I love movies. There's nothing better to me than settling in at the movie theater with an 800 calorie bucket of popcorn and a 20 oz Diet Coke while I get ready to watch a story unfold on the big screen. I grew up watching movies with my parents and siblings. As my kids grow up, I love taking them to the theater and sharing my love of movie magic with them.While I love every kind of movie and every kind of genre, there's something special about those movies made in the 80's.
Growing up as a child in the 80's means I got to see some of the best movies ever made, and now that I'm a mother I have the luxury of sharing those movies with my kids. Even better is that between Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and any local discount store, I can share them with my kids in the comfort of my own home for pennies. These are the movies that shaped our youth and our kids deserve to see them.
