Definitely has to be 1982 when the following classics were released- Tron - cgi in its formative years, light cycles, flying discs, cindy morgan! ET - speilbergs best (imho) The Thing - Carpenters all time classic Star trek 2 - easily the best trek film ever Superman 2 - again, best of the lot! Blue harvest/aka revenge of the jedi/aka return of the jedi - even though it wasn't released until 83, there was much frenzied anticipation at this point! Bladerunner - arguably ridley's best (after alien) Poltergeist - again original and best. Mad Max 2 - as above 48 hours - again, as above. 1982 - What a year!
