After a string of disappointing movies in the 1970s, the 1980s were seen as exciting and refreshing to many people. The decade was characterized mostly by actors like Matthew Broderick, John Cusack, Michael J. Fox and Winona Ryder, and it was also known for the many John Hughes movies, including "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club," "Pretty in Pink" and "Weird Science," dance movies like "Dirty Dancing," "Footloose" and "Flashdance," three Indiana Jones films (1981, 1984 and 1989) and numerous Sci-Fi movies like "Star Wars," "Ghostbusters" and "Aliens."
Before the 1980's, there weren't that many movies specifically made for children, but once the decade began, films like "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," "The Never Ending Story," "The Goonies," "The Princess Bride," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," "Ernest Goes to Camp" and "The Little Mermaid" all made the decade that much more enjoyable for children growing up during that time.
