Today is the last day of Summer Camp Week here at Camp Carnage. Although this week we had some problems, it was still fun.
So, today I decided to watch movies that bring out the fun side of camp. Meatballs and Ernest Goes To Camp.
Meatballs is one of my favorite movies. I never get tired of watching it. Bill Murray leading a camp of misfit counselors for the summer, and helping a young camper realize he is important.
This is what I dreamed summer camp would be like. Crazy fun, wild counselors, making new friends, just having a good time.
I love how even though this is a comedy, it still makes you feel good, watching how everything comes together, and watching how Tripper takes Rudy under his wing and makes him feel special and not awkward. It is amazing how you can watch a movie that was made in 79 can still make you smile and feel good. I still want to go to Camp Northstar! If only movies still made you feel like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USvMWm-ZqvQ
Ernest Goes To Camp is just AWESOME!!! I mean who doesn’t love Ernest?
A group of troubled kids are given the chance to go to camp, and no one wants to help them, except Ernest, the only problem is Ernest has trouble taking care of his self. This is another feel good movie, it shows you that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything. These kids have always been put down and looked down on, but Ernest encourages them, and shows them anything is possible. Things become even worse when a mining company wants to take over the camp. It’s up to Ernest and the kids to save the day, and become the heroes they are meant to be.
I love Jim Varney, he was a master at what he did. That guy could make you laugh, cry, shout, he was magical. This movie will make you feel good, and wish you could have gone to camp and have a counselor like Ernest!
So, now that camp is over, I wanted to thank everyone for reading and I hope you enjoyed it.
A big thanks to Chris from Secondhand Terror for lending a hand.
I would love to hear from all of you, let me know about your favorite summer movies.
See you next summer at Camp Carnage!
