The Year Was 1982! Part II

Here is the second act of films from 1982. For the 1st half, please see my “The Year Was 1982!” post. Enjoy!

Poltergeist (MGM)- This film scared the mess out of me, but it is awesome!! =D

Porky’s (20th Century Fox)- I felt like a bad little girl watching this movie! lol

Richard Pryor Live on the Sunset Strip (Columbia Pictures)- Crude, but always funny!

Rocky III (United Artists)- Sylvester Stallone is fantastic as Rocky Balboa. Mr. T and Hulk Hogan are great support for this movie about boxing.

Survivor’s “Eye of The Tiger” helps make the soundtrack a solid hit!

Sophie’s Choice (Universal Pictures)- I did not see this movie, but it is considered to be one of the greatest films of all time. Meryl Streep earned a Best Actress Oscar for her performance.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (Paramount Pictures)- Ricardo Montalbán makes a fantastic villian! KHAN!!! This is my husband’s all time favorite Star Trek film.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (Universal Pictures)- How can a film not be enjoyable when Dolly Parton and Burt Reynolds are involved in it? =D

This is my favorite version of this song. Whitney is great, but Dolly wrote the song. Beautiful!

The World According to Garp (Warner Bros. Pictures)- A film that has Robin Williams and John Lithgow in it has got to be good! A must see!

Tootsie (Columbia Pictures)- Dustin Hoffman is a riot in this classic hit!

Tron (Buena Vista)- I like this version better than the 2011 one! It is so interesting to see how technology has changed, but I still have a soft spot for what I grew up with! =)

Victor / Victoria (MGM)- I love this film. Julie Andrews is in her element and quite wonderful, but Robert Preston steals the show.


48 Hours (Paramount Pictures)- Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy team up in this comedy about finding a cop killer. Love it!

I hope you have enjoyed this look back at the 1982 theatrical releases. Pick a few of these to watch and have a movie night. Grab some popcorn, candy, soda and put on your pjs. You are set for an outstanding night of fun!

The Year Was 1982!

Do you have your popcorn and soda ready? We are about to dive into some of the Box Office hits of 1982. Here we go!

Airplane II: The Sequel (Paramount Pictures)- The first one is the best, but this is a wild ride as well. =D

Annie (Columbia Pictures)- The little red head orphan who could! Carol Burnett is fabulous! This classic is still a favorite of mine. =)

An Officer and a Gentleman (Paramount Pictures)- Richard Gere and Debra Winger have amazing chemistry. This is romance at its best!

Blade Runner (Warner Bros. Pictures)- If Harrison Ford is on the screen, I was so at the theater! He could read the phone book and I would go! Big crush on him! This is a good film, by the way. =D

Conan the Barbarian (Universal Pictures)- This image cracked me up! Arnold!!

Creepshow (Warner Bros. Pictures)- If Stephen King wrote it, you know it is going to be eerie good! Ted Danson, Leslie Nielsen and Hal Holbrook make a fantastic cast.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (Universal Pictures)- This movie made me laugh and cry! I loved it and still do! =)

Fast Times at Ridgemont High (Universal Pictures)- A classic 80s teen movie! This is how I will always remember Sean Penn! Spicoli!! =D

First Blood (Orion Pictures)- Sylvester Stallone as Rambo! Awesome!! =D

Gandhi (Columbia Pictures)- This was not my kind of film, but it is considered one of the best movies of 1982. Ben Kingsley portrays Gandhi and won an Academy Award for Best Actor. Which one is the real Gandhi? Amazing resemblance!

Grease 2 (Paramount Pictures)- Maxwell Caulfield and Michelle Pfeiffer’s chemistry heat up the screen in this exciting sequel.

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (Warner Bros. Pictures)- This is one of the movies that put Mel Gibson on the map! It is a cool film!

Night Shift (Warner Bros. Pictures)- This comedy has Henry Winkler, Michael Keaton and Shelley Long. Another movie that made me feel I was being naughty watching! Loved it! =D

Pink Floyd – The Wall (MGM)- This is a must see. It is still talked about to this day and it is the ultimate 80s rock ‘n roll film.
