Top 100 Movies Made in 1984 – Why Was 1984 The Best Year of Movie Making Of All Time?

The reason why so many movies exist today is because the movies of the early 1980’s, specifically the year 1984 had a huge impact on the whole industry. From original Terminator to The Karate Kid. So many movies came out in 1984, that a majority of them moved in and out of the theaters quickly. And, only when they hit the Video rental stores, is when “cult-classics” became a thing. I remember LOL
