I had a major nostalgia moment today. I was flipping through the channels, trying to find something to watch and stopped on ABC Family, seeing that D2: The Mighty Ducks was on. I flipped out. Mighty Ducks have always been one of my favorite movies (also why it's one of my favorite hockey teams) and the nostalgia hit me hard when I watched it. There were so many aspects of it that I hadn't realized until now are incredibly cheesy but that's something I like about it.
How many movies now have the message that if you work hard enough, trust your friends, and prove that anything is possible? Not many. All you see now is movies based off books, romantic movies that are so cheesy and predictable it's boring, and a bunch of action/thriller films. (I'm not knocking the action/thriller films, they're actually my favorite kind to watch). But seeing the movies I loved as a kid over again as an adult it, once again, really shows how much time has passed and how much technology has changed.
It really hit home, especially considering how I needed to get to 'calculator' on my work computer and had to click start and go through all of the sub-folders to get to it, while on my computer I just push one button and click once. But then I also see how bad it can be, especially considering the fact that it's so cheesy and there are some things I thought was so cool before which is actually obviously fake now.
But it brings me to the thought, what is it like to have your script idea get turned into a movie. I know it's a greuling process, as one of my classes have told me, but knowing that your hard work gets turned into something that's put up on the big screen (or put straight to DVD/Blu-Ray), seeing what you created from scratch and seeing it all come to fruition from casting to it being filmed. I want to be able to do that at some point, to sell a script of a movie or TV show, but I ever realized what it took to get there until after taking some film classes.
It's still something that I'd like to accomplish at some point in my life so, that officially goes on my bucket list!!
Enjoy your warm weather, everyone!
