It's certainly no less true for me, I have lots of childhood nostalgia for the '90s, and the '80s were also imprinted on me at an early age.
Hell ya! Some damn good movies from those 20 years or so.

I wish I could find cheap monthly/3month PSN codes the way I do XBOX. I get bored of online gaming quickly on my PS4 so I hate buying a year as I may play a few weeks and not touch it for 6 months.

For it being the decade I grew up in that way, I don't have that much of an attachment to 90s films. I've got less 90s films in my combined collection than any other decade, probably.

The thing is, my love of the film of the 90s didn't come about from my childhood all that much really. I still love some films from my childhood but it is really watched outside of my childhood that made me love the 90s for films.



Also of course Strange Days but that film is impossible to get beyond a German Blu-Ray release that isn't Region-Free.

My favorite decade (film-wise) is, as I already mentioned, the '70s. There's no doubt in my mind those were the best years evar for American cinema in particular. New Hollywood for da win. So many great new filmmakers rose to prominence and were at the top of their game in those years. So many great films were made not just in America but all over the world. And it gave us Stalker, which could be enough to make it my favorite decade on its own.

'80s are a close second.

Now if you want to apply what I grow up with, 90s until now is my favorite time for film... that is uncontrollable bias from me though.

Pretty much music of the 60's-80's is my favorite, my favorite movies are in that time period. Other than action movies from Stallone/Arnold/Willis and later films like LOTR/MCU/DCU type stuff, I can't say there's many movies in my all time favorites not from that 30 year span. Gladiator, Forrest Gump, Titanic, As Good As It Gets, Interview With The Vampire...that's in there.

I like stuff from going back to old silent films, but my favs are mostly old stuff. Same for music. I can enjoy new stuff, but my favorites are all around my youth or much older.

I actually don't really know. It is this one:

I think it is just the standard edition. I bought it without looking because that sucker for either version is $40+ on Amazon and it is $20 (including shipping) on there.

I was kinda disappointed when I finally saw Brice of Re-Animator. It's alright but it's nowhere near as good as the original.

To add to the conversation, I think J Law is a stunning looking woman. Acting wise, I think she has been pulled into the franchises and sometimes it's hard to judge if she has improved overall but with stuff like Winter's Bone she proved she can act.

As for her personal life, I wouldn't want to second guess what she may or may not be, but it's unavoidable in this day and age when there is a dangerous obsession with everything famous.

As for the Kardasians, no talent apart from a business understanding of the industry and (IMO) good agents who get the very best out of very little talent.

I would rather watch paint dry then follow them, but that's just me.

70s and 80's. I got to see many 70's classics on VHS and I happen to love horror films like The Exorcist, Carrie, Dawn Of The Dead, Jaws, Alien and the king of them all, Halloween.
The 80's obviously gave us the two Terminator films, Aliens, BladeRunner, The Shining and so many others. As a fan of Sci-Fi also, it was a defining era.
