Episode 93 - 1981 Was A Year In Film

Of all the years in film, 1981 was one. It's our look back at a curiously influential year in cinema that rarely gets the acknowledgement we feel it deserves.

James Bond had disco music, Arthur was a bit tipsy, and Bill Murray got his stripes. Time Bandits was (and always will be) Time Bandits. And that's just in the Top Ten! 1981 was also an astonishingly good year for many of the classic genre films you know and love.
