4. September 2016 at 18:20




Weiter geht es mit den kleinen Jahresrückblicken. Diesmal reisen wir zurück ins Jahr 1984. Ein Jahr, das durchaus den einen oder anderen Klassiker für sich verbuchen konnte. Ein Jahr, in dem Skynet einen T-8oo in die Vergangenheit schickte, in dem ein Mogwai eine Kleinstadt durcheinander brachte und in dem der Marshmallow Man durch New York stampfte. Ein Jahr, in dem ein tot geglaubter Kindermörder Teenager in ihren Träumen heimsuchte, in dem der Kampf um den Wüstenplaneten entbrannte, Strassen in Flammen standen und Repo Men ihrem nicht immer einfachen Job nachgingen…
