80-90s general discussion thread

Is nostalgia a dangerous thing or was life actually better back in the 80's and 90's? No one wants to get stuck in the nostalgia trap but are we really living in the ruins of a better civilization?

Tell me some good 80s movies lads

We got pilled by movies

I was blessed to grow up in a pre Walmart town in the 80s. Not too big. Not too small. There where some great places to hangout and there where places I have some great memories of my Grandfather when he was still in his late 50's. Vital and healthy. We went ice fishing,saw movies together. I remember having an old fashioned malt at this family owned pharmacy that had been around since the 1940s while he talked sports with the owner. I remember the movie theater. Not AMC owned but an old fashioned movie house in the art deco style with 80s neon additions to the decor. I remember block BBQ's and trick or treating when the whole block competed for most spooky yard decor. People where friendlier. There was optimism. You never heard the anti America sentiment or whining brown people and complaining queers. Maybe it wasn't perfect,maybe it was flawed but it was a hell of a lot better than this shit era.

>>396065656You thought you got pilled by movies. You got Jewed instead. The standard Jew psyop is to put out a movie that mostly speaks the truth when there is public curiosity on a topic - but subtly mix it with another signal so that the distraction signal can then be amplified. In the case of Eyes Wide Shut, it was the orgy and Nicole Kidman's innocent sexuality. THAT is what people remember about Eyes wide shut. Same idea with the Matrix. It's the correct representation of reality - BUT it ends with Neo being a rebel. Combined with the imagery and messaging of the rock scene, you essentially generated Boomber v2 from all kids who grew up in the 80s and 90s. The default template of the Jews for the white Goys is the boomer pack - completely narcissistic and completely ignorant of their narcissism. Once you create a moronic generation like that, it is very very very easy to build a hero/redeemer generation. Anyway, the supposed redpill movies and associated infrastructure are why morons like Steve O and Tom Delonge are being given the responsibility of disclosure. Cause they're cool.

>>396066329>Matrix>BUT it ends with Neo being a rebelIt tells the story of a "multicultural" crew. There are just two white men. One white man is evil and is the bad betrayer - due to his unwillingness to accept reality.The other one sacrifices himself to save Zion and his feminist strong wamen.

>>396065403Nostalgia is a psyop meant to discredit people's recognition of trends. Today's young people don't recognize how shit the world is now (and we do because we're older and we've seen a better life), which is natural because they've only just started living, they're optimistic for their future and they don't know any better. In 10 years from now those same people would also notice that everything had become worse, except they won't because they'll be brainwashed into thinking that nostalgia is a thing. They will think to themselves "the jews aren't ruining the world gradually, I am just being nostalgic".There is no such thing as nostalgia. Everything in the past was objectively better and everything is getting objectively worse, by conscious design of the jews ruining our world. Nostalgia is just a meme idea meant to combat people's recognition of worsening state of affairs.

They are just zoomers who larp as boomers because they think their life would be better if they were around in the 80s and 90s when in fact they would've felt exactly the same as they are now and if they were alive back then they would be complaining about how the 80s is too superficial and poised and how the trad 50s are so much better.Zoomers can't even go a day without their smartphones, what makes it seem that they can survive the 80s and 90s back when people were still reading newspapers and calling on landline. Zoomers are so fucking retarded, holy shit.

>>396068508Why are millenials so mean, dumb, and closed minded? You see genders as only black or white, when in reality its multi-colored. Genders are very much a mood and generally people can go on a phase for years and that should be respected as a human right. And let's not even begin with talking about race. Plus, half of you don't even believe in electric cars or saving the planet. Us zoomers are here to save the future. We're going to start by sharing everything. 1 car = 1 community. We're already sharing property, airbnb and its been working great. Why can't we recreate the model with everything else? Share rooms, roommates! Sharing pets is already happening. Sharing clothes, thrifting! Sharing each other, polyamory! You don't have to own anything to be happy, you just have to be happy to be happy!

