Sunday Morning on Film – Should Everything Old Be New Again?
I have been bombarded by things nostalgic this week.
It began last Sunday, during the Super Bowl (which I watched with an astounding 111 million of my fellow Americans), where many of the commercials had an undeniable ‘80s vibe, particularly the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off-inspired commercial for Honda, and the vampire-themed Audi commercial featuring the 1984 song “The Killing Moon” by Echo and the Bunnymen.
The time-travel didn’t end there. Next, I saw the Star Wars Episode I 3-D trailer. Sure, that film is a flashback to 1999, but the newest trailer actually opens with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on Tatooine, with that gorgeous two-sun sky in the distance, as seen in Star Wars Episode IV (or, as we called it in 1977, Star Wars).
