This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
Welcome to our big list of the most Essential 1980s movies, showcasing 140 of the decade’s best and most iconic Fresh (and not-so-Fresh) movies. That’s right, we recommend some Rotten additions for your ’80s movie playlists, because this is one decade only fully experienced with the good, the bad, and the feathered neon.
Any ’80s movie with a Tomatometer was considered for our Essentials guide, and after including the truly timeless material (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Raging Bull), we focused on works that represented the cinematic trends and social themes of the era. Some of those include the fantasy epic (NeverEnding Story, Princess Bride), teen movies (Breakfast Club, Weird Science), the new corporate overlord (Wall Street, Trading Places), women making strides in the workplace (Baby Boom, Working Girl), and rising hip-hop culture (Krush Groove, Do the Right Thing).
Fire up the flux capicator and cue the workout montage because it’s time for Rotten Tomatoes’ 140 Essential ’80s Movies!
I'm a devoted fan of 80's cinema and during the last five to six years I've seen around 500 - 600 of the most popular or critically acclaimed movies hailing from this decade. Due to this enjoyable movie marathon I've been given the opportunity to re-evaluate these classical movies and measured them against eachother and against modern day standards. The result is highly subjective, but keep in mind that I was/am a man aged 28-33, which to some degree influences what kind of movies I like/liked. Check out the comments section for explanations.
This is a list of the ten most voted movies on IMDb from each year in the 1980's. It gives another perspective than the list with the highest ratings. You could call it more of a popularity contest than a quality contest.
This is a list that displays the top 10 movies for each year during the 1980s according to IMDb when the movies are sorted for highest rating with at least a 1000 votes. Keep in mind that the movies are ranked according to their year. So first it's the top 10 movies from 1980, then the top 10 from 1981 and so forth.
Welcome to Paste’s 80 Best Movies of the 1980s. This list takes into account what the critics and audiences of the time could not—the lasting ripple effects of iconic performances, influential direction and pop-culture sweet spots, as well as some simply overlooked gems. That said, a great performance or popular endearment isn’t necessarily enough. The films on this list must be good, solid examples of their respective genre (and in some cases, the template for said genre).
In Christmas 2010 Empire released a special collector's Edition chronicling all the movies in which they had reviewed and given a five star rating (the highest rating). 69 movies from the 80s were given this honor and the list displays which ones.
This is a compilation of top 10 lists from the forum discussion in the 1980s group from that decade. All movies have to be from the 80s. The way in which the movies are ranked are that 1st place in any individual list gives 10 points, 2nd place gives 9 points and so forth. If the list is in no particular order thenall movies get 5 points. Then all points are added up and we get a top list for the whole group taken together. All movies that make an individual list are included on this list. If points are equal the movie voted on by most members are ranked first. This list will be more valuable for every member that submits their personal top 10. I will update this list every time a member submits or updates their personal top 10.
