What does it mean to "love cinema?" It is not just a love for a specific movie or even a particular genre but a general love for movies. In the pages of It Came From Hollywood, there are no "guilty pleasures," no "so bad they're good" flicks, and certainly no "trash cinema" movies.
Rest assured, when our writers write about a particular movie or group of movies, it is a subject they thoroughly enjoy. It also includes a love for a favorite theater or drive-in. It is the delicious anticipation of watching a new movie, the allure of possibly discovering your newest favorite movie. It is an appreciation for the time and place in which a film was viewed, as those details can be as important as the movie itself. It is compelling the older you get when seeing a particular movie on TV can elicit such sweet memories of people and places long gone.
The power movies have over us is to transport us back to specific times in our lives. Movies are maybe the closest thing to time travel we should ever play around with.
