This denim-clad, hairspray overflowing decade birthed the movie blockbuster megafranchise and the teenage angst anthem, selling out theater seats as galactic space emperors and high school heartthrobs sent cinematic shockwaves up our spines.

Writer's Viewpoint: The Overwrought, Weighty Melodrama Of Tyler Perry's Movies Is Abysmal

March 31st, 2009 1:19pm EDT
Madea Goes to Jail
Coming across the occasional blind spot is inevitable in the world of popular culture. You may know everything there is to know about "Lost" but when it comes to talking about Twilight, you're completely clueless. Tyler Perry movies are like that for me. His name floated around in my head for years, but I knew next to nothing about his work. I knew that he was a director and a playwright. I knew that his DVD sales were astronomical. And I knew that all of his movies reminded me of Big Momma's House or Honky Grandma Be Trippin'.

I always assumed that Perry was a bit of a DVD phenomenon ...

The Tarantino Flicks

Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction

When Quentin Tarantino, alongside Robert Rodriguez, was promoting Grindhouse, he explained that he always finds the beat of his movies by going through an impressive vinyl collection. He writes his scripts with the soundtrack in mind and even uses specific songs in his scripts for specific areas of a film. Maybe this is why his movies always have some pretty groovy tunes. Can you honestly listen to "Stuck in the Middle with You" the same way after Reservoir Dogs?

Two of the best songs that accompany an opening titl...
