This top 5 really got me in my feels because this is truly one of my favorite, if not all out favorite, personal movie year for me. As a sci-fi/fantasy buff, 1982 was absolute heaven. I can remember actually seeing these films as if I had saw them yesterday and I swear, it seemed as though I was going to the movies EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND. Just to mention a few:
Conan the Barbarian
An Officer and a Gentleman
Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
Last but not least, Friday the 13th, Part 3, in 3D no less; some of the best 3D I've ever seen and one of the best in the franchise. Seriously, it got a little dusty for me listening to this Top 5.
I have to give a special shout out to my beloved Fast Times at Ridgemont High, a film that was released in 1982 but I didn't get to see it in the theaters. I saw it for the first time on cable in 1983 and it was love at first sight. I could've kicked myself for not experiencing it for the first time in a theater. Now that could be a good Top 5; films we saw on some other medium that makes us wish we had seen them first in a theater (I'm sure you could find a better way to word that. lol).
One question. What was up with the out of order presentation of this Top 5? Maybe you stated a reason and I just missed it. It just seem annoying. What was the point of that?
