Although it’s cool when our favorite childhood movies get remade, there is something about the originals that still leave us feeling nostalgic.
During the cozy holiday season, USDish is looking for a nostalgia movie critic that won’t mind going back to simpler times to reexperience 5 of their favorite childhood movies—and get paid $1,234.
How to Apply
Applications will be accepted now until December 17th, 2021 at 12 PM MT on our official application page.

Why Embark on our Nostalgia Adventure
With movies that have impacted generations celebrating anniversaries, getting remade, and receiving much-deserved next installments, we wanted to memorialize those films that made us. Plus, wouldn’t it be fun to see what has changed when we watch them from an older (and wiser) perspective?
- Movies celebrating anniversaries:
- The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (20th)
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (20th)
- Beauty and the Beast (30th)
- Hook (30th)
- Fiddler on the Roof (50th)
- Movies celebrating remakes:
- West Side Story
- Much-awaited sequels:
- Ghostbusters: Afterlife
- Top Gun: Maverick
- Matrix 4
The Adventure and Pot of Gold
The nostalgia movie critic can share their childhood films with children in their own family, with friends, or with a partner. They can recruit whatever crew they desire before they sail off to watch 5 childhood movies by January 15th. We’ve even built a map that can guide the winner to the highest-rated childhood movie of their decade.
The winner will get access to their 5 chosen movies, $1,234 in cash (that’s about $245 per movie!), and a box of treats from the decade they grew up in.
