Movie Blogs: Best of the 80′s and You Pick the Classics

posted by Nell Minow

On The 80′s Movie Project you can weigh in with your thoughts on the best, the worst, and the most outrageous from the decade that included “American Gigolo,” “Anaimalymics,” and “Every Which Way You Can.”
And Baltimore Examiner movie critic Tom Clocker, who is kind enough to comment here from time to time, has undertaken his own version of the “Julie & Julia” experiment. He’s going to watch 365 days of classic films based on suggestions from his readers, and blog about what he sees. Check out his blog and let him know what you think he should watch.

Guardians of the Galaxy
The summer movie you've been waiting for has arrived, a joyous space romp that all but explodes off the screen with lots of action and even more charm. Our recent superheros have been complex, often anguished, even downright tortured. It has been a while since we've had a charming rogue with a ba
