The Risky Business of 80s Movies Why are 80s movies so great? The Agora is Greek for 'open place of assembly’. Later the Agora defined the open-air, often tented, marketplace of a city where merchants had their shops and where craftsmen made and sold their wares. It was in the Agora of Athens that the great philosopher Socrates questioned the market-goers on their understanding of the meaning of life, attracting a crowd of Athenian youth who enjoyed seeing the more pretentious of their elders made fools of. In this marketplace the young poet Aristocles son of Ariston heard Socrates speaking, went and burned all his works, and became the philosopher known as Plato. Today we have Micro Movie Ball. Peter and Mack, our somewhat young movie enthusiasts, ponder the reason why they keep going back to the movie well of the 80s. And why so many properties have been remade, rebooted and reimagined from this crazy decade. Is it just nostalgia or something more?
