Movies That Defined My Childhood

Movies That Defined My Childhood by Jonathan C.

When I think about growing up in the ‘80s and ’90s, these are the movies I think about. My mother was (and is) employed by HBO, so we had all the HBO channels years before it was typical to have more than one. So, I watched a lot of flicks. The movies in this list are ones I typically watched over and over, some as many as 50 to 60 times. Maybe more. In many of them, I’ve memorized nearly every frame, every shot. It’s pathetic.
