The Year 1988

Top 10 From Back Then: The Movies Of 1988

Our country entered a state of renewal in 1988.  Weeks after NASA resumed exploration following the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger explosion, George Bush Sr. became President Of the United States, the first sitting V.P. to move directly into this position in over 150 years.  Severe drought caused $60 billion in damages across the country, 750,000 acres of Yellowstone National Park burning over the course of four months due to the brutal conditions.  The nation sought distraction from these disasters with the formation of World Championship Wrestling and the debut of the cult TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000.  1988 blessed us with the births of future Hollywood hotties Emma Stone and Vanessa Hudgens while taking from us legendary porn actor John Holmes and Anne "Ma Fratelli" Ramsey.  Tip-toe around those hypodermic needles washing onto the shore and into your local video store to check out these Top 10 From Back Then: The Movies Of 1988!
