80s themed movies

I am looking for movies that were made recently but are taking place in the 80s. Two that I can think of are Wedding Singer and Edge of Seventeen. Who knows of some more?

Donnie Darko.
I know it wasn't actually set in the 80s, but Napolean Dynamite had a very 80s feel.

200 cigarettes was the main one I was thinking of.

Boogie Nights and Wonderland both cover the late 70s / early 80s.
