1984: Greatest Year Ever?

Posted on June 24, 2009 by


If you’re a movie nerd then the answer is probably yes. In the newest issue of Toyfare (and I believe also mentioned on Slashfilm and The Totally Rad Show) a ridiculous amount of classic and cult movies came out in the year 1984.  Take a look and see if you agree.

  • Ghostbusters
  • Beverly Hills Cop
  • Gremlins
  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
  • The Karate Kid
  • The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai
  • The Last Starfighter
  • The Muppets Take Manhattan
  • The Neverending Story
  • Nightmare on Elm Street
  • Police Academy
  • Red Dawn
  • Revenge of the Nerds
  • Sixteen Candles
  • Starman
  • Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
  • The Terminator
  • This is Spinal Tap
  • Toxic Avenger

All those plus the birth of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Macintosh and the Marvel Secret War, that’s tough to beat.  If you have any memories of 1984 (and please share since I was -2 at the time) or if you think there’s a year that beats it let us know.

  1. Yes, I generally consider this to be the true starting point of what many refer to as “the 80s”, beginning in ’84 and ending in or around ’94.
