movie unique. It makes the movie more enjoyable.


5. My Neighbor Totoro

Created in 1988 by Studio Ghibli, My Neighbor Totoro is still a big hit, even considering the age of the movie. Now, I would have put Totoro on the list higher, but all of these movies have great significance to me. This one reminds me of my little sister, River. She loves this movie more than anything and it makes me smile. When she watches it, I can’t help but smile. My biological family got introduced to Studio Ghibli by my stepfather. Once I watched Ponyo, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, and Howl’s Moving Castle, I was doomed to be a Ghibli fan forever. I say that jokingly since I love their movies.
