Series.
23. ghostbusters / 1984(ivan reitman)
I don't think anyone can live in the 80s and be indifferent to this movie. The film, which is one of the best examples of fantastic cinema, is very special and stands in another place. The film, which also features one of the most well-known and listened soundtracks in the history of cinema, is one of the most referenced films in the Stranger Things series, which we love to watch nowadays.

The movie, in which slyvester stallone, whose determination we had previously admired in the ring with rocky, played as "john rambo", a special operations soldier with a green beret, impressed the audience with its action scenes. The only truly good movie in the rambo series, the production cemented Stallone's stardom and strengthened his bond with the audience.
21. e.t. the extra-terrestrial / 1982(steven spielberg)
Great science fiction made for children, people with child souls and those who refuse to grow up and want to stay children forever like Steven Spielberg.

The film by Wes Craven, the master of horror movies, that threw a generation out of their beds with fear, even frightening them to lie down on the bed. The character of freddy is one of the few horror figures in the history of horror cinema of all time. Besides robert englund's great acting, his make-up and "blade nails" are still more iconic and a must-have for Halloween. This character, which scares even with his green-red sweater, is one of the leading classics of horror cinema.
19. elephant man / 1980(david lynch)
One of David Lynch's early masterpieces. Elephant Man has a special place in American cinema with its cast and extraordinary subject matter. This timid but wise identity, in which the elephant man's terrible appearance is sheltered, was telling about the worthlessness of approaching people according to their physical characteristics and prejudices in the movie. Anthony Hopkins, who played the doctor in the movie adapted from the true story, impressed us as always.

Unforgettable action movie of the era. The corner game that Bruce Willis played with German terrorists in the captured plaza left its audience breathless. Terrorist ringleader, Hans Gruber's cold-blooded demeanor and jokes, john mcclane's hunt for his enemies by talking under so much danger was unforgettable. The character of mcclane, one of the most sympathetic cops action cinema has ever seen, has become a cult with the movies connected to the series.

Commentary on the Vietnam War by Oliver Stone. It is a production that reflects the eerieness of war very well with its platoon, strong cast and tense scenes. The film, in which charlie sheen, especially in the role of a rookie soldier, reflects the traumas she experienced to the audience as real as possible, since a few of the best war movies on vietnam. (The samuel barber composition adagio for strings, which musically describes the tragedy in the movie, was probably one of the most memorable soundtracks.)

It is one of the films that best describes childhood memories and how the events of that period shape people's future.

James Cameron's first Terminator from 1984 certainly didn't make as much noise as the second movie that came out in the '90s.

The dark nightmare of the research team in the white poles. This scary movie with a science fiction theme was about the terror created by a being whose danger was realized too late.

10. full metal jacket / 1987(stanley kubrick)
A delightful film depicting the brutal training of war and the battlefield resembling the pits of hell, dehumanizing man and turning him into another creature. In kubrick's vietnamese movie, it is portrayed that killing a person causes destruction and that something of yourself dies after the murder, and you will never be able to return to your old self.

7. aliens / 1986(james cameron)
the sequel that we viewers got lucky. If the sequel to the 1979 ridley scott masterpiece alien had been directed by any other director than james cameron, we would probably have seen a bad serial. This wonderful touch that cameron added to the story made us watch a great science fiction masterpiece in the second movie after the first one. Aliens is an action-hungry sequel with a different kind of beauty from the first movie.
- raging bull / 1980/imdb (Martin Scorsese)
Can scorsese and de niro meet and it'll be a bad movie? The film that won Robert De Niro an Oscar for Best Actor was the biographical story of legendary boxer Jake Lamotta.

The most beautiful state of the fantasy universe. This amazing universe created by george lucas was striking with its originality and cuteness. The series, which had a lot of side characters and depicted "the two sides of the force" very well, was undoubtedly the 1980's "emperor", the biggest one ever filmed. This ultra-powerful universe, decorated with the great compositions of John Williams, was a proof that cinema had a high impact on the life of humanity. "star wars", which has been in our lives for about 45 years, is a phenomenon that has been followed by millions and will continue to be watched for centuries.
3. back to the future + back to the future part ii / 1985/imdb - 1989/imdb (robert zemeckis)
A rare film of science fiction cinema that breaks new ground in positivity and fills one's heart with happiness. This amazing production by robert zemeckis has been every kid's/teenager's dream.

One of the first movies that comes to mind when it comes to atmosphere. ridley scott's this magnificent film was pulling people into its own darkness with the atmosphere it created. The film became a reference to so many articles, theses, scientific publications and studies. From fine arts to architecture, from engineering to philosophy, from psychology to sociology, the film has taught us all, like a living organism or an online teacher. We realized how important our childhood/youth memories are, and that our photos and videos from previous years are more valuable than millions of dollars. because the identity of man as a social being was actually his most valuable treasure. Filled with the music of the great musician Vangelis, which compels the human consciousness, this film was one of the greatest cinematic events of all time, incorporating cyberpunk, dystopia, science fiction universe and artificial intelligence, forcing people to think with its deep philosophy.
