I remember a quote from Empire film magazine that said "If you don't like Back to the Future, it's difficult to imagine you like films at all".
We all seem to like it.

I don't think I can pick any top films of the 80's. Too many were great...I feel the same about the 70's...

We're moving this topic to our TOP 10 LISTS forum because this forum is getting waaaaay busy and also because topics about the BEST OF.. or WORST OF.. could probably go there first anyway...

Thanks!
