There are many classic movies that I still love today that I could have talked about with this topic but why waste the opportunity to talk about
That’s right, Space Jam. This movie was a force when I was a kid, it was such a big deal and I didn’t, and still don’t, give a shit about basketball. I did of course know who Michael Jordan was. Come to think of it I knew all the players featured in the movie. My main thing though was it was about Looney Tunes movie. I couldn’t tell you how many times I watched this movie when I was a kid, it was an every day event at one point there. I did revisit this movie a few years back and while I did enjoy joy it for nostalgic reasons, it didn’t hold up as well as the likes of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? which is obviously the much better movie. The integration of animation and live action was and still is really impressive though and I will say this about Michael Jordans performance, I’ve seen athletes do worse. All in all this was a really fun movie that was a big part of my childhood but has lost some of its magic on me as an adult.
What’s a big time movie from your childhood? Was Space Jam in there for you? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading and check in tomorrow for day 12: My favorite animated movie. Until next time, take it easy.
