Imagine for a moment that the Internet does not exist. No removable drives with a terabyte of memory, which stores your entire collection of films and TV shows. No flash drives with which you can transfer the desired movie from one computer to another in a couple of minutes. And computers, in principle, also do not exist. Cinemas are a rarity, and even then they drive second-rate domestic films. Was it scary? Although those who grew up in the eighties and nineties, our imagination was supposed to cause nostalgia. Remember the videos and the stack of video cassettes in the closet? Remember how they waited on TV for the desired movie and dubbed it onto a videotape, erasing the previous movie? Recorded as is, with five-minute advertising. Oh, there was an interesting time. This is probably why people appreciated films so much. They were looking for exactly what they want to see. And having found it, they carefully kept their favorite movie on a video cassette, reviewing it in the evenings by the whole family. Our selection today is dedicated to those times. We made a list of 7 films that many often watched on videotapes. Watch and share your favorite films of those years in the comments.
