Awesome 80’s Action Tribute Video

We all know the 80’s will always be the greatest decade for action movies and I just found this rather awesome tribute video featuring footage from Die Hard, Aliens, Blade Runner, Cobra, The Running Man, RoboCop and many more.

It’s made me nostalgic for video stores like Blockbuster where I could go in and wander around the action section admiring the awesome covers. This is why I’ll never be a fan of Netflix and other online streaming sites, I like having the physical copy of the movie with the art and special features, etc.

Anyway enough rambling from me, enjoy a trip back to the 80’s.
