Responding to Matt Yglesias' bleg, here are my ten favorite movies from the 80s. Not "the best," necessarily, or the "most significant," but my favorite. That is, if I were to be stuck on the proverbial desert island, or for variety's sake, a derelict spaceship, the ten movies I think I would most need to keep it together:

The Long Good Friday (1980)
The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
An American Werewolf in London (1981)
Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Blade Runner (1982)
E.T. (1982)
Fletch (1985)
Raising Arizona (1987)
A Fish Called Wanda (1988)
Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989)

Special Mention (guilty pleasure):
Road House (1989)
