I am not sure if Summer of 84 was meant to come out during the heat of Stranger Things fervor, but it definitely did. One of the first scenes is the movie is of a gang of kids riding around a small neighborhood on their bikes. Wish the movie could have been something more than it was, but not bad overall.

  • I really liked the ending to Summer of 84. It isn’t all sunshine and rainbows.
  • The only portion of this movie when it really dragged was in the middle, when things got a little formulaic.
  • If you like Stranger Things, you will like Summer Of 84. I consider this movie on par with the worst season of Stranger Things, AKA season two.
