What would we do without movies? Go outside? Get some fresh air? Nahhhhhh, we’re good thanks. Films make the world go around, and we’re pretty sure that’s a scientific fact. Sure, scientists and astronomers alike might say that gravitational pull and other sciencey things help this ol’ floating planet to go around, but we don’t buy it. We reckon it’s the bright lights of Hollywood that keep us all going, and keep us as happy as Larry. Incidentally, Larry also really loves movies.
Of course, movies have been around for a while now. They’ve come on leaps and bounds since the days of black and white television and stock animation, and we now have the likes of 3D imaging and special effects to take our favorite stories from zero to one hundred reaaaaaal quick. Thanks to these new developments, some pretty awesome actors and actresses, and filmmakers who certainly know their stuff, films have been able to make their way into everyday life and stake their place in society, In fact, we don’t see them going away anytime soon. However, do you ever think about what the movie world was like the year that you were born? Looking back at the release dates of some of our favorite movies can be a little depressing and we’d like time to slow down just a smidge, but it is pretty remarkable. Some of our fave movies were released so much earlier than we thought, and we were in our teens when our least favorite movie came out! But what about the exact year? Well, these are the movies that were popular the year you were born…
1965 – The Sound of Music
So, we have a really important question to ask you; what are the hills alive with? Of course, we all know the answer! The Sound of Music was released in 1965, but we can almost guarantee those who grew up in the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, and ‘00s also watched the Von Trapp family play goat puppets and yodel just like that Walmart kid. Yep, lay-ee-odl-lay-ee-odl-oo, or something like that. This movie will forever go down in history, mainly for the fact that this film taught us to never make curtains out of floral drapes. That was a look, Maria.
