The 1980s was a seminal decade in the advancement of the film medium. Just as the world was experiencing tremendous social, political, and economic upheaval, so too was the cultural landscape of the cinema. Movies always have to cater to young people if for no reason other than to take another generation on the art form, but the 1980s saw a plethora of classic teen movies, some of which are as prescient today as they were then, and some of which haven't aged all that well. Many of the teen heartthrobs of the 1980s went on to become the venerable adult actors of today, including Kiefer Sutherland and Robert Downey Jr.
Directors of the 1980s went on to become powerful voices in the decades that followed, inspiring generations of independent filmmakers to take a swing at telling the stories of their private experiences. Films from the 1980s included cultural icons that everyone recognizes today, even if they don't recall where from, like the car from Ferris Bueller's "Day Off," or the boombox from "Say Anything."
