was the comedy film.
The teen flick, oui.
though the early 90's produced quite a few good teen flicks too
the genre spans all decades but the 80's produced most of the gems :)
I <3 teen flicks
say selfishness and comedy movies. But I think the first one is a given
than in the 80s.
I suppose it's a hard thing to measure...
I also feel that people find it much harder to deal with 'no' than they did in the 80s. This is the 'me' generation we're living in right now.
was in the 80's
computer games though, it rules.
I loved marching my men to their death!
is so 1990s
try jet set willy, space invaders, asteroids, and pac man.
Teen Films, for sho'
I like my comedy thirties and forties stylee. A bit of Bob Hope, Will Hay etc
Eighties stuff blows, especially the shit clothes. Some eighties music is good, but only by comparison to now/nineties stuff, and definitely not next to sixties stuff.
Modern eighties retro is the worst thing evah
a T0tttallyu ironic way, yeah.
nah, it really didn't.
Eighties clothes are for people who think genuinity is a disease. Wearing stupid and unflattering fashionista shit just makes you look like a bellend
I can appreciate that you like it, but being as its been a standard hoxtonite uniform to wear odd coloured and ill matching eighties clothes for a good few years now, I hardly think its imaginative!
is obviously mentally incapable and should be operated on asap.
Action films had their day in the 80s. You could get away with being stupid and all-round dreadful. Now, they're just fucking disgraceful.
But yeah. The 80's should be forgotten about. THE worst decade of the 20th century. Yes, even worse than those rubbishy 20's and 30's ones.
the 30's had an excuse to be a bit 'rubbishy'.
Back to the Future.
I rest my case
Aren't we talking about films which always include lines like:
-'did you get laid?'
-'totally awesome babes'
I rest my case.
Back to the Future IS a teen film, innit?
Those films you are on about sound bobbins
You've never seen them?
Wow. They were vital parts of my childhood. Granted, if I saw them for the first time now, I doubt they'd have the same thrill they used to (due to bad special effects), but they really are well good films. The goodie doesn't always live, and the baddies are really bad. They kill everyone, and it SHOWS it.
Nowadays, action films usually end with Nicholas Cage being reunited with his bitch, and some Aerosmith song in the background.
Nah, I was an odd child. Too busy watching Bob Hope
Ditto action movies. Don't really see the appeal
of evil baddies getting their just deserts (I hope I got that right).
Take Robocop for example. They blow him up with shotguns, and SHOOT HIS HAND OFF.
Then he goes back to kill them all when he's a robot, and he shoots a guy with a rifle, THROUGH his scope, and his eye explodes. Or maybe that's the second one.
Still, it gives you a 'YESSSSSSSSSSS' buzz. Or it did. I've not seen it for at least five years.
So bad it's better than everything else.
80's = comedy motherlode?
Umm, Spinal Tap, Withnail & I, Ghostbusters, Back To The Future et al. You know the names and the faces.....I defy anyone to do a countback with any other decade head to head and come out on top.
