Did you know it’s been 25 years since Aladdin came out? (Thanks, Emma Cox! – @scyian) It’s enough to make me feel old.
Lots of movies are like that–it feels like they came out only recently, but it’s been ten years or more.
It does suggest a way of dividing your life into eras: by the movies that came out over that period. That’s what I’m going to do.
Okay, here are the rules. I have to pick one movie (or occasionally a few) from each year of my life that I saw soon after it came out and that I loved.
I’ll start with The Little Mermaid, which is the first movie I remember watching at a cinema.
