    No, it's amazing. Tbis decade is just far too strong. I didn't think the 70s could be topped, but when it came to making lists, I had to cut so many of my favourites.

    There's 4 films in here that I had on my shortlist, but couldn't fit into the final 10. Robocop was especially gutting. Anyone that hasn't seen Akira should get on it asap. Fantastic animation.

    The Lost Boys was another I was desperate to fit. Amazing soundtrack.

    Glad it’s got a little bit of love off people ha! And 80’s is a superb decade for film, I could’ve listed 30 films I love easily. A great decade all round, for music etc too.

    WarGames! Love that film. Surprised I was the only one with The Lost Boys.

    I think this decade is def the standout for me for favourites. I reckon each of my top four would probably top any of the other lists I've done.

    Obviously an age thing but this is full of garbage so far and not a patch on the films from earlier decades.

    Full Metal Jacket almost made my list, it was one of the last ones chalked off, so none of mine in that bunch, kudos to whoever chose the Pistols film though.

    Full metal jacket was mine, if only for the first 30-40 minutes. Poor private pile

    That was me. No regrets I know it's not a great movie technically but I have great memories watching them as a kid.

    I'm the only one to vote for Spinal Tap..? :eeek What next, two votes for The Goonies?

    Willow and Gremlins have always been favourites of mine. Think Willow was possibly the first film I ever saw at the cinema. Gremlins used to give me nightmares. I love that Gremlins poster.

    It's not a great film in any way whatsoever, but it's your choice. :duke

    None of mine in that latest group.

    Glad Willow made the list. That and my favourite Bond movie were the teo movies I was most upset about having to cut from my list.
