Carth: Weren't most of those movies from the mid 90s?
mcnguyen: Carth: Weren't most of those movies from the mid 90s?Yes, almost all of them. There were plenty of bad movies from the 80s, but tardmitter can't keep his decades straight.
MisatoNERV: fark you! The Last Starfighter still owns.
Richard_The_Clown: mcnguyen: Carth: Weren't most of those movies from the mid 90s?Yes, almost all of them. There were plenty of bad movies from the 80s, but tardmitter can't keep his decades straight.The only movie on that list that came from the eighties was Newsies.
odinsposse: I think subby meant to say born in the 80's, meaning you watched kid movies in the late 80's/early 90's. And I still love Hook and hate Buzzfeed.
velvet_fog: I don't understand the love for Hook. That movie suuuuucccckkkkeeeeddddd. I mean, it had the lowest RT score on that list. One of the all-time great missed opportunities - great cast and visuals undermined by a shiat story and screenplay. I think it's Schlockberg's worst - far worse than 1941 and The Terminal.
Carth: Also, Kevin Smith movies are a lot like libertarianism. It is nothing to be ashamed of to be into as a kid/teen but you should outgrown when you're an adult.
Carth: Waldo Pepper:addWargamesAnother great movie. I also forgot about Flight of the Navigator which I must have watched a dozen times. And Real Genius, Weird Science.
Waldo Pepper: The Goonies
Waldo Pepper: Rapmaster2000: I think the headline is saying if you were a kid in the 80s then these movies sucked, because you were old enough to realize that they sucked. It's clumsy, but it works.Tommy Boy holds up fine though. The Sandler movies were terrible but slightly watchable when they were new. Never saw the rest.I resist Sandler movies until I watched Waterboy and I have to admit that a few of his are fun. Waterboy, Mr Deeds and the Wedding Singer are all enjoyable stupid movies. The earlier ones are stupid but in a way a good stupid. But lately since Click i'm not sure what he is doing. Click should have been a decent "Mr Deedish movie but it failed, Jack and Jill and Grownups are a mess well hang on I shouldn't say that about Jack and Jill as it would be unfair seeing as I turned it off after the first 5 minutes.
Tom_Slick: Waldo Pepper: The GooniesShut up and do the truffle shuffle.
Rocket To Russia: I recently ran across a cheap, used DVD of Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, remembering that it was hilarious!It's not.Now I'm afraid to watch The Man With Two Brains again.
Ishkur: The problem with Hook is that they "Poochey the Dog"-ed the Lost Boys, making them skateboarding, jive-talking, basketball slam dunking punk-haired cool doodz TO THE EXTREME to relate more to 90s kids. It was a stupid marketing decision to upgrade the play habits of 19th century English children to 20th century American values, and it was an overreach that hurt the movie. The movie's premise was not bad (and the performances of all the adult actors were fine), but the execution of everything missed the mark completely.
