Ask LJ - 80's movie nights.

If you were to host an "80's Movie Night," what kind would you host? Action-Adventure? Comedy? Kids? Dance? And what would be your top offerings, or your preferred line-up? Would you put any Disney or cartoon flicks (Heavy Metal) in there?

For example, if I were to host an Action movie night, I would put out Die Hard, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Terminator, Lethal Weapon. For an 80's Kids night, I would put out Karate Kid, Goonies, Neverending Story, Labyrinth. Dance night would be Fame, Flashdance, Dirty Dancing, Footloose. Somewhere in there I'd have to have Action/Comedy for Romancing the Stone and Airplane! I'm not sure where I'd put Top Gun or Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but they would have to be in there somewhere.

Pick a theme, and tell me your movies! Comments are open.
