Films of the 80's
I was born in the early 80’s.

There have been a lot of great films (in my opinion) that came out of that decade.

It was the time when a lot of stars started to make big hits that propelled there careers i.e.

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Sylvester Stallone
  • Eddie Murphy
  • Michael J Fox
  • Matthew Broderick
  • Steve Guttenberg
