See what I mean about the 80s being distinct ? No way would another decade have a collective top 10 in which 8 of my films would feature.

Anyway, thanks Shryke for pushing Die Hard to the top. A film I could watch daily and enjoy just as much. It's the pizza of 80s movies. Pity so few action films understand why it works and thus come close to its brilliance.

That was a remarkably close finish for the #1 spot. I thought if anything was going to beat The Shining it would be Empire, but Die Hard made a strong push at the end. It's a ton of fun, just not something I'm emotionally attached to in any way.
