That was part of a conversation held at my house this past Sunday, while Michi and I were enjoying the
Super Bowl(tm) “Big Game” with friends. I brought up the fact that Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
Yep. Just let that sink in for a moment.
So, I got to thinking: What other movies celebrate milestone birthdays in 2011? As it happens, is rather long. I’ve compiled a subsection of said list, featuring movies I like for one reason or another. Some of these, as you might imagine, are prime candidates for a Wayback Review, as was done with Commando last year when it celebrated its 25th birthday. I imagine that other landmark films will receive some kind of retrospective treatment, as I did with a handful of titles which celebrated their own milestones during 2010 (Jaws, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and Back to the Future, to name a few).
Anyway, check out this list, which as I said is not complete by any measure, but is rather a subset of titles I like, or at least that I feel deserve to have some serious ReviewSnark thown their way. Feel free to chime in with your own thoughts and candidates. Entries marked with an asterisk (*) are ones I’m marking as potential Wayback Review targets.
