The Best 80s & 90s Movies That No One Discusses But Should

Redditor u/Lostscribe007 asked, “What's a movie you watched religiously in the 80s and 90s that no one discusses?”

They continued, “We all feel that our childhood was a Golden Age of movies from Ghostbusters and The Goonies in the 80s to Jurassic Park and Home Alone in the 90s.”

They concluded, “We could fill a list of these well-known classics. So what's a movie you watched religiously in the 80s and 90s that no one discusses today?” Reddit responded with several oldies but goodies. So here are some lesser-discussed classics from the 80s and 90s.

Redditor jmac11281 nominated “Toy Soldiers! No one ever talks about this one! Die Hard at a boarding school.” Several people upvoted the film, and seven others posted it as their response.
