I was trying to think of a thread that doesn't make everyone want to start screaming at each other (not anyones fault - I think it is the nature of forums)
But I am useless at starting threads that anyone is even vaguely interested in.
However, I wondered what peoples childhoods were like and how they feel it affected them? Was there something in your childhood that encouraged you to be interested in film?
What do you think about childhood these days?
I was born to a single parent and was going to be adopted! But, everyone felt sorry for me lying in the little cot and took me home.
I actually enjoyed my childhood, although it was quite mad, really. I have been a very full on 'mum' myself..possibly to compensate.
Anyway, my nan and grandad were both real film buffs who would have loved it here (my nan is still here but can't type) and watched every classic film going. I think this did affect my love of film and I started getting involved in theatre groups and school Drama clubs as soon as I could.
Watches thread die...
And in the spirit of this - my daughter has just finished watching the Rugrats and wants to type some smilies - hope that is OK.:
