Weird 1980s Sci-Fi Films

The 1980's was an era of family friendly science fiction blockbusters. But there was still plenty of weird stuff from lighthearted screwball comedies to horribly bleak depictions of nuclear war.
For the sake of brevity I've tried to avoid listing kids films, major franchises, the numerous rip-offs of Star Wars and Mad Max, horror and B-movies. No judgement on those films I just didn't feel they fitted the list.
Enjoy!
