Help name the top 80 sci-fi movies of the '80s



Blade_runner Blade Runner. The Empire Strikes Back. The Abyss. Anyone can name a half dozen great sci-fi movies of the '80s. But can you name 80 great sci-fi movies of the '80s?

We're going to find out.

I want to pull together the ultimate list of science fiction flicks from our favorite decade. And, of course, I need your help. For every E.T., we need to recognize The Quiet Earth. For every Jedi, there's also an Iceman.

Some guidelines: It needs to be a movie released from 1980 to 1989. It can be from any country. It can even be animated, so long as it's a feature-length movie. And it needs to be sci-fi, and NOT fantasy. (So no Willow.) And sci-fi comedies count. Sequels are eligible, too, even if the original movie appeared in a previous decade.

Submit as many movies as you want, but try to at least rank your personal top 5. I'll release the top 80 ... sometime before Tron Legacy hits theaters, I promise.
