ADOLESCENCE: OUR TEAM IS WAY PASS THOSE DAYS, BUT WE STILL REMEMBER THEM VIVIDLY! AFTER ALL, EVERYONE WAS THEIR AGE ONCE, AND A BIG PIECE OF CINEMA HISTORY CAN MAKE US FEEL YOUNG AGAIN!
Good times… or terrible, miserable hormonal times, replete with big spots and bad haircuts.
Teen movies tend to portray both of these extremes, highlighting the everyday struggles of the nerdy outcast and/or the lifetime highs of the popular jock. It’s just like real life. Except the main cast are always about 20yrs older than they ought to be, and everyone gets a cracking personal soundtrack.
Who didn’t wish at least once to find out having a twin sister/brother while off to the summer camp?? And boys…please don’t even try to pretend you never wished to create the perfect woman in a Frankenstein style! Not to mention the outrageous amount of pink dresses sold during the 80’s… it was like the only color accepted for prom attire in that decade!
Did you forgot all those cheesy moments when the nerdy girl conquered the bad boy? or the town where the music was banished? Where you the kind of teen who wanted to be left on a desert island with just one other human being to breed with? Never though coming back home to start plotting home made alarm systems just to be safe… Movies taught us that creepy figures with masks and knives can be just around the corner!
So join us down the memory lane: here is our ranking of the most memorable masterpieces of these teenaged dreams, from the 1960s all the way to 2014.
