Iconic/Most Popular 80's Films

List compiled using Buzzfeed's "Iconic 80's" film list, the most popular 80's films on Letterboxd, personal suggestions from friends and elsewhere on the internet.

I compiled this list in order to better keep track of my goal to watch more iconic films (lists will be separated out by decade).
