The summer is coming! It’s time to take a break from school, crank up the A/C, and do absolutely nothing. But, when doing nothing gets boring and you’ve already watched every movie in your collection, someone is bound to tell you to leave your house. The heat is the enemy. In times like this, you have nowhere to turn but your mom’s favorite movie from when she was growing up.

People tend to avoid 80’s movies because of the bad quality of the special effects. But if you look past that, the acting and story are amazing, and much better than movies today. Here are some of my favorites:

1. The Princess Bride
2. The Goonies
3. Sixteen Candles
4. Say Anything
5. The Neverending Story
6. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
7. Back To The Future
8. Ghostbusters (the original, with Bill Murray)
9. Dirty Dancing
10. Heathers
11. Adventures in Babysitting

These are some really great movies that everyone should watch. And the summer is the perfect time to be lazy, so why not give them a try?
