I’m a sucker for predictable 1980 plotlines. Or better yet, movies that are just extremely easy to follow. I still enjoy clever and smart films, but I really like the numerous simple ones that the 1980’s served up.
Enter the above clip from one of my favorite movies, Victory. It’s cheesy, has horrible acting, and terrible lines, but I love it. The movie is about a P.O.W. allied soccer team that plays against the German National Team in a “friendly” propaganda match during World War II. The clip shows the last 14 minutes when the allied team unexpectedly “wins” the match and escapes to freedom.
Another gem from the 1980’s: Karate Kid II. Great movie! What crappy movies do you like?
