1980s - What was the best movie of the decade?

  Like me, I'm sure you view many movie polls with disbelief and a slight chuckle, as you dismiss their results with a quietly whispered "yeah, like they even sat through the movie..."

Well, on another website I write for, The 80s Movie rewind we've just held our own poll, to determine what we, as a bunch of people that love the decade and the movies that it gave us, consider the best of a great ten years.

We had some great movies mentioned, and in all, 126 different movies were voted for. There are some really good movies that didn't even get a look-in, and many that will no doubt provoke surprise and comment.

So anyway, we need winners, and so here you go....

1. The Breakfast Club
2. The Goonies
3. Ferris Beuller's Day Off
4. Sixteen Candles
5. Back To The Future
6. Some Kind Of Wonderful
7. Fast Times At Ridgemont High
8. Valley Girl
9. Better Off Dead
10. Stand By Me
11. St Elmo's Fire
12. Pretty In Pink
13. Adventures In Babysitting
14. The Lost Boys
15. License To Drive
16. Big Trouble In Little China
17. Breakin'
18. RAD
19. Real Genius
20. The Secret Of My Success

The heavy loading of John Hughes movies won't be a surprise, but the omission of movies such as Batman, Die Hard, Planes Trains & Automobiles, and Friday 13th, will no doubt raise a few eyebrows. Comments on the above are of course welcome here.....
