For some reason I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how awesome things were when I was a kid. Sometimes all this technology, high-tech, crazy stuff just feels like too much. Or at least it feels like too much for my kid.
When it comes to movies, modern technology floors me. Modern story lines floor me. Modern graphics floor me.
And I won’t lie. Sometimes I really miss the simplicity that children’s blockbusters were twenty or thirty years ago.
So, I made a list of the ten movies I wish my kid would have seen in the theater. Back when such movies, artwork, and effects would still have been as awesome to him.
Sadly, I’ve tried showing some of these movies to my kid on our smaller-than-life television. They just aren’t as action-packed, graphically crammed, and attention-grabbing as what he’s used to. And I guess that’s just how technology goes.
