The Eighties Live but Lego’s Rule

A trip to the local movie theater can often feel like a journey back in time, as visions of the 1980s (albeit in a modernized environment) captured hearts while filling seats this long holiday weekend. Despite the eighties hype, “The Lego Movie” once again built the biggest audience at the domestic box office, coming in at #1 with $48.8 million. Those in the mood for romance were talking “About Last Night” from the 80s inspired land of #2 with $27 million. The reborn once more “RoboCop” stormed onto the cinematic scene, telling romantics to take a flying leap while taking over the #3 spot with $21.5 million. “The Monuments Men” were conducting a tribute to present-day films from the #4 place with $15 million. An “Endless Love” affair was happening at the lovely #5 location, finding that love, in the end, was worth $13.5 million.
The 1980s and the stories they inspired were “totally” awesome when transported to the magical big screen. Toy tycoons and WWII wannabe’s went to war of sorts with tortured love tales from the past and outdated officers of the robotic type.
Who was your type this weekend?
From seaside days to starry nights, may this coming week be endlessly entertaining, monumentally memorable and rivetingly retro…
