Awesome 80’s Weekend: Top 5 80’s Movies to Remake
Another installment of Jack's 80's Weekend and we thought we would kick it off with a list of the top 5 movies from the 80's that should be remade. Jack thought all of these movies were noteworthy to get a 21st Century make-over.
The Lost Boys
The Lost Boys just so happens to be one of those rare flicks that actually gets better and better every time you watch it. There is absolutely nothing to change about this movie and that is why it is the essence of pure perfection.
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Yes, Bill and Ted embodied all that was great about the 80’s. You didn’t have to be smart, good looking, or have a lot of money…you just had to believe in yourself and have a sense of purpose. Their purpose was passing their final presentation in World History, so that they could stay best friends, start their band (The Wyld Stallions!), and create music that would align the heavens and earth and bring peace to the entire universe.
There is a reason why The Thing is in IMDB’s top 250 movies list, and its because the movie really is that good. And if you’ve been paying attention over the years (like me) The Thing is actually rising in the ranks.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
“So far this semester he has been absent nine times. “ “Nine times?” “Nine times.” “I don’t remember him being sick nine times.” “That’s probably because he wasn’t sick. He was skipping school. Wake up and smell the coffee, Mrs. Bueller. It’s a fool’s paradise. He is just leading you down the primrose path.”
Coming to America
So begins another day for Prince Hakeem of Zamunda. Gorgeous women bathing him and servicing his every need and whim, living in a paradise, unsullied by the outside world, and having his OWN money (as in, with his face on it).
