It will make you want to live in the 80s
21 May 2017 | by Peaceful224See all my reviews

It was during Christmas break and there was nothing on TV to watch but this. I'm 14 now but at the time I was 10 years old. It was the best documentary I ever watched.

It made me feel jealous of all the people that got to experience the 80s and live through it. When I was watching the documentary, it made me feel like I was there. The movies, the music, the politics, it was all explained perfectly. It's all so much better than the stuff we have now a days.
