A trip down movie memory lane
Tonight has been like taking a trip down memory lane, kinda. I've wanted to re-watch the two Young Guns films from 1988 and 1990. I've not seen either of them for at least 20 years, and boy does it make me feel ancient to think about how old they are!
Sometimes when you watch things you used to enjoy many years ago, it can be quite a cringe-fest. More often than not, your memory of something ends up being way better than the actual thing itself. Not so in this case. I didn't remember much of the plot at all so it was like seeing the film for the first time again. And it still holds up! I can't wait to see the sequel tomorrow, I hope that the experience with that one will be similar.
As with many things these days, newer doesn't have to mean better. Just look at all the bad remakes and reboots of movies and TV series.
