    I know... I know... I'm the unofficial Comicboards.com 80s guy, thus very biased, but...

We appreciate your work here lol

The last time I watched Fast Times, I really questioned my opinion of it. Its themes are universal and timeless but I found the humor pretty dated. It's still charming but it's not the comedy classic I used to think it was.

Better Off Dead's humor seems to be ahead of its time when looking back now. Dan Schneider, who played Ricky, went on to create Nickelodeon tween classics iCarly and Victorious and you can see his off-the-wall sense of humor.

Spot on with Ferris Bueller. That movie has absolutely withstood the test of time.

Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer seems more like a 70s movie to me, but I agree, it holds up. It's not for everyone but horror fans of any age will like it.

The Thing is one of the best horror movies of all time.
