Related to yesterday’s post about the evolution of the modern blockbuster movie, a list of the most popular movies from 1984 (according to IMDB). Among them:

Beverly Hills Cop
Ghostbusters
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Gremlins
The Karate Kid
Police Academy
Footloose
Purple Rain
Amadeus
Revenge of the Nerds
Red Dawn
The Terminator
The Killing Fields
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Sixteen Candles

Top Secret!

That’s a pretty good year. My God, the pop culture references.
