Saturday Movie Watching: Nostalgic Movies of Good Old Days


Are you in the mood for the good old days? How about a marathon viewing of some great sentimental faves?

Sometimes, you just want to retreat back into childhood. You want those feel-good sensations of a summer spent with your buddies on crazy adventures. There are some great sentimental films that can give you that feeling - some take place in the good old days but were filmed recently and others were from our childhood era.

I'd highly suggest you set up a blanket fort with pillows, get some Whoppers and Milk Duds and find a favorite person or persons to tuck in with you and go back in the time machine to remember the magic. (Please remember that magic was in our minds as youths an it's still there now, just call on it!) 

- Set in our era but filmed more currently -

Stand By Me
Now and Then
Big Chill
My Girl
Apollo 13
Almost Famous
Back to the Future
The Goonies
Flight of the Navigator



- Made in our era -
