Best War Movies of 1980: Unwrapped Official Best 1980 War Films

Top 10 War Movies Ranked 1980 You Must Watch

Unwrapped’s Offical 10 Best War Movies of 1980 list is finally here (I know it’s been too long). At Unwrapped, we have had the entire team, which part of the employment criteria is a love of movies, make a list of The 10 Best War Movies of 1980. We then put our heads together for over six months and have come up with what I believe are the most significant, most watchable War 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.)
