I think that most of the 80's movies in particular have probably aged and dated the worst. I think that 70's movies like Taxi Driver, The first two Godfathers, Chinatown, etc, are timeless, but I kind of cringe when I rewatch The Star Wars (And even Indiana Jones.) movies, etc. So, what are the best movies from the 80's that have stood the test of time? My favorite movie from the decade would probably be Once Upon A Time In America (The REAL, uncut and unedited version.). I think that Blue Velvet (Another favorite.) would still hold up. Even one of my favorites like The Stepfather (With a FANTASTIC Terry O'Quinn!) doesn't really hold up all that well. I still have to catch Raging Bull, which is considered by many to be the BEST movie of the decade.

What do you guys think?

Star Wars and Indiana Jones are fun popcorn flicks.

I think perhaps perceptions of Star Wars may be a bit jaundiced after waht Disney has done with movies 7 and 8

Back to the Future trilogy, always fun to watch especially when you realize that Doc Brown knew or had a good idea of what was to come in those movies.

Wrath of Kahn is about the only Trek movie I can still watch

TRON: always fun

TOP GUN and Days of Thudner: they were dumb then and now
