A solid 80’s movie is hard to pass up. I have a small scrap of paper in my living room with movies I have yet to watch. Perhaps setting myself up for judgment, it includes Amadeus, Real Genius, Blue Velvet, Say Anything, and more.

There are, of course, a couple flicks I struggle to not watch time and time again: Dead Poets Society, Better Off Dead (I used to have a cat named Charles DeMar)… Back to the Future. For some reason, I love Biff’s character. He’s such a tool. It’s great.

How To Watch performed a study of the 50 states, demographics, and favorite 80’s flicks. Results aren’t as surprising as you may think. If you’re an 80’s baby, chances are you rolled out on Halloween as a character from at least one of the films. Back To The Future roars in as Michigan’s numero uno – empirical data, always correct. Check out the full study at https://www.howtowatch.com/trends/top-80s-movie-by-state/. Airplane! flies right over the competition in Ohio, and of course, GhostBusters comes in and sucks up most surrounding states.

I mean, come on. This is big news. Agreements? Disagreements? Suggestions on must-sees always welcome.
