Blast From The Past: A New Blog Series
Sometimes I find it a little hard to believe that it’s 2017.
Maybe I find it difficult because I graduated from high school ten years ago, which is a weird thought. A lot of things have changed since then, and movies are no exception. I remember many of the movies released in 2007 so vividly, and it’s hard to believe that movies like No Country For Old Men, Atonement, and There Will Be Blood are now ten years old. I wasn’t as much of a cinephile then as I am now, but it still seems unreal that so much time has passed since watching these for the first time.
Of course, with that mindset, it’s even harder to believe that movies such as As Good As It Gets, Titanic, and Good Will Hunting are now twenty years old. Dirty Dancing, Fatal Attraction, and Moonstruck are all thirty years old now. I could continue, but I think we’re all getting the picture. There have been a number of great stories told through the years through the medium of film, and as the decades pass, some of those stories are easy to get lost in the fold.
So, with that in mind, we’ll be launching a new blog series called Blast From the Past. The plan is to revisit one film every Friday that is now hitting another decade milestone.
So, be on the lookout next week for a rundown of a popular film from 2007. In fact, please share with us some of your favorite movies from 2007, 1997, 1987 or so on. Maybe one of them will make an appearance on this new series.
