    Something like this, with the usual caveat that some of these may be released in other regions (I really don't keep track these days). This list is somewhat heavy with genre films, but I don't think that is necessarily a bad thing...

    Atlantic City
    The Elephant Man
    Dragonslayer
    Gallipoli
    The Year of Living Dangerously
    The Keep
    Local Hero
    Tender Mercies
    The Hitcher
    The Abyss


    - Walter.

    I'm more into Hollywood's Golden Age, so this isn't a decade that has many movies that I love. And most of what I'm fond enough of to want to own are happily already out on the format, like Baby Boom. But here are three that come to mind.

    -Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (and Don't Come Back!!)
    -Murphy's Romance
    -The Night They Saved Christmas

    That last one is a tv movie, but I would love to see a proper home video release on Blu-Ray. It barely made an appearance in North America on DVD since the release disappeared so quickly. And it apparently looked worse than the 80's VHS release and had a messed up aspect ratio.

    And not just an incorrect aspect ratio. It was butchered even further as I recall with some sort of foolishness like a 4:3 transfer stretched to 16:9.

    Needless to say, I skipped buying that DVD...

    I don't think any of these are on Region 1 Blu-ray; I don't have a Region-free player, so I'm only interested in Region 1 Disks. Some of these may not have ever hit DVD:

    The Abyss (1989)
    Some Kind of Wonderful (1987)
    Memoirs of a Survivor - very obscure post-apocalyptic drama, starring Julie Christie (1981)
    Gleaming the Cube (1989)
    Permanent Record (1988)
    Ruthless People (1986)
    Light of Day (1987)
    That was Then, This is Now (1985)
    The Wraith (1986)
    RAD (1986) - still never seen this film, due to not having found a viable copy on DVD
