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_filmhttp://www.the-numbers.com/movies/index1980.php
