I wasn't assigned this but I liked making my top ten of 1980 and decided I'm going to start with my birth year and go from there. Much like the other meme, like this list, and I will give you a year to do the same.
I used IMDb's release date of 1981 - whether or not you will do the same is entirely up to you.
1981 was a hard year to whittle down to just ten. I started with over 20.
I tagged mine with meme10. Also up to you.
