    Five 80's Nostalgia Films Guaranteed To Give You The Warm Fuzzies

    Five 80's Nostalgia Films Guaranteed To Give You The Warm Fuzzies

    Emily and Sarah give their run down of the 80's films that never fail to give them the warm fuzzies.

    he 80's as an era was characterised by the introduction of 'high-concept', big budget Hollywood blockbusters. As big business took control of the studios, film budgets skyrocketed due to new technologies, developments in special effects and inflated salaries of name-recognition stars. After the innovations of the 70s, films in the 80's were less experimental and original, but more formulaic and entertainment was king. By the end of the 80's the average U.S. movie budget was $18 Million, a staggering increase from the $5 million figure at the start of the decade.

    Emily and Sarah review recent release Tickled. When New Zealand Journalist David Farrier starts researching an innocent story into the intriguing and silly world of competitive endurance tickling, he comes up against some fierce resistance and the story quickly becomes something quite sinister in this gripping and chilling documentary.
