The Contenders: Page 2

21 Blue Velvet

Deep, dark, and emotionally questionable choices. Probably one of my favorite movies.

22 Rocky IV
23 Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
24 Batman

Should be higher because this is fantastic

25 Top Gun

One of the most popular movies of the 1980's - MatrixGuy

Nothing like it before it came out and nothing like it since.

26 Sixteen Candles

A girls older sister is getting married so all the attention was focused on her older sister so everyone forgets her 16th birthday

This is absolutely the best movie ever! Jake Ryan is gorgeous!

27 Airplane

Maybe the best comedy of the 1980's - MatrixGuy
