Blade Runner 1982, R)
Fitzcarraldo 1982, PG)
Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan 1982, PG)
The Thing 1982, R)
Gandhi 1982, PG)
Richard Attenborough's Gandhi begins with the statement; 'No man's life can be encompassed in one telling. There is no way to give each year its allotted weight, to include each event, each person who helped to shape a lifetime. What can be done is to be faithful in spirit to the record and to try to find one's way to the heart of the man'.
The Dark Crystal 1982, PG)
Jim Henson was a master storyteller who?s magical worlds and loveable characters enriched a generations imagination and made many a child happy. I love everything he?s done and still watch this, Labyrinth and the Muppet movies from time to time, it?s a tragedy he died so young but luckily the Henson group are still around and rumours of new productions keep me, and millions of others happy. Just get on with it!!
The World According to Garp 1982, R)
The Year of Living Dangerously 1983, PG)
The Year of Living Dangerously is easily Peter Weir's best film. It certainly got Hollywood's interest and propelled him into the A-list and rightly so, although I've liked very few of his films since. Linda Hunt steals the show, it's funny, I only realised she was a woman a few year later! Brilliant filmmaking.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 1982, PG)
Burden of Dreams 1982, R)
The ultimate making of Documentary, far better than the other 'ultimate' doc Heart of Darkness. It's a shame Les Blank didn't film Wrath of God but then he may not have survived. A must for film makers, wannabe film makers, producers and Werner worshippers. "I'm duty bound to articulate our dreams as a film maker" - Werner Herzog