Nostalgia is interesting and you learn something about yourself if you dig into it deep enough. It is mostly useless for moving forwardThe important thing about the 80s is it is the last American decade where white culture dominated. Everything after was a fusion, a dilution. Anything made in it's style and ethos will be inaccessible to anyone but white and some black and hispanic Americans even if you never lived in the 80s. That's where it has the most value and will likely reform as virtual environments of the future. 80s irl is not the same as 80s nostalgia. It doesn't have the longing and depression that comes from post 90s culture.>T. in 1980 I was 12 years old in NYC. It was better than anyone can conceive of online nowyoutube.com/watch?v=9OFpfTd0EIs

>>396066204I vaguely remember this as a child and thinking it was great. Then it quickly became dog eat dog and everyone for themselves. Minorities and immigrants unironically destroyed the cohesive communities Americans had built until then.

>>396065403no social media. you went to the arcade to play video games and meet people. when you were younger you rode around on your bike going by all your friends houses to see where everyone went - you can tell by the 5 other bikes parked on the lawn. out and about from morning until the street lights came on. moms had a phone chain and knew exactly where you were and what you did. porn stashes.

>>396071616That diversity shit they feed us is exactly that. Pure shit. No one wants to coexist. Human beings are tribal and prefer their own kind. Blacks prefer their own,Latinos prefer their own. Whites are the only ones punished for wanting that kind of community for themselves. We are forced to mix with people we share nothing in common with,with whom we have no cohesion. Hell I can't even remember the last brown person I talked to that didn't make me uneasy or uncomfortable to be around. So sick of this melting pot shit.

>>396065403The only reason we have fondness for the past is because its not mysterious to us. If I were to travel to 2003, I know what's going to happen in the next 19 years and I wouldn't feel anxious.

>>396071467Nostalgia was considered a sickness originally.Half of me thinks this is a trick to get you to "let go of the past. Kill it if you have to."Nostalgia can become a hamper or a blockage if you let it.On the other hand, I think it's important that you have a sense of history.You should know where you were and how you got to where you are.You should value elements of your past when appropriate.We should have something to which we can look and say, "Yes, I want to recreate something good for the future and I will use the past as a model."Not that you should only look to the past.Novelty is important as well.Otherwise things become brittle and prone to breakage.There must be flexibility where it is needed.I think the past and memories are important.People, Whites especially now, need to know what happened.Otherwise we are doomed to Jewish propaganda about a fake history that they concocted that never existed.In some sense nostalgia is a natural defense against negative Jewish narrative building.youtu.be/niKFn5dK0Bc

Nostalgia is just a buzzword when you can't actually think of any real reasons as to why your life isn't good, keep at it adventurers

>>396072043Oh I know this. My Grandfather taught me all about THEM back in the 90's.

>>396071467I would argue the last decade whites had any significant dominance was the forties. Maybe the fifties. Jews really began infiltrating America from the 50s on, and the increase in black/brown culture began from the 50s and continued on, and the tipping point was from 1988 to about 93/94, when they began to really push for the normalization of ghetto nigger culture.

>>39606540380’s were great90’s were shit and the start of the slide into the fucking clown world we are in now.

>>396072291Pretty much this

>>396072728The 90s where okay but I swear the real slide to hell began in 9/11 when the whole country became hysterical and afraid of everything. If 9/11 never happened they would never have been able to get away with that "pandemic" bullshit back in 2020.

>>396072291I sort of agree with this.The deregulation of movies in the 60's gave us the weird, largely shit, cinema of the 1970's.There were some good movies in the 70's, but most of them weren't that great.That's also when they went hard into social commentary.It's like those movies were a window into the future we now "enjoy."

>>396066329the guy who made this movie also shot the fake moon landing footage, retard

>>396071172How can ya forget ghostbusters and back to the future?

It''s really hard to say. I am 41 and living through those times, but I was still kinda young. So I have nostalgia for that. You'd need people 30 plus during those decades to give a better opinion, bit I am sure most of them have nostalgia for the previous decades when they were young.

The foundations of the shit we're going through now were being laid and you could see it. Basically the evil ones realized with the JFK assassination in 63 that they could literally get away with murder. Then they started the planning and prepration for the 911 attack. When that succeeded in fucking us over then they started to dream up various pandemic scenarios...next, soon; artificial famine.

>>396073279Oh yeah.And Ghost Busters 2 (1989)The second one is like when you have a second round of dessert.You're not going to like it as much as the first, but you can't help yourself.

