I only watched a little. They predicted "Hoodies", but not the fall in the popularity of marriage. The door bell seems ostentatious. I stopped when he got out the guitar and was going to sing.

Were Hoodies a 'thing' in 1980 Dave?
I can't remember them back then, it was all like New Romance stuff wasn't it?

I had a hoodie in 1981. I don't remember how long I'd had it, but certainly it was not called a hoodie, even though it certainly was one.

Hoodie? In the first few minutes there is an electric hand dryer (1921 patented, yet not popular until '48), security cameras, video-phones, re-animation or perhaps cloning... It's the future!

Just Imagine. They got the long shirt collar tips right. Nurses wearing hotpants missed the mark, while the hemlines got shorter, they were replaced by pants before they got that short.

Since the rules are always changing, a new category for cult films could be old black and white movies and silent films that relatively few are watching now but did really good at the box office when first released.

1925 - The Lost Continent

1933 - King Kong

I never get tired of watching the original King Kong, it just doesn't age for me. The dark black and white sets make the whole movie seamlessly fit together.

I seen half hour of it, going back to finish it. The hoodies just covered the head and shoulders for flying in an open cockpit, probably was already a real article of clothing. Sometimes the props open up more doors than the dialogs.

It should be science fiction and fantasy movies.

Just Imagine the movie, the songs are terrible, the flight to Mars so far unmemorable. The guy they resurrected is a comic relief version of Dracula's servant, Renfield.
