    Possibly the golden age of movies in some respects,a new age of special effects.@PhillipsBarrie

  8. Damien Hudson

    Because they're original and not just remakes like you get recently.

  9. Catherine Owen

    Because they have stood the test of time, my children are now watching and enjoying them/learning from them just as i did at their age. I can still watch them now, and not just remember my time back then, but enjoy them as much as i did.

  10. Andrew Dommett

    It was the era when I was a teenager (1981 onwards). Golden era of movies for me.

    I love 80s movies because they take me back to my childhood. @alisonjoyce2010

  12. angela sandhu

    I adore 80s movies! my 9 year old son is also starting to love them which is brilliant for me! I love the era of Michael J Fox! The music in them was also fab! absolute classics!

    I love eighties films because it was the time I first started watching films. I was about 12 when ET came out and it blew me away. I watched as many films as I could from then on and whenever i watch an eighties film now it takes me back to how in awe I felt at the time x

  14. shane weir

    Because they took themselves less seriously and weren't all about cgi. There was a warmth and feeling to them

  15. Pamela Gibson

    I love eighties movies because I was a teenager in the eighties and even though they are all silly they are what I grew up with. My uttmost favourites were Steve Martin films like The Man with Two Brains and All of Me.

  16. VA Carter

    I LOVE eighties movies because there's no movies that can beat them, you don't need to spend a ridiculous amount of money to make a decent film, they're funnier, zanier and often have a better plot!

  17. Richard Rowley

    Eighties movies are the ones I grew up watching and I can watch them again and again. Back to the future has to be one of my all time favourite films @richy_rowley

  18. Jesse Partington

    In Eighties movies the plots are usually much more believable than the current "shoot 'em up" ones.

  19. Mich Wat

    A lot less CGI and some of the better films were made in the 80s @5122262

  20. Caz Nobee

  24. alexlukeshelby

    80's movie seemed to have a great comedy element, and growing up in that era 'I got it'

  25. Rod Curtis

    80s movies are great, that time was so exciting as so many new special effects came out and some really inventive plots. @psychicsheep

  26. Maggie Coates

    I like 80's movies, because that was a time before I had children, that I had more time to myself to do things like going to the cinema. @Pumpkin2k9 on twitter

  27. Cathy Gordon

    They take me back to the good old days when I was young, free and single.

  28. Jeremy Hards

    I love 80's movies as that is when some of the best movies were made such as The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink and Gregory's Girl to name just a few. It may also be because that was when I was growing up and now those films bring back good memories. However, I still feel that more good movies were made in the 80s than are made now

  29. Alice Hindley

    it was a wonderful decade for great movies – tweet me @aesop30

  30. Francis Lee

    the comedy in the 80's films are so much different to films nower days.


  31. ♫ Alison M ♪

    They are great fun

  32. Emma Hicks

    80s movies are so nostalgic, reminding me of my childhood and happy times! This is why I love watching them over and over 🙂


  33. Alison

    Ive love Eighties movies because they are classic and remind me of when I was younger. I love watching them year later and seeing how things have changed

  34. AliThorpe

    Eighties movies were unashamedly cheesy but did it with style. It was a decade when everything was good and simpler (I was in primary school then) and so were the films. Innocent, witty, harmless, silly, special films that were so, er, eightiesish. Arthur, The Lonely Guy, Stir Crazy! Amazing, imaginative kids' films like Explorers and The Boy Who Could Fly. One of my top five films of all time, Stand By Me. Oh, and another favourite, Class, with eighties movie guru Andrew McCarthy. Class WAS class, as were almost all of the Brat Pack films, especially The Breakfast Club! That bit where the door slams shut on The Breakfast Club … "screws fall out all the time; the world is an imperfect place". (@alicomps)

  35. karen colquhoun

    i love eighties movies as they take me right back to my childhood. So many happy merories from watching these films. @hunnycat

  36. Jenny

    I love them because they were just so much fun. Movies these days are so much more serious and pretentious.
