Reminiscence Part 2

Oh I have loads to talk about of things, movies and shows I used to love. But hey, this is my blog, I’ll talk about whatever I want to, lol.


Little girls nowadays play with babydolls but I was addicted to movies and video games and music. I remember when in 1995, across my house, they finished new shoplots and one store opened up – a movie rental store. So I would go almost daily to rent movies. There are some movies that I’m so addicted with that I would go and rent a few times… one of the movies is NOW & THEN.

They don’t make quality movies for kids anymore these days. Certainly I think late 80s and 90s is the best decade to be growing up with. I would never trade it with anything else. I’d gladly live through it again. Even though there was no cable tv back then, I had fun. Now this movie.. it’s about friendship. I had a few good friends at that time. Best of friends. You see big names to the adults in this movie like Rosie O’Donnell, Rita Wilson, Demi Moore  & Melanie Griffith. And to young girls, Christina Ricci, Thora Birch, Ashley Ashton-Moore (Ashley Rogers) and Gaby Hoffman. These are the girls that I always dreamed to be lol. Of course not forgetting, Devon Sawa! The hottie of the 90s.

As I’ve said, the movie is about friendship. It’s set in the 1960s I think about 4 best friends who has problems of their own and characteristics such as Christina’s character Roberta is a tomboy but when she met Devon Sawa, she fell in love and changed. They have a kissing scene in this, and another one in Casper. Thora’s character Teenie is always on about her appearance especially boobs. The rest.. well you go and see the movie yourself. lol.

The soundtrack was good (I owned it), story was good, cast was good… I missed this movie. I almost bought it from Amazon but decided to wait a bit. I will someday. All for one, and one for all.

I’ll end this post with a fan music video from the movie 🙂
