We're baaaaaaack! And we're joined by some special guests for this special edition of CineDrunk! Welcome, Nora and Cameron--fellow '90s kids who experienced no small part of their childhoods at the multiplex.
When nostalgia hangs in the balance, a vote against your favorite film can feel like a shot to the heart, so our showdown of '90s kids movies got extra heated. We chose our 32 contenders by popular vote, excluding films already allocated to other brackets. (Home Alone, you went too far in our Holiday Film Showdown. Sorry, Space Jam - hope to see you in our Sports Movies Showdown this summer!) And somehow a 1989 release slipped into the mix, but we'll skip over that in the hopes you won't notice or mind...
Our drink, of course, was an adult Shirley Temple. Lemon/Lime soda, grenadine, and a generous shot (or three) of gin. Like adults do, we got a little rowdy, so apologies for the audio quality near the end (blame a bag of candy someone thought was best to place right next to the microphone). Mix yourself a drink and listen in!
