It looked like it last time it was on while I was channel surfing.

Back then though, it was okay to make fun movies that didn't need a frakkin' Mensa level plot.

Nowadays, everyone's so pretentious, self-aggrandizing, and stuck on themselves that they think every single movie has to have stratospheric levels of intelligence just to pass as a decent movie.

Folks have seriously forgotten how to simply have fun.

Well, that's true - but the definition of 'simply having fun' certainly ain't the same for everyone and so why should it ultimately matter that some find a dumb Arnie film not worth watching?

It's not so much that, my friend, as it is that the 80's is ultimately associated with "cheese". The 80's had some of my favorite movies, and music, despite the general "I have to be cool by saying this" populace saying "that was so cheesy."

We have such films in the current times, but it'll take about a decade for them to acquire the essence of Linburger.

This is true about the 80s - but there are many varieties of cheese!!!

Then again, the same can be said for any decade.

Soon, the past decade will find its place in the annals of cheesedom.

(Ok....don't even contemplate the juxtaposition of those last three words....the outcome....GAH!, there I go again...will be wrong,....just WRONG!)

i think fun in the 80's was more of a collective phenomenon than today.

More people hung out together to watch arnie or stallone

Based on all I've heard about it (since I was born 87), it was a very different time. The internet can certainly be blamed for keeping people indoors and not getting out and doing the things they used to do. I am a prime example of such a thing honestly...although not entirely so.
