Welcome to “Flix of the 80’s”!

First of all, Happy New Year to everyone! Hope that you all have a Fantastic 2016!

But for me, January 1st is not just the celebration of a new year. It’s also the 1st year anniversary of “The Blog’s the Thing”! That’s right, it’s been a total of 365 days since this blog was introduced to the world with the purpose of documenting movies from or about the 1980’s, without a doubt my favourite decade of all time.

When I first started this blog, I had a vague idea of what to base it on, hence the generic title “The Blog’s the Thing”! However, I soon came to the conclusion that critiquing movies from the 80’s would make for a better topic. However, the original name was kept on nevertheless.

So, it’s for this reason that I have decided to rename the blog to “Flix of the 80’s”, as it will give newcomers to the site an idea of what to expect from it.

So I hope that you will enjoy the slight modifications to the blog. Same old address, same old reviews, brand new name. And there’ll be plenty more reviews to come. Please let me know if there’s any movies from the 1980’s which I haven’t covered yet, and I’ll base a review around it.

Peace out,




Brand New Year, Brand New Blog!

Hello Everyone, and Happy New Year!

What’s a New Year without a new blog, especially one that fills you in on various movies and books that I hold dear to my childhood!

I am a major bookworm and cinephile, so, with the help of WordPress’s Blogging 101 course, I aspire to talk with others regarding young adult novels, movies, and all things 80’s!

So if you love John Hughes movies, or simply love the eighties or books in general, then “The Blog’s the Thing”! offers a little something for everyone!

If you have any suggestions about what I should review, please comment!I look forward to hearing from you!
