Growing up in a time of video tapes supplied by the video man, who would call on a Friday evening in this hatch back estate with videos piled high to the roof of the car. Fridays were the highlight of my and so many others, because of course school was out but most importantly the video man would be calling.
So for those of you that have never experienced the video man and don’t have a clue, the video man would be the “Just Eat” to the “blockbusters” if you like.
The rental service that he offered was 5 for £1.00 a pound was a lot then, we are talking about, when the bus fares were 12p to get on unlike the the £2.00 it is now. Omg am I really saying this, how old am I?
I don’t know about you, but I had these films that I would watch on repeat until I found another that just clicked. Here are a few of mine and why!.
Baby and Jonny
What a film? How many of you wanted to be Baby? I did I remember practicing the dance at the end. Then they made Dirty dancing 2 and it just wasn’t the same for me!
Stand by me…..
Ferris bueller’s day off
I don’t know about you, but I fell in love with how cool this kid was and I remember thinking what a cool way to pretend your sick, and he got the girl…. he was an all round pretty cool confident kid. Memories
