What were the top ten movies released in the year 1980? As in your favorite top ten, not the most profitable. My top three would be: 1. Empire Strikes Back 2. Raging Bull 3. The Shining My full top ten list and little about how and why I picked each one, plus a list of what were the top ten grossing films of that year can be found at http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/836883/the_top_ten_movies_of_1980.html?cat=40 If you want some sources to browse many of the movies released in that year to see if you agree with my list or to comprise your own, comparing and using both of these links covers a lot of ground: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_in_film http://www.the-numbers.com/movies/index1980.php

I think most people have been (in my responses on other sites) leaning toards Raging Bull as the best movie. I had to go with Empire Strikes Back due to the impressions it left on me as a kid in helping me grow up the Hollywood weirdo that I am ha ha ha Thanks for sharing!

Believe it or not I didn't see any Star Wars film until a couple years ago.My nephew was shocked that I hadn't seen Star Wars, I was shocked that he hadn't seen Casablanca so we showed each other the films.we saw the first two Star Wars. I liked them.
