Best Dated Movies
« on: January 09, 2018, 10:57:33 PM »
On MovieChat, I saw people talking about The Crow and Lost Boys as very 90's and 80's movies respectfully.  These comments were not meant as a knock against these movies.  Lost Boys is very 80's in a good way and The Crow is very 90's in a good way in that both movies embody everything cool about both decades.  They got me thinking about movies that are dated but in the best way possible.

For instance, while I wasn't alive in the 70's, I feel Enter The Dragon gloriously embodies that decade.

CLERKS and MALLRATS were -the- 90s movie for comic nerds.

HIGH FIDELITY came out in 2000, and was the last great 90s feel type of movie; a generation was coming into its prime, and hadnt yet hit the wall on maturity.

Roadhouse feels 1980s.

Easy Rider is ridiculously 60s

Oh good one. So is Ghostbusters, IMO.

The Matrix has has a distinct 90's flavor as well.
