The Important Question Everyone Is Asking Me.
There’s been a lot going on recently: There is the one year anniversary of the Ferguson shooting, complete with protests and more violence. There was a GOP Presidential debate that hardly anyone watched. Oh, and Russia apparently has made Santa Claus and Mrs Claus, as well as their extended elven family, sovereign Russian citizens.
In light of these events, a lot of people are asking me one important question: “Tin Foil Hat Man, what are your favorite 80’s teen movies?” Being the socially conscious blogger that I am, I feel obliged to answer this continuously controversial question.
#5 Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
Fast Times was hilarious, and featured some awesome music. I loved Sean Penn as Jeff Spicoli, he continues to be one of my favorite movie characters. Also: This.
#4 Back To The Future
Back To The Future is one of those movies that defines the times you were living in. I remember nearly everything that was going on in my life when this movie came out. It was a roller coaster of a movie, and pared well with my roller coaster life at the time.
#3 Say Anything
I didn’t actually see this movie until around 2005. It was an instant favorite the moment I saw it. John Cusack makes my list twice with my inclusion of
#2 Sixteen Candles
This is one of my favorite movies – period. It had laughs galore. It had a cool love story. It had both John and Joan Cusack, and oh, it had this guy:
#1A The Breakfast Club
This was the ultimate in teen anti-establishment movies. What wasn’t to love about The Breakfast Club? I simply adore this movie, and I could watch it over and over and never get sick of it.
#1 Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
I love this movie so much that I want to marry it, and bear its children. Who doesn’t love a movie that features this?
I know what you’re thinking. “Tin Foil Hatman, why are there 6 movies? You said that this is a top 5 list! Can’t you count?” Yes, it is a top 5 list, and I know that I put 6 movies on it. You see, I’m a rebel: I’m John Bender, I’m Jeff Spicoli, I’m Ferris Bueller. I’m the guy who breaks rules and laughs about it the entire time. At least on here I am. Otherwise I’m just a guy that writes blog posts that nobody reads 😉 I hope you enjoyed the list. Do me a solid and tell me about some of your favorites in the comments! In the mean time, I’m off to the movies.
