Straight-to-Video Movies and your Childhood
When most people talk about movies that they’ve loved since they were little, they are most likely talking about theatrically released films. However, if you were born during the heyday of video rental stores, such as Blockbuster Video, there is a chance that your favorite childhood film never made it to the silver screen. While most straight-to-video films are not considered crown gems, to say the least, that does not mean that they should be ignored and forgotten. This article will go into the history of direct-to-video films aimed at the child market, as well as an in-depth reflection of my favorite childhood straight-to-video film, Disney’s Where the Toys Come From (1983). I would also encourage readers to post their own favorite straight-to-video film and their reasons why, so I can discuss those films in a later article.
