100 Greatest '80s Movies of All Time

It's kinda crazy that a decade once labeled "the death of cinema" by critics, who accused it of killing the auteur era that produced twenty years of masterpieces by ushering in the age of the big-budget blockbuster, has now become the dominating force in pop culture. It has a stranglehold on nostalgia with no signs of letting go any time soon. While it is admittedly annoying that it's so pervasive throughout every form of entertainment nowadays, it's also not hard to see why creators have been obsessed with it for such a long time. Simply put, no other decade has produced as much material for nostalgia than the '80s. I'm not just talking about the iconic characters, either. Every beloved classic that's stood the test of time feels like it has at least one thing designed solely to stick with you forever. This is the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time, according to ScreenAge Wasteland. (ranked in reverse order: so the 100 spot --- Raging Bull --- ranked #1 on the list)
