I Liked That? – He Said, She Said

We all have movies that we watched as kids that we remembering loving back then. A lot of those movies we haven’t seen in decades, even though we still talk about how great they were. On “I Liked That?,” we revisit these movies to see how well they hold up. He Said, She Said came out in 1991, and I remember having a copy of it that I taped off HBO. I have literally no idea how this movie appealed to me enough to record a copy of it. It’s dull. So, so, so dull. Sure, there are some boobs,...

I Liked That? – School Ties

We all have movies that we watched as kids that we remembering loving back then. A lot of those movies we haven’t seen in decades, even though we still talk about how great they were. On “I Liked That?,” we revisit these movies to see how well they hold up. Maybe you’re going through football withdrawals now that the Super Bowl is over. Maybe you boycotted the NFL and kind of miss it. Either way, I watched another football movie: School Ties from 1992. School Ties will always hold a special place for me. It’s one of very few movies that...

I Liked That? – Lucas

We all have movies that we watched as kids that we remembering loving back then. A lot of those movies we haven’t seen in decades, even though we still talk about how great they were. On “I Liked That?,” we revisit these movies to see how well they hold up. With college football’s bowl season and the NFL playoffs in full swing, I thought I’d revisit one of my favorite football movies of all time: 1986’s Lucas starring Corey Haim and a soon to be all-star cast including Winona Ryder, Charlie Sheen, Jeremy Piven, and Courtney Thorne-Smith. It also includes Kerri...

The Wonder Years – “The Heart of Darkness”

Even though this is only the 7th episode of The Wonder Years, it’s the second season premier. (The first season was a six episode mid-season replacement.) We’re still in 7th grade and you won’t really notice any big change between season 1 and 2. Maybe the only difference is the obnoxious dream sequences have evolved a bit. This episode has a nightmare that pops in every so often. In it, Kevin is walking through a cave, seemingly lost, and he’ll either be carrying Paul or Winnie until he ends up in a classroom being laughed at. In the real world,...

The Wonder Years – "Dance With Me"

This was the very first episode of The Wonder Years I ever saw, so it’s very special to me. When commercials for the series started airing, I had no interest in it. Even though Kevin Arnold was my exact age, it just seemed like something made for adults. But then my friend’s older, pretty sister told me I should watch it, and if there’s one thing I’ve always done and that’s take the advice of older, pretty girls. Kevin’s relationship with Lisa Berlini is blossoming ever since their phone call. They’re joking around together in homeroom when a school dance...

The Wonder Years – "The Phone Call"

“The Phone Call” is my first favorite episode of The Wonder Years. Kevin starts the episode finally (“finally”) over Winnie Cooper. The main reason is that he’s discovered Lisa Berlini, and honestly, who can blame him? He describes her as “The kind of girl you dream about but would never know your name.” Here’s what I feel is going to be a recurring theme for me while rewatching the show: Since we’re looking at all the love interests through Kevin’s eyes at that age, we’re looking at 12 year old girls as desirable partners. I have been reassured that it’s ok...
