    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.
