Jean and I watch a lot of movies – in fact it is one of our favourite pastimes. Perhaps this is because I spent a good portion of my childhood between the two video rental shops my dad owned when I was in primary school. Afternoons for me consisted of hanging out with his 20-something employees after school, watching Chocolat, Almost Famous and Silence of the Lambs (they really had no idea what would be appropriate for a 10 year old). It is no surprise then that my brother is currently studying to be a film-maker, or that the words “Be Kind Rewind” send a shiver of nostalgia down my spine every time.
Turns out a childhood spent watching movies leads to adulthood spent watching movies. Who knew? So, I thought I would start a little series in which I talk about the movies, good and bad, Jean and I watch every week – and get something besides square eyes out of it. PS. I’ve linked the trailer for each movie in their respective titles. Happy watching!
