      I don't have a "top 10" list, and I wasn't a teen in the 80s nor did I watch many movies in the 80s that were rated over probably PG or was either animated, but there are some I did like that I saw when older (90s).

      Ferris Bueller's Day Off

      Sixteen Candles

      The Goonies

      The Witches

      Honey I Shrunk the Kids

      Little Monsters (That movie with Fred Savage and the monsters kidnapped his little bro, who was being played, ironically, but his real-life bro, Ben Savage)

      A Christmas Story (It's a tradition of mine to watch this every year, at least twice)

      Howard the Duck (I loved it then , but realize how wrong it is now, and personally can't stand it now. ^^)

      Who Framed Roger Rabbit (I did see this in the 80s...and I liked it, but didn't really get the jokes. I think I only liked it cause there were cartoon characters. I took a look at it recently last year...and I'm trying to figure out why I liked it as much as I did. It was an awful movie, and the jokes were way too crude.)

      I know you're wondering why I bothered mentioning Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Howard the Duck. Well, I really did love these two movies, as a kid, and both were from the 80s, and I did see them in the 80s so I feel that they qualify (and I am trying to get to 10 movies here lol)

                There was also a movie with Tom Cruise in it that had unicorns and a wicked looking evil guy. I can't remember the name of it though.

                That movie was called Legend. And that evil looking guy was Tim Curry

                        He's awesome in everything he has every been in!
                        He should be in every single movie ever made!
                        After he dies they should digitally insert him into at least 1 scene of every future movie!

                                  that movies great, just got it on dvd recently its one of my favorites along with the last unicorn and the labyrith. i love unicorns they are my favorite animal.
                                  when i was in 3rd grade we had to do a project about our fav. animals and i chose to do mine on unicorns. my teacher tried to tell me they were make believe and iwould have to pick another "real" animal.
                                  I refused ! i even went so far as to bring in pictures of a site unearthed in indoniesa that incedently house a horse with a horn. now tell me they dont exsist! ha i showed her and then she showed me a C when i should have gotten an A it was the best danm paper in the class! that biotch hated me because i was smarter than her. twas true my mom had to switch me to another teacher after a month in miss heartmans, or as i liked to call her hardasses class. and wala my grades magicly went from c's to a's.
                                  im sorry im ranting im bitter, you should never try to stifle a childs imagination.

                                      Any John Huges movie, to me, just incapsulates the 80's teen age angst. I mean, who cant relate to one of his characters?

                                        I pretty much loved all those movies plus the turtles movies and Fletch and so many others, for me it's pointless to make a list because of the huge amount of loved movies but my most favorite R the ghostbusters, the turtles and BIG.
