That was a movie?



They filmed the movie to promote the album. The soundtrack was #1 on the Billboards for 24 straight weeks. It's what launched Prince to super-stardom.

Oh, didn't know about it. I only knew the song.

Purple Rain was the album of the year and sold more than 25 million copies in the last 35 years. The accompanying (and pretty good) movie made 70 million dollars on a budget of 7 million. Prince won an Oscar for the Purple Rain OST.

New TV shows in 1984: Miami Vice, The Bill Cosby Show, Airwolf (Jan-Michael Vincent died just 10 days ago), Riptide, Murder She Wrote, Highway to Heaven.



Revenge of the Nerds is a classic!
Neverending Story is pure magic!
Police Academy, Red Dawn, The Last Starfighter, Dune, Breakin', Starman, all were huge parts of my childhood.

1984 was pure eighties bliss. Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Comedy had some of their greatest moments.



Making me feel old, just turn 30 myself.



Beverly Hills Cop. What an intro that movie had! I think as a kid, the Detroit Police Chief was what I thought was the most funny. It's still maybe the movie I've watched the most in my life.

One of my favorite albums of all time and considering the fact that pretty much the entire casts except for a couple of people never acted in a movie before the movie is actually pretty good also.
