Is it me, or does this week’s theme feel like a deja vu? When last week we touched upon our childhood favourites, this Thursday Movie Picks is all about nostalgia. For me, these two are very similar but I am going to spin this week’s theme to my favour. Here are three movies, featuring young people as leads, that make me feel nostalgic about my own youth!
For my first recommendation, I’m going with something sarcastic and ironic. Though my teenage years have nothing to do with a pregnancy, the very unique and interesting leading character feels right up my alley. Was I weird? Yes. Am I still weird? Probably. So watching Juno always makes me feel nostalgic.
The reason I picked this movie is because it has a very realistic plot. Or at least that’s how I remember it. I might have not paid enough attention because Dylan O’Brien was playing the lead. O’Brien by the way is my nostalgia element with this recommendation, as he always brings back memories of my later teenage years. Ah, who am I kidding, I was practically an adult by then but who’s to say I still didn’t hang out with the youths?!
In high school, I went to two bus trips that took me to many places in Europe. I’m pretty sure I’ve driven through most of the European countries (including Poland, where I saw a car burning on the side of the road) but most of it feels like a blur. So does Eurotrip, but only in the grand sense of the movie. I do have flashbacks to that train scene and that alone is worth it! And yes, it does spark up some nostalgia with the whole traveling thing happening.
