In Greek, ‘nostalgia’ literally means the pain from an old wound’. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn’t a spaceship, it’s a time machine. It goes backwards and forwards, it takes us to a place where we ache to go again.
I really love how men are getting offended by Chris Hemsworth’s character being a dumb blond surrounded by smart women in Ghostbusters, as if women haven’t been forced to put up with that trope a hundred times over. I have never once heard those same men complain when the opposite happens.
