    How Many Iconic ’80s Films Have You Seen?

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/briangalindo...888#f33089af18

    110 for me.

    Many movies are missing... Including: Escape from New York, The Fly and Lethal Weapon 1 and 2.

    The ones I haven't seen is shit like Driving Miss Daisy, Terms of Endearment, Troop Beverly Hills, Beaches, The Legend of Billie Jean, Mystic Pizza, Legend and The Famous Baker Boys. Those movies.

    And.... The Star Wars movies. I've never watched any of the SW movies.

    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    132. And several others that I think I've seen but can't confirm or deny....like the Muppet movies, for instance, I may have seen them when I was younger but I don't remember so I didn't count those.

    A lot of those films I would not classify as iconic 80's films. But, oh well, just another list.

    I wouldn't lump Terms of Endearment in with the likes of Troop Beverly Hills. It was far from "shit." It was actually an excellent film, but, then again, you haven't seen it.

    Driving Miss Daisy, Terms of Endearment, Beaches, Mystic Pizza and The Famous Baker Boys are all very good movies.

    Even Legend has it great moments.

    I saw 157/170 on that list. That's a lot of shit.

    125 for me.

    Still to this day, I have never seen Ghostbusters. I've seen bits and pieces here and there over the years but I've never watched it from beginning to end....not sure why.

    I forgot about 'The Explorers'.

    I checked off 71, but there were a decent amount more I couldn't remember if I'd seen them or not! And it's a good thing it didn't ask if you saw them in the '80s - 'cause I'm pretty sure a lot of the ones I have seen were seen way after the fact! (like the past 5 years even!)

    haven't seen many of the animated features, the Rocky films, and some of the Sci Fi horror

    I take issue with "Camp Beverly Hills" being listed as an "iconic" movie of the 80's


    man the 80's...seems like we went to a movie just about every week and saw many of them like the Back to the Future films and ET, Goonies and the Indiana Jones films several times

    can't think of any recent movie I would pay to see multiple times
