* ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' (made in 2009, the bulk of the movie takes place in 1985 or the very least 1986, but given the nature of what happened to Logan's memories, it is unsure when it took place. TheOtherWiki states Stryker met Logan and Victor in 1975 placing the majority of the movie in 1981. Regardless, it certainly doesn't capture the look or the feel of the time.)

On the homefront, the 1980s produced a rash of pop-cultural icons that today are looked upon, at worst, with AffectionateParody, and at best, as the national ideal. The conservative political culture of the era meant two rather contradictory things for the production of pop-culture; on the one hand, the surge of private enterprise together with new media technologies allowed corporations such as Hasbro an unprecedented ability to build [[MerchandiseDriven massive franchises]] around their products, typically with a TV show and accompanying toys, but on the other MoralGuardian complaints would challenge the ethics of making a show that was "essentially one large commercial." The result was the rather spoof-worthy AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle segment common to many mass franchise shows, shoving an {{Anvilicious}} moral into the action. Fortunately, these were conveniently located after the actual plot, so kids could just turn it off at that point and run down to buy the toys. Besides, the segments [[SoBadItsGood make]] [[MemeticMutation great]] [[YouTubePoop joke]] fodder.
