The 1980s remind us of things like big hair, shoulder pads, cheesy music, sitcoms and movies. However, it was also an era that was famous for the incredible classic movies, that completely changed the film industry from what was known then. The 1980s have inspired modern films thanks to very talented actors and amazing story-lines.
Some of those 80s movies that absolutely rocked and still do to-date are as follows:-
1. Top Gun (1986)
Director: Tony Scott
Stars: Tom Cruise, Terry McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards
The aviator glasses, the bigger-the-hair-the-closer-to-God blondes, the bad-ass devil-may-care Tom Cruise, the homoerotic volleyball—very few films sum up the '80s better than Top Gun. The action-drama about Navy fighter pilots became the highest grossing movie in '86, and its aerial scenes are still thrilling to watch.
The film is still on everyone's favorite lists, and we're not sure if that's suppose to be tongue-in-cheek or sincere. Like Roger Ebert said, "The good parts of this movie are so good but the bad parts are relentless."
It was a great movie to watch then and it still is today. It gives us insight into how some the actors have developed as actors. 1986 is definitely a long way to 2018. An absolute must-watch for those who want to relieve their wild 80s.
