I love all this movies. I voted Driving Miss Daisy. (For Jessica Tandy)
But my favorite 80's movie is The Empire of the Sun;)

I really like Ordinary People, but I gave a slight edge and the vote....to Terms Of Endearment. I still cry everytime I watch that. The hospital scene where Shirley McClaine starts yelling at the nurses to give her daughter some pain medicine just breaks my heart.
