One of Woody Allen's most obnoxious and boring films yet; but can't deny the several bouts of clever dialogue.

The Border (1982)
A lesser effort from Nicholson but entertaining and intriguing all the same, especially looking at border patrol from today's eyes.

Night Shift (1982)
Keaton proves, once again, how fun of a guy he is. On screen, and I can't help but believe he would be off screen, too.
It is nice to see Winkler get out of the Fonzy role, hopefully he finds better roles, because he was kind of a drip in this one.

A comedy as clever as 'Zelig' but funnier. In fact, one of the funniest scenes of all time lays upon its reels...

Blade Runner (1982)


Ford's narration isn't very effective but for its time, this is one of the coolest futuristic films. Plus, one of my favorite quotes of all time comes toward the end: "...all those moments will be lost, in time, like tears in rain."

This list was created by and in the opinion of Stephen H Koontz

While I didn't see any of these movies until years after they were made, many have become classics. Here are my favorite 50 for the year 1982.
