10 Underrated '80s Movies You Might Have Forgotten
Created by Mat Elfring on
When you think about movies from the '80s, there are a few that come to mind, like the Indiana Jones franchise, Back to the Future, Goonies, Batman, Die Hard, and many others. However, the decade produced a plethora of fantastic movies ranging from comedies to adventures to even horror.
Because this was the '80s, the era of VHS rental was on the rise but hadn't reached its peak yet. So while renting movies at your local video store was gradually becoming more and more popular, it hadn't reached levels that it did during the '90s. Additionally, because of this, if you didn't see a movie in the theater, there was a better chance you'd forget about it.
However, we live in an age where you can watch almost any movie from any decade by simply downloading it onto your phone or tablet. We have thousands of movies available with just one click. That means you can catch up on movies from the past you might have originally missed.
So while you can check out Escape From New York, The Thing, Tango & Cash, or whatever Kurt Russell movie fits your fancy, you could also check out these underrated movies from decades past that deserve a second look.
