Posted April 02, 2018 07:54:08 The 1980s were a golden age for the modern film, a time of innovation and innovation, but with nostalgia and nostalgia comes a need to find something to bring back.
We all know that moviegoers will find something in the 80s to love, but how do you bring those films back to life?
A group of filmmakers have tried their hand at making that happen.
Their films are worth revisitation, but they’re not as accessible to the average moviegoer.
A look at the best and worst films of the 1980s.
The Man Who Sold the World: The Lion King, 1995 The Man who Sold the Worlds most celebrated film, The Lion Heel, had a big impact on how people saw African-Americans.
When it came out, it was a smash hit with African-American audiences, and was the first film to take the black-and-white genre to a whole new level.
It also set a precedent for black actors in films.
The film’s Oscar win was a huge victory for black cinema and paved the way for black filmmakers to make a career for themselves.
And yet, The Man He Sold the world isn’t as accessible as its star, Donald Glover, would like you to believe.
The man who sold the world, Martin Luther King Jr., was the least popular African- American president in U.S. history.
A few decades later, Glover’s own character is an all-American college professor with a black boyfriend named Mr. Robinson, played by Donald Glover.
In this clip, Glover discusses how The Man he Sold theworld was never really his intention and why he has made the movie he did.
The Great Beauty: The Color Purple, 1971 The Great Color Purple was a major success for American cinema, but the film also made many African- Americans uneasy.
The main villain was a white woman named Betty Brant, played beautifully by Linda Hamilton.
The movie opened with an all white cast and set in New Orleans, Louisiana.
But it’s an all too familiar sight today.
In the 1960s, African- and Black-American films were largely ignored and black characters were often used to prop up white leads.
This time around, director Jim Jarmusch made a splash with The Color of Money, which was an all black film.
The story was set in the 1950s and focused on the plight of black farmers in Alabama and Alabama’s cotton counties.
The director, Robert Altman, created a beautiful cast and an exciting film.
In his words, it is a movie that shows a country that is being rebuilt after the Civil War and that has overcome prejudice.
The Last Days of the Sun: The Long Walk to Freedom, 1989 A classic American story about the civil rights movement.
The Long Walking to Freedom tells the story of four young black women, all of whom had escaped slavery.
The final scene shows a black man, a man of color, and two black children in a train.
They’re not playing in this film.
It was a bold statement at the time, but it didn’t take long for it to get lost in the shuffle of the Civil Rights Movement.
The Thin Blue Line: The Untold Story of the Tuskegee Airmen, 1942 This movie, starring a black Tuskegoan man, tells the harrowing story of the U. S. military’s Tuskegone prisoners who were sent to a military camp.
In 1942, Tuskegos, or African Americans, fought for the Confederacy and eventually became an integral part of the war effort.
It’s an emotional film about the sacrifice Tuskegs made for the cause of freedom and the suffering they suffered during the war.
The documentary The Thin White Duke follows the Tuskeegee Aircrew and its black crew members as they were forced to fight in World War II.
The Tuskeegees are depicted as heroic soldiers, who were forced from their homes and forced to be trained in combat tactics.
My Father the Sea: The True Story of Capt. James B. Walker, 1944 This film is one of the most celebrated American Navy dramas of the 20th century.
Walker is a U.K. Navy captain who fought in the Battle of the Coral Sea in the Pacific in 1941.
He’s also an accomplished naval historian.
This film tells the real story of Walker’s life, including the horrors of the Pacific War and his exploits as a sailor.
The Untouchables: The Life and Times of Charles Whitman, 1966 This was a landmark film for the civil liberties movement.
In 1966, a former classmate of Charlie Whitman, who was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, shot and killed the poet and activist.
This became a seminal film about civil rights and racial equality.
It has a profound impact on today’s discussions about civil liberties and the importance of diversity in the public sphere.
