The ’80s was a huge decade for movies, some of the finest works of the cinematic universe were released in this decade and also some of the best stories. We can not buy all the movies but almost everyone has Netflix membership, let’s look at The Best ’80s Movies on Netflix that you can watch tonight.
The Shining (1980)
The shining is one of the best movies of Jack Nicholson and is one of the movies that made him such a household name. You do not need anybody to tell you that the Shining is great, it is considered one of the best horror movies by Stanley Kubrick and according to a lot of people it is the scariest movie ever made.
E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
Steven Spielberg is a brilliant director and Extra Terrestrial is considered one of his best works. The movie has just turned 35 this year and is widely considered one of the most enduring and beloved sci-fi and family movie of all time. The performances by 10 year old Elliot played by Henery Thomas and other cast members are very moving.
Gremlins, by the one and only Joe Dante, is an interesting Christmas comedy in which a bunch of mischievous Gremlins are unleashed on a small town and all hell breaks loose. Gremlins was responsible for hunting almost every ’80s kid but the smart sense of humor of the movie keeps it from being a full fledged horror movie. The cast of the movie was great as well which includes Phoebe Cates, Judge Reinhold, and Corey Feldman.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
As it turns out, horror was a big theme for the Hollywood movies of the ’80s with some of the best horror movies ever created released in the decade. The movie went against all odds and proved to be much better than its many inferior sequels.
