The "films of my childhood" theme continues.
This one breaks from the previous two in being a film released before I was born.
I'm not entirely sure if I saw either Labyrinth or Willow at the theater. Maybe. I don't know. My parents took us to the movies often, sometimes every week, usually after a church service, on Sunday afternoons.
This one was definitely a home video watch. I was part of the generation that grew up with cable television and VHS and video stores. We were probably the early-middle of it. You guys a few years younger were probably the tail end of it.
As with most of these childhood picks, I don't have any first memory associated with this film. It feels like this film was just always there.
Eh, I can't concentrate to write this right now. Maybe I'll come back to it.
So, nothing at all written about the movie itself.
