Universal PicturesWhat wasn't there to love about growing up in the 1980s? It might have been the era in which "greed is good" became something of a mantra, but as kids we couldn't have cared less about the politics of the times - if indeed we even care about them today as adults. Reflecting on our childhood in the 80s and talking about it today to younger people and we can't help but sounding like a variation of our grandparents. "In our day we didn't have any internet or mobile phones, and we had to ask our mum for permission to use the landline telephone to give ring our mates and see if they wanted to come out to play. And if you wanted to listen to an album again from the start, you have to wait until the tape had rewound! And don't get me started on video games - back in our day we were lucky if a console could display 256 colours on screen at once!" Still, if there's one thing we certainly did have that we can be proud of it's damn entertaining movies, of which we were completely spoiled for choice. It's a statement that might sound like bias through nostalgia-tinted glasses, but the evidence surely speaks for itself. Here are 20 of the greatest movies of the decade which defined our childhood - awesome 80s movies which we'll cherish forever.
