IMDb's Top 10 Movies of the 1980s

Yesterday I posted my top 10 movies of the 1980s. Here's IMDb's version, followed by rating and ranking:

  1. Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back (1980): 8.8; 11th place
  2. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981): 8.6; 27th place
  3. Back to the Future (1985): 8.5; 44th place
  4. The Shining (1980): 8.5 46th place
  5. Aliens (1986): 8.4; 57th place
  6. Das Boot (1981): 8.4; 72nd place
  7. Cinema Paradiso (1988): 8.4; 73rd place
  8. Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983): 8.3; 78th place
  9. Once Upon a Time in America (1984): 8.3; 79th place
  10. Full Metal Jacket (1987): 8.3; 81st place

“Return of the Jedi” still makes the cut. Funny.

Funnier? The movie between “Back to the Future” and “The Shining” is something called “Citizen Kane.”

Oedipal issues in "Back to the Future"

Charles Foster Kane had mother issues, too.
