They were all sequels this year, notice that?
Why do some of these have promos for future shows, since it is never for the show that’s about to air? And why are there dark spots?
Funny thing I must mention: They dump on sequels here, but Gene’s last Best film of the year was a sequel!!!!!! So there have been sequels that have worked, but not many.
Oh, so they did honorable mention for the other titles you have listed here. I didn’t remember that.
1983 had one good sequel: Return of the Jedi. The rest of them have been trash for the most part. Staying Alive was the worst of them, IMO! Having Stallone writing and directing it was a horrific decision.
I forgot The Sting II even EXISTED! It only took this show to remind me!
The way Spielberg’s 1975 classic was trashed is downright offensive! Jaws 3 and 4 didn’t even TRY to be good. They were just money-grabbing attempts and nothing more!
That Dorito’s commercial had Brian Backer-Rat from Fast Times at Ridgemont High!
1983 was not a great year for movies. Too many sequels, too many 3D films, and too many crappy special effects flicks.
No, there were some good films: Terms of Endearment, The Right Stuff (best picture, I thought), WarGames, Return of the Jedi, The Big Chill, The Dresser, Testament, Trading Places and Risky Business to name several.
