So how did I kickstart my 2017 movie viewing slate? With a movie from 1985, and one that I was a bit worried on whether I would still like it or not (I think I re-watched it a few years ago, to mixed feelings). This time, I was watching it with my wife (her first time), and we both had a really great time with it. We both commented on how movies these days just don’t feel like that anymore, with dumb kids doing fun stuff, and going on adventures. Sure, it’s partly nostalgia speaking, but there really is something about movies of this era (80s) that feel a bit more innocent and half-baked, and I kinda love them for it. Since I’ve finished my Bond movie watching marathon, I think my next marathon is going to be re-visiting movies of 1985 for a while.
