3 First Blood

After this movie everyone who's been a little bit more warrior was named Rambo - MatrixGuy

Didn't live back then but 1982 was a good year for movies. First blood is just amazing. Flawless really. Stallones best performance by far.

4 Blade Runner

A brilliant Sci-FI with Roy Batty: Rutger Hauer's superb end monolog: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die´┐Ż" - MatrixGuy
