Great writing, great piece. I really enjoyed the personal reflections - I think you could've gone even deeper into more details and feelings, but there's a nice wrap up in the end, so I can't complain too much, haha.
I'm not as big of a fan of the movie as the rest of the world, but I've seen it countless times when I was a kid. It was constantly on TV, I think I had an overdose of it back then, so that might be the reason.
Such a strong kick off to Retro Rewind. It made me want to write one as well. I might do at some point ;)
