I am the type of person who rents a redbox and forgets to return it for several days and the $1.50 movie ends up costing me more like $10.00 with all the additional days. About a month ago I decided that buying a few $5.00 movies on Amazon would actually end up saving me some money. While I was looking through the movie titles I came across some of my old favorites from my childhood. Here is what I ended up buying:
I actually found the time to watch them all this past week. Each of them were as great as I remembered. It was crazy how I could actually picture myself sitting in the downstairs of my parents house with my brother and sisters watching these on the disney channel. I don’t know how many times I watch Flight of the Navigator. The little dancing guy is still my favorite. I was actually afraid of the Last Star Fighter as a kid, my brother would make me watch it. I finally warmed up to it after several movie nights with him. I am actually considering mailing it to him for Father’s day so he can live his childhood all over again as well. I don’t know that I will ever get over “Harry” eating the pet goldfish. I have cringed every time and still did this weekend. I loved the nostalgia that all these movies brought. I also loved that they all had feel good endings. Why don’t they make movies like that anymore?
