80s BEAT REVIEWED
“80s Beat” is a compilation of 7 of the best 1980s teen movies. Plus, you get “Side Out” from 1990. If you can forget that C. Thomas Howell vehicle, then you have some Kirk Cameron body swapping and Flatliners. Wait…Flatliners was 1990 too. So, we have 6 great movies from the 1980s. You probably already own The Legend of Billie Jean on Blu. So, I guess that leaves 4 decent movies and The New Kids. The New Kids was directed by the Friday the 13th franchise creator and written by the Prince of Persia’s dad. Check that out to see early psycho James Spader terrorize Aunt Becky from Full House.
So, this release has 1 good movie on it. You can handle one movie.
