As you wish: Princess Bride, Breakfast Club added to National Film Registry

The Princess Bride



You know you’re getting old when ‘80s classics are selected for preservation by the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.

The Hollywood Reporter says 25 films have been chosen for the honor this year including The Decline of Western Civilization (1981), The Breakfast Club (1985), The Princess Bride (1987( and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988). 

Also selected was Suzanne, Suzanne - a 30-minute documentary about a young black woman struggling with physical and substance abuse. 

Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, 25 motion pictures that are "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant and at least 10 years old are selected annually for this honor. So actually, The Breakfast Club has been eligible for inclusion for a WHILE now. And Roger Rabbit? There's a flick that hasn't aged well. But the '80s generation appreciates the effort anyway.

The complete list of inducted movies can be found at this official site at the Library of Congress.
