80’s Movies March Madness: Round 3 — Vote for Your Favorite 80’s Movies

by Trey Davis
March Madness

We’ve made it to round three of 80’s Movies March Madness! MovieBabble has created a March Madness-style bracket to determine the best 80’s movies with the release of Ready Player One this month to determine which film best encapsulates the 1980’s.

With the help of IMDb’s ratings to find the top 16 populist films of the 80’s (i.e. 80’s movies that are beloved by people everywhere), each of the films listed here are ranked from 1 to 16, but you get to have the final say on what is the true #1 80’s movie.

Round two went as expected with the notable exception of Aliens winning as an upset over The Shining by a very small margin of 1%. Now, in round three there are just two matchups, but they are two big ones: The Empire Strikes Back vs. Aliens and Raiders of the Lost Ark vs. Back to the Future.

You can vote according to whatever merits you prefer, whether something is your favorite film or just purely the better film in your mind.

Terminator is better than Back to the Future, IMO. I see it had to go up against Raiders. Tough call there, I could go either way.

Empire Vs Aliens was so easy for me as Star Wars is my life. But Raiders Vs Back to the Future is sooo hard to pick which is my favourite!!!

Star Wars always wins with us 😂👍🏻 I’d like to see your favorites by decade across streaming services. (If you haven’t already done something like that)
