I'm making the most definitive list of favorite movies ever.

For every year, I'm listing every movie I've seen and compare them all to each other asking one question; Which movie do I like more. Movies that score in the 80th percentile or higher, advance to the next round: Favorite of the Decade. After each Decade is done, an All Time list will be formed.

Favoritest Movies of 1984

Wow, what a year.  When you want to say; 'they don't make them like that anymore!' Point here, 1984.  You will hate parts of this list.  You'll disagree with big segments of it.  You'll cry fowl, question my sanity... but you too will have a handful or two of all time favorites, or movies you just plain love from this year.  I won't go into the winner, as the highest echelon of my favorite movies ever will each get a spotlight essay, and Dune practically has a reserved seat, spoiler, I also hate this movie, and think it has many many flaws.  Either way; 27 years ago today, it came to theaters, and now wins it's year 100%!

Happy anniversary Dune!
