The decade of the 1980s tended to consolidate the gains made in the seventies rather than to initiate any new trends. Designed and packaged for mass audience appeal, few 80s films became what could be called 'classics'. The era was characterized by the introduction of 'high-concept' films - with cinematic plots that could be easily characterized by one or two sentences (25 words or less) - and therefore easily marketable and understandable. The 80s also were the decade in which the sequel-mania really took off, which often resulted in hastily-made, inferior knockoffs made by lesser film-makers.
