Tough one, it all comes down to The Burbs, Glory, Batman and Field Of Dreams. I think I'll go with Field Of Dreams, although not by much.

I've gone for Dead Poet's Society.

Though Glory is certainly up there, and i think if Michael J Fox wasn't in Casualties of War, as much as i love him in most of his other films,  i think it would have been a great great movie. Love the original score.

I'm not sure yet but I really wish I had watched Kiki's Delivery Service so I could vote for it.

Recollections of the Yellow House, though I might give my vote to Crimes and Misdemeanors if it has a chance of winning.

Suck the marrow from life!  Take the road less traveled and vote for The Dead Poet's Society!  One of the greatest films ever made!

Crimes and Misdemeanors

A toss between C&M and Do The Right Thing, the 2 best American films of the 1980s.
