  2. Indiana Jones is my favorite, I loved movies from the 80s, all so original as apposed to the repeated themes of today.

  3. Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom: Awesome Drew Struzan poster, my favorite Indy film and something that helped pave the way for PG-13 which, for better or worse, affects summer movies to this day. - Josh Hannah (:

  4. Temple of Doom! hands down.. the 80's was a golden period for movies.

  5. Have to say Ghostbusters. The humour, the scares, great cast and an unforgettable soundtrack. Love it!

  6. The 80s has possibly been the best decade of movies, to pick one film from 1984 is so hard. I have it narrowed down to 4, but I think I'm going to have to choose Ghostbusters (sorry Indy, I preferred Raiders!) - Paul Terry
