1) Once Upon a Time in America
2) Ghostbusters
3) Amadeus
4) Paris, Texas
5) The Terminator



IMO Ghostbusters was the most enjoyable comedy of 1984, if not a wider period.

Two very well done films that impressed me were Mike's Murder (starring Debra Winger) and The Pope of Greenwich Village (starring Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts and a talented ensemble cast).
