The Doctor and I have been showing the kid’s movies from the 1980′s every few weeks, and we call it “80′s Movie Night” of course…

So far we’ve seen such classics as The Muppet Movie, Gremlins, Ghostbusters (1 and 2), and Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. (The kids aren’t ready for The Breakfast Club yet, and yes, they have seen The Goonies…)

My next suggestion is Meatballs (even though it came out in 1979) but if you’ve got a suggestion for a 1980′s movie, let me know, and we’ll add it to the list.

    How about “War Games” or “Wizard”?

  5. My favorite is Real Genius. Might teach your kids to be even bigger geeks than you Pete.

    Definitely too young for Weird Science then, or Revenge of the Nerds…

    Sorry, I’m out. That’s all I’ve got.

    My favorite one is Neverending Story – just saw it with my girlfriend :) She loves the 80s too and listens to Bonnie Tyler all the time.

  10. Neverending Story is a excellent movie!
