With so much time on our hands now, and being physically removed from most of civilisation, I thought it beneficial that we should still connect… we should still talk.
Insert, Friday night conversations.
Let’s have a chat about a different, totally random thing every Friday night. (Totally open to suggestions for each Friday too).
Tonight’s theme… “what movie scarred you as a child?”
How the hell did I come up with this topic you might ask? Well on cold and windy nights like tonight, we end up indulging in a movie on telly more often than not… and Hubbie just happens to be thoroughly engaged with Rambo II, right now as we speak…
Every time I say something, he’s like “hold on…”
And I am just holding on to my every thought, like ALL NIGHT.
Seeing Rambo trawl through jungles, get electrocuted, and then shoot automatics in revenge, reminds me of all those 80s movies we watched growing up, along with other chiselled six-pack ab legends like Arnie, and then suddenly…
Red Sonja flashed before me in a horribly bittersweet way.
Because sure, it was from my childhood and I have great memories growing up… but my Dad had taped it on VHS, off the TV! Yes, back in those days. I was about baby girl’s age, 6 or so, and I saw these horrific things unfold, like a woman being thrown down a well and squashed to death (or that’s how it appeared to me anyway) and though I was petrified I still continued to watch it, over and over and over again.
Why was I allowed to even watch it anyway??? (80s babies!)
I wouldn’t even know what the story is about. All I remember is that Arnold Schwarzenegger was in it, and I didn’t even realise ’til this moment that Brigitte Nielsen was in the starring role.
That is my story. So tell me, what childhood movie scarred you in a really horrible, funny or weird way???
