One aspect covered in For Kids of All Ages is that fateful moment when these critics – once, of course, kids themselves – first saw a movie and thought of it as something more than just entertainment. In Charles Taylor’s piece “How Seeing AIRPORT (1970) as a Kid Grounded My Critical Sensibility,” the critic relates his experience watching this grownup film with his family at the age of eight and making a striking connection between the plot and his own life. AIRPORT might be considered a bloated entertainment by some (in fact, it pretty much ushered in the age of the blockbuster disaster picture) but that overlooks the very real emotional connections that can be formed with a finely tuned performance in even the most supposedly banal of films… Plus, it’s still a lot of fun to watch on the big screen!
