    80s movies had the best posters imo. All unique and perfect to hang on your wall, even bad movies! Frankly bad movies back then are better than now. (e.g Hard Ticket To Hawaii)

    Ripley [2180244]

    What I like about 80s movies (other than how many of them had political messages I like) is the pacing. A lot of movies now feel very compressed, like they're afraid the audience will get bored if they actually let the scenes breathe a little. 80s movies generally aren't slow-paced; they're efficient, just not hyper-fixated on getting from point to point as quickly as possible.
    I get what you mean. For example i'm happy to see the success of Dune (2021) since it managed to pique the interest of the masses despite its lengthy runtime, rather slow pace and political themes. Dune (1984) though... it's a mess, but a fun one regardless.

    I want to watch action movies about how corporations are dangerous and feminism is good

    I think you have been watching chick flicks...

    Last time I checked, Commando has little to say on female politics...

    Infact, I would suggest, you have seen f**k all and are after cheap karma...

    I will never lie to you. What I say is how I feel...

    Alien and Aliens are feminist as hell, but if you want to take some of this karma off my hands, be my guest. My downvote magnets aren't working lately.

    Commando has feminism / strong females 

    Spoilers :

    The Great Arnold could not have made it to the bad moustached people's base without the woman flying him there.

    The same woman who after thinking he was a nutter and got security on him then saved him by pushing the cop security and stopping the shot.

    The same woman who rescued The Great Arnold from police with the use of rockets.

    The Great Arnold's daughter refused to be a victim and sought escape and stood up for herself telling bad man ' it won't be half as nice as watching him kill you '.

    Commando had little to say about any politics other than be sure to know your bin men, don't be special forces with a nutter in your unit and always carry blankets in case your friend is dead tired.

    I don't play I just read and post on the forums when I'm meant to be studying or when England beat Germany 2 : 1. Capitalism Vs Communism Vote is on!

    Blues Brothers - 1980
    Ghostbusters -1984
    Platoon - 1986
    Full Metal Jacket - 1987
    Lethal Weapon - 1987 (NOT a Christmas film)
    The Lost Boys - 1987
    The Goonies - 1985
    The Shining - 1980
    Nightmare on Elm Street
    Blade Runner - (cited as being the first film in which Harrison Ford had to actually act)
    Dirty Dancing
    Friday 13th (inspired a franchise that still runs)



    to name a few more
    Blade Runner is a great film. I think its Harrison Fords best film. I actually enjoyed the follow up as well though it was pretty obvious he was being wheel chaired out to be in  it.

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    I change my tampons in between throwing saw blades into people's heads. There's a reason "tough titties" is a saying but "tough testicles" isn't.

    They Live is an brilliant film. I'm kind of glad you don't get it...

    If you can't get behind "I came here to kick arse and chew gum, and I'm all out of gum" then you do not deserve it...

    What makes you think I don't get it? I put a question mark after "makes no sense," not a period.

    Makes no sense tends to mean you don't get it...

    So does everyone. It's a communist movie, and it's pretty straightforward about it.

    The money literally says "this is your god" lol it's not exactly subtle. I didn't watch Rocky 3. Rocky 4 is definitely a jingoist anti-communist movie, though.
