For me the 80’s symbolize a strange in between period in American culture that is overlooked. Out of a all the questionable products from the 80’s like big hair bands and crack, I believe that the golden age of film production started in this era. Classics like: Back To The Future, Gremlins, Ghostbusters, ET, Die hard, ETC. There are too many blockbuster films that were produced in the 80’s for me to even mention in this blog post. Most of these films went on to be franchises in the future which include some big hitters like Indiana Jones and the Star Wars films. Without these cinema masterpieces I feel a big portion of my childhood would have been dull.
