docweasel movie minireviews: the ’80s
Ah the ’80s. The ’80s are unique in that they have a very distinct signature through the music, which was much more processed with the advancement of synthesizers and drum machines, the fashions were loud and colorful, as were the graphics and fonts.
The movies were no different, but it does seem there were a lot of shit movies from that decade. The music by and large (except for the NWOBHM, which was amazing) shitty. You can almost always identify an ’80s movie just by the credits.
Here we are taking just a sampling I happened to download this week, centering on a 1980s Comedy and Crime/Thriller with some ’80s movie stars and ’70s holdovers.
Not necessarily great movies.
