FreebieFriday_CommunityTGIF! Every week on “Freebie Friday” we offer our readers an opportunity to win free prizes. This week we’re giving away 5-packs of free Redbox rentals to three lucky winners!

Quintessential ’80s flick Top Gun soars back into theaters this weekend in 3D. Its triumphant return got us thinking about other classics from the decade of Reagan, Wall Street, and Flock of Seagulls.Enter this week’s contest by answering the following question in the comments section below:

What’s your favorite movie from the 1980s?

There’s no shortage of great ’80s flicks to choose from. Are you a Raiders of the Lost Ark, Rocky or Rambo fan? Maybe Back to the Future, The Breakfast Club or The Princess Bride are more your thing? Pop up your collar, put on your Ray-Bans, and tell us your pick!

On Monday the 11th we will pick three winners at random from the submitted comments. Each winner will receive five free Redbox rentals! Multiple comments will disqualify you, so please respond just once.

Good luck, Insiders!


Congratulations to our winners: BethLarke, ShibigonSuzuki, and CherylHoeyWilson! We’ll be in touch shortly about your prizes.

    Favorite movie–One that can not be classified by genre; The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Across the 8th Dimension.  Even the name of the movie is great.

    My all time favorite movie is, “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles”,!  I’ve made everyone in my family watch it so many times that I now have to enjoy it by myself with my dogs!
