Today I woke up nostalgic. I was thinking of the movies that really love when I was a kid (and I watch it for the first time) and I realize that those movies are still movies that I love.
Those movies are forever no matter the age or time. No matter how many times I watch them, always had and impact on me.

This is my list (in not particular order):

Star Wars
E.T.
Back to the Future
Who framed Roger Rabbit?
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Gremlins
Labyrinth
Big
Close enconters of the third kind
Superman (I can go on...)

....and then I grown up.

There are a lot of them!

Treasure Planet
Snow White
The Adventures of Scamper the Penguin
The Dark Knight (it did come out a month before I turned 14. So it's fair enough to count it.)
Batman Begins

Let's just say, a lot of the old Disney movies + tons more!

David emerges from the store slowly. He braces himself against a parked car and then keeps on walking in a nightmarish daze.

WE PULL BACK as David blends in with dozens and dozens of ordinary people, walking on an ordinary street, in an ordinary city.
