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 8 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.
Starting at 59 movies, I actually had less work cutting 1985 down than I did 1984. A lot of decent films from this year, but not as hard to drop them from my top 10.
Honorable Mentions: Return of the Living Dead, Fright Night, Silverado, Commando, A Room With A View, Runaway Train, Explorers, Silver Bullet, My Science Project, Legend of Billie Jean, and My Beautiful Laundrette
