When we’re not watching movies, we’re usually finding a way to learn about the history of the classics and the ones that really hold a special place in our hearts. The second season of “The Movies That Made Us” is here and set to hit our Netflix screens on July 23. The series is directed Brian Volk-Weiss and written by Benjamin J. Frost and Volk-Weiss.
This season the movies that will be featured are Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Pretty Woman, and Forrest Gump.
Directed by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic Park was released in 1993, and features Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill. Back to the Future features Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Lea Thompson. It was directed by Robert Zemeckis and released in 1985.

Stemming from the Netflix show, “The Toys That Made Us,” season two of “The Movies That Made Us” will focus in depth on four movies from our childhood, each with their own episode.
The episodes will dive into each movie and have interviews with crew members who talk about the production and the lasting legacy each one of these films has left on society. Each episode is estimated to be between forty-five and fifty minutes long.
The first season and a special holiday season has featured Home Alone, Ghostbusters, Dirty Dancing, Die Hard, Elf, and Nightmare Before Christmas.
The new season features four more films that have become part of the zeitgeist and continue to live on and among the classic films of our era.
