  1. I’ll admit to cheating and using a top 100 list to refresh my memory. To my surprise, the films that came to mind not on your list are from consecutive years in the 1980s. Probably says something about when I was most up on pop culture, and how long it takes for a movie to become a classic.
    1982 – Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan – What’s not to love? The original crew, Shatner hamming it up, an over-the-top villain, and a heroic sacrifice. It’s a good solid adventure, with a core scientific concept of creating life from inanimate matter.
    1983 – Videodrome – Yeah, you could call it horror or fantasy, with a healthy dose of kinky sex thrown in. But the core sci-fi concept is mind-over-matter . . . maybe. Max Renn descends into a hell of mutable reality in Toronto, and the big question, when you’re wondering what happens next, is whether he deserves this or not.
    1984 – The Terminator – Arnie, Linda Hamilton learning how to kick ass, cyborgs, time travel, a portentous air of doom hanging over everything . . . except the franchise, they wouldn’t start tanking that until the 3rd movie.

  2. I’d have to add the original Planet of the Apes.
