Movie of the Year: 1982

State of the Franchise

Let's check in on the state of the franchise in 1982!

Film franchises weren't as big in 1982 as they are now, but they did exist. By 1982 we were already pretty deep into Friday the 13thHalloween, and the Rocky franchises. Heck, the Greaseaverse was nearly launched in 1982, only slowed by a universal lack of interest.

But the question remains, were these franchise entries any good? Well, good news because we are on the case to find out. Or to at least talk about it. I don't know if you can call three dudes opining about something for thirty minutes "finding out."

Join us, please, as we explore what movies continued or started their proud legacies in 1982.

Make sure to also:

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.

You can help by donating to local abortion funds. To find out where to donate for each state, visit
