Teenage Dream

Ode to the teenage dream! Life as a teenager, hate when living it, miss it when its gone. Just been watching a movie every night, selected from one of my favourite movie eras the late 80's and early 90's where some of the best teenage angst movies were made! God didn't they have damn good music and movies back then - yes they did and I just had to spend some time living in that place for an evening...or three. 
The two movies I happen to have watched so far both have Christian Slater in - a dark and murderous psychopath (very alluring) in the film Heathers with a classic Winona Ryder and her angry monocle diary writing. Then I moved onto Pump Up The Volume with the lovely Christian playing a teenage pirate radio host called Hard Harry, talks about sex, suicide, school and the troubles of being a teenager in a world that doesn't give a crap - strong message about free speech which makes it an amazing movie. And in case you were wondering I was born in the 90's, although I don't understand the whole 'I was a 90's kid' thing, its like who cares? just appreciate that at that time they had great things happening, music, movies, rediscovery of youth! 
Okay so if you are reading this then watch these movies and go back to the time when being a teenager was actually the coolest time in your whole life, that and the clothing back then was awesome (and apparently breaking the law was the thing to do). Bring back the 90's!
