the 80's by a LAND SLIDE.... Specifically 85-89. The early EARLY 90's(circa 90-93..The earlier the better) were absolutely fantastic as well, but that all ended after 94' The late 90's were just awful imo. And that's when the decline of magical awesome sauce gradually dwindled away into lifeless Bull shit for the masses.
It's mind boggling how different the world was in 90' Vs, lets say 99' The 80's were absolutely magical, boasting thee greatest horror movies, some of the best cartoons, movies in general, out of this world commecials(like the early 90's) LOVED the fashion, music, ect ect i could go ON and ON.
The nineties, because in that era never has humanity been close to sci-fi technology (cell phones, internet on a proper format,...). of course we are now far more advanced, but bear with me: some stuff we would see in action thriller films, and wish they were true, we had great hopes of reaching them very soon. It was the time we were expecting (with a great anticipation) the 21st century. Clothing style was cool yet not as crazy as before, cars were fast but more down to earth, and people still had a chill behavior with a bit of respect for other people.
