The Princess Bride, Monday 7 May, 12.20pm, Channel 4/HD (CH 104/141)

Look back through any of the past few decades and naturally you’ll find a string of smash-hit films released each year. But the 80s were special. The beats were pumpin’, the fashion was at its flyest and, despite being packed to the brim with blockbusters, it remains one of those rare decades in which the majority of said blockbusters were not just good – but brilliant.


There were side-splitting comedies, skin-tingling thrillers and adventures in a galaxy far, far away. Throw in the countless classic characters, the physics-defying hairstyles and some colour-blinding costumes, and it’s clear this was truly a magical decade in cinema. 

You can celebrate this majestic decade by watching The Princess Bride on Bank Holiday Monday. But first we want to know: what’s your ultimate 80s movie? We’ve picked just ten for you to choose from – savage, we know, but otherwise we’ll be here until the next decade deciding...


What’s your number one?
