12. Taps (1981)
Cruise shows how crazy he is even at a young age. The mostly-young cast does a great job in this not-exactly-for-kids-movie about kids

10. An American Werewolf in London (1981)
A satire on the werewolf genre. The ending is great.

I laughed through this entire ridiculous movie.

Claustrophobia has never looked so good.

7. Arthur (1981)
I don't understand the attraction of Liza, but Moore is an awesome drunk.

6. Reds (1981)
Beatty, Nicholson, Keaton, communism. This is an impressive epic. I loved watching it, however I wasn't too keen on following a man with such blind idealistic dreams.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 87  Average listal rating (47 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 6.9 
5. Absence of Malice (1981)
An intro that possibly inspired "Lord of War" and one that most definitely inspired the entire "Nothing But the Truth". Newman is brilliant, as usual.

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 243  Average listal rating (152 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.3 
4. The Great Muppet Caper (1981)
I though this was coolest movie ever as a kid.

3. Stripes (1981)
Murray proved he could lead a film to great success, the first of many more...

2. The Fox and the Hound (1981)
The damn movie makes me tear every damn time, I don't get it.

People who added this item 4522  Average listal rating (3053 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.6 
1. Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ar... (1981)
Probably the greatest action adventure of all time, especially since it spawned three sequels and tons of copycats.

Stehako's rating:


 

1981's 35 films that made it the year it was, even if it wasn't that great.
