41. A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982)
One of Woody Allen's most obnoxious and boring films yet; but can't deny the several bouts of clever dialogue.

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

People who added this item 115  Average listal rating (74 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.5 
26. 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.

Great ensemble cast in a film I was born to write, but unfortunately the film was made when I was born.

13. 48 Hrs. (1982)
Possibly the original buddy cop movie... even though they aren't buddies until the end.

11. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982)


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

People who added this item 301  Average listal rating (172 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.2 
9. The World According to Garp (1982)
A little film that turns epic, about a very abnormal life that questions gender roles.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 401  Average listal rating (258 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 6.9 
8. An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)
I've got no where else to go!
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 2056  Average listal rating (1361 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 8.2 
7. The Thing (1982)
One of the best horror films made. A terrifying setting and story.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 896  Average listal rating (547 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.2 
6. Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982)
Iconic scenes aplenty in this well-written and horrifying (for parents) look into the adolescent mind.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1065  Average listal rating (678 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.4 
5. Tootsie (1982)


Hoffman can do anything, including drag. This film also features Bill Murray in comedic, supporting role.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 1218  Average listal rating (681 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 8.1 
4. Gandhi (1982)


An inspiring epic set in (at the time) a little-known area of the world for Americans.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 3846  Average listal rating (2489 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 8.2 
3. 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."
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 279  Average listal rating (154 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.8 
2. The Verdict (1982)



One of Newman's best performances in a remarkably good film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 5892  Average listal rating (3879 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 7.9 
1. E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)


The film was unstoppable upon its release and it's still insanely popular, and more importantly, good.
Stehako's rating:


 

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.
