    Mark, Ross & Allen further explore the films of 1982 in a new segment they call “The Good, The Bad & The Ugly” which causes some debate about what was really a bad film in 1982. (It seems Allen liked a lot of “ugly” movies!)   New Segment: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly The Good: Movies that didn’t  make our Top 5 lists,  but not necessarily #6 - #10 either. These are good films that deserve some attention for one reason or another. The Bad: These could be films that fell short of their potential, or something else altogether – a bad soundtrack, a poor performance, a terrible trend… or perhaps just a guilty pleasure we acknowledge is not a good movie. The Ugly: The worst of the worst! U-G-L-Y, it ain’t got no alibi!   discussed in this episode: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in 1982 Our Top 5 films of 1982   download this episode
