[highlight= rgb(255, 255, 255);]A few hold up in a cheesy sort of way, but some are just really bad to watch now.  I saw "Goonies" again last year for the first time in 30 years and man, that was tough to get through.  Awful acting and writing that would be panned today.  Some of these movies are best left vaguely remembering than seeing again.  

Oh man, The Goonies is one of those movies that should be right in my wheelhouse, but lord is it painful to sit through.  By the time Brandon says his "Long enough, Mikey, long enough" line, I had very dark thoughts in my mind.  Only Kerri Green keeps me from acting on them.   
Purple Rain is another one.  Great soundtrack, but a ridiculously horrible movie.
