What's your favorite 80's movie?

Ferris Bueller's day off is pretty much the greatest movie of all time, but I pretty much like anything written by John Hughes.

Agreed. And how many eventual academy award winning actors did this movie have? At LEAST 3 with Penn, Cage, and Whitaker.

He's a pretty decent guy. I've met him a couple of times and he even signed one of my props from BTTF II.

If I remember right, he was in the Wing Commander series. I believe a former porn star also played a roll and so did Malcolm McDowell.

Boy. Those were some great games!

I owned an Oh La La magazine that was made for the movie.  Tom Wilson autographed it for me sometime around the year 2000. 

I got lazy and forgot to put it up for sale in 2015.  It was in storage at a friends house, and unfortunately it was lost in the 2016 flood we had in Louisiana.  

I paid $200 for it and the link below shows what one recently auctioned for.

Luckily, I also purchased a BTTF II Pizza Hut wrapper back in 2000.  I paid $100 for it, and sold it on eBay for $2,500 in 2015.
