200 Favorite Films of the 1980s

American films of the late 1960s through the 1970s were defined by its counter of traditional old fashioned Hollywood filmmaking and all the myths of the lifestyle and culture of those times. Well, the 1980s American films seem a direct counter to the 1970s, as a modern return of the myths. In the 1980s, genre filmmaking made a triumphant and mainstream return, now in a culture of a whole new technology - one in which speed and thrills were at the center.

The emergence of the "blockbuster", sequels, computer technology, Dolby surround sound, and videos and video rental. Like the arrival of TV in the 1950s and 60s, video would play a critical role in films and the opportunities audiences had to see films as well as the way production companies could market their films.

Look over the list ... I would be very interested in you sending your choices or sharing feedback (did I miss anything?).
