Nightman’s Top Ten Films Of 1980

Greetings, Glancers! We continue my new series of posts which will detail my favourite films of every year since 1950. Why 1950? Why 10? Why anything? Check out my original post here. As with most of these lists the numbering doesn’t really matter much, though in most cases the Number 1 will be my clear favourite. As I know there are plenty of Stats Nerds out there, I’ll add in some bonus crap at the bottom but the main purpose of these posts is to keep things short. So!

10: The Big Red One (US) Sam Fuller

9: Cannibal Holocaust (Italy)

8: Kagemusha (Japan)

7: The Watcher In The Woods (US/UK)

6: The Elephant Man (US)

5: Raging Bull (US)

4: The Blues Brothers (US)

3: The Shining (US)

2: The Fog (US)

1: The Empire Strikes Back (US)

How Many Of My Films Were In The Top 10 Grossing Of The Year: Two (including the top grossing film)

How Many Of My Films Were Nominated For the Best Picture Oscar: Two

    Great list 🙂 Glad to see Raging Bull and The Shining in the Top 5 🙂 Nevertheless, you should have added Brian De Palma’s Dressed to Kill and Walter Hill’s The Long Riders to the list. Other than that, you did a great job 🙂 Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂

      Dressed To Kill was close to being there but I didn’t have enough other films I loved to bring it up to an even twenty.

Tell it like it is!
