I have found it to be quite a difficult challenge to find a "Best of the 80s" movie list. Since most movie lists are either personal or opinions of critics, I decided to take a different approach and let the numbers do the talking. I came up with this list using an IMDb sort for the entire decade and averaged the IMDb rating with the Metacritic User's Rating, the Rotten Tomatoes Critics' Rating, and the Rotten Tomatoes Users' ratings.
I know that some of you will notice that some "Key 80s Movies" are missing, but I was looking for a more all-encompassing list that has a little bit of everything in it. I'm mostly satisfied with the results and I hope you are too.