I still remember seeing Godzilla 1985 with my Grandfather at the local family owned theater. An old fashioned movie house style place from the 1930s they dressed up with some neon decorating the art deco era flourishes with this deep wine colored carpeting. It was amazing seeing Godzilla up on the big screen with my grandfather. Hell maybe what I miss most is my grandparents and a sense of normalcy.

>>396065403Life actually was better in the 80s. Society was higher trust than today, mostly due to more homogeneous demographics and less social decay. It was better than the 90s by a long shot. It's okay to look back to the past and reminisce occasionally, but doing it too much is usually a sign of depression.

The 80's were peak comfyI cannot say the same about the 90's, it was the starting up of the dystopian feel .Many people would argue oh but user there was nice video games and movies.Dudeee that was what literally started to isolate me from social interaction, because the world outside was very hostile already in the 90's, stupid fights over chicks, street culture was already starting showing the first signs of nobody given a fuck for others security .Ironically I would rather play pc games than deal with that shit, surely I would go out and stuff, but I recall going out always with a eye in my back and never fully feel comfortable , would always be super aware because of drugs also cause people would simple not care about consequences of the drugs on other people, they would even laugh of it. I remember "friends" dropping mda on other friend drink for "fun" without the person being aware of it, totally not loyal move .Not saying the 80's sounded better cause I was a kid in 80's and not young adult , but it seemed to have some innocence .I dunno guys during mid 90's and starting of 2000's I witness a lot of shitty things happening.

>>396081314My Grandfather redpilled me back in the 1990s about them. He taught me never trust a jew and do the exact opposite of what one tells you. He called them ghouls.

>>396068508Nobody was saying the 50’s were better in the 80’s. Nobody listened to 50’s music or imitated the culture. The 80’s was about new/digital/computers.

>>396081428My favorite John Carpenter movie besides Halloween of course has to be The Fog. That movie was so atmospheric and eerie.

>>396067814Early to mid 90s was amazing. From about 96 onward the downfall began

>>396082071It was a slowburn. I still remember playing Resident Evil 2 on release with my dad and his friend.

>>396082071Then 9/11 happened and the death march to hell began.

>>396081771It's great as a background movie.The plot's too thin to be attention grabbing.I'd put it on at a bar or at a party for atmosphere.I know what you mean.Carpenter had a real handle on atmosphere, tone, and aesthetic. youtu.be/Pa_buleqaMM

>>396082277He's a master at using setting and music to its full power. Watch the OG Halloween but take away his music and its not the same film at all.

Often tempted to 80's and 90's nostalgia myself. The one downside: anything tech-related. Tech is clearly better today, hands-down. PCs, smartphones, ham radios, everything is cheaper and more capable simultaneously. Aside from tech though, everything else was better back then. Even cars.

I have to say one thing about the 1980's and early 1990's it sthat you could see andexplore more and interact with more things because you whereforced to and malls where a great place to talk and make new friends idk relationships used to be a thing back then anf going to takout in side the mallwas pretty neat.i miss having fish burger and photo weges with sour cream.I used to mett my friends in the mall and play spacies and then later hang out with my gf at the cloth shopand try clothes on and pretend we where famous just for a laugh.people seemedmore relaxed and morepeople talked to each other just random small talk but at least it wasn't about what was on tv man after hearing that over and over again it gets abit boring.but no people used to talk about travel movies people , gossip about other peopleand ther was very light 80's music usually the top hits playing softly though the mall speacher and the accouncer calling out on missing kids that wondered off.the best things is being about to feel and tough the protecting and try them out before you buy.and demonstrators telling you how new things workednever see anything like that nowand of couse where was payphones for the old to get taxi's and cabsand the bus stop to get folks without cars home.yeah imiss that sometimes.got tomeet alot of new people every day and gettoknwop people that cshare the samehobbyies and what not.though most people generally just shoped and went back homeI remember every mall had a supermarket and most folks would end their shop there and just buy food and go home/ work, what ever.I have to admit though, there was a lot of security officers walking around looking for shoplifters and lost folks.Especially the elderly that would go into forbidden parts of the mall constantly most would be genitally moved somewhere safe alotof the time i had to ask security where the bathroom was or where a certain shop was. it got confusing and feet got sore alot.

