Now And Then, 80's style.
The 80's live on, now more than ever at a theater near you... Inception be be getting mucho praise for being groundbreaking and original, but Dreamscape from 1984 had already covered this ground... And marketing it as the next Indiana Jones installment! Apparently Adrien Brody is Arnold Schwarzenneger. Disney's Fantasia was remastered and reissued in 1982, and 28 years later makes a return, this time with Nicholas Cage as the sorcerer with crazy eyes and stringy hair. Love at first bite. Vampires will never go out of style, though the Twilight films are trying their hardest to bury the genre quick. Friends gather together for a funeral and bond over a weekend. Now with more funny. Secret agents always seem to have a knack for hooking up with ordinary women and going on zany misadventures, don't they? Wax this. Both films prominently feature a zany plot about getting a zany, wild, drugged out rock star to his concert in time. A young man is torn up over the sudden death of his brother during a boating accident. I still say they should have cast Mr. T in the movie remake as he still looks and behaves exactly the same way he did in 1984.
