    Yeah, we had a taped VHS copy too, lol. We were kinda poor so most of our movies were taped, and yeah, I tended to wear out the tapes that I loved.

    I think I just watched stuff way more passionately back then. Nowadays I'll watch a movie once, maybe a couple times if I really like it a lot. But back then my bothers and I probably watched our favorite movies like 50 times a year each. Some of those movies, I bet I could recreate the entire film shot-for-shot with all the dialogue intact and everything. I don't think any movie I watch these days will ever sink into my psyche as deeply as the movies I obsessed over back then. Kids are just way more hardcore about the things they love.

    Crap. Maybe it wasn’t due to the PP slides, but was that somebody had a better resume or more targeted education. With only 3 to 5 slides, maybe you gained better PP skills?

    Have you found another job, yet?

    I really hope that some of y'all see this. Perhaps I should make it into a thread.

    I was going to make a "general cinema talk" thread, but I fear that as soon as I do, someone will tell me that there is already such a thread.
    My favorite was The Journey of Natty Gann. An emotionally complex movie with adventure.

    OH MY GOD i just showed my wife that movie earlier this year (i feel like i told you about this already) and i made a huge deal about needing nestle crunch bars while we watched it...not remembering that you see david eat a nestle crunch exactly once for a few seconds. i somehow remembered it being a much bigger deal than it actually was. still love that movie, though. just...don't look up that actor or it'll make you real sad and uncomfortable.

    Naturally the first thing I did upon reading this was look up the actor. Pretty crazy that he grew up to be a bank robber. wtf. Color me surprised.

    Yup, apparently he tried to use a long wig and a bandanna as a disguise.

    i think it's been brought up in the horror thread, but the gate with stephen dorff is one i remember fondly.

    and the first two critters flicks. lots of stuff from usa network's UP all night. spookies, night of the creeps, etc.

    i was also OBSESSED with flight of the navigator.

    i saw The Gate on HBO late one night when i was home alone. i think i was like 10 or 11 and it scared the shit out of me. now it's just fun, but it still freaks me out when he gets the eye in his hand.

    At my grandparents house, we had this tv room and the two movies that we loved and watched every time we went there were La Bamba, and Stand By Me (which I was way too young for.)

    Hey, should we make a thread for this, or at least a "random movie talk" thread?
