The Weekly Retro Movie Rundown 204

Pitch a tent and light a fire! Another retro movie weekend had arrived!

Finding juuuuust the right spot to set up base camp, we find ourselves thrown into the wilderness once again as we begin another weekend of outdoor adventure. Unfolding plastic sheets, thumping in (and inevitably bending) tent pegs, sourcing a water supply and of course….blowing up the air bed, we’re all set for another adventure in the great British countryside. Will it rain? Will be blow away? Or perhaps will we just attract more bugs than a picnic in a busy swamp? Only time will tell.

Have a happy retro weekend!
