Netflix Pick of the Week: The Movies That Made Us

 the movies that made us

Is Home Alone one of your must-watch holiday films? Have you ever argued with a friend over whether Die Hard is really a Christmas movie? If so, then the Netflix series The Movies That Made Us is for you. 

This new series from the folks that brought you The Toys That Made Us looks at the stories behind four beloved films: Home Alone, Die Hard, Dirty Dancing, and Ghostbusters. Each episode features interviews with key players involved in each movie, including actors like Dan Aykroyd and Daniel Stern and directors Ivan Reitman and Chris Columbus.

The Movies That Made Us wants to tap into the same sort of fuzzy nostalgia as its predecessor The Toys That Made Us, and it’s likely to succeed. Season 1 is very ’80s-heavy, with episodes focusing on Die Hard, Ghostbusters, Dirty Dancing, and Home Alone (which is technically a ’90s movie, but still fits into that ’80s mold since it arrived in 1990).
