SOME OF THE BEST FILMS OF THE 1980’S   

Join us for our 3rd in a series of most highly rated and enjoyed films of a decade. Having done the films of the 1960s and 70s, this term we look at the films of the 1980s. In general, these films tend to be lighter than in previous terms. Examples are Back to the Future, Blues Brothers, Airplane! And The Princess Bride (a favorite of ours). There were also some wonderful and highly rated action/suspense films in the decade such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and Die Hard. During the course, you will see many great actors and the work of great directors and writers. Check out our syllabus for a complete list of our movies and dates. Our format is to show the film, take a brief break, and have a discussion intended to be enjoyable and informative about the actors, directors, awards, and note-worthy characteristics of the movie. We strongly encourage your contributions to our discussion because they just make the course better. We have scheduled three hours for each class, but shorter movies will usually end earlier than that. We look forward to sharing the movies of the 80s with you.
