With movies though there are many from my childhood that I love which I know if a similar movie came out now I'd have zero interest in it.
Oh, totally. But look at the quality of nerd posting in this thread. No ones saying I say the 80s because my mind was blown as a kid, everyone is talking about originality of story, writing, direction, cultural impact, etc, etc... film school kind of discussions. No one is clinging to childhood favorites without having at least five reasons beyond it was cool when I was 8 for making the argument.
