Putting a Movie Spin on Throwback Thursday.

Throwback Thursday Movie Edition

Nostalgia is pretty big nowadays. Remakes and reboots of all kinds coming out of the wood work. TV shows from the 80’s, 90’s, and 2000’s are coming back with an update. Also all over social media, you see the popular #tbt also known as throwback Thursday and #fbf also known as Flashback Friday. All of this has inspired me with an idea that maybe anyone who is reading can join in and do.

I’ve wanted to do this for a long time and i think now is a great time to do it. Ask yourself, “Do movies get better or worse with age?” For the next 27 weeks I will post a review of a movie that I watched in the past going all the way back to childhood and see if i still feel the same way about it now that I am older and more critical. This could a movie I loved so much it shaped me into the man I am today; I could re-watch a movie that was outer garbage and never watched it again; or it could be a movie that I only watched once and maybe need a reminder as to why I like it.

The reason why it’s 27 weeks is that I will be watching one movie per week ( I would watch more if I were getting paid for this) and the movie will be from #-Z. I encourage anyone who wants to relive the past with me post in the comments of my entries each week the movie you revisited, a couple of sentences what you remember liking or hating about the movie, and then share your views on it now and if it’s changed. My choices will probably reflect my individual taste or from my own private collection. Let’s see if time can change how we look at a movie and maybe something you adored or despised wasn’t like that at all. My entries will be under the link nostalgic > Double take in the top menu.

First entry will be next Thursday Aug. 25th # – 3 Ninjas

Join me in this journey moviegeeks.

  1. This is such a great idea. I always tell people that the movies I love the most are movies I’ve only seen once, that way they can’t be ruined for me. Though some say movies can, and do, get better with time so this is definitely something I might try. Time to revisit all those 90s classics ey? Looking forward to checking out your journey.
