Blade Runner / Top 5 Films of 1982

Attack ships on fire, glittering c-beams, an alien in a bike's basket passing over a full moon. We've seen some things, too, Roy Batty. The Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips joins Adam and Josh for a Sacred Cow review of Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi noir (we chose BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT," if you're curious), plus the Top 5 films of 1982. And listeners weigh in on our '82 Death Match - Blade Runner vs E.T. - and one of those two films ascends to the Filmspotting Pantheon. Plus Michael recalls seeing "An Officer and a Gentleman" with his college girlfriend (and her grandparents) and Pizza Ranch jokes in the "Hot Mics" segment.
