Midfield High School

So, now that we are in 2014, we are 30 years removed from 1984.  Which means these classics are 30 years old.  Just look at all these gems that came out in one year.  I challenge anyone to find a better year with so many great flicks.  I don't think it will ever happen again. 

Sixteen Candles (RIP John Hughes)

Gremlins (Phobe Cates)
