Emily and Sarah give their run down of the 80's films that never fail to give them the warm fuzzies.
he 80's as an era was characterised by the introduction of 'high-concept', big budget Hollywood blockbusters. As big business took control of the studios, film budgets skyrocketed due to new technologies, developments in special effects and inflated salaries of name-recognition stars.
