I like how he just threw the end of Star Trek 2 out there. Spoilers were a thing back then, no?
 
2012-12-24 04:53:26 PM  
This is why I'm unimpressed with most things Hollywood does these days. The last decent sci-fi I saw was Iron Sky.
 
2012-12-24 05:03:29 PM  
Wow. Didn't remember 1982 being such a good year for sci-fi flicks.

Did they shift the "Time to die." quote in the Blade Runner trailer? I thought he said that later in the scene when he was holding Ford by the collar?

Yup. Just checked. The line before the punch is "More than you!" (in response to Deckard telling him he only has 4 years to live).

I thought the same thing. WTF? And I just watched that one again night before last. Cried like a baby at the end. Again.

No reboots and everything looks like it was done on film with practical effects and optical compositing, plus look at all those original ideas. fark that noise, when's the new, new Batman coming out?
 
2012-12-24 05:18:42 PM  
Blade Runner, The Thing, Wrath of Khan, awesome. Never really dug ET but most people seem to like it.

Exactly what I was thinking.  And though it's out there fairly early in the movie and fairly obvious, letting us know that Sean Young is a replicant is pretty unkind as well.

"And might I add, Carol Ann gets sucked into the other side but is rescued, ET phones home and is rescued, the two guys that survive at the end of The Thing are left to freeze to death, and Sean Young goes batshiat insane in a few years."

Reminds me of how in one or two week's time in 1989, Batman, Indy, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, License to Kill & Ghostbusters 2 were all released within a week of each other (along with some other big summer movies), all competing against...UHF.

That year was a good vintage. That wine ages well.

As a former resident of that summer, it also had Tron and the Road Warrior

...along with Megaforce, so it wasn't all Elysian fields

It wasn't a spoiler. Everyone went to that movie to see Spock die.

Now all sci-fi has to appeal to such a wide audience that no one seems to like it.  Since there are so many poorly published sci-fi stories out there, the studios are petrified that someone will drop an identical story on their desk with a huge copyright lawsuit if they do anything they don't have 50 years of history for.  That is why the only new sci-fi movies in the last decade were stories like Iron Sky done outside of the influence of Hollywood.
 
2012-12-24 07:42:27 PM  
I saw just about every movie there in the theatre, save for The Thing.  I also lost my virginity in the time period between the releases of Blade Runner and Tron, so overall it was a really good summer.

They put Spock in a replicator to make him young but he only had four years until his genesis torpedo would de-rez.

There was a pretty strong rumor that Spock would be killed in Star Trek 2, which is why they put the Kobayashi Maru scene at the beginning in which everybody "dies" in what looks like a real battle right up until Kirk opens the simulator door. The idea was to give him a fake death scene at the beginning to put the audience at ease, then throw in the real thing at the end and catch them off guard.

If Dio put out Diver Down that year I assume Van Halen made Holy Diver. :)

Geeeez, I can remember going to see 'Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn' in a movie theater which is now a classic/historical play house, fully restored.... I am guessing they wouldn't be too happy with one of us accidently dumping a full, giant Coke over the edge of the balcony right now (actually, neither were the people it fell on 30 years ago).
Saw '48 Hours' that same year I believe; one of the only movies me and my father went to see together.. when the hooker comes out with her breasts in full glory, I naturally yelled out, 'titties!' much to his embarrassment!!

Loved being a moviegoer back then. There was a sense of awe and appreciation for original ideas. Even though most of them were re-imaginings of older ideas, it was a fresh take. If you get a chance to see an upcoming movie called "Upside Down" (due out in March 2013) it's a very cool flick. I saw a screener copy and it may affect you like it did me. A simple Romeo/Juliet story if they existed in the world(s) of M.C. Escher. The most fun I've had in Sci-Fi all year. Whomever made this film happen, we need more of THAT and less of THIS.
 
2012-12-25 12:58:56 AM  
Poltergeist is always going to be an awesome movie
 
2012-12-25 01:37:52 AM  
wow, 1982 was an awesome year.
 
2012-12-25 02:28:42 AM  
Everyone's too afraid to try something bold and lose money so we've just wrung sequels out for 20 years.

If any Hollywood suits read that, they will take it as 'Great idea! Lets make more sequels to all those movies!'
 
2012-12-25 06:10:08 AM  
It felt like they spoiled some major aspects of those movies in that broadcast.

Yup. Just checked. The line before the punch is "More than you!" (in response to Deckard telling him he only has 4 years to live).


I seem to remember the line being used twice, once at each of those points in the movie.
 
2012-12-25 07:55:09 AM  
That was a good summer. My sister's boyfriend snuck me into "Blade Runner", then tried and failed to get me into see "The Thing" (had to settle for Rocky 3 that day). Also saw "Conan the Barbarian" that year, if I recall correctly. Waited for cable on almost all of the rest, except for "E.T.", which I have never seen, nor do I plan to ever see it.
 
2012-12-25 09:53:16 AM  
Notice that with all those movies (with the possible exception of 'Tron), they had good stories that featured cool special effects?

Nowadays it seems to be more of 'lets throw some story together as an excuse to show all these special effects' world....

So a sequel of a movie and a tv episode, an adapted work, and a remake count as "original"?

Sean Young was outed as a replicant in her first scene of the movie.

Reminds me of when I saw The Terminator at the Arcata Theater in early 1985. When Arnold materialized, and walked away from the camera in search of clothes, a young woman shouted out "Ooh baby, turn around." Some quick witted guy in the theater replied "Yes Arnold, turn around and show the world how small you really are." It got a pretty good laugh.
But yeah, '82 was a good movie summer. I saw Khan, ET, Tron, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High in theaters. Fast Times at a theater in a mall in Long Beach that was pretty similar to the one in the movie. I was a senior that fall, but no fast times for me.
