The 1980’s Film Alphabet

Very cool info graphic made by Stephen Wildish, put on his tumblr, probably for Christmas. Although I’m not a big fan of the 1980’s, as it has produced too much bad music and bad fashion to overcome the¬†positives, the movies of that era do rock, in their own special way.

Films like Back to the Future, Rambo and Ghostbusters (got you started with a few easy answers) are pretty easy to spot even for those born deep in the 1990’s, but some of these films are a bit harder to figure out. Sometimes because they didn’t stand the test of time so well, some because the drawing is a bit too general or vague.

So we have 26 films, some more known than others, some easy to identify in seconds, some quite a lot harder or even close to impossible. Don’t get discouraged and have no fear. We’ve got the cheat sheet below.
