My Top 5 Favorite Movies From The Non-Existent In-Car DVD Player Of My Youth

For all intents and purposes; I was born in 1979. When there was hi-fi not wi-fi. I’ve been on several family road trips spanning chasms of time I’ll never get back. I swear, one time we spent 11 hours in a car and 5 of it was stand-still traffic. I actually started to contemplate eating my brother towards the end.
