Of course, rather…

6 Must See Movies from 1989

Tweet by Joel G. Robertson Evil Dead 2 was part of a triple feature on HBO Halloween night, 1989. I remember it so vividly. It was not only the last Halloween where I trick or treated, but it was also my first official introduction to Ash, The Book of the Dead, Sam Raimi’s deliriously wonderful, hyperkinetic filmmaking, and when I…

6 Must See Movies from 1987

Tweet by Joel G. Robertson 1987. What a great year for movies! Because I’ve been getting so much great feedback and movie recommendations in the comments section of these “6 Movies You Must See” posts, I’m going to keep the opening short and sweet. It’s enough to say that 1987 was another banner year that brought us some great movies.…

6 Must See Movies from 1986

Tweet by Joel G. Robertson 1986. This year was not nearly as difficult as the previous two when it came to making my selections. Not to say I didn’t have a wide variety to choose from, including barely remembered oddities and “once upon a time hits” that people struggle to remember. Truth is, I wasn’t really sure what direction I…

6 Must See Movies from 1984

Tweet by Joel G. Robertson 1984. Also known as the year that made this series of posts TOO DAMN HARD to put together. Why? Well, I suppose that this year marks the moment I became a true film fan. It’s the year I have the most collective memories about; especially when it comes to going to the movies. Be sure…

6 Must See Movies From 1983

Tweet by Joel G. Robertson 1983. The year of the Jedi… As the always insightful @OldSchool80s pointed out in his comment on last Friday’s post, as we wade our way deeper into that decade of decadence it’s going to get harder and harder to narrow down this list of must sees to only 6 movies per year. So, I’m thinking…

6 Must See Movies From 1982

Tweet by Joel G. Robertson 1982. Perhaps the single greatest year, collectively, for sci-fi, fantasy, and horror films. A bold assertion? Yep, but it’s also true. Here’s a quick rundown of genre movies released that year. Share

6 Must See Movies From 1981

Tweet by Joel G. Robertson 1981. The year that gave us the greatest action-adventure film ever committed to celluloid and one of my top five favorites of all time: Raiders of the Lost Ark. I almost put Raiders on this list, but everyone’s seen Raiders of the Lost Ark, right? No, my film-lovin’ friends, I’m afraid not. So many of…

But first, we’ll be talking about 6 more movies you must see before you find yourself doing the poor man’s Limbo (How low can you go? Six feet low…). This week I’m recommending movies from…

6 Must See Movies From 1977

Tweet For the next several weeks, I’m going to emerge from the dimly lit lobby of the Mall Twin Movie Theater and lay down six movies, each from a different genre, that everyone should check out before they kick the proverbial film canister. Of course, I include myself in that class since I’ll be listing some I’ve only seen bits…
