Blog Challenge...Day Eight

September 1, 2011


To be honest, I hate going to the movie theatre!  For me to suggest a "date night" movie is a real surprise to my husband.  For some reason, I hate sitting in a room with many strangers who are eating popcorn by the handful.  The sound of people eating popcorn disgusts me!  

 The fact I only need to list three movies is quite simple for me....

"We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all."
Maybe it is my age, but this is a movie I love. 
(Was there a bad John Hughes film?)
"Hey, hey! What's This? I thought this was a party? LET'S DANCE!" 
I don't even want to think about what someone was thinking when they thought remaking this movie was a good idea!  
"You is kind. You is smart. You is important!"
On a rainy afternoon last week, I went to see this movie with a good friend.  I am sorry I had not read the book before seeing the movie, but none the less, I absolutely loved every moment of this movie! I immediately purchased the book, and I am looking forward to reading it (once we get settled in our new home for the season). 
 BONUS MOVIE...because I cannot break the streak!
"Well, what am I supposed to do? You won't answer my calls, you change your number. I mean, I'm not going to be ignored, Sting!"
Two days to go! Next up...

I love Footloose, too.  When I was in college people compared me to Arial because my dad was a preacher, too.  I definitely wasn't as wild as her BACK THEN . . .

I totally have to agree with you on the first two!(only because I haven't seen The Help yet)  They definitely don't make movies like they did in the 80's.   I thought for sure you'd have Dune in here, but the Fatal Attraction cover is much, much better indeed!!

I love that you are obsessed with Sting. I've gotten little giggles out of these posts all week!

PS) The Help is an amazing book. You'll have to let me know if the movie does it justice after you finish reading it!

PSS) I may need to do this 10 day idea, too! Keep me laughing, girl!

I love Footloose! I saw the trailer for the remake and blah! I don't know why they remake movies that are already amazing...don't even get me started on the remake of Dirty Dancing!

I have to agree with you about The Breakfast Club and John Hughes.  I love all of those movies as well!  And while I've never seen Footloose (I know, what have I been thinking?!), I was always under the impression that it was the kind of movie that should never ever be remade but eventually would.  I cringed when I first saw the trailer for it.  I read the help and loved the book.  I worry about books made into movies, but have heard nothing but rave reviews for it, so now I need to go see it!
