80's Movie May-rathon 2012
May is approaching, which means it's time for another 80's movie marathon! I've been doing this for the last 10 years. I sit down at the end of every day and select a flick (or two) from a beautiful period of film history. There are some amazing films, there are some god awful films... either way, I'm out to sit through 31 of them--probably more now that I'll be spending at least the first week recovering from surgery which means doing nothing but sitting on my ass watching movies and reading. So let's have a look at the list for the first half of the month. You tell me what you've liked, disliked, seen or haven't! I'm also open to suggestion! I'll see anything! Speaking of Anything...

Nothing on this list is set in stone. For the most part, I threw random movies at dates--a lot of them off the top of my head. I'm open to suggestions as to what I should take off/add/etc. I ignored the standard Monday-Sunday week to try and get a fairly balanced number of days. Days highlighted in green represent Friday/Saturday. Titles highlighted in Violet are pulled from the list of recommendations made by you.
This year's marathon made possible by my shitty, stony gallbladder, Lloyd Dobler, and the good folks who make Percocet--bless your souls.
