10 thoughts on “Cult Classic Childhood

  1. Kim, great minds think alike! first of all, I completely remember the days of VCR recording – movie buff that i was (and am) I remember through the years watching my vcr collection grow and grow, as we watched stuff, we’d cross out, rewrite new movie in sharpie, record another, over and over. Such fond memories of those days. Still to this day, there are so many movies i watch on repeat, (even if it’s not on a vcr anymore) – the funniest mention being that it’s a common occurrence in my house for this to be heard when someone other than me reviews our DVR queue, “Not Splash again!”… hahaha. Thanks so much for sharing, xx Bee

  2. Hey Kimberly! I leave for five months and everyone has revamped their blogs, lol! But seriously, love how it looks! I liked so many movies when I was younger, it’s hard to pick one, so I’ll reflect on “The Wiz” since you’ve already done it, lol! I was a sucker for it…I was so afraid of those darn monkeys, but I kept coming back for more, lol! And I never looked at the momma from “What’s Happening” the same ever again! Everytime I saw her after the movie, she was no longer this sweet loveable mom…I couldn’t get past her evilness, lol! As far as books…I think I read the “Encyclopedia Brown” series over a hundred times.:-)

    1. It was years before I realized that was the momma from What’s Happening. Encyclopedia Brown! I was thinking about those books the other day. I think I read all of that series as a kid. I need to see if the library has them. That would be perfect for my son. I see you have a new post. Gonna go over and check it out. Thanks, Michell!

  3. Love your selections. Poltergist was soooo scary back then, but I always thought it could happen!! Two movies I watch again and again or I am Legend and The Devil Wears Prada!

    1. That’s no surprise that you watch The Devil Wears Prada often. It is a good movie. Great fashion tips. Thanks Robin!

  4. I have to admit that whatever you were saying about Poltergeist I had skip. I’ll come back and read it in the daytime. I never saw The Legend of Billie Jean. Now The Wiz we can talk about! Mom and I had a Mommy and Me date to go see that one. Like you I learned more about the background of the movie when I got older and then seeing Diana Ross play the part when Stephanie Mills should have had the role made me look at the movie differently. I liked it much better when I was younger. One of my favorite songs from the movie to this day is Don’t Nobody Bring Me No Bad News. That wicked witch was BAD and I mean that in a good way 😉

    1. Yeah, I should have read this before I replied to your tweet about the CD. Miss Ross had that “in” with Berry Gordy. It was bye bye, Stephanie.
