iCM Forum's Favourite Movies of the 1980s
Posted Image

The 1980s; the decade of materialism and consumerism, glasnost and perestroika, Reagan and Thatcher, yuppies, greed, coke, AIDS, MTV, Nintendo, IBM and Macintosh, the collapse of communism in eastern Europe and fall of the Berlin Wall, the Tiananmen Square protests and many other wars, elections, coups, crises, disasters, deaths, births, sportmatches, inventions and trends, which can''t all be mentioned in this very brief recap. It's the decade many of us were born in. It's also a decade that has a bad reputation in movie history. So let's make a list together of movies that were made in the eighties that are worth watching.

To be clear the 1980s are from 1980 to 1989 incl.!

The deadline is 27th May 2016


  • Nominees must be from 1980 - 1989 according to imdb. Which means the year in brackets next to the title, not the release-date in your country.*
  • Shorts, mini-series and TV-episodes from anthology series where the episodes are unrelated, are allowed. Tv-series aren't allowed.*
    *Imdb will be leading in this, but if you have good arguments exceptions to the rule can be made in consultation

  • Imdb-lists or iCM-lists are accepted. (If you can't make one of those, ask another user to help you out.)
  • Lists can be any length.
  • Each nominee can only be named once (of course)
  • Lists can be ranked or unranked. When not specified I will consider a list as ranked.
  • Partially ranked list aren't allowed. Partially ranked list, that still are submitted, will be considered as unranked.


Since all of our decade list are top 250s, this one is going to be as well. Half-life will be set as well for this reason.
Scoring for ranked lists: Half-life = 50
Scoring for unranked lists: Every film on your list receives the same number of points (the average of what they would have received if your list was ranked).


Some help:
1980s movies you rated on imdb
1980s movies on a imdb list (replace XXXX with the list id)

While watching movies for this or after the results are in, you can participate in the The Unofficial 1980s Challenge

I might add my 7/10s later although it's going to be around 100 more films.

Whatever happened to your passe-partout decade introduction? :P I agree that the eighties are a relatively weak decade. After a number of undeniable all-time classics in the seventies Hollywood turned more towards the easy entertainment of popcorn cinema. In Europe the age of directors like Fellini and Bergman was almost over, and the real innovators would come later. However there are still a lot of great movies in this decade, and I hope to find some good tips here as well.

I guess you mean this:

With the last part you posted it only shows the movie rated by the person who watches the list.
