MOFO 80's Teen Movie Hall of Fame

Tools    





Mistress of Sick Gore

Hi Everyone - MovieGal here,

The rules are simple

- The film must have been made from 1980 to 1989.
- It must contain a lead character who is a teen.
- The film can be set in any era such as "Back to The Future" or "Outsiders"
- It can be of any genre - 80's Teen Horror is most welcome to join with Teen Romance, Teen Comedy and Teen Action.
- Everyone who nominates a film, will watch and rate the other nominee's film.


I want to make this a fun Hall of Fame so please any open discussions about music from the films, quizzes and even our own fun stories of being a teen is welcome.

I was a teen during this time and I graduated high school in 1985 so perhaps I will even share my senior picture from then. This is open to everyone, remember the more the merrier!

Enjoy and Have Fun!!!!

A BIG thanks to @Citizen Rules for helping me. We have been talking about this on and off for a while... You are a great support and friend.

After all, horror is usually concerned in some way with death, and romance is concerned with love, but love and death and how one is bound up in the other is the very essence of gothic.

I'll have to give this one some serious thought. I have a feeling that I'd hate majority of nominations but will need to investigate a bit further than my prejudices. Right off the bat I can't think more than a handful I've liked so no promises about joining but it's possible.



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
Actually, that sounds kind of fun. I graduated in '82 so there's a good chance I've seen a large chunk of films from then that I watched during that time and it may be a lot of fun to do a revisit.

In fact, right off the top of my head, I may already have a nom ready to go.

No surprise there.

Suspect's Reviews



Mistress of Sick Gore
I hope someone nominates Heathers...I have yet to see it.

Odds on how many John Hughes films get nominated?
I'm picking last. I want to make sure I pick a rarely seen film.



Mistress of Sick Gore
Most know Pretty In Pink and The Breakfast Club are 2 of my favs and they will be up for grabs. I think I have my nom already.

You should join. You might find some new ones you enjoy.




On or around November 1st, Citizen Rules and I are co-hosting a MOFO 80's Teen Movie Hall of Fame.

The rules are simple

- The film must have been made from 1980 to 1989.
- It must contain a lead character who is a teen.
- The film can be set in any era such as "Back to The Future" or "Outsiders"
- It can be of any genre - 80's Teen Horror is most welcome to join with Teen Romance, Teen Comedy and Teen Action.
- Everyone who nominates a film, will watch and rate the other nominee's film.
Great job MovieGal. I like the whole 80s teen theme, so many awesomely cool teen movies from the 80s, this will be fun!

I like that there's 3 weeks to decide on a movie nomination. That gives me lots of time try and pick a good one

Hughes will pretty much be a given for high school 80's flicks. lol Which is fine there are some great ones by him.
And having someone nominate Heathers would be great. Been forever since I saw that one and I have a feeling you'd kick outta of it. And if not, well, "F@ck me gently with a chainsaw."

@Citizen Rules said: You and MovieGal are youngins I did graduate from high school in the 80s too

Whatever, grandpa does The Home know you're using their computer?

You are older but by very little, my friend.
