As a kid I was spoiled. I’ll admit it. During family vacations, before having an overhead TV and DVD player in your family car was mainstream, my dad had jerry-rigged a portable TV and VCR that allowed me to while away the long hours on car rides. During these trips, I had my go-to movies. Space was limited and the bulky VHS – large cassettes with wound up tape that played recorded images and sound – packaging forced me to have a limited range of options. With the need to be overly selective, I limited myself to a seven movie rotation. These films were my favorites and to this day I remember them fondly. That is not to say that they are fantastic, award-winning masterpieces, but rather films that somehow managed to capture the imagination of a young boy.
This month at We Bought a Blog we are celebrating these films of our youth, the movies we grew up with and left an impact on us. Join us as we take a step back in time to a period of juice boxes, clamshell packaging, and boxes of Buncha Crunch and Slim Jims.
