LoC 66 Top 50 80s Movies
« on: November 07, 2012, 06:20:28 PM »
Okay, here we go. LIST OF CRAP time! Uh...minus thirty years or so. This is for the Top 50 80s Movies.

Stipulations:

1. The movie must be a feature length. Since that seems to vary based on where you look, I am going to say 70 minutes or longer.

2. It must have had it's initial release in theaters, video, or TV between January 1st 1980 and December 31st 1989.

3. You must have your list numbered 1 through 25, with 1 being the highest, 25 being the lowest.

4. If there are any alternate titles, let me know as it might help find out information about them.

5. Since it worked so well for 90s Movies, we will have a supplemental list for Most 80s Film of the 80s.

The deadline will be midnight EST November 17th. Submit the list via PM to me. I will be okay with sending them back to you if you have adjustments up to the deadline.

EDIT:Reverted back to original rules.

EDIT: Note that the rule #2 does not specify US release.

Does Porn count or should I save Buttzilla for another list?
Save it for another list.

BTW, don't watch the Buttzilla remake.  The butt keeps changing sizes and doesn't even look like the original butt.  Terrible.

I've already filled up a third of my list with Emmanuelle movies alone!

Seriously though, it's gonna be a massacre of cut downs to get this thing to twenty-five. I listed about fifty right off the top of my head in about five minutes. We could easily do a top eighties comedies list by itself.

Anyway, here's a big ol' list of eighties movies.

As I'm putting the long list together (going through each year and adding several to the list for elimination and sorting later) I'm sort of amazed at how extensive and quasi legitimate Sylvie Kristel's career was for a while back there.

Alright folks, let's be serious here for the moment.

It's the 80s. That means John Carpenter flicks better make up a good fourth of all your lists, easy.

Also acceptable, although at least one of those scratched out films would be quite pissed as a result.

In actual seriousness, I'm going to try and play my list a bit differently to get better representation. I mean, considering the decade and this board, the top half of this list is already decided. Putting some titles, no matter how amazing they are, almost seems redundant. Shoot, to list the big name choices would itself talk up my whole list of 25 (and then some).

So I think I'll deliberately omit some of the more obvious choices (namely those involving whips, sabers, bare feet, true love, and all things heavy) in favor of some other ones. The ones I leave out are there in my heart, naturally, and will still cap off the list. But maybe I can help see to it the lower half gets that much more interesting.

I'll put what my favorite 25 80s movies are, rather than trying to game the list.

I would hope so! If everyone games it, it defeats the point of my little exercise.

I should also be clear, incidentally, that the films I'm listing are also ones I truly, deeply love. All I'm doing is clearing up a little space to fit in a few more of them.

Makes me wonder how many people could really submit a list of 50.

After about the first 15 of any list, I'm just filling in the corners, so it'd become a crap-shoot for me. I mean, sure, I like 50 80s movies probably. But not with enough passion or discernment to say, "well--that one's clearly #47, whereas this is obviously more of a #33-34."

That post is clearly in the #30-#34 range
