Being only ten at the time I obviously wasn't allowed to see Jaws, but that didn't stop me from cutting the movie ad of the newspaper. In my opinion it is one of the most effective movie posters of all time.
After the success of the movie version of Battlestar Galactica the producers promptly shoved a few more TV episodes together and released them theatrically as Mission Galactica: The Cylon Attack. I loved it. It was far better than many of the b-grade Star Wars rip-offs around at the time.
Moonraker was criticised as being one of the more silly Bond films but I thought it was the best Bond ever. It was a little bit racy (hey I was fourteen), it had lots of spaceships and explosions and it had Roger Moore. Yes, Roger Moore.

This was the Empire Strikes Back of the Alien franchise: an unbelievably good sequel. One of the very few films I went to on its opening day (The others being Star Trek IV and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome)

I hate to admit it, but Return Of The Jedi just didn't have the same magic of the previous two Star Wars films. I still loved it, but something was missing. Perhaps I'd just outgrown it. Or perhaps it was the Ewoks. Yes, it was the Ewoks.
