    1982: The Best Year For Summer Movies Ever?

    According to many movie critics, it was. Let's examine the evidence.

    Blade Runner

    Conan the Barbarian


    Fast Times at Ridgemont High

    An Officer and a Gentleman

    Pink Floyd: The Wall


    The Road Warrior

    Rocky III

    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

    The Thing


    I think the fact that two of these films have already been remade is a testament to the era, but what do you think, BuzzFeed? Is the summer of '82 worth all the hype?

    ...And if you do think that it is, Austin's Alamo Draft House will be playing each of the movies this summer on the same weekend they were released back in 1982. Pretty cool, if you live in Texas!
