I can't listen to a Cindy Lauper song without being taken back to the days when my friends and I would jump on our BMX bikes and head out into the desert outside Phoenix looking for "pirates" in the wash after seeing that movie. Good times!

Ha, that's a good one. I remember wanting to have Tatum O'Neal's character's job of selling maps to the stars' homes, LOL. Give me a break, I didn't know any better.

"The Virgin Suicides." It captures the 70's perfectly. The soundtrack, too.

Can't think of a movie, but The Wonder Years tv show kind of nailed my youth experience.

Dazed and Confused. Even though I didn't grow up in the '70s we did the same redneck crap as in that movie. Mailbox baseball, underage drinking, parties in the woods, etc.

We didn't do the whole paddlin' thing though.

Although I just watched the bolded recently...It does somewhat depict my childhood. My thanks to the posters who listed it in other threads.

"Imaginary Crimes", with Harvey Keitel and Fairuza Balk. Best movie that took place in my childhood era ('50's). It didn't reflect my own personal life, but my wife said it was spot-on for her, and she couldn't watch it without bursting into tears.

"This Boy's Life"
with Robert DiNero, Leo DeCaprio and Ellen Barkin, was also a very good movie that captured my childhood era. But not my own childhood.

For some reason Goonies came to mind, like two others have said. The movie and the "soundtrack" thanks Cyndi! But to be honest, many movies have become nostalgic for me. Your childhood will always be "your childhood". So, for me movies in the eighties will always be nostalgic for me.

Other movies that seem to remind me of my youth, and I have no clue why,..but..The lost boys, The breakfast club, Ferris Bueller, Porkys, Animal House, At close range, Fast times at Ridgemont high,--for the ladies (Dirty Dancing and Pretty woman), Cheesy karate flicks, Eddie murphy movies, Michael Keaten movies, Michael Douglas movies, etc, etc. I could go on. All of these movies have become nostalgic in some ways and they represent the eighties for me.
