At today’s group we looked at Movies and TV shows and what they mean to us. The exercise we did was similar to the music one we did a few weeks ago. We asked members what movies they were watching at different stages in their lives.
The stages are; 10 years of age, 15 years of age and 20 years of age. Below are the things chosen;
10 Years old:
- Watership Down & Why don’t you?
- Jaws & Starsky and Hutch
- Ghostbusters & TISWAS
- To Kill a Mockingbird & Z Cars
- Batteries Not Included & Cheggers Plays Pop
15 Years of old:
- Psycho & Tales of The Unexpected
- Quadrophenia & The Tube
- Valley of The Dolls & Monthy Python
- Groundhog Day & Noel’s House Party
20 Years old:
- Blade & Taggart
- Alien & Friends
- Pulp Fiction & Shooting Stars
- The American Friend
- Trainspotting & TFI Friday
Like the music exercise, it was really interesting to hear the stories of what was going on for group members at the different stages. Quite a few members yearned for the old-fashioned ‘theatre’ like style cinemas as opposed to the present day multiplexes we now have. Being able to watch this media provided good escapism for people while growing up. They were able to look back fondly at them and see how they provided a good sense of escapism at a time when life may not have been particularly easy. Below are members favourite movies.
