As some of you already know, I’m planning a special event for this summer. Starting first week of June, with two or three installments a month, I’m going to review some of the movies that made the summer of 1993 special for me. Why 1993? Well, that’s a pretty easy question to answer. I was born in the spring of 1983, so by the time summer of -93 rolled in, I was 10 years old and that’s when I really started to appreciate movies as more than just the spectacle that they are.
Some of these movies may not have held up as great over time, some of them may be absolute crap, and some of them may even be better now, as I’m older and have a completely different way of viewing the world.
These movies I will review are solely based on what I watched that summer, and I know that we got a lot of great films that year, like Jurassic Park, Mrs. Doubtfire or Tombstone, but they were all released after the summer has come and gone so they’re not eligible. We also had great movies like Philadelphia and Falling Down, but those weren’t movies I found interesting at all at that time. Let’s just say that they were too mature for me at that age, so I didn’t see them until years later. Do you see a pattern here? You understand my way of seeing these movies eligibility? Great.
Anyway, I just wanted to drop this little text here for you, like a more official thing than just a tweet, but hey… What’ya say we go watch a movie? Okay, will do!
