Over the past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about my childhood. Why? Well, all the movies that I adored and watched over and over again keep seeming to pop up when I least expect it: The remake of Footloose recent release (no, I did not see it), rumors of remakes of other 80's films like The Breakfast Club, my Repo Man soundtrack post yesterday and many more. I suppose this is what happens when you hit your mid-life, you start recalling all the things that made you happy when you were a kid or teenager.
Another part of my past popped up as well: How I used to write letters to my friends. You know, pen pals. Remember that? For you youngins its what you do when you "chat" back and forth with someone via texting or Facebook BUT there is one big difference - it took days to receive the response from your pen pal. I loved writing letters - LOVED IT! It kept me in touch with the people I cared most about.
Now you are probably thinking, "What has this got to do with movies since this site is all about movies and this woman's obsession with them, huh?" I can answer that one, easily. Keep reading, people.
Sincerely, John Hughes
And, in case you were worried, I will post a movie review in the next day or two. Trust me.
