Rocky IV (1985)

Rocky IV Quote: “If I can change and you can change, everybody can change” – Rocky Balboa


Rocky IV punched its way into the heart of ’80s kid by giving us an overload of all the things America loves: a dopy Sylvester Stallone, a terrifying-yet-misunderstood Dolph Lundgren, a sexy robot, Cold War speeches, Carl Weathers’ mustache and training montages.

Sure, the punches looked off, the scenes were largely recycled and A GUY DIED IN AN EXHIBITION FIGHT, but after 31 years we’re still thrilled by this beefcake brawlapalooza that’s tough as snails Continue reading Rocky IV (1985)

Gremlins (1984)

Gremlins Quote: “Give him to me. I’ll take him to the kennel, they’ll put him to sleep. It will be quick and painless compared to what I would do to him.” – Ruby Deagle


Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to his hometown of Hill Valley in 1955… Wait same town, wrong movie.

A horde of miniature green monsters tear through the small town of Kingston Falls after a mild-mannered bank teller Billy unwittingly unleashes the destructive powers of his new exotic pet. His failure to follow his pet’s three simple rules: No water (but beer is ok), no food after midnight, and no bright light lead to countless deaths and undoubtedly years of legal battles for the Peltzer family.

So, when your washing machine blows up or your TV goes on the fritz, before you call the repair man, turn on all the lights and look under all the beds. ‘Cause you never can tell, there just might be a gremlin in your house, or it just might be Billy Peltzer sabotaging your entire life.
