Classic movie scenes change your life forever
Have you ever stopped to think about just how classic movie scenes really do change your life forever?
This may be for the better – but it’s usually for the worse. But then we homo-sapiens do love to be scared in the name of entertainment. So let me illustrate; tell me, really, have you ever been able to swim in deep sea water that you can’t see underneath and been relaxed in doing so since you first saw Jaws?
You see what I mean? So whether we really want them to be or not, many classic movie scenes are indelibly etched into our memories forever.
And perhaps this is something we really need to think about before we go to see any new movies? After all, we may emerge from the movie theater completely changed people. After all, have you ever been able to push through a clearing in the woods or a forest without hearing the first few twangy notes of “ Dueling Banjos” since you first saw Deliverance? If so, good for you – but for many of us, the very understandable fear lives on!
Or how about the bursting of alien from John Hurt’s stomach? If you ever have a severe belly ache, it’s difficult to get that particular compulsive thought out of your head. And who can ever forget the screeching music from that scene in Psycho when taking a shower behind a curtain?
The bad list goes on and on – far longer than the good stuff. But there are some nicer moments. So for example, how many of us could really walk across a New York subway grating and not think about Marilyn Monroe’s dress blowing upwards from The Seven Year Itch?
The fact is that classic scenes fundamentally affect our lives forever more once they’re etched into our memories – whether we like it or not. So maybe you should think twice before you go and see Fast and Furious 6, because you’ll never be able to drive down a remote canyon highway again without thinking you’re going to get a wire rope across our windshield.
