Andie's (Molly Ringwald) a good student who develops a crush on Blane (Andrew McCarthy), the sensitive, well-born preppie. But Blane runs with a fast crowd of haughty rich kids, the kind of clique Andie …

Movies don't get much better than this.  This is what independent film making is all about.  Talk about a quotable movie!  "There is one in every car, you'll see."  Features a special …

Cheers early cast photo
Cheers.  What needs to be said?  It's one of the greatest shows ever made.       Part "work-com" and growing more into a traditional "sitcom" …

The Lost Boys
**1.2 out of ****      Aside from the fact that it's all style and no substance, "The Lost Boys" still services well as a decent vampire flick. It's better than most …

Breakfast Club
This movie was a lot better than I thought it would be. I know it was made by John Hughes, mastermind behind Pretty in Pink and Ferris Bueller's day off, but this seemed just like a normal cliched …

Beverly Hills Cop II
Remember how awesome the first Beverly HIlls Cop movie was?  Young tough cop from dirty Detroit comes to posh Beverly Hills and teaches the cops and stiffs some common sense and uses his street smarts …
reviewed Tiffany. May 12, 2011
As most children of the '80s did, I used to dance around my bedroom singing Michael Jackson and Debbie Gibson songs into my hairbrush. At the top of my "setlist" was a little song called …
reviewed TRON (1982 movie). June 20, 2011
posted in Movie Hype
At first I thought the distance between ‘Tron' and ‘Tron Legacy' may have been in style and substance. After all ‘Tron' at its inception was an organic movie conception from the popular arcade games filling …

* out of ****     "Prom Night" is derivative, boring, bland, ridiculous, stupid, and the worst "classic" slasher/horror film I've seen since "My Bloody Valentine". The film offers …

A Nightmare on Elm Street
**** out of ****     Back in the day, when people like Wes Craven and John Carpenter could still make pretty good films, good ol' Wes made stuff like "The Last House on the Left" and …

*** out of ****    There are a handful of films that I admire and enjoy for their unique, groundbreaking visual style alone and Steven Lisberger's "Tron" is just one of them. Critically, …
reviewed Revenge of the Nerds. April 16, 2008
Movie poster
This is probably the greatest 80s comedy movie ever (if not all time).  Its got the classic story about the jocks (cool kids) picking on the nerds. But what makes this so funny is that its all going …

Thriller Video
When I first saw Thriller in 1983, I was 5 and my little brother was 3. We sat maybe a foot away from the TV screen on the edge of the coffee table and were mesmerized. Well, maybe a better way to put …

Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon
I am a fan of the post-apocalypse-survival-band type novels, and this is one of the best written ones out there. McCammons characters are fully fleshed out and complete, his vision of the desolated terrain …
reviewed Galaga. December 16, 2008
Galaga, released in 1981, is one of the more repetitive games from the 80s. Although most early games shared the multiple levels of the same thing gene such as pac-man and dig-dug Galaga is one of those …

reviewed Teen Wolf. February 27, 2009
Teen Wolf
Maybe one of the greatest/cheesiest movies to be made in the 80s.  Michael J. Fox does play a convincing werewolf, but in my opinion the role of Rupert 'Stiles' Stilinski played by Jerry Levine steals …

Can't Buy Me Love
Can't Buy Me Love a.k.a. Boy Rents Girl is a movie that I would not have in my personal collection but whenever it's on T.V. I'll never miss it. I don't know why I like some of these type of movies. Maybe …
