Blogging in 3.5 Minutes or Less_ Our Favorite '80s High School Films
With that, and greetings to our blog-readers in Mozambique, Venezuela and Jordan, we bring you the latest installment of Blogging in 3.5 minutes or less.
Today, we are going to list our six favorite high school films, with no order of preference, from the 1980s.
This idea came to mind when saw that The Sundance Channel, which along with IFC airs reruns of the cult tv show "Freaks and Geeks," which ran for 18 episodes in 1999, asked followers of its Facebook page what their fav high school film was. It is also Throwback Thursday here in America, and perhaps in Jordan too.
Here are our's:
"Fast Times at Ridgemont High" (1982; pictured_ yes, that is a year young Nicholas Cage)
"The Outsiders" (1983)
"Risky Business" (1983)
"The Breakfast Club" (1985)
"Heathers" (1988, which is the year I graduated from Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland*)
