1986 A Fine Cine-Vintage

It’s no secret that I often find myself pining for vintage 80s stuff.  I feel more every day that my teen years were the greatest years of my life. I miss it lots.  I started listing the movies from the 80s that  knew by heart.  I don’t just mean the actors or the story but also the lines, the colors, the bad edits.  Movies I have seen over and over and over again.  Memorizing every little nuance.

An amazing thing popped up as a pattern right away.  Most of them occurred in 1986.  What a weird coincidence.  Appears that year was just a bumper crop of awesomeness.  (yep I used an 80s adverb)  Here’s the list, my all time fav movies from 1986.
