The only movie on the list that I saw is The Neverending Story. 5 out of 10. Mostly guesses.

You can go see Labyrinth March 10th and 17th at any AMC theater that shows Fathom Events as it is the 35th anniversary of the film. Next month is "Gone with the Wind" 85th anniversary so it will be in theaters for three nights.

10/10 but I did guess on a couple of them. I saw most of these in a theater in the 1980s except Princess Bride and Legend. Legend is so dreadful I could not last through it on HBO. This was the era of repeated (failed) attempts to pull off an Epic Fantasy movie.

9/10. I missed the last one. Considering, I've only seen #1, #2, #4, #5, and #7, I'd say I didn't do too bad!
