After Avengers Endgame hit theaters last year, a lot of Marvel fans found themselves in a delirious state of fatigue. Who can blame them? Endgame pretty much cemented the Marvel Universe as the biggest film franchise there is. In one of the most iconic final battle sequences, widely known as 'Portals', we saw all of our favourite heroes side by side in a battle cry against Thanos. By the time the credits rolled, it seemed as if there wasn't any other way to move forward. The death of Iron Man, fat Thor accepting his new image, Black Widow's death, Captain America ageing away and a talking as well as a less troubled Hulk seemed like a mighty final goodbye.
It seems as if everyone and anyone these days looks back at the 80s as their favourite decade, even if they weren't born in it, in part because of the wave of nostalgia seen in pop culture in recent memory. And even though I admire music from that period, I'll be quick to say upon my recent reflection of it, that even though most jams have a feel good element to them (think anything by A-ha or Duran, Duran and the such). There is very little in terms of conversation going on there. And by this I mean the umbilical cord between the listener and the performer and the world around them.
I'll just go out and say that I find the 70s to be not only the greatest decades for cinema, but also quite frankly the best decade for horror films, period. Whenever I talk to fellow cinema lovers, they'll generally agree, that is of course if they indulge in that decade as often as I do.
