I don’t recall seeing delicatessen on your 90s list
Honestly, it was a surprise for me as well. Not the overall list, but that not many made even my list. But we are attacking this from opposite angles, and that's the fun of it. Horror and action is what I watch in the 80s so if my criteria was the same as your (basically my favorite movies in 1990), it would be about 40% horror. But I did it as what I would grab now, and many of them I watch from the 80s don't entertain me quite as much anymore, or at least they are in the 80-200 range now instead of at the top.I assume same criteria we used, just how much you like the movie/how good you think the movie is?
My criteria are favorite movies from the 80 in the 80s, which means I don't really give a rat's *** whether a movie has aged well or not. Since I grew up in the 80s, it's going to be heavy on blockbusters/sci-fi/action, but I was a weird kid who was also into horror at a young age, so expect a lot of that as well. It works well because horror was a very notably omitted from the first list.
Working on rankings now and will have them to shuke today.
The soundtrack to "Escape From New York" alone should get it a spot in lists!I will be checking and commenting in this one quite often......I expect brilliance when it comes to the next 100 best movies of 80’s that were missed in the first thread.....I am talking full on 80’s glory....melted in cheese and s***tty acting!!!
p.s give me some John Carpenter love in this countdown. He had several omitted.
I am the Duke of NY…..A number one…..A number one!!!!
The Crazies or whatever they were called that lived in the subway freaked out a young General!I am the Duke of NY…..A number one…..A number one!!!!

Warning that I am going to have some movies in here that don't scream "80s" but were movies I enjoyed during the decade. There was a point in my life that I thought Mickey Rourke was the coolest cat on Earth. The trailer really doesn't do the movie justice with that cheesy soundtrack playing.
Agree on the score and Snake Plissken is a great name and has an awesome look. But yeah it hasn’t held up very well. It’s ranking at the back end here makes sense.
Just a perfect blend of horror and comedy with a great atmosphere. One of the many horror movies I saw at way too young an age due to liberal parenting.
