I was a kid in the 80s, and some of my favorite movies come from this time. I’ve seen this tag a few places, and thought it looked like a fun one. Thanks Siobhan at Siobhan’s Novelties for tagging me! And thanks for Ashley a The Infinite Library for creating it! I’ve seen every movie on this list, and all of them more than once.
