Movies of 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, and 1987




There are about four weeks left in this year, 2019. I am a big fan of movies, but I've rarely been to the movies in the past five years. There have been some great movies, like The Joke, Darkest Hour, Wind River, The Revenant, and others, but when I think back to the past I remember the massive wave of quality and fun movies in the mid-80s. I was ten years old and I had the good fortune of seeing many awesome movies during that time, many of which I've seen many times since.

In my mission to introduce (or reintroduce/reinspire) cool stuff, today I'm going to post a list of significant movies of many genres from that awesome era. I wish this many great movies came out now, but times have changed and creativity has waned.
