As You Wish!

princess brideIn 1987 The Princess Bride, one of my favorite movies, opened in theaters to moderate success. Equal parts romance, comedy, adventure and fantasy, it offered something for everyone. Since its release on VHS and DVD, The Princess Bride has steadily become a cult classic based on its imminently quotable dialogue, quirky characters and charmingly bizarre plot.

The Princess Bride is just one of many iconic movies to come out of the 1980s, a prolific and varied decade that brought viewers a fantastic mix of award-winning classics and cult classics worth watching for nostalgia’s sake. It produced heroes like John McClane and Indiana Jones, and villains like Darth Vader, and it saw the start of some franchises that still continue today and the end of others. For many people, the movies of the ‘80s showed how to do everything, from skipping school to saving the world, with style.

Below I have listed a few of my favorite movies from the ‘80s. Let me know your favorites!
