My Favorite Throwback Movies

  I love '80s and '90s movies. They give me this special feeling that I just don't get watching modern day movies. Sometimes all I want to do is relax and put on a retro movie. It's incredible to see how different the world is now only a few decades later. Today I want to share with you a few of my favorite throwback movies I always enjoy watching.

  Clueless is the ultimate classic. This movie is the epitome of  '90s movies. It's such a fabulous lighthearted movie but still keeps you very entertained. The plot of the movie is about a wealthy Beverly Hills high school student, Cher who befriends the new student, Tai and helps her gain popularity alongside her best friend, Dionne. During the process she tries to help Tai find a boyfriend as she also is searching for one herself. And that just scratches the surface. If you haven't seen this movie it's a must!

She's All That
  This has to be one of my favorite movies of all time. I love the entire story line and I always can count on this movie to cheer me up. It's kind of a cliche I have to admit because you probably have heard or seen a rom-com with this plot a couple of times before but nonetheless it's amazing. The most popular guy at school places a bet with his friends that he could transform a dorky girl, Laney into the prom queen. He has five weeks to make her over, take her out and set her up. 

Pretty in Pink
 This movie is about a poor and unpopular girl, Andie who falls for a rich boy, Blaine. Her friends think that their two worlds don't collide well together. Meanwhile her best friend, Duckie has been secretly in love with her for years but doesn't know what to do. This movie is extremely entertaining. The only thing I don't like about it is the ending and if you watch it you'll see what I mean. On the other hand you may love it but I personally didn't like who she ends up with.

Drive Me Crazy
  I watched this movie the most recent. This is about two neighbors Nicole and Chase who were childhood best friends. After Nicole gets rejected and Chase gets dumped they plot a scheme to date each other in order to make the people they used to like jealous. In the middle of planning a gala centennial celebration, Nicole and Chase get closer and start to fall for each other. It's a really funny rom-com and I love the characters personalities.

10 Things I Hate About You
  This movie is about two sisters who attend the same high school together. The older sister, Kat  doesn't like to go out and socialize unlike her younger sister, Bianca who is a socialite. Bianca wants to date an affluent senior, Joey but her father won't allow her to unless Kat starts to date knowing she doesn't want to. Joey pays an Australian bad boy, Patrick to take Kat out so he can start dating her sister. I love the dynamic between the two sisters since their so different.

  I'd love to know in the comments below what your favorite throwback movies are. There's nothing like watching a good movie for the first time!
