The grim-dark of the 1970s? I take it you weren't there.

...
Haha! My parents conceived me in the Summer of '79, baby!

But, I was actually making a hyberbolic reference to an earlier comment about how gritty and dark movies of the post-Vietnam era tended to be, which supposedly Star Wars broke the mold of. A sentiment I don't totally agree with...

Actually from what I can tell the '70s seemed like a pretty rocking good time. Sometimes I wish I was 10 or 15 years older so I could have experienced the decade first hand!

Take it from somebody whose parents conceived him in the summer 0f '69 (I take it you were born in April of 1980? If so, we're exactly ten years apart in age.), you missed some fun. Hell, I remember being seven years old and seeing the first run of Star Wars in a Drive-in!

For our younger posters, consult a history website for THAT reference.

But, in fairness, the 1980's were an interesting time to be a teenager.
