Superhero

Crashing waves and soaky wet seaweed! Another retro movie rundown is here to guide you though another weekend!

Slowly bobbing up and down in a vast, cold lake, we find ourselves moments from being pulled along by the magical ropes and bars which are the only thing attaching us to the safety of the boat. Steadying our position with the board stuck firmly to our feet, the rope will begin to tighten in our grip as the boat starts to roar away from us. Feeling the force (not that one!) pull through the arms and legs, mysteriously we will begin to rise our of the depths and with one twist and turn, we will face side on and begin to ride the surface of the water like something from a superhero movie.

Have a happy retro weekend!
