I hate nostalgia. I really do. Glorifying stuff from the past simply because it was a beloved thing of the past? Not for me. I’d much rather judge something based off its actual quality, not some warm feeling I had when I was ten. Besides, revisiting a lot of those older things shows many of them weren’t that good to begin with.
So, with that in mind, I decided to check out The Monster Squad just before it left Netflix. I’d seen it once from start to finish as a kid, remembered more or less liking it, and was wondering how good it actually was. Anyway, thoughts after the cut.
