Unwrapped’s Offical 10 Best Adventure Movies of 1980 list is finally here (I know it’s been too long).

We then put our heads together for over six months and have come up with what I believe are the most significant, most watchable  Adventure Movies of 1980. Ultimately this is my opinion, and I am open to feedback; however, I am pretty sure any true movie fan will agree with me. (Yes, that’s designed to irritate you, so you comment.)
