the continuing education of sprog

Tonight we watched Weird Science and ate Hawaiian pizza for dinner. I feel it’s part of my duty, as his mother, to properly educate him on the movies of my childhood and so we have been working our way through for many years now. Sometimes we are able to catch them at the midnight movies or on the cable networks, other times we watch them on DVD; it really doesn’t matter how, the which is far more important.

So far he has seen:

The Dark Crystal
Labyrinth
Sixteen Candles
Breakfast Club
The Goonies
Lost Boys
Big Trouble in Little China
Karate Kid
The Outsiders
Better Off Dead
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Adventures In Babysitting
This Is Spinal Tap
Teen Wolf
Top Gun
Back To The Future
Short Circuit
Beetlejuice
Caddyshack
A Christmas Story
Spaceballs
The Princess Bride

Of course he has seen the Die Hard, Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Ghostbusters movies from that era as well. In the future I have planned: Pump Up The Volume (as in tomorrow), Heathers, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Summer School, Gleaming The Cube, Real Genius, The Last Starfighter, Once Bitten, Raising Arizona, Streets of Fire, Overboard….I swear I could go on and on and on! What are some of your fave cheesy movies from the 80’s and 90’s?
