Dinosaur 1980,  Unrated)
Dinosaur
Fun and educational movie, I first saw it at the public museum, and bought it on video. Great for kids, but also entertaining for adults.

The Fox and the Hound 1981,  G)
The Fox and the Hound
Cute Disney movie. There weren't many of these in the 80s. Plus, Corey Feldman does a voice for this movie, so if you're a fan of his check it out.

The Great Muppet Caper 1981,  G)
The Great Muppet Caper
Not as funny as the Muppet Movie, but still enjoyable. You've got the Muppets again, more celebrities, and some funny jokes, so it's a fun movie.

Time Bandits 1981,  PG)
Time Bandits
I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll try watching it again some time.

If you haven't seen this movie, there's something wrong with you.

The Dark Crystal 1982,  PG)
The Dark Crystal
This is a very interesting fantasy movie, but it's all puppets, which gets a bit boring at times.

The best fantasy movie of the 80s! Also very original, and exciting. A must see.
18
Frankenweenie 1992,  PG)
Frankenweenie
I know, I know, I think all of Burton's films are genius, but this movie is about a boy who like Frankenstein, brings his dog back to life! And it takes place in the 50s. It's a really cool little movie. A must-see for Burton fans, or fans of old horror movies.
19
Cloak & Dagger 1984,  PG)
Cloak & Dagger
What a fantastic movie! I loved it. This is a kid's action movie, but adults can enjoy it too because it isn't silly or fluffy like movies today, it's actually really exciting and suspenseful. I highly recommend this movie, it's one of the best kids movies of the decade.

Babes in Toyland 1986,  G)
Babes in Toyland
Overacted, silly, and not well made. It's fun if you just want to sit there and not think for a while and watch Drew Barrymore and Keanu Reeve, but that's all.
38
The Transformers - The Movie 1986,  PG)
39
The Care Bears Movie II: A New Generation 1986,  G)

43
The Princess Bride 1987,  PG)
The Princess Bride
A classic family film that everyone will enjoy. It's got both fantasy and comedy without being a spoof, and it's told in an unique way. This is a fantastic movie.
44
The Brave Little Toaster 1987,  G)
45
The Chipmunk Adventure 1987,  G)
46
The Garbage Pail Kids Movie 1987,  PG)
The Garbage Pail Kids Movie
This is one of the strangest movies of the eighties. While watching I went from thinking the movie was the worst I'd ever seen, and then I moved to the "so bad it's good" category, and then when it got to the ending I changed my mind again and thought: "well it accomplishes the goal of being gross, it's funny when it's not trying to be and unfunny when it does try, the songs in the middle of nowhere are so annoying, but it was somewhat entertaining and if I was a kid I might like it." Overall, a so-so movie. Still, I'd recommend this to kids under 12.

Big Top Pee-Wee 1988,  PG)
Big Top Pee-Wee
Horrible. Pee-Wee's Big Adventure did not need a sequel. This movie is nowhere near the level of the first movie. Bad acting, story, everything.
58
Mac and Me 1988,  PG)
