Remembering the 80's
Growing up in the 80's, coming home after school to watch the Transformers with a big bowl of fruit loops was daily ritual for me. Television, playing in the park, and watching movies was pretty much all I cared about. Being a little tyke, I didn't get to see too many films at the actual theater, but my mother was an avid renter of videos from the local "Video 99". She would bring me in the store and I got to eat the complimentary popcorn while she browsed the new release section. Periodically I would glance over at the adult section and stifle a laugh.
Many of the movies that were released during the 80s featured kids and teens in adventurous situations and I quicky related to the characters. I still get a chill up my spine when i see a commercial for Back to the Future, or Stand By Me on TBS. Movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Breakfast Club, Goonies and Roger Rabbit all stand out in my mind and will always touch the heart of any 80's baby.
Working at a poster store, I am blessed to be reminded daily of the joy I felt as a skinny kid wearing short shorts and my Thundercats t-shirt.
Just for you 80s babies out there, I'm posting my favorite collection of movie posters from the best decade yet ;)
