80’s Movies That Didn’t Stand The Test Of Time


4. Breakin’ and Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo

We all remember the dancing in these films because we all tried to do this new, break dance! However, these movies had very weak plots. By the time the second one came around, they were dancing to save the community center.

5. The Last Starfighter.

This movie has some of the first special effects ever! For that reason, it’s often pretty lame when we look back on it, making us simply laugh at our simplicity.

6. Weekend at Bernie’s

This was all about making a guy look alive when he was really dead. They came up with all sorts of ways to make him move like tying strings on his hands and pulling it so that he appeared to be waving from far away. It’s pretty unbelievable and it didn’t play very well back then either.

  1. Why don’t you just come straight out and confess, that you personally just don’t like the movies from the 80’s. Even if you don’t like them, I was still shocked that you said Legend lacked visual stimuli. Are you serious? The Last Starfighter had a cool story about a teenager who wants to be something more, to go somewhere in life, and to leave the trailer park behind. He is recruited by an alien, after he sets a world record on an arcade game, to fight in a space war. That was appealing to many kids then because we loved the arcades. You can hardly find arcades anymore, especially no random arcade games at convenient stores, grocery stores, and not many at movie theaters. No wonder kids and teens these days wouldn’t relate to it. I feel sorry for the kids of today because we had the cool arcade machines everywhere when growing up. We had more adventurous movies to, loaded with fun. Hey, what is wrong with Weekend At Bernies? That movie wa hilarious. One of the funniest movies of its time. Yes, some of these movies may be cheesy to people today but at least they had more heart, adventure, originality, and imagination.

    Look at a lot of the crap coming out at the movies today. The big screen is infested with too many remakes, movies with nothing but explosion after explosion, movies that lack originality, and every other movie seems to be a comic book movie nowadays. There have been remakes over the past decades but in the past 10-15 years the cinema has become saturated with them more than ever. That is a fact. These remakes have even seeped their way onto the televison with many old tv shows being remade, and not to mention all of the ignorant reality tv shows that are on. So, if all these movies, and shows were so horrible, then why the need for the remakes? In conclusion, I’m glad I grew up in the 80’s. Have a nice day.

  2. These are all classics. I don’t know how Say Anything is figured into this. The boom box over the head has been referenced in numerous shows throughout the years.
