Classic Films, Childhood Heroes Brought Back To Life, and the Most Quotable Movies | Best of HO Vol. 3
As we take the week off, here are three of our most popular topics from last year: Classic Films, Childhood Heroes Brought Back To Life, and the Most Quotable Movies. The HO will return with our 2020 Movie Release Extravaganza on January 15, 2020!
First up, from Episode 361: We discuss the concept of classic films and what defines them for us. We also debate what we miss about these films, and especially what we don’t.
Next, we head to Episode 363: We take a look at those moments when our own childhood heroes are sprung back to life. Not all of these resurgences went as smoothly as we would have hoped, yet that does not take away from the excitement we felt as we all approached opening day or the first time a new episode hit the airwaves. Our favorites, the ones that crushed our dreams, and maybe even one or two that had us questioning our own childhood memories.
Finally, we head to Episode 358: If you’re a fan of entertainment, then odds are you randomly drop movie or TV quotes as breadcrumbs to identify your fellow die-hards. “I’ll be back”, “Ouch”, “You can’t handle the truth!” – these are just a few of the quotes people use all the time, often without even realizing they’re doing it. For this section, we discuss why it is we do this practice of using established pop-culture language to handle the conversing for us, as well as what our favorite movie quotes are, as well as the movies we most often find ourselves referencing seemingly every day of our lives.
