Late Night and Nostalgia
Been years since I had to stay up to watch a movie. Decades. So I thought I'd see what the experience would feel like. I chose Hercules and the Captive Women, a movie I knew to contain actual sorcery and monsters. It starred Reg Park who played Hercules in my all time favorite Sword & Sandal film, Hercules in the Haunted World. So I sat up late reading, and didn't start the movie until well after midnight.
And you know what? I actually was able to capture just a little of that old feeling. That 'sand in my eyes and I really want to see how this ends but I kind of wish it would be over so I could get to sleep' feeling that I haven't had since I was 14 or so. Now if I'd only had a sleeping bag.
