Also check out the other exclusive features including the 80s Pop Twenty and an Overlooked & Underrated film that might warm you up this November. It's time to get your fix!
The 'Burbs (1989)
Corey Feldman's line "God, I love this street" about sums up this movie for me. I never been into straight-up horror movies but in the "PG horror" genre, this has always been one of my favorites.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988)
Another one that I've seen many times but probably not for 10 years. One of my favorites starring Steve Martin and contains many quotable lines including the answer to the question "why is the cork on the fork?"
I didn't know until just this year that this movie was initially a sequel to Masters of the Universe. Check out the details in this recent Den of Geek article.
Stand By Me (1986)
This is one of those '80s movies I haven't seen way too little. I'm actually not sure if I've ever seen the unedited version as I only remember catching on a cable a couple times. Will definitely be one of the first movies I watch this month.
Fatal Attraction (1987)
I've seen this movie once and that was truly enough for me. For those of you who like rabbit stew, be my guest to add it to your queue.
Rain Man (1988)
Rated R Add to queue
Another movie I never really connected with. I've seen it a few times mainly on cable. Tom Cruise gives great performance and of course Dustin Hoffman's character is one of the iconic ones to come out of the '80s.

Overlooked and Underrated...
Summer Rental (1985)
There are plenty of John Candy films I'd pick ahead of Summer Rental, but I know this movie is better than the 15% critic and the 53% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes (Netflix is 3.6/5 which is much more accurate.) Plenty of laughs in this one to warm you up as the weather turns cold.
