Wow! There were some fantastic films released in 1985.
From Back to the Future, to Prizzi's Honor through The Color Purple and on to The Breakfast Club (a proper 80's movie if there ever was), the choice was endless. For fans of Sylvester Stallone there were Rambo: First Blood Part II and Rocky IV. We also had the knockabout fun of Jewel of the Nile (actual UK release date 1986). Then there was, the much better than the critics would have us believe, Desperately Seeking Susan, with Madonna and Rosanna Arquette. And the list went on...
These are the top ten grossing films (in the UK) of the year:
Back to The Future
A View to a Kill
Beverly Hills Cop
Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment
Rambo: First Blood Part II
Santa Claus: The Movie
A Passage to India
Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
Desperately Seeking Susan
