A group for lovers of movies from the 1980s in order to share opinions, lists, perspectives and hidden gems. I chose the Rubik's cube as the group's avatar since it was launched internationally in 1980 and became such a hit in that decade.

Anyway, I have more to add from the 80s.
1) Benji The Hunted. I just love that movie. I can't believe I never saw it until about 3 months ago. It is actually in my top 3 movies of all time.
2) Midnight Run. Maybe one of DeNiro's forgotten movies, but a great one. Funny and great acting.
3) The Last Unicorn. I am not a fan of most animation, especially CGI, but this movie has a great look. Plus, it is not just for children. Actually, I think most it will go over the heads of children and may be too scary for the youngest.
4) The Plague Dogs. Another animated movie from 1982, but definitely not for kids. Great movie though.
5) The Bear aka L'ours. I just love this one. Amazing cinematography and performance by the animals.
6) Arthur. One of the funniest movies ever. Plus you get to see New York in the 80s.
8) Empire Of The Sun
9) The Terminator
10) Predator 1 year 10 months ago
