The Lot's Top 100 '80s Movies

This is the Lot's discord official list of their top 100 '80s films!

Rules:
For simplicity’s sake: If it’s on Letterboxd, it is a film, and if it’s released in the 80s (according to them), it is eligible. The points allocation will be as follows:

1st place: 7 pts
2nd - 3rd place: 6 pts
4th – 5th place: 5 pts
6th – 10th place: 4 pts
11th – 15th place: 3 pts
16th – 20th place: 2 pts

Ties will be broken by the number of lists the film is on, then the highest rank achieved on any list, the second-highest rank achieved on any list, and so on. If it’s still tied, it will be sorted alphabetically and…
