I am a proud 80’s kid. I rocked my Jams and strutted the streets in my mismatched hightop Converse kicks. And of course I had to see every action movie to hit the theaters. Seriously, how cool was the 80’s? Well…today the dress code and those movies are beyond cheesy (unfortunately the current town that I live in *cough Portland Oregon* still thinks the 80’s is hip and has decided not to move on). David Sandberg obviously loves the 80’s, specifically the movies, and decided to create his own heavily-inspired 80’s action movie: Kung Fury.
I sat on writing a review for Kung Fury because I had no idea how to approach it–the reason being is that it’s so darn funny that even one sentence will spoil a moment that will literally have you laughing out loud. Because of this I’m going to be as vague as can be. Some keywords for you: Cop. Action. Explosions. Dinos. Nintendo PowerGlove. Time traveling. Or simply think about every cliché that you remember from your childhood (if you’re from my era) and it’s found here but somehow magnified beyond everything you could ever imagine. Seriously, David Sandberg created one of the best comedies I have ever seen.

The Bottom Line: This is not only one of the best short movies that you’ll have seen in recent years, it’s one of the best 80’s movies 😀
