1980s – The Golden Age Of Film
For those people that can remember the 80’s, the images are vivid. It was the decade of leg warmers and Olivia Newton-John telling you to get physical. Sylvester Stallone cut off all of his shirts to show off his abs, and so did every teenage boy in the country.
The stars that headlined the cinema were larger than life. The economy was booming so paying top dollar for a ticket and popcorn was easy to do. Guys were using hairdryers to feather their mane and girls were dressing in lacey gloves like the material girl herself.
The movies influenced everything we did, everything we wore, everything we bought…and we loved it. So did the studios apparently, as the box office numbers for the decade were nothing short of astounding. The top grossing movies of that decade are listed here, in no particular order. May the force be with you.
