1984 Films

1984 saw some great films.  The second in the original Indiana Jones trilogy, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is perhaps the weakest of the three, although I love the chase in the mining carts.  Three stand out 80's classics were released, Beverly Hills Cop, Ghostbusters and Police Academy.  Interestingly, all three received sequels, with Police Academy getting up to number 6!

The film of the year (1984), starred John Hurt as Winston Smith.  But this wasn't the best British film of the year, that accolade went to The Killing Fields, directed by Roland Joffe and produced by David Puttnam.

Here for your delectation is the list of the top ten grossing films in the UK:

Ghostbusters
Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom
Gremlins
Police Academy
The Killing Fields
Sudden Impact
Terms of Endearment
Greystoke The Legend of Tarzan Lord of The Apes
Footloose
