4673ArticleSupermanI liked a lot of things about the 2000s. As you said, there were a lot of great movies coming out, many of which would go on to be huge franchises with tons of sequels. I also view that decade as a golden age of live-action television. A lot of the shows that were airing had a "movie" quality to them that wasn't seen in most shows airing in previous decades. Nov 16, 2018View

3513ArticlecaptainzorikhWomen never looked batter than they did in the 1980's/ One detail you missed was BELTS! Somehow those hip-riding belts inspired by punk fashions seemed to serve no purpose but a) draw attention to those sexy, curved hips in tight acid-washed jeans and b) when cinching a loose blouse or shirt, managed to cause that blouse or shirt to drape a female figure in such a way as to inspire the imagination of the perfect female figure (at least for me).Women's Fashion of the 80sApr 13, 2016View

3667ArticleTrigonisThis article raises an important topic: "...at what point does profit trump our nostalgia?" I don't know the answer either, but I think there are two sides here: The ones wearing the 1985 goggles (to borrow the author's terms) who are so sucked into the nostalgia of their youth that they are petrified with fear of change to set that aside and see the new M.A.S.K. for what it is. A good story (but that REVOLUTION storyline with the Joes and Transformers, that was utter trash, sorry to say –– best thing about it was M.A.S.K.) –– that aims to "neutralize" past aspects of the original and beloved '85 series, namely the premise of transforming vehicles with superpowered masks, which I think is sufficient for the nostalgia factor, with a more innovative and sharper edge that's much more relevant for today's audiences. I highly doubt IDW, Brandon, Tony, and Tommy are swimming Scrooge McDuck-style in gold coins with this series, so I don't think it's a question of profit trumping nostalgia, it's about us trumping our own nostalgia and enjoying a good story. And this is coming from someone who also has fond memories of sitting around with my M.A.S.K. toys as a kid at Christmas. But that was in 1985. The only reason I'm enjoying the new M.A.S.K. is because IDW and the creators are not trying to smack me with nostalgia in anything except the covers; instead, they've given us something completely new, and I for one appreciate them not messing with my childhood too much.The Rebirth of M.A.S.K. and the Nostalgia StruggleJan 05, 2017View
