    My wife and I were discussing some great 80s movies and what would be our top 100.
    80s Movies
    What I noticed is a few left off that I thought were great and deserving of a top 100 mention.
    •Top Gun
    •Weird Science
    •The Diner
    Are we missing others?

    I love 80's films, there's just a charm about them with their funky electronic music and big hair.

    Ferris Beulers Day Off is mine. Perfect feel good film from start to finish.

    You know you are old when you saw Ferris Beulers Day Off in theater like I did. For that matter I saw Manniquen as well.

    You forgot lots of Movies. Some ones off the top of my head that have not been mentioned...
    Sixteen Candles
    Back To The Future I,II. BTTF III came out in 1990 so it's not specifically an 80's movie.
    Romancing The Stone
    etc...:cool:

    Hoosiers
    WarGames


    How Chariots of Fire ever got to number 50 is very generous. That movie is about and interesting and exciting as watching paint dry.

    You should add both back to the future sequels, in fact the one playing in the past is my favourite one.
    Also, Manon des sources should be in the list near to Jean de Florette .
