Top 5 movies of 1980s
5.The Shining (1980) 13+ONLY
This extraordinary Stephen king adaptation manages to fit in just about everything from the book. While not being as scary as Misery or as charming as the Green Mile it manages to be original with the "Danny come live with us" scene "HERES JOHNNY" and even good old redrum. It's just a classic tale with scarieness and...some bad things that make you wanna read the book first. But in this case the movie was better than the book.
And no pictures cause the movie is too violent for you guys.
4.The Terminator (1984)11+
This flashy film brought the action to back to the future. While it's not nearly as good as Terminator 2 it's the one that started some of the best Arnold Swarchnegger lines. And besides spectacular special effects....the film is short sadly and you know what makes this film spectactular is that they barf on the plot and twist it and fans still loved the second. I warn you the 3rd and 4th film are terrible and I felt like Genisys wasn't to bad, but thats my opinion.
3.E.T (1982) all ages
This little film was made for kids, but the comedy, adventure and even swearing also lures adults in like a fishing reel. A known classic, no one doesn't like the adorable little E.T and with it finding out everything it really makes this plot exciting and starstruck with great role models. We've seen Alien and also Independence Day but we all no that E.T is the best alien movie of all, it also snatches my 3rd spot. And who doesn't like a film about a cute alien?
2.Raiders of the lost ark (1984) 11+
When you hear Indiana Jones you will think of Raiders Of The Lost Ark. From the snakes to the scaring face melting scene it's an overall clever and adventurous film with colorful characters, the best action and even Christianity. This is the best Indiana jones film EVER and makes me wanna jump,cheer and hate snakes....I forgot to mention there's memorable scenes. You'll be having fun watching this classic.
Quick shoutout Temple of doom (1985)
This film was also a great 80s movie, not good enough for this list, but if you loved the first, you will love the 2nd also.
Empire strikes back (1980)
Stand by me (1986)
Die Hard (1988)
Which was yours
Back to the future (1985) 9+
If you came to this list you would know this is my first. With great characters, funny jokes, a understandable story and even a moral you will never know a better time travel movie (sorry Terminator) having a crazy proffessor a snazzy but good teen and a wimpy and cowardly teen it's a film that you can't miss. Though you might be uninterested at the beginning, trust me it's worth your valuable time.
