The guys over at Wonders in the Dark are asking readers to submit their top 50 films for the eighties. Some folks have said they had trouble coming up with a fifty films. However, maybe because I grew up during this period, maybe because American film was coming off of its grandest era in the seventies, I found it difficult to keep it down to just fifty. And I definitely can't rank them in anything but alphabetical order.
Those interested in my list can find it in the comments section for the site.
