The 80's
« on: July 09, 2004, 04:20:20 AM »

What do you think. A waste of a decade or did something good actually come out of it? The music scene wasn't much and the clothes were horrible! Anyone ever wear one of those lame Don Johnson blazers or two tone pants! The slasher flicks and teenaged angst movies were cool though. Oh, and U2 of course.

There were lots of up and coming groups that were a bit below the radar........cinema was in the doldrums though throughout the whole decade.......and worst of all..

Reagan/Bush.

There were great *songs*, but few artists put out consistently good product.  So it was pick a hit here, grab a hit there, but it wasn't automatic for the superstars.

I'm guessing it had something to do with the hair?

So, it's safe to say that both the real film industry AND the porno one were turning out garbage. :)

Yes, it would be safe to say that.  It would not be safe however, to watch 80's porn with a light stomach.

The Cure put out some fine records in the 80's and really early 90's. And Metallica's first three albums are the pinnacle of heavy metal.

I enjoyed the half that I lived through.....whenever something new would come out, it'd always seem really exciting....so sick of everything nowadays that's all the same....all of our commercials with the white backgrounds.....about cell phones and other dull nonsense...

Well, the 80's really weren't that bad! Some good music came out! AC/DC, The Cure, Chili Peppers, REM, U2, The Clash, Springsteen, Guns n Roses, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, Lenny Kravitz, Ozzy, Prince, Van Halen.

I think the movies coming out now are not much better than those that came out in the 80's! Let's see I remember some good ones. 
The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost Arc, Superman 2, Stripes, E.T, Tootsie,  Ghost Busters, Beverly Hills Cop, The Color Purple, Top Gun, Fatal Attraction, Good Morning Vietnam, Rain Man, The Untouchables, and the best one Batman! I mean I know none of them is a Godfather or anything but I don't think they suck.  It's all relative I guess. I can't say anything good about the clothes or hair though!!!!
