Thought-provoking list of 1980s movies that shaped our humanity

YouTuber Pop Culture Detective has a lovely video essay up on 1980s movies that shaped our humanity, and he chooses five often-overlooked favorites of his. What films would you list? His choices are:

• The Journey of Natty Gann (1985)
• Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (1984)
• Amazing Grace and Chuck (1987)
• Harry and the Hendersons (1987)
• *Batteries Not Included (1987)

If I were to name some accessible films from that time with humanitarian themes, off the top of my head I'd say:

• The Elephant Man (1980)
• E.T. (1982)
• Hoosiers (1986)
• Wings of Desire (1987)
• Field of Dreams (1989)
