Someone is going to have to explain their logic to me.
I am puzzled by Sam's definition of "cool"

Aren't they all movies that take place in winter/cold?

I misread Point Blank as Point Break and exclaimed, "Good call!"

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (very 80's cool)


By which you are telling us that the 80's were not cool...

Perhaps it'd be easier to list films that are uncool. I think we can all agree that the majority of films directed by Ron Howard aren't very cool. No one loves PARENTHOOD or THE DA VINCI CODE in the same way they love THE HUSTLER or NORTH BY NORTHWEST. They lack a certain panache. They don't feel all that risqué. The dialogue falls flat.

I have said it before and I'll say it again: the eighties were a time of darkness. A very much uncool sort of darkness.

Bondo keeps insisting some people love The DaVinci Code. I am unconvinced.

The 80s aren't as cool as the 70s or 90s, but you still had Miyazaki, Mann, Carpenter, Wenders, and (Spike) Lee off the top of my head.
