Oh thank god! For one minute I thought you was gonna say there’s gonna be a butchering remake totally ruining the charm of the original.Is on channel 4's online thingy at the moment if anyone fancies some 80's nostalgia, gonna stick it on tomorrow afternoon.
Not old, just a bit balmyI watched this a couple of years ago. It wasn’t the same watching it as an adult in the 21st century. It’s basically a story about an eccentric alien abducting a young boy, much to the dismay of his family. It’s the McCann story on mushrooms.
I was going to say ‘Mac and Me’ was a much more wholesome story, but on reflection it is just a sci-fi twist on the discrimination faced by refugees.
I think I’m old now.
Possibly. I guess what I was trying to say in a rather perverse and hyperbolic manner is ‘never meet your heroes’. When I watch a lot of these movies as an adult (including Flight of the Navigator) it tainted the fond memories I had of them. It sounds like it’s not the same for everyone but, with hindsight, I valued the fond memories more than a recent viewing.Not old, just a bit balmy
Agreed.The 80’s were simply amazing for child/teen films.
