I am an 80's kid. I grew up in the 80s'. I went to high school and college in the 1980s and of course, the clothes, music, and movies of the '80s were a big part of my life. Of course, we all had our favorites during the '80s and it depended on what "circle" you hung out with.

My favorite '80s movie is the Breakfast Club. It was both funny and serious and it just struck a chord with many of us that were in school at that time. We knew all the different "circles" that the kids represented in the movie and we could relate or maybe not.