>>396065403It was better in the sense that it was a technologically advanced age when things were simple, now things are technologically advanced, complex, and everything sucks

>>396082071I really think pop music died in the mid-90's.The last pop stars were slowly drifting out and sub-culture was everything.I think there was an attempt to make alternative and grunge main stream.It worked for a while.Like two or three years.Then techno got big.Prodigy, underworld, Crystal Method, Daft Punk, and so on.You could see the fracturing of culture in real time.youtu.be/KNfjpmvbQG0I suppose it's a good thing if only because Jewish controlled monolith culture is bad.We have to wade through a sea of shit to find anything worth while.But when you do find something you really appreciate it.youtu.be/TSNUjN4fISw

>>396066329The director got killed for making this film. It has missing scenes about human sacrifice

>>396065403The world was so much better before runaway globalization. If you missed out, just be happy you don't know how good it actually was to be alive back then.

stop frens the nostalgia is making me sad

>>396065403Yes, there’s no comparison, the general mood as we entered the new millenium was of progress and optimism for thd future, eight years later, the US and UK were bankrupt and we’ve had to suffer consequences since to the point we simply migrate from one crisis to another and that’s not even mentioning the systemic decline of popular culture beginning in 1990 with music and then 2000 with TV and film.

>>396083104It died in 1990 with MC Hammer’s “Can’t touch this”, some fucking clown dancing around with over exaggerated baggy pants got to number one in the charts in most english speaking countries.

Last I heard they are now going to remake this.

>>396065403Desu I really like America movie in 80s, 90s maybe some in early 2000s

>>396071172The Running Man - 1986Robocop - 1986Predator - 1987Lethal Weapon - 1987Die Hard - 1988Lethal Weapon 2 - 1989the list above are the peak of the action film genre in the 1980’s.

>>396080282basically this

>>396082571Stanley Kubrick once said something about how editing a film was really about audio.Editing video is best when you have solid audio as the foundation of the edit.You're creating an emotional experience and an implied response.In large part it's a physiological response.Anyone in media knows this.We're now familiar with the tricks used (lowering the volume before a jump scare).Here's an example of a good edit based solely on good audio.Yes, I lament that she's a Jew, but it can't be helped.It's a good edit.youtu.be/Mt9FG9YjBMM

>>396081623you're grandfather sounded like a pretty smart guy, my grandfather told me never to lower my guard around blacks as they're unpredictability is comparable to wild animals.

>>396084948He worked at IBM for 5 yrs. He did work on some of the computers NASA used. Imagine him seeing that movie where they tried to credit the whole moon landing on some black skanks.

My bad 35 yrs. He never wanted to retire. He was so bored being retired.

>>396071411Nice.

>>396084214HA!While I don't think it was MC Hammer, I kinda get what you're saying.89'-92' was this odd area where "taste makers" didn't yet know what they wanted next.They were still trying to push the stylish black man idea.Arsenio Hall, Bill Cosby, Will Smith, and so on.In the back ground was N.W.A. and taste makers had yet to fully realize what a great divisive tool they were.Most Whites, at that time, were "post-racial" and would've seen black music as just another expression of art.Silly in retrospect.Funniest thing is a lot of Whites ended up embracing some of those sounds and did it better than the niggers.Say what you will, we got some good music out of it.youtu.be/_1aCB2hbMFgAnyway, yeah, MC Hammer was ridiculous.Even at the time, while he was on the radio, people were making fun of him.Milli Vanilli.You remember those guys?There was a whole complex churning out cringe while trying to pass it off as art at that time.

>>396065656>>396066329Any time you read or watch something that supposedly shows you the unembellished, ugly truth, you are probably watching jewish propaganda. They want you to see the world as evil and brutal.

>>396084397I'd buy that for a dollar!

>>396081771Classic. His movies had a real subtle vibe to them maybe besides Assault on Precinct 13 which was non stop gunfire throughout a lot of the movie. Think it was his first.

>>396085300Their tikun olam necessitates a broken world to be fixed.And, by an amazing coincidence, they're the only ones who can fix it.

