Holy crap the 80’s. This is why being a 70’s kid is awesome. I think I am a collector because of the 80’s movies scene. I saw Star Wars in 77 when I was 5 and loved the fx and light show and dug on how cool Solo was. It was the 80’s when I geeked the frak out. Raiders of the Lost Ark was the first time I can remember walking out of a cinema literally with my jaw on the floor thinking it does not get any better than that, but it did. Ghostbusters, perhaps still one of the most fun blockbusters ever. ET – the first movie where I cried and understood why. Back To The Future, Beetlejuice, Romancing The Stone, The Princess Bride (a perfect movie), Goonies, The Empire Strikes Back, Stand By Me.
I am sure I am missing a tonne so why not add yours here!
A blog toast to the 8o’s when the geek was spoilt! (I know its good now but it’s always better in the past!).
