The 80's

Posted on Sun, Jun 6, 2010 at 11:11 AM

If there was a decade to never resurrect, it's the 1980's. It's not that I hold it in any poor esteem, after all, it's the decade that I grew up in, and it had the best cartoons!

But, in about a week, Hollywood is releasing 2 films that scream "the 80's". The A-Team and The Karate Kid. Last year, they ruined Astro Boy, G.I. Joe (not really a 80's thing per se, but they did have an iconic cartoon) AND the Transformers. The worst part of it all is that these movies made money!

I guess there's truth in "nostalgia sells", it's only made worse because they don't even have to be creative. —I'm Tired Of Rehash
