Left off the list was Total Recall, which premiered in 1990.

I’m especially happy with this list because it includes movies I haven’t seen. I’m also taking a bit of an Internet break in September and the 1980’s were a time without Internet for most. My plan is to watch the movies in order by year and maybe I’ll post in a week or two (or three!) how the viewings went.
