Being a stickler on the release date. Most associate it with 1981 (as do I) because that was the U.S. release but it was completed and released (in Europe) in 1980.

The Atlantic Ocean was something else back then

I love that line! Is there a better line in movie history to illustrate the subjective bias of nostalgia? I don't think so. The Atlantic ocean! Might as well say, "The moon? Boy, you missed it kid. The moon was really something back in the day."

One of the great pictures. I watch it regularly and it is always fresh and new.
