To people of a certain age, the 1980s was a landmark decade in film. Various blockbusters and franchises were born to turn into sequels, reboots, and reimagings that are enjoyed and marketed worldwide to this very day. Not a day goes by that you can see a Ghostbusters t-shirt at Target, a Michael Keaton Batman collectible at Target, or a former 1980s child star working at Target.
So many films from the 1980s are celebrated by nearly-40-year-old millennials, along with hand-me-down nostalgia to Gen Z, too. Many of these films have been played over and over on VCRs, DVD players, Blu-Ray players, and streaming services that they’ve been quoted to death. However, there may still be some fun things you missed during your first, second, or 91st time watching them.
