[Event] Best Movie of the 80's

Post by H03nn89 » 10 Jun 2020, 14:13

Hey guys! 

There's much debate about which movie's are the best of their decade. So this one as stated, is with regards to the best movie of the 80's. 

I took some of the top rated movies from Empire magazine, so let's see if we are all in agreement shall we?

Every day, I'll pit 2 films against each other, and you guys comment below on which one you think was better. The one with the most comments will progress. We'll keep this going until out eventual winner.

Let's see what is the most popular film...

The 20 films are:
  • Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark
  • Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Raging Bull
  • Blade Runner
  • Back to the Future
  • Die Hard
  • Aliens
  • E.T.
  • Ghostbusters
  • Evil Dead 2
  • The Shining
  • The Princess Bride
  • Rambo: First Blood
  • Terminator
  • Predator
  • Beverley Hills Cop
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • When Harry Met Sally
  • A Nightmare on Elm Street
  • Gremlins
If you're interested in taking part, let me know below and I'll make sure to tag you!

Thanks guys  :)

Awesome thanks guys!

Just going to wait for a bit more interest, anyone got a mention list handy of who would be interested?

I thought that. This was from Empire, so not sure why they didn't put Full Metal Jacket on there. Next time, I'll make sure to use some other sites I think.
