I miss the 80’s

Anyone else out there miss the 80’s, specifically TV and Movies from the 80’s. I just grabbed an old DVD off the shelf a remastered version of Iron Eagle a really far fetched flying movie from the 80’s. Fun music, hero tale and a really good watch.

While watching I can’t help but to reminisce about the late 80’s when movies where corny and unbelievable nothing was based on reality. We had shows like the A-Team, Airwolf, Blue Thunder, Magnum PI, the list is long. Movies like Ferris Bueller’s Day off, Iron Eagle, Lawnmower Man, Ski School, Ski Patrol, Adventures in Babysitting, The Labyrinth, The Last Starfighter and a HUGE assortment of  other great 80’s flicks not to mention all the horrors series like Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elf Street, the list is endless.
Modern movies are technologically advanced and getting better with some of the newer stories based off 80’s television/film. The  Transformers was a master piece using the greatest cartoon of the 80’s Era. Modern TV needs to take a page of the movie industry book and look to the 80’s for stories to immerse our selves into instead of living vicariously through the morons in so called reality TV programs.

Well thats my rant on Reality TV again. Feel free to give input there is nothing like a good old fashioned online debate.
