That’s So 80’s – Iron Eagle (1986)

80S-EAGLE-mainTHAT’S SO 80s! takes a nostalgic trip down VHS memory lane, remembering some of the cheesiest movies from one of the cheesiest decades.


Fellow movie connoisseur MOVIEROB joins forces with SLIP/THROUGH for a semi-regular column highlighting some of the best scenes (and fashion choices) of the era.

This edition of That’s so 80s gets its retro action flick on with hidden gem cult classic IRON EAGLE. Think of an 80s YA version of TOP GUN and you have a pretty good idea what’s in store. Our hero, raised on an airbase, flies off to rescue his dad behind enemy lines teaming up with a retired fighter pilot. Throw in a bucket of cliches, some totally 80s sidekicks, a prom, explosions, and jet fights, then you’ve got a taste of what’s in store with the first chapter of a VHS b-movie franchise.

Rob and Dan breakdown what they love about this retro gem, from the 80s fashion to the 80s sensibilities.
