This year, a new wave of great cinema films add another decade to their trajectories celebrating 30 years of their debuts. Famous productions and still very dear to the general public, considered timeless and immortal. movies like Rent dogs, The Unforgivables, Aladdin, forgot me 2, Batman – The Return, Women’s perfume, The bodyguard, matter of honor, Wild instinct and Bram Stoker’s Dracula. This, of course, just to name the main ones. But the truth is that in a year, where more than a hundred productions are released, the ones that truly stay for eternity are just a handful.
Cinephiles can even delve a little deeper (after all, watching movies is the summary of their lives), however, in relation to the general public, not everything is memorable. After all, how many have heard of or remember movies like my cousin vinny, Success at Any Price, White Men Don’t Know How to Bury, The California Man, happy moon and The player – all films released in the same year mentioned and relevant at the time, but which ended up falling into oblivion.
The truth is that even with all the possible praise from critics, or contempt, it is the public who dictates what will be successful, what will be forgotten and, varying the generations, what will be rediscovered. Thus, in this new double article, the proposal is precisely to find out which among the classics of cinema that will complete 30 years in 2022, the general public has embraced once and for all and which it has decided to execrate.

After the phenomenal success Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), a true milestone not only in visual effects, but also in inter-studio deals, Paramount Pictures (she again) aimed to replicate Disney’s feat in its own home. For this, the studio decided to bet on a production that also mixed animation with live-action of real actors. Gabriel Byrne would star as a cartoonist who falls in love with his own creation, a sin in the form of a woman, in the forms of Kim Basginer. And the plot would even count as a “human policeman putting the drawings on the line”, lived by a Brad Pitt in early career. In the endeavor serving the animation and commanding the work, the specialist Ralph Bakshi – creator of Fritz cat – with his subversive style. The result is an affectionate mess.
The first Damn cemetery (1989) marked a generation of horror fans, even without being considered one of the best adaptations of a book by the master. Stephen King. Even so, a large part of the public still prefers this first version to its remake, released 30 years later. Worse than both versions, in the opinion of the fans, only this continuation of the original, taken from I don’t know where. The truth is that King never wrote a sequel to his book, and Paramount, seeking to capitalize on the success of the 89 film, pulled out a sequel that had nothing to do with the author. Who drives the project starring is Edward Furlong who, then a boy, had left the year before the phenomenon Terminator 2.
Speaking of Disney, Mickey’s studio doesn’t always get it right. Or he errs by wanting to continue a story he didn’t need. That’s the case with this sequel to the beloved Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989). The original film captured the imagination of every child at the time, whether through its use of stunning visual effects for the period, or through the creative story of an inventor father who accidentally ends up shrinking his own children and children to a size smaller than an ant. neighbor’s children. Three years later, the studio wanted to squeeze more money out of that possibility, creating a story that talks about the huge increase in size of the new baby in the family now. It didn’t have the same feel or charisma as the original, ending up forgotten by half of the fans, and hated by the other half. Soon, a new episode of this franchise will come out of the oven, with Josh Gad starring.
the star Jack Nicholson is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, and one of the most celebrated performers in film history. The actor carries true flawless classics and much adored in his filmography, works such as Chinatown, A stranger in the nest and The illuminated, for example. But when we talk about the bottom of his career, many will cite, without hesitation, a film that the actor released exactly 30 years ago. we talk about the guard dog (Man Trouble), in which he plays a crooked guard dog trainer, starting a troubled relationship with his newest client, role of Ellen Barkin.
Madonna is definitely one of the greatest pop singers that have ever passed through this planet of ours. But if in music, she is a real first lady, in cinema things are a little different for the career of the girl (now lady). Many music artists decide to take a risk and also invest in their acting careers. And that’s exactly what the material girl, who has even risked directing feature films. And if in the 80s, she basically reprized her wacky MTV model on the big screen, in the following decade Madonna dared even more. First, with the documentary without mincing words or modesty, In Bed with Madonna (1991), and 30 years ago, she was starring in her own erotic thriller. Many could not avoid comparisons with Wild instinctand well, that’s exactly what Body in Evidence is: a cheap and shameless clone of the Sharon Stone.
