Scott Weinberg and Drew McWeeny are ready to review every major film of the '80s, one month at a time, helping erase the nostalgia that so often clouds any real conversation about the decade's movies.

    April 1985

    April 1985

    It’s a weird month, with a lot of little films you’ve never heard of up front. Teen-sex comedies and weird War Games ripoffs and swords and sandals and unfunny celebrity siblings abound. But we’ve also got a Louis Malle film, some genuinely sweet and fun teen comedies, a couple of crazy riffs on fairy tales, and adaptations of both Elmore Leonard and Stephen King. That’s a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get to it with April of 1985.

    March 1985

    March 1985

    March has become one of the coolest months of each season here on ‘80s All Over, and this one’s no exception. Want some crummy TV children’s animation on the bigscreen? We’ve got you covered. Want some terrible sequels to films that shouldn’t have sequels? Yep. Plenty of that. Weird tone-deaf kids films, exploitation films that make us squirm for the wrong reasons, misbegotten star vehicles? Check, check, and check. But we’ve also got a stone-cold teen classic, Eric Stoltz’s best work of the decade, one of the weirdest side trips in John Landis’s career, Madonna’s big screen debut, and Divine on horseback. What more could you ask from March of 1985?

    February 1985

    February 1985

    An Oscar-winning actor directs a bunch of dancers with a dream, Richard Harris hits the road with someone else's kid, and it's time for classy Porky's! We meet Kiefer Sutherland for the first time, Matthew Modine tries to make weight, and Kurt Russell does the serial-killer two-step. All that plus Harrison Ford's best performance, a Jeff Goldblum cult oddity, and the greatest high school movie ever made? Don't you forget about February of 1985.

    January 1985

    January 1985

    It's January, and it's a brand-new season of '80s All Over, so you know what that means? TOILET MONSTERS FOR EVERYONE! Okay, it also means it's time for the Coen Brothers to make their first appearance of the decade, but more importantly, TOILET MONSTERS FOR EVERYONE! Except people who actually watch the movie with the toilet monster on the cover, since there are no toilet monsters in it. Confused? You won't be after you dig into the beginning of the year with us on January of 1985.

    The Best of 1984

    The Best of 1984

    We all know the icons—Daniel-san and Mr. Miyagi, Peter, Ray, Winston, and Egon, Gizmo and Stripe, and Freddy Krueger—but 1984 was so much more than that. Before we move on, it's time to review the year's biggest winners at the box-office and at the Oscars, and for Scott and Drew to pick their ten favorite films from a very stacked year. Will you agree? Will you be infuriated? Will Scott remember that The Terminator was released this year? You'll find out all of that and more as we reach the halfway point with the Best of 1984.

    December 1984

    December 1984

    Michael Keaton was quasi-deadly, Mel Gibson was both in prison and on the farm, and Boogaloo Shrimp was breakin’ again, thank god. Francis Ford Coppola went to Harlem so he could watch Gregory Hines fly, Peter Hyams proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he had the biggest balls in Hollywood, and David Lynch went to deep space so he could confuse a generation. We’ve got rancid farce, frustrating star vehicles, and epic adventures. Plus, if you ask real nice, we just might teach you how to do the Neutron Dance. Let’s put a bow on it and stick December 1984 under the tree!
