JSF made a good point, there are classics just about in every decade, so I
told him I would start one for the above-named decades. I'm going to spitball
here, so I may get some out of sequence.

The Day the Earth Stood Still
Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid
They Shoot Horses Don't They?
Chinatown
Days of Heaven
Die Hard
Poltergeist
Superman, The Movie
Batman
E.T.
Going Places (French movie)
The Birdcage
Cat Ballou
Lillies of the Field
The Dirty Dozen
True Lies
Paint Your Wagon - Eastwood sings
Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
Donovan's Reef

Just to get things rolling!

And I'll add
War Games
Pretty Woman

Fruitful period. If a limit is announced, I'll have to whittle away. But I consider my picks to be far better than the dreck that was nominated for Awards during this period.
