Jon is back (from the future?) to pick favorite movies from every year between 1977 and 1989. A small sample of movies to chose from:

  • The Empire Strikes Back vs Flash Gordon
  • Ghostbusters vs 16 Candles vs Footloose
  • Fletch vs Goonies vs The Breakfast Club
  • Top Gun vs Three Amigos! vs Ferris Bueller's Day Off
  • Princess Bride vs Lost Boys vs Dirty Dancing
  • Die Hard vs Rain Man
  • Batman vs Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade vs Roadhouse

Also, does Back to the Future fulfill scripture prophecy? (no)

Oh and 1984 was an INCREDIBLE year for movies.
