I think you nailed it - that was a great run of movies over those 3 years.

(edit: although Superman II actually was released in the U.S. in 1981. It oddly got a worldwide release starting in 1980 before finally hitting the states during the next Summer.)

1981 has got to be my single favorite movie year.

I too miss the 80s, for sheer enjoyability no decade since has matched it.
