What is the best 80's Movie?


Recommended Posts

Just saw an add on Sky doing all the 80's movies and I just wondered what do ye think is the best movie from the 1980's?
All of the 80's movies or just the usual, mainstream and successful 80's movies?


If pushed, I'd lean towards Ghostbusters being the best movie from the 80's, but then I remember Indiana Jones, Batman, The Terminator, Predator, Commando, Bill & Ted, Star Trek II, Rocky IV, Big, Star Wars Ep. V & VI, E.T., Blade Runner, Aliens, The Lost Boys, Ferris Bueller, the John Hughes movies, Back to the Future, The Princess Bride, The Karate Kid, Beverley Hills Cop, The Goonies, Top Gun, DIE HARD, Gremlins, Beetlejuice, Big Trouble in Little China, Labyrinth, Poltergeist, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and a hundred other kids films, action films, horror films, thrillers or comedies and realise that you cannot actually pick just one as a stand-out from the decade.


Let's just say the decade itself was the star of the show.

Impossible for me to pick 5 without leaving out 30 just as deserving :lol


I'll go for:




Temple of Doom


Masters of the Universe (Yep!)


But its so hard not to just have a top 5 consisting of only Arnie movies, Arnie was the 80's. Predator, Terminator, Commando, Running Man, Conan...these are all so good!

IMO the 80s was easily the best ever decade for movies so its really hard to narrow down a list of favourites. Some of my favourites include....


The Terminator


Back to the Future

The Karate Kid

Weird Science

The Shining


The Fly

The Hitcher

Scrooged (can only watch this in December)

Full Metal Jacket
