    Obviously there is really only one decade for great movies...

    And so it begins...



    Love this film, one of the classic Christmas movies! Love how the trailer has a narrator. Also, probably my first 'horror' movie [it was scary when I was little!]

    Another one that gave me the shivers... and it is still top quality entertainment!

    Excellent cast, great comedy and great fun!

    Maybe one of only two good Matthew Broderick movies... and another classic!

    This is the great movie ever made... don't bother trying to argue, you won't get anywhere. This is stone cold classic!

    Hans Gruber! Bruce Willis! Alan Rickman doing what he does best! Yippeekayaymother... you get the idea!

    From the same decade as Die Hard this kept it clean, kept it simple and did its job better than you'd think possible.

    James Cameron was just on a roll and what a roll... taking Ridley Scotts haunted house in space into new territory with a Vietnam allegory that went right over my young head. Awesome in its ambition!

    Last entry reminds me of the very old joke:

    Who would you least like to be stuck in a lift with?

    Bruce Willis

    This might be the least known on this list but I love it. I think Die Hard is the best film but this is my favourite. The film is so... perfect. I play this before X-Mas to year 7 when I'm in a good mood and it still goes down well with this modern jaded generation.

    Right at the start of the decade Empire sets a new standard for sequels!

    Then in 1983 my parents take my brother and me on a secret Christmas trip to the cinema and win the prize of 'Best Parents EVER!!!!' with this...



    Except I think that is for the Special Editions so...

    I thought the original Die Hard was the better film.

    I know it has its flaws but I love this film. I think it's probably got my favourite soundtrack.

    The films must be old enough by now to be shown at Christmas.

    I'm sure there are many more but I've done my part... these movies in many ways formed the way I think. They set up how I see the world. Might explain a lot.

    But I like to think if confronted by terrorists I'd retort with a sardonic aside and a fist [I know this isn't true].

    All terrible apart from Alien and BTTF. Also liked War Of The Roses, The Shining, Airplane! and Poltergeist. The rest of the 80s me-stuff got on my wick at the time and grew in wick-on-ness as they acquired "80s classic" status. Breakfast Club? Pretty In Pink? Wanted to slap or shake everyone in it.
