I hate to say, but yes it was badass back then... the 00's and 10's were mostly just copies of all the cool stuff with less person to person interaction and more technology... the 70's were prob cool too... I'd burn my bra and protest the heck out of everything if I lived back then hehe
The 80s were great. Now days, people tend to badmouth the past, our past, their past, everyone's past, and for what? Being a few years old? So, EVERYTHING in 1999 sucked but everything in 2000 is the greastest thing EVER? Saying how lame it was, how poor the technology was, how cheap and corny movie effects were etc. I say FUCK YOU! We shoud embrace what we had, for if we hadn't had those 'cheap' and 'corny' special effects, 'oor technology' and a 'lame' past, we wouldn't be where we are today! We wouldn't be as advanced as we are today! plus, in the 80s there were LAVA LAMPS! OMG! THOSE ARE AWESOME!
