Plans for the weekend anyone? If you don’t have a plan and you’re looking for a trip down memory lane there really is only one thing for you to do – go and watch Jurassic Park… in IMAX 3D! It was released today (UK) and is available at certain Odeon cinemas around the country. The film in its original form is great and from the reviews it seem as though the 3D experience won’t disappoint the loyal fans. So run over to your closest participating Odeon like you’ve got a T-Rex on your tail and enjoy Steven Spielberg’s classic in a whole new dimension! I’m certainly going to!

I was going to write about the film, but since I haven’t seen the 3D yet I think I will save that for a review! So instead I thought for this blog post that I would take a trip down memory lane, to all the things that make me feel nostalgic – for that simpler time when I was a mere babe running around without a mobile phone or tablet PC. Get ready for a ride guys…

  • X-Men (1992) and Spiderman (1994): Seriously, how could you not love these two cartoons? Just the intro themes were enough get me hyper and thinking I was the next Storm or that I could easily kick Spiderman’s butt in a fight (I’m not saying I was the most intelligent kid).
  • The Animals of Farthing Wood (1993): The cartoon series about animals being forced out of their homes by deforestation – talk about making a cartoon heavy with meaning!
  • Home Alone (1990): What Christmas would be complete without Home Alone? Back when Macaulay Culkin was just a cute little kid, let’s try and remember him that way.
  • Toy Story (1995): The amazing, the charming, the wonderfully funny Toy Story is in a league of its own – truly one of the best family films to ever be made. Is it really up for debate? I thought not.
  • Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988): This film is pretty much just great, you don’t get much better than a combination of your favourite classic cartoons mixed in with reality – who wouldn’t want to live in Toontown?
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993): Since when does Tim Burton disappoint? Okay sometimes he does, but definitely not with this great movie – all hail the Pumpkin King!

There are so many different films and series’ I can put in here but I thought if I kept going that I probably would never stop, so maybe instead you guys can save me and let me know some of your childhood favourites!
