Welcome to an exciting year-long project here at The Nerdy. 1982 was an exciting year for movies that gave us plenty of movies that would become cult favorites and cult classics. It was also the beginning of a major shift in cultural and societal norms, and it still resonates to this day.
We’re going to pick and choose which movies we’re showing, but now the list is nearly forty.
Yes, we’re crazy, but 1982 was such a great year for the movie.
Articles will, in most cases, be published on the same day the films were shown in theaters in 1982 as their true 40th anniversary. All movies are also watched again for the purposes of these reviews and are not made from memory. In some cases, it will be the first time we really see them.
This time, it’s October 15, 1982, and we’re about to see loves a child And the Android!
Quick side note: Since we launched this series this year, we’ve figured it out Vintage video podcast They do the exact same project with two differences: first, the sound (naturally), and second, they do every major movie. We’ve listened to many episodes and it’s fun to check their ideas against mine. Check them out on the Vintage Video Podcast.
The early 1980s were a golden age for science fiction. Everyone was looking for whatever they could come up with to capitalize on the success of Star Wars. While some were successful, others were horrific. Often times you’ll get one as halfway as possible.
I’m sure you can find out where Android Expired.
The story follows Max, an illegal robot on a space station whose curiosity about sex is growing. Fortunately, a ship full of criminals arrived and a woman happened to be one of them. So it’s time for Max to try to pick up a woman.
It’s awkward as you might expect.
Meanwhile, the doctor who built Max is working on a female Android named Cassandra Wan. The Doctor now hopes to imprint it on Maggie, the female criminal, so that she will be more human-like.
Honestly, the movie is so good, it’s just halfway in quality that you just don’t care. I’m usually 2 weeks before this review in my view, and when I saw it needed to be written, I had to go find a picture so it reminded me of what the story was. It is really disposable entertainment which was very popular in this era.
You can thank the advent of the video store for a lot of that because it allowed for an onslaught of completely forgotten movies where everyone knew someone was going to rent it on a Friday night.
loves a child
loves a child It would have been an engaging movie, but didn’t understand what it would take to get through that target line.
Based on the true story of a woman who entered prison and had to fight to keep her child with her when she was pregnant by a guard, the movie pushed the important part back. I like quite a bit of the backstory in a lot of cases, and knowing how the characters got to where they are, but loves a child He spends so much time on this part that the child/court case ends with only about 30 minutes of a 96 minute movie. It squeezes out the most interesting part of the story and leaves you feeling unfulfilled.
At the script level, at the production level, and at the editor level, many of these issues could have been corrected. Instead, we end up with two very bloated first and a very rushed third.
All performances are excellent, and Amy Madigan stars as Terry Jean Moore, but she and everyone else let down a very shaky script that doesn’t seem to get the job done.
1982 movie reviews will be back on October 22 with first bloodAnd the Halloween 3: Season of the WitchAnd the sender!
