Stranger Things is one of those shows that I’m a huge fan of. After binge watching it, I was quick to have family come over weekly to watch it. They were easily just as hooked. Just about everything about it hit the right notes. The actors were engaging and the atmosphere and cinematography left you with a sense of unease that latched onto your attention.
I was a Batman fan as far back as I can remember. One of my earliest memories is playing with a toy Batmobile. The most rewatched movie for me was the Michael Keaton Batman movie when it was released on VHS. I was only four at the time, so this meant that I had to close my eyes during a particular scene where a mobster was burnt to a crisp. Oddly, I was allowed to look after the act, so I still saw the burnt corpse. My imagination filled in the blanks with something far more terrifying.
This is veering towards another story that I will have tell at another time.
I will admit that I have never seen The Room but I have seen different scenes from it. It’s bizarre and has bad acting but it made me laugh. Possibly for all the wrong reasons. And that’s the case for so many others. Apparently the behind the scenes for the film is just as strange, as told in a book by one of the stars in the film.
I spent the last few days ill and other night, in a haze of sickness and medicine, I was feeling nostalgic and browsed YouTube. There was one cartoon that I haven’t thought about for years and I had a strong urge to watch it. I put on the opening to Muppet Babies and I was instantly submerged in my childhood. Somehow, I remembered the lyrics. I sang it a lot when I was four or five.
