Today’s Resolution: Watch a Movie From Your Childhood

One thing I miss from my childhood was heading to the local drive-in theater to watch a bunch of kick-butt 80’s movies all in a row. Unfortunately, I have it on good authority that Howard the Duck just isn’t as good as we all thought it was back in 1986. Still… it was still pretty rad, right? That chick from Caroline in the City was all “…oh Duckie…” and Howard was all, “…on my planet, we never say die, we say… NOT MY SHORTS!”

Good laughs all around.

So today your goal is to catch up on an old flick. You might be able to find it online using Netflix (they have a 1-month free trial) or Hulu, or even looking in the catalog of On-Demand movies that comes with your cable package. And then there’s always your local RedBox or Video Store.

When I was a kid I was obsessed with The Goonies, An American Tale, Fuzz Bucket, The Quest, My Girl, and Howard the Duck, just to name a few. Oddly enough, I was even so enthralled by Stephen King’s IT so much that I tried to dictate the entire 3-hour movie once entirely from memory. Patrick’s faves were The Goonies, Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Home Alone, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and The Toy. So needless to say, it should be a good, fun, nostalgic day!
