Lifestyle | Must Watch 80'S Movies - NETFLIX Edition

What's better than curling up on the sofa at this time of year with a GIANT cuppa tea or hot chocolate and indulging in some feel good movies?
Nothing, that's what!
Well actually, you could invite the girls round and all watch a bit of cheese together, that's pretty fun too.
I am a real 80's child, I love big hair, lairy clothing and good whack of (Jon) Bon Jovi thrown in for a laugh.
When I get a night to myself or with the girls there is nothing I love more than indulging in a bit of cheese from the 80's and today I thought I'd share some of my favourite 80's movies with you.  These are all currently available on NETFLIX too if you felt the need to have a full in depth marathon and hide for a few hours.
So stick your hair in a side ponytail, stock up on sherbet dips and pour yourself a babysham things are about to get cheesy.
Beverly Hills Cop
I was brought up watching very bad action movies - think Jean Claude Van Damme & Steven Segal, BHC was one of the first comedy action type movies that I remember watching and it's stuck with me.  You just can't beat that laugh.
A top watch for a night in with the other half too, car chases, guns and ridiculous synth music throughout.

Ahhh MJF in his prime and not in a DeLorean.
Typical good guy wants the girl, bad guy in the way.  Throw in some hairy moments and a sport and you've got a hilarious comedy that you'll want to watch again and again.  It just doesn't get old.

Naked Gun
I love old crime/ police dramas and Naked Gun rips them ALL apart.  No matter how many times I watch any of the Naked Gun movies I laugh out loud.  You'll see all the jokes coming but won't be able to stop yourself from laughing.  A real goofball giggle fest you can watch with all the family.

Christian Slater and Winona Ryder star in quite a dark one in my list of light-heartedness.  Heathers is filled with witty lines and tons of irony.  It's certainly not your normal teen high school drama but that's why I love it.

Pretty In Pink
What 80's movie list would be complete without this one?  It'll always be a favourite of mine and probably any sensitive girl.  With a totally bitch'in (yes, I did just say that) soundtrack and hairstyles you'll secretly try at home in your bedroom when nobody is watching, Pretty In Pink will always be up there as one of the best 80's movies of all time in my mind.

Johnny Be Good
Robert Downey Jr! 
I think that's all I really have to say here!  Ok, then how about he looks really goofy in this one.  Way before he got all sexy-rugged and Iron'y and we didn't know what was to come.  An amusing coming of age type comedy along the same lines of Pretty in Pink etc - the teen movies had to start somewhere and here is a decent place to have a giggle.  A fair amount of innuendo those so don't watch this with the kiddies.

I'd recommend you have a NETFLIX day and check out some of these, even if only for the soundtracks.  And sure pop back over and tell me how much you hated/ loved them.
