This week, we interviewed Drew McWeeny, who writes The Last ’80s Newsletter (You’ll Ever Need), a publication that revisits every movie released in the U.S. in the 1980s.
I was born in 1981, I’m in!
I think the history of cinema and art is an experience for the next generations of films that are being made and as upgraded industry progresses, hearing the memorable music of previous years can be more interesting than seeing repetitive films....
So glad to hear 'Cutter's Way' mentioned! I'd never even heard of it when I saw it on an acquaintance's recommendation about ten years ago, and it became one of my favorites.
I also loved the last line of 'Birdy'!
I guess I'm about four years older than Drew, so that was my youth too, for better or worse. I couldn't stand all the schlock of the era, but I agree that, looking back, there was often more than met the eye.
Thanks for the shoutout, Drew! Happy we all have a place to run wild with our film obsessions.
It's true that when we think of '80s films, a handful of classics often come to mind. But there's so much more to explore from that decade! The '80s was a fascinating time in cinema, where the transition from '70s auteurs to the rise of blockbusters was unfolding.

Being a 1982 baby, I loved the 1980s growing up, and the films you mentioned—Goonies, Back to the Future, Terminator, Predator, and Beverly Hills Cop—remain some of my all-time favorites. I challenge anyone to disagree with me that the 1980s were the best decade for movies! You can visit if you want to see a selection of classic movies with only one intelligent click. Visit
Lover of the 80's as an '82 baby and the main films you've mentioned Goonies, Back to the Future, Terminator, Predator, Beverly Hills Cop are still favourites of mine to this day! I dare anyone to try and say that the 80's wasn't the best era for movies!
Wow, I can't believe it takes that much time to write each of these films.
