50. Purple Rain (1984)
I think the music is okay but I can't understand why this movie has any appeal outside of that.

35. Garbo Talks (1984)
Bancroft turns in one of her better performances in this odd Sidney Lumet movie about a search for Greta Garbo

People who added this item 434  Average listal rating (314 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.2 
34. Top Secret! (1984)
Not in the Airplane humor territory but still plenty of spoofing laughs to be had.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 10  Average listal rating (5 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.7 
33. The Night They Saved Christmas (1984)
I'm guessing it doesn't hold up but this was an adventure I watched for a few years around Christmas as a kid.

23. 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984)
Scared the hell out of me, but not in the way I'm sure it was intended. They may have made a valid effort to repeat the "2001" Kubrick masterpiece; but it didn't come close.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 127  Average listal rating (86 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 6.7 
22. All of Me (1984)
Possibly the only Lily Tomlin role I've liked. Give credit to Steve Martin

Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 334  Average listal rating (221 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.9 
20. The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984)
They kick this city's ass; but it's only in the middle of the pack as far as Muppet outings go.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 74  Average listal rating (39 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.3 
19. Moscow on the Hudson (1984)
Feels like a missed opportunity for Williams to showcase his talent but many scenes are left unsatisfying.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 372  Average listal rating (209 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.9 
18. The Killing Fields (1984)
A slow burn; but in the end triumphant.

People who added this item 242  Average listal rating (134 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 6.5 
14. The Cotton Club (1984)
Not Coppola's best but a nicely made period piece for sure, and Diane Lane is sexy as hell.
Stehako's rating:

13. Amadeus (1984)
A Blissful run of events intertwined with magical music.

11. Splash (1984)
If the internet was around, Google would have had a huge jump in mermaid porn searches after the release of this film.
Stehako's rating:

2. Ghostbusters (1984)
Great 80s flare in a film that sounds dumb but pulls off its intentions wonderfully.
