We have been watching a bunch of 80s movies with our tween lately, and while we were excited to share our love of these movies with her at first, she is so much more "woke" than we were at her age. She is quick to point out rape culture, racism, sexism and other issues with movies. She's also very unimpressed with cheap effects!
Some of these movies still remain favorites even after she points out the issues. Overboard and Dirty Dancing will always have a place in my heart. There are some movies, however, that she's pretty much ruined for me for life! It's a good thing, but it's also a sad thing, and I'm always reminded how much I learn from her. She's been my best teacher.
Are there any 80s movies that you hate today that you once loved? Why? Share your thoughts in the chat.
