The Ultimate 80s Teen Films On/Not On Dvd Thread v.3
 
The return of the list!

I have compiled a list of TEEN THEMED FILMS released between 1980-1989.

I am asking those who care about this genre, or at least some of the films in them, to express which titles they would like on dvd.
Also please suggest any titles I may have missed. Only 80's teen themed films only, please!


The list is broken into different categories.
They are:

1. Titles that are/were released on dvd in region 1.
2. Titles that are coming soon to dvd (that have been officially announced)
3. Titles that are in the works for a release.
4. Titles that are not on dvd.
5. My top 10 teen films that should be on dvd list.

I limited the list to 80's teen-themed films. Mostly comedies some dramas/actioners. I have a separate list for the horror genre.

While yes - Cool as Ice was physicaly released in 1991, it embodied the spirit of the 1980's. I'll have to petition that it be added on grounds that the 80's is an attitude, and not an actual span of time.

Your petition is noted, and your enthusiasm is most welcome, but, I have to stick to my timeline.
The early 90s was a scary place to be if you were a teen movie!

natevines 07-14-04 07:40 PM

I want a Ferris Bueller re-issue more than anything.

cultshock 07-14-04 07:40 PM

Cool, didn't know that. Thanks!

Can't argue with that! :D

Sunday Morning 07-14-04 07:45 PM

ever see out of control?
Its a kind of a bizarre little movie which I like. Released from new world pictures in the mid 80s. She plays a spoiled bitch who spends most of the movie in a neglige and does a fine job of it!

cultshock 07-14-04 07:55 PM

Yes, I saw it once on cable years ago (I was keeping an eye out for it because I knew Betsy was in it :) ). Never managed to get the VHS of it, and unfortunately I see that it is on your unreleased DVD list. Damn.

angryyoungman 07-14-04 10:03 PM

Can we consider Howard the Duck to be part of this genre? I think if you're going to include some of the other films listed here, this belongs in the bunch.

True, but there were a few gems (IMO) that came from that period, most notably Pump up the Volume and Airborne, and both definitely have an 80's feel to them.
