There are two things I remember best about early-to-mid-1980s movies: slasher films and teen comedies. While the slasher films bring back fond memories they never quite compare to the quality of the teen angst flicks which made for repeated viewings.
Everything from Porky’s to the top-notch entertainment of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, the teen flicks of the 80’s have never been matched to date. One of the most consistent writer/directors to contribute to the ’80s teen fad was John Hughes who in one way or another, was responsible for the likes of Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club and Weird Science. Today on Sound On sight we remember the legend and reflect back on our childhood.
