Mostly As

If you chose mostly As, you should check out Back to the FutureReleased in 1985, Back to the Future is a classic adventure movie directed by Robert Zemeckis. The rollicking sci-fi flick follows 17-year-old Marty McFly as he is sent back 30 years into the past. Action-packed and a whole lot of fun, Back to the Future, and its cast of quirky characters, is iconic for a reason. Rewatch it time and time again with a big ol’ popcorn bucket.

Mostly Bs

If you chose mostly Bs, you’ve got to sink your teeth into The Lost BoysJoel Schumacher directed this cult classic movie. When two brothers and their mom move to a beach town in California, they soon find that it’s infested with vampires. Over-the-top and oozing in 1980s glam goth goodness, The Lost Boys serves up angst in spades. Be warned: These vamps are no Cullens.

Mostly Ds

If you chose mostly Ds, grab some tissues and watch Dead Poets SocietyStarring Robin Williams as charismatic English teacher John Keating, Dead Poets Society is perfect for those who love rainy days, poetry, warm tea and the slogan “carpe diem.” Despite being released decades ago in 1989, the movie still captures feelings of growing up, finding yourself and young friendship.
