Poltergeist (1982)

Poltergeist Quote: “Hello? What do you look like? Talk louder, I can’t hear you! Hey, hello! Hello, I can’t hear you! Five. Yes. Yes. I don’t know. I don’t know.” – Carol Anne

Steven Spielberg made it, and it’s widely considered a horror classic. So why is “Poltergeist” just ho-hum? Is it the bi-polar mood of the film? The shoddy acting? The complete misunderstanding of how actual people react to horrifying events? Or are we just haunted by the memories of days when something this hokey seemed scary?

Porky’s (1981)

Porky’s Quote: “This boy is deformed!” – Cherry Forever

Surprise: We kinda liked Porky’s. Also surprise: It’s wasn’t because of boobs (hardly any, actually) or jokes (so many bad ones). The 1981 Canadian-American teen sex comedy actually had some depth to it, dealing with child abuse, misogyny, racism, and possibly the fallout of war. Seriously!

The Matrix (1999)

The Matrix Quote: “Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.” – Agent Smith

The Matrix changed the world: new camera styles, new visions of violence, new perceptions of reality, and new uses of vinyl clothing. Laurence Fishburne was unforgettable as the enigmatic Morpheus. Carrie-Anne Moss was sizzling as the sleek and deadly Trinity. And Keanu Reeves was the astoundingly empty vessel we needed Neo to be. But the real star, 18 years after The Matrix debuted, is Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith. Let’s review what audiences loved, what still holds up, and what ultimately made this masterpiece just short of perfect.
