This Is Why I'm F*cked Up In The Head: 15 of My Childhood-Defining Movies Turn 30 This Year

It turns out that 1985 was a very, very good year for movies that hold a special place in my heart. It was a time when kids cursed, hair was big, and a teenage boy hanging out with a much older scientist/inventor/nutbag wasn’t seen as odd or rape-y. It was a simpler time, ruled by coke-fueled movie pitches and originality.

As odd as some of these choices may seem, and though I may not have seen them until they hit cable, they were all films of my childhood. My under-supervised, slightly fucked-up, amazing childhood. Thanks to Mom, Dad, and HBO.
