Ok, I got this idea from AICN where they are celebrating the year 1982 through the genre films. (geeky, Sci-fi, horror etc...)

"...BLADE RUNNER and E.T. and DEAD MEN DON’T WEAR PLAID and THE THING and STAR TREK II and POLTERGEIST and FIRST BLOOD and CONAN THE BARBARIAN and HALLOWEEN III and CREEPSHOW and 48 HRS. and THE DARK CRYSTAL and PINK FLOYD:THE WALL and TRON and FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT Hi...." Ok, not really a genre film but....
Maybe not all amazing films but man, that year was pretty amazing.

Well anyways, I've watched E.T. and TRON and am having a blast.
Gonna continue with the '82 festival....
Might go for Poltergeist next.

Anybody else up for the '82 festival...?
:)

my first post edited for clarity.
Since I was referencing AICN, I took it for granted...

and agreed, Rob. What a great moment in a great film.

1982 Genre...The Bad Musical: Annie and Grease 2 (although personally, I love both of them...I feel so dirty!)

'84 did have a healthy number of memorable films, but I'm not going to hijack a thread about 1982. Now if someone wants to start an '84 thread... :)
