Firefox (1982)
People who added this item 299 Average listal rating (177 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.6
One of Woody Allen's most obnoxious and boring films yet; but can't deny the several bouts of clever dialogue.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 707 Average listal rating (456 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.2
Some Henson flare to what I think is his weakest effort of a magnificent career.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 721 Average listal rating (481 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.9
Creepshow (1982)
A series of horror shorts that feature some great actors, including Ed Harris dancing.

The Border (1982)
A lesser effort from Nicholson but entertaining and intriguing all the same, especially looking at border patrol from today's eyes.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 147 Average listal rating (100 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.6
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.

Annie (1982)
The music is great, but this movie doesn't quite match its prowess.

People who added this item 1948 Average listal rating (1247 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.3
Poltergeist (1982)
This might have been my first scary movie. Scared the shit out of my seven-year-old self.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 862 Average listal rating (607 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.7
The best of the old Treks

Pryor would be the best toy a kid could have
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 246 Average listal rating (134 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.1
Diner (1982)
Great ensemble cast in a film I was born to write, but unfortunately the film was made when I was born.

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

People who added this item 1322 Average listal rating (806 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8.1
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 325 Average listal rating (200 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 6.9


A comedy as clever as 'Zelig' but funnier. In fact, one of the funniest scenes of all time lays upon its reels...
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1311 Average listal rating (908 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.8
Rocky III (1982)
Yo, times three
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 335 Average listal rating (196 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.2
A little film that turns epic, about a very abnormal life that questions gender roles.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 460 Average listal rating (304 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7
I've got no where else to go!
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 2462 Average listal rating (1696 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8.1
The Thing (1982)
One of the best horror films made. A terrifying setting and story.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 995 Average listal rating (619 ratings) 6.8 IMDB Rating 7.2
Iconic scenes aplenty in this well-written and horrifying (for parents) look into the adolescent mind.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1207 Average listal rating (773 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.4
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 1374 Average listal rating (784 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 8
Gandhi (1982) (1983)


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 4434 Average listal rating (2978 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.1
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 the rain."
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 345 Average listal rating (202 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 7.7
The Verdict (1982)



One of Newman's best performances in a remarkably good film.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 6444 Average listal rating (4429 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.8


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.
