This month, we’re going “Back In Time” this month despite the new year. A reflective look, if you will, to a time where cinema was fluent with films that were questionable to the “normal” mind’s eye. There were thrills, chills, and comedic stills ingrained within our brains from then to now.

Comic books, vintage toys from your childhood, many things will come back to remind you that THEY ARE NOT BAD, JUST MISUNDERSTOOD. 

What are your favorite memories from those times? Was it the music? The films? The retro clothes? The hair? What do you consider the most misunderstood film from the 80’s that you can’t get enough of anytime you view it? Comment and Share your favorite memories!

  1. Ah, the 1980’s…Culture Club, Romantic Music Videos of Spandeau Ballet or ABC….weird name Bands like “Cock Robin” or “Men Without Hats”…Movies like INVADERS FROM MARS Remake with Karen Black. Or STRANGE INVADERS. Freddy Kreuger was the Nightmare on my street. Star Trek was ressurected and so was Khan! There was WEIRD SCIENCE and GHOST BUSTERS! Most of all, there was a bit of innocence and fun still left in our lives. I call the 80’s a RENAISSANCE OF MUSIC AND POP CULTURE. And the coolest thing to say was “Da Doo Doo Doo/Da Da Da Da/That’s all I want to say to you!”-The Police.
