Feng Shui: The End of an Era

My best friend Mike has always said that the 80s in Hollywood really didn't end until Pulp Fiction came out in 1994. Since Feng Shui's 'Contemporary Era' is smack dab in 1996, I wanted to see if the hypothesis fit. After spending a lazy afternoon watching bad 80s and 90s action movie trailers with a back injury, I heartily concur.

Case in point:




To be fair, direct to video movies tend to be about 5-10 years behind the pop-cultural curve, so I can't exactly blame the Cannon films for being too 80s.

Note: these are all coming from the gigantic ActionPackedCinema YouTube channel, where you can find probably 500 more of these trailers.
