There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!

The wildly fun Nurse 3D (review) is coming home in April, and right now we've got the official word on what to expect once it gets here other than a 1080p look at Paz de la Huerta's commanding vagina.

Before The Lego Movie could hit theaters last Friday, some assembly was required.
Correction: A lot of assembly.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s incredibly entertaining “block”buster is a hyperkinetic Frankenfilm, cobbled together from a variety of sources both huge (the classic “hero’s journey” monomyth) and teeny (does a certain dolphin noise sound familiar?). The movie is also filled with casting in-jokes, snippets of dialogue borrowed from other movies, and callbacks to the directors’ past work. All in all, it’s enough to make your head spin, Lego minifigure-style — there’s no way for one person to catch »

Stars: Aubrey Plaza, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Rachel Bilson, Johnny Simmons, Bill Hader, Alia Shawkat, Sarah Steele, Andy Samberg, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Clark Gregg | Written and Directed by Maggie Carey
Brandy Klark (Plaza) is an intellectually successful but socially inept student at an Idaho high school in 1993. This differentiates her starkly from her popular sister Amber (Bilson), who mocks Brandy for still being a virgin. Brandy protests that she almost slept with an older guy named Rusty (Scott Porter) once, but quickly realises that she will have to obtain greater experience soon or face further ridicule. She duly sets out to seduce Rusty by taking a job as a lifeguard at the pool where he works but faces several obstacles along the way. Can her fellow socially awkward friend Cameron (Simmons) help her out?

Mariah let the whole world know that she and Nicki are still enemies, dissing the rapper on air during a morning talk show on Feb. 12.
The hatchet is far from buried between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. In a radio interview with New York based hip-hop station Power 105.1, Mariah had no problems letting listeners in on what she thought about Nicki. Watch the interview below and see what the diva had to say!
Mariah and Nicki battled relentlessly on American Idol and during a new on-air interview on Feb. 12 for “The Breakfast Club,” Mariah made it very clear that the grudge match is far from over. Mariah originally went on air to promote her new single “You’re Mine” from her new album Eternal, but she also had the time to slam Nicki.
Take Our Poll
One host of the show made a comment »
Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, who rubbed each other the wrong way as “American Idol” judges, are at it again after the two singers released new videos on the same day. Both stars appear nearly nude. Mariah showed there’s been no loved lost between the two in a wide-ranging interview on The Breakfast Club, a morning show on Power 105.1, a New York Hip-Hop and R&B radio station. ...Read More »
You love to hate them, you hate to love them. There is an irresistible quality to the bad men in film, whose dastardly ways lure you in and keep you rooting for them until the bitter end.
With the remake of 1981’s turbulent Endless Love out this Valentine’s Day, starring Alex Pettyfer as a boy in love with a criminal past, we celebrate some of cinema’s most notorious, sometimes misunderstood scoundrels and their paths to retribution.
Dir. John Hughes, 1985
Spending the majority of John Hughes’ fantastic teen film slumped over a desk and setting things on fire, Judd Nelson’s juvenile Bender is the definition of angst. Criminally minded, troubled and at times malicious, Hughes still urges you not to give up on him, with glimmers of a better person under that grubby coat and a victory that will have you punching the »

A few years ago I wrote a piece on my blog Day of the Woman about unrealistic horror couples, this isn’t to be confused with “worst horror couples” or like what Ryan Turek over at Shock Till You Drop posted, “Doomed Horror Romances.” Instead, I wanted to focus on couples in horror movies that really have no business being together. Some of these couples I’m judging from the shallow perspective of appearances, but some of these couples just don’t seem compatible. Now that I’m a little older and a little more in tune to what actually makes for a good relationship, I’ve re-vamped and revitalized this list just in time for everyone’s favorite holiday developed by the greeting card industry. Note: If you and your significant other resemble any of the couples we make fun of, we’re not making fun of you…we »

Darlene Love has a mighty voice, but yesterday she really let it rip. At her home in New Jersey, she'd just finished her regular morning meditation and settled in to watch some of the Oscar nominations on TV. And at one point, she says, "I just screamed! My husband was in the other room and said, 'What? What?' Now they can put 'Oscar nominee' next to my name along with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
Artist Sean Combs has been working hard with former MTV executive vice president Andy Schon to build Revolt, a new channel that is geared at music fans. It features music videos, interviews and live performances, while at the same time using social media to have an on-going conversation with the audience.
At the 2014 TCA press tour, the team from Revolt announced its flagship program, "Revolt Live," a one-hour program launching Monday, Jan. 27, airing daily at both 5 p.m. Et and 8 p.m. Et.
Hosting "Revolt Live" are Sibley (aka Mc Sib Vicious) and DJ Damage, who are excited about this new program that harkens back to the days of old-school MTV while being up-to-the-minute with the advent of social media.
"It brings live energy, it brings communication with social media -- we talk to the fans, we talk to the people. We talk to people with them in their homes, »
The term ‘Brat Pack’ was of course given to a now infamous group of young actors who appeared in many teen-oriented movies in the 1980s – a large proportion of which were directed by John Hughes. Among them were names as famous as Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Anthony Michael Hall and a seemingly huge cast of players.
Membership of the ‘official’ Brat Pack is dependent upon being in either St Elmo’s Fire or The Breakfast Club, but there were a lot of other young actors and actresses starring in other films, who could feasibly be considered in the same vein – so I have widened the net a bit, but I think they could all legitimately be called Brat Pack movies.
The actors who were given this title apparently hated it. They were awarded the title thanks to an article by David Blum »

Set in the world of DC's New 52, Justice League: War, being released next month, is inspired by the first Jl arc written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Jim Lee. As things unfold, the members of the League meet for the first time and have to learn to work together while fighting Darkseid and his minions. "My take was basically The Breakfast Club With Superheroes," laughs writer Heath Corson. "These are guys who are meeting each other for the first time; these are people who have maybe seen or heard of each other. The world is just starting to know about them. What if they had no idea about each other, what they're capable of, what they'll do, what they can do? These are guys in their '20s and, let's be honest, a 25-year-old Green Lantern is a douche. He's a frat boy. And then you rub him against Batman, »
