Brad Roemer Examine the Best Movies of the 80s

By: marysmith


When it comes to movies, they fall into two camps. The first is age and the second is legacy. Fortunately, Brad Roemer has a knack for finding the best movies from each decade. In this article, we will be examining the movies that he has recommended to us from the 1980s. We all have a fondness for certain decades and this has to be one of the most revered decades of all time. Some of the greatest movies in Hollywood come from the 80s and today we are going to share with you a few of them.

Exquisite Eighties

The time in history where we arguably looked the most ridiculous in the way we dress and the way we talked produced arguably the best movies in history. This was a time in history with pagers and parachute pants and when you could actually sustain an injury from family games (we’re looking at you Jarts!). Join us on a trip to the past and check out the best movies of the 1980s.

  1. T. the Extraterrestrial – Who didn’t get a little teary-eyed when E.T. had to leave to go back home? This, in case you have never heard of it, is a story about a gentle alien that gets stranded on Earth and is discovered by a young boy. Though he tries to keep him hidden while the alien attempts to contact his home planet, he is discovered by the sister and other kids.
  2. The Goonies – Perhaps the most terrifying thought in any kid’s mind – losing their house. This movie follows the story of a group of friends trying to save their family home. They don’t want it to be taken over by a bunch of rich snobs that only want to use it as a country club. Therefore, they set off onto an adventure to find One-Eyed Willy’s lost treasure. The twists and turns leave the viewer longing for more.
  3. The Breakfast Club – What could be worse than spending your Saturday in detention? Well, nothing. But these five misfits seem to find a way to make it work. At first, they thought they were complete opposites of each other, but in the end, find that they are not that different after all.
  4. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off – We have all dreamed about skipping school and having some fun while doing it. Usually skipping school means you are holed up in a friend’s house all day. This movie shows what is possible if you only dream big. Ferris and his friends tour the Chicago streets and have the best skip day ever. The anticipation of them getting caught at every turn kept us watching and re-watching the film over the years.


Thanks to Brad Roemer, we were able to supply you with a short list of movies that you simply must make the time to see. With the holidays right around the corner, perhaps you will find time to watch a few of these classic movies from almost forty years ago. Trust us when we tell you that you will not be disappointed.
