Top Ten Lists of Eighties Movies
The concept is pretty easily, pick your ten favorite movies from the eighties. The hard part? I want JUST movies from the eighties, not movies you might have seen during the eighties. Also, try and avoid movies that came out after the eighties if possible, 1990 is pretty borderline, I won't scream too loudly if you add one that is from then...

- 10. Karate Kid
Well it had to be in here somewhere after all the times I watched it because of my brother and his obsession over the film
- 9. Return Of The Jedi
Well it had the Ewalks in it, and besides it was always on curtesy of my brother.
- 8. Friday the 13th part 4
Well it was freaky when Corey Feldman shaved his hair off to look like the monster Jason as a child!
- 7. The Black Cauldron
Well it was scary and it was the only Disney movie ever rated PG! Besides the cute little furry theif who loved 'munchies and crunchies' stole my heart.
- 6. Oliver & Company
Well it was cute too and I love Disney Movies!
- 5. My Science Project
I cant remember when it was filmed, but it was a classic! "Go ahead, make my semester!"
- 4. Ghostbusters
Hey I happened to like Slimer thankyou very much!
- 3. The Fox and the Hound
Hey, come on it was so cute. "I'm a hound dog!"
- 2. Dead Poet's Society
Talk about embrassing I almost got up on my desk in my year 9 English class declaring "Oh Captain my Captain" at the top of my lungs!
- 1. The Goonies
You can't possibly tell me that there was a better movie that came out that year cause I just wont believe you!

- 10. To Live and Die In LA
Friedkin redefines the crime drama with a moral ambiguity and a sense of nihlism and fatalism . After all the main character dies and there 20 minutes left. WHAT??? Great car chase.
- 9. Moonlighting
Not the TV show, but a British film with Jeremy Irons about Polish Immigrant workers in England during the rise of Solidarity.
- 8. Blue Velvet
There is no denying the power of David Lynch's film. Love it or hate it, the most original commercial film of the decade.
- 7. Stranger Than Paradise
Jim Jarmusch's first film is a clarion call to Hollywood that it will never listen to..talent and creativity are more valuable then money and stars.
- 6. Cutter's Way
The best thriller of the last 20 years looks better now then it did then.
- 5. The Dead
John Huston films an unfilmable short story and leaves us with a validictory masterpiece on the complexities of the everyday.
- 4. The King of Comedy
Scorsese's best film is more relevant then ever. DeNiro's character makes your skin crawl and Jerry Lewis is fantastic.
- 3. Rumble Fish
Coppla creates a vision of time and memory, a dream on celluoid that captures the moments of growing into a man better than any other film.
- 2. Secret Honor
Robert Altman shoots a play with only one actor, Philip baker Hall, playing Nixon in an audacious turn that he saved our nation by betraying it. Makes Stones's later overwrought work seem puny.
- 1. Love Streams
Cassavetes last film is also his best with another great performance by Gena Rowlands.
By: Joel Bowman
other kewl flicks include: Ghostbusters,Back to the Future,The Empire Strikes Back, The Goonies, The Outsiders, The Breakfast Club and Wargames.
