Ten box office number-one films in 1984:
- Police Academy
- All of Me
- Beverly Hills Cop
- Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
- Oh, God! You Devil
Not coincidentally, I'm watching Ghostbusters as I type this. It holds up well, but some of the special effects -- for example, the scene of the monster dog thing running across the street in pursuit of Rick Moranis, which I just saw -- are pretty crude by modern standards. Still pretty damn funny though. Ghostbusters held the top spot for nine weeks, two of which were non-consecutive. Three other movies had non-consecutive number-one weeks: Terms of Endearment, Missing in Action, and Police Academy.
