What ’80s Movie Do You Quote From the Most?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.

Do you want to know what turns a movie into a classic? Okay, there are a lot of factors in play, but the one I think is at the top of the list is the movie’s quotability factor. Are there some absolutely great lines spoken that you can slip into daily conversations? Is there a catchphrase that will take the world by storm? How about a little back-and-forth conversation that you and your best friend can do every time you see each other or go off on an adventure? Great quotes can make any movie the popular kid at the table.

So, the question I ask today is: what ’80s movie is the most-quotable in your opinion?

You’re damn right I’m about to answer Back to the Future to this question. I can pretty much quote the entire movie verbatim. There are just so many great lines like “Whoa, this is heavy” to “you’re my density” to “I have to tell you about the future…” to “Great Scott” to… well, you get the point. I’ll insert a line or two from Back to the Future into almost every conversation if I can.

So what about you, screenagers? What ’80s movie is your favorite to quote?

I’ll see you in the trenches.