>>396086050>people legitimately enjoying somethingI remember enjoying things without cynicism.Good times.youtu.be/dddixPDWcp4

How do we move forward from here?

>>396087540I regard this as being a necessary part of keeping it alive.People need to know what happened.We have to know the past.What happened so that we can make some movements into the future.We can't just devise a comprehensive civilizational plan on a basket weaving forum on a weeknight.Well, not at this hour, anyway.I think the recognition of the past as being objectively better is a start.Of course those heady days in early 2016 were pretty great.We can recapture that in the future.We have to lay groundwork.I think community building is probably key.In the 80's and 90's you had communities that don't really exist anymore.Everything is insular now.You don't have a bowling team.You go bowling alone, as they say.I have a weekly meeting with friends and all we do is play cards.That's it.Cards are cheap and require people to interact.No politics unless it comes up and we let it go in general when it does.I think just finding people with who you can live is probably the best thing you can do.Find people who are gregarious.Those people are gems.The thing that I've noticed is that consistency is really important.If you see people here and there it's whatever.But if you do something weekly, it turns into something.Even if a particular person can't make one week or another, they'll show up when they can.With enough people you end up with spontaneous relationships and interactions.Quality people is important, so start with a few that are really good people.Well, that's what's on my mind when such a question is posed.

>>396088674Good answer.

>>396078314The 90s and 2000s. What you described, I witnessed here in Canada. It makes me bitter. You had a lot more free speech and freedom in the 90s compared to now, but those controlling the mass media and everything else decided to remove the optimism of the 80s and start to go full dystopian degeneracy. Video games got the blame for everything even though games were fictional media. With video games you just had a piece of entertainment that doesn’t reward you in real life. In fact, you get punished for being part of gaming and geek culture. Now compare this to the real cause of dystopian degeneracy. Black culture. Rappers rapping about killing and pumping and hating on whites. They were rewarded with huge recording contracts. This made so many whites become race traitors. Here all the kidswanted to be involved with black culture, even wanting to get involved with the Bloods vs. Crips gang wars and other disgusting parts of black culture. Parents turned a blind eye to it due to not wanting to be called a racist and the fact video games and “satanic” rock music kept getting blamed for everything. So yeah I say the mid 90s is when things went to shit thanks to black culture and the race traitor whites wanting to be black and letting the blacks get away with everything.

>>396066204My town didn't get a walmart until the early 2000's. It was amazing to see a thriving downtown and lots of mom and pops shops everywhere for everything. Everybody's parents were entrepreneurs and many more people made $25 an hour in the 80's and 90's from the local steel mill. The town had big festivals, the companies poured money into every little thing including street lights and public parks. Now the town is a withered husk, everyone's on public assistance, and meth/pain pills/and heroin are the new church. Abusing yourself is the new sacrament.

>>396091051Ah sorry about that. Thought you were a young one.I hear this from Gen-Xr's almost everyday where I live. I'm early Gen-X myself. Everyone just seems to be over it. I generally feel the same.I jsut finished watching What We Do Is Secret (2008) about an hour ago.It's about Darby Crash and the Germs in 1980.Belinda Carlisle was their drummer and she joined the band from a flyer at her school that said, "Two girls that can't play an instrument but want to be in a band"The rest was history for her.I would not want to be a young man growing up today knowing and having lived in the 70s and 80s. I wonder if ignorance is bliss for them.Just found out a few days ago that my neighbor has cancer. he was born in 65. He told, I don't care, I'm done with all this, the world has turned to shit. I'm paraphrasing.Dunno what to say to you except, you are not alone in what you are feeling.Someone should start a I love the 1980s Trailer Park somewhere and we could all go live there.

>>396091212The last time I went to my hometown was 2009 and it was the saddest thing I ever saw. Downtown is stone cold dead so the chamber of commerce did that thing where they paint colorful murals of olde timey shop fronts on the glass of the long dead store fronts and the few things downtown are two thrift shops,a pawn store,a Gamestop and a sad chain diner. Most of the buildings where painted drab modern colors and nothing was recognizable. There where also three hookers hanging out in front of the pawn shop. In broad daylight.
