Sure, it was the time of big hair, glam bands ... and SAVED BY THE BELL's "Screech"! But also a decade where legendary "old school" film makers such as John Huston, Billy Wilder and Stanley Kubrick were still cranking out popular entertainment alongside a new generation of "movie brats" named Scorcese, Spielberg, Kasdan and a young up-and-comer called Cameron. Never before in the history of cinema had classic technique and new tech merged to such a creative degree - producing a murderer's row line up of films which still influence (and are still being imitated and remade by) the industry today. In this special edition of THE GRINDHOUSE, Craig & Jim review the current CAPT. AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER and NOAH; then welcome screenwriters Josh Coffman and Neil Gaughan to break down THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, TOP GUN, 48HRS and more iconic bad-assed 1980s era classics. Fire up the Walkman, pop in a VHS tape, crack open a brewski and join the fun!
