JASON REITMAN'S GHOSTBUSTERS Pre-Release Thread

I'd argue that. cinematically, the '80s ended with Jurassic Park.
Just this guy, you know?

I'd say Aladdin in 1992 kicked off the '90s in the world of animation, but otherwise that's pretty valid. Point to T2 as the last hurrah for The '80s (with one eye looking forward,) and JP taking over after a brief interregnum.

I always saw T2 was the real start of the 1990s at the movies. It doesn't look like an '80s film in any meaningful way.
If we can dream it, then we can do it.

T2 still had a very 80s LA feel. The GNR association fits like a leather glove. I always think of Reservoir Dogs as the first 90s film.

I always think of TANGO & CASH as the last film of the 80's and INTERNAL AFFAIRS, LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III and SKI PATROL as the first films of the 90's.

The '80s ended?

News to me.

I'm never watching the 2016 version again - it's criminal how that film just wastes a great cast with thoroughly mediocre and exhausted tropes and prat falls.

Sometimes, dead is better.


Hey, MM just wrote the perfect tagline for the new Ghostbusters movie!
If you're happy, you're not paying attention.

I always think of The Last of the Finest as the first movie of the 90s since it was the first film we were all able to get together to watch in March of that year...and it was a damn good one. Only Fahey and Pantoliano left, dammit.

*Batteries Not Included is fuckin' great.

The '80s more ended in like '88. Earlier '90s fashion, Nirvana, NWA, that Eurodance pop music that was big into the mid-'90s; those '90s patterns that look like the front of a trapper keeper, the intro to Saved by the Bell, or a Sonic the Hedgehog stage...that stuff all started at the tail end of the '80s.

This is good. If you had ended and were still posting here that would cause for alarm.

Perhaps I will end soon and be born anew to still post. We shall see.

What Bucho said. It's basically the turning point from '80s to '90s action cinema, and as such it has strong ties to both.

Commo has great taste in opinions on when 80s cinema ended and 90s cinema began. I've always said that.
