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. I would have been 7 when the bulk of these came out. Much like the other meme, like this list, and I will give you a year to do the same.
Started with 49 films. 1984 is a really hard year for me to cut down. Even if it was a top 20 I'd be dropping a few from my list.
Honorable Mentions: Starman, Buckaroo Bonzai, Firestarter, Romancing the Stone, 2010, The Last Starfighter, Conan the Destroyer, Police Academy, Beverly Hills Cop, The Karate Kid, and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
