I love the 80's (but hate VH1 shows with that title)

Yglesias has a post where he, for mysterious purposes, asks readers to name "...their ten (or five, or whatever) movies released in the 1980s." The exclusion of best or favorite after ten is not a typo on my part, and I don't know if it's intentional on his. In comments to his post I answered, in no meaningful order:


Raiders of the Lost Ark
Do the Right Thing
Once Upon A Time in America
Blood Simple
House of Games
Die Hard
Blue Velvet
Bull Durham

I may have been wrong in excluding:
Crimes and Misdemeanors
The Princess Bride
Many others which I have forgotten