06. Christopher Columbus: The Adventure of Discovery
You know those epic movies that become timeless, representing an impressive historical feat, made by man. Well, that was the plan for this adventure feature about the explorer that gives the film its name. But the result was not quite as planned. With distribution by Warner, history of Mario Puzo (The Godfather), direction of John Glen (from the latest films from Roger Moore as 007 and the two with Timothy Dalton) and big people like Marlon Brandon in the cast, the objective was to transform Christopher Columbus in an unforgettable work, whose prestige would reach directly in the awards of the cinema and the Oscar. Well, all that the project managed to do was quickly reach the Golden Raspberry – failing to be taken seriously by critics, it ended up quickly forgotten, falling into obscurity.
Proving that the general public cannot be deceived, and knows how to recognize quality – or lack thereof -, this vehicle for the star Sylvester Stallone it is considered the definitive low point in his career. And he himself claims this. And as much as we love the actor, we know that he has some fiascos in his repertoire. stallone is not shy about revealing in interviews that he was tricked into making the feature, all because his biggest rival at the time, Arnold Schwarzenegger, had a rumor spread that he was dying to star in the film, and that if Stallone didn’t do it, he would take the spot. Thinking he was stealing the candy from the Austrian’s mouth, Sly went thirsty to the pot. But it was the ex-Governator who had the last laugh. The plot is basically the tough cop (Sly) having to deal with her nosy, crazy mother (Estelle Getty).
Fifth-rate thriller, this love crimes aimed to capitalize on the sadistic figure of the actor Patrick Berginwon in the previous year thanks to the success Sleeping with the enemy – with Julia Roberts. Here, the actor plays another type of psychotic sadist, who doesn’t just make his wife’s life hell, but that of several women. In the film, he plays a sexual predator, who protects himself due to several loopholes in the law in cases like this – even more so at that time. On his heels is a prosecutor played by Sean Young (in Blade Runner and No way out). The film was massacred, but the ads praised the fame that both actors had… in the video market at the time! – which is still curious.
The first creatures (1986) arrived, taking a clear ride on the absurd success that Gremlins had done two years earlier. Both films had little creatures that at first glance are cute and seem harmless. But a second look is enough to realize that they are extremely deadly beings. These here come directly from space. The first feature was a fiction with a totally B climate, which didn’t take itself too seriously. The first sequel was released in the 1980s. In the third film, we had none other than a young Leonardo DiCaprio starring in the feature released in 1991. In this room, the plot was moved entirely into space, and the production marked one of the actress’s first outstanding works. Angela Bassett.
In the 80’s and 90’s, strongmen like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger reigned in action cinema. Below them, other names well remembered by fans, such as Jean-Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal, Dolph Lundgren and Chuck Norris, for example. We still have the rock bottom list of actors who have been swept under the rug over the years, see Michael Dudikoff and Brian Bosworth. But there is always something that lies below rock bottom. And this is the case with the big twins Peter Paul and David Paulwho starred in films such as the barbarians (1987), Think big (1989) and Two Not Perfect Babysitters (1994). In this rubbish, the duo lives police officers trying to dismantle a diamond trafficking gang.
The first steel eagle (1986) was immortalized as the most illustrious copy of the hit top gun – although it has been released before, fitting more as a “twin” movie of the long Tom Cruise. But if top gun won a continuation just this year, steel eagleO came out ahead and released its first sequel in the 1980s (in 1988). 30 years ago, the third film debuted – which is not considered worse than the fourth in the franchise, which would still come in 1995. All making use of the Oscar winner’s protagonism Louis Gossett Jr. In this third feature, the proposal was for a female main character, which Gossett’s character would sponsor this time. And she was played by the muscular Rachel McLish.
