It was a different time. A time when your mom had to drop you off at the theater. Age 13 is a pivotal year for any Letterboxder. Your mind is being molded by cinema at an increasingly rapid pace. You're an open book with wide-eyed wonder. 2002 was my 13th year and there were some legendary watches. The top 3 cinematic experiences of the year had to be
1. Minority Report
2. The Two Towers
Runner-up: The Ring. Innocent time.
And there were some legendary WTF watches. I hardly even remember the three-film knockout run of K-19, Pluto Nash and The Four Feathers, but I know they happened and I'm haunted by the faded memories. I even watched TWO Eddie Murphy bombs at age 13.
Also, proudest entry: Reign of Fire. That film's marketing was like a moth to a flame for me. I had to be there opening weekend.
