Excellent Films of the 1980s

GREETINGS PROFESSOR FALKEN. Here is every 80s film I've rated 8+ at IMDB. I don't give eights easily so these are in general all great films without the usual 80s shlock you can find from various lists for the decade. Having said that, there are some nostalgic favorites which I just had to rate high... I hope you find some new favorites from this list as well.
The list is in chronological order.
I also included end of the list my top three miniseries & the best TV series and finally the most watched TV series of the decade.
