After Seeing Jen's post I feel rather envious of her film buff status and quite shameful of the fact that I am not similarly educated (or indeed that passionate) about films old & new.
The thing is that I don't really watch films like other people do, most of the time I dig into my collection of personal and sometimes embarrassing movie classics and play whatever strikes my fancy while I busy myself with something else. When I was young I used to sit at the coffee table in our lounge and draw all day while Robin Hood or the Three Amigos played in the background. Today nothing has changed - just replace drawing with blogging or working and perhaps replace Robin Hood with the five hour bbc version of Pride & Prejudice.
One of the movies I used to watch on repeat as a kid was Now and Then - which I absolutely loved since I was same age as the characters when it was released, and it spoke to me about everything you go through as a twelve year old girl. The fact that it is set in the summer of 1970 is also a visual perk. Plus Devon Sawa was such a dreamboat, guys.
The only thing that always bugged be about Now and Then though ... Roberta /Christina Ricci turns into Rosie O'Donnell? Please.
