With Super 8 flying the Amblin flag this week and bringing back a family adventure mood not felt since the company’s heyday, I thought I’d find out what our readers think is the best film they produced in the 80’s. It’s a tough call, there are a lot of films I have a great deal of nostalgia for. I’ve included all of them pre-1990 so no ‘other’ selection. Any thoughts, please add them to the comments section.

    That was a tough call, but I went with Back to the Future. I love that film and I’ve seen it a couple of times recently and it holds up well. I imagine a few of the others have dated somewhat. Gremlins, Roger Rabbit and The Goonies were others I considered. I keep changing my mind about E.T.

      Man, I had a really, really hard time choosing between Gremlins, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Goonies, ET, and Back to the future. And I guess if we were consulting 8 year old me American Tale would rank high.

      I do now remember sending you some late night email about how great Back to the Future was once upon a time, David.

    I think you did. It’s one of my all time favourites. I think the second one is really underrated too. The third one has it’s moments, but it gets a bit sappy with Doc Brown’s love story.
