Informal Education

Today was a long drive down to Myrtle Beach for my cousin’s wedding. 7 hours on the road gives one plenty of time to talk and think. One thing that got into my head (after hearing ‘Pinball Wizard’ on the radio) was coming up with a list of media items that I would need to make sure my children were aware of before they left my care. Some of these will have to wait until they are 17 or 18.

  • The Wizard of Oz
  • Back to the Future
  • Lord of the Rings
  • Star Wars
  • Groundhog Day
  • Clue
  • The Wall
  • Tommy
  • Rocky Horror Picture Show
  • Jesus Christ Superstar
  • Barbarella
  • South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut
  • Fight Club
  • Heavy Metal
  • Big Trouble in Little China
  • Earth Girls are Easy
  • Donnie Darko
  • Galaxy Quest
  • Labyrinth
  • The Princess Bride (My Oldest loved it)
  • Mannequin

There are probably some others. I’m going to have to put in some time
