I know full well that the 70s and 90s were the most important decades in the development of the modern film industry. The 70s were the era of the auteur, and the 90s were when the indies made their mark.
And yet ... I miss the 80s, when things were so uncomplicated: Cusack, Broderick, Cruise, Curtis Armstrong and youthploitation films; Body Heat and the erotic thrillers; The Right Stuff; A Christmas Story; Raiders; Ghostbusters; Blade Runner; Fast Times; Die Hard; The Princess Bride; Top Gun; Beverly Hills Cop; Airplane!; The Blues Brothers. I guess I'm a simple man. They are all movies I actually enjoyed and would watch again right now if they came up on cable.
