Ten Flicks That Made a Big Impact on Me ~ THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY

When I realize I’ve reached Day 9 of the 10-day movie challenge, I’m both amazed and sad because I could go on picking films forever – but don’t worry, I won’t.  I have been busy these past 9 days after being tagged by a friend on Facebook and asked to do the following:   Each day for the next 10 days, post an image from a film that made an impact on me.  No backstory or explanation. Only a photo.   I’ve talked about this film before, along with a few of my other ‘Ten Flicks’...

Ten Flicks that Made a Big Impact on Me ~ PULP FICTION

Hard to believe it’s already Day 8 of the 10-day movie challenge I’ve been tackling since being tagged by a friend on Facebook.  I am asked to do the following:   Each day for the next 10 days, post an image from a film that made an impact on me.  No explanation. Just the photo.   If you know me, you also know I’m pretty headstrong and nobody shuts me up (nor do they put me in a corner or get in to see the Wizard…NOBODY!) If you really do want to know why I picked this film to be part of my Ten Flicks, you...

Ten Flicks That Made a Big Impact on Me ~ SIXTEEN CANDLES

Here we are, Day 7 of the 10-day movie challenge I’ve been embarking on after being tagged by a friend on Facebook.  I am supposed to do the following:   Each day for the next 10 days, post an image from a film that made an impact on me.  But do not include any stories or explanation. Just the photo.    As always, I followed the rules out on my personal Facebook page and just posted the photo. But here I like to share the rest of the story for anyone interested in knowing it. Why did I pick this film of all of the incredibly...

Ten Flicks That Made a Big Impact on Me ~ THE EXORCIST

The journey continues through my 10-day movie challenge after being tagged by a friend on Facebook.  I have been tasked to do the following:   Each day for the next 10 days, post an image from a film that made an impact on you.  But do not include any explanation. Only the photo.    So, of course, I’m ignoring that last part of the task and putting the explanation elsewhere, in the form of goofy little audios (5 minutes or shorter) on my YouTube channel. If you really do want to know why I picked this this next motion picture,...

Ten Flicks That Made a Big Impact on Me ~ WORKING GIRL

I’m continuing my multi-day movie challenge having been tagged by a friend on Facebook.  Here’s my homework every day during the challenge:   Each day for the next 10 days, post an image from a film that made an impact on you.  But do not include the story behind your choice. Only a photo.    Yeah, sure. Right. Here I share a brief audio (about 5 minutes in length) about the story behind my selection. If you care to listen, click on the link below. Otherwise, look at the pretty pictures and nod to yourself.  ...

Ten Flicks That Made a Big Impact on Me ~ A ROOM WITH A VIEW

So, if you’ve been following along the last few days, you know that I was recently tagged to take part in a Facebook group tag-you’re-it movie challenge.  Here’s what I’ve got to do every day during the challenge:   Each day for the next 10 days, post an image from a film that made an impact on you.  But nothing more – no story, no reason, no explanation at all. Just the photo.    It’s harder than you think. Anyway, I always find ways. Quiet little rule-breaker that I am, I’m sharing the...

Ten Flicks That Made a Big Impact on Me ~ ON THE WATERFRONT

Since being tagged in the latest and greatest Facebook group tag-you’re-it activity, I’ve learned that some of my friends and followers have similar movie tastes.

Ten Flicks That Made a Big Impact on Me ~ AMERICAN GRAFFITI

Recently, I was tagged in the latest and greatest Facebook group tag-you’re-it activity. This challenge demands of its participants the following:   Each day for the next 10 days, post an image from a film that made an impact on you.  But no other commentary. Just the photo.    Since not explaining is something I’m incapable of doing, I’m posting only a photo on my personal Facebook page with no title, no explanation, nothing else. But for those who want to know more, the reasons or history behind my choosing that...

Great American Read ~ Reviews: CHARLOTTE’S WEB

Check out my latest book review on GoodReads, part of the Great American Read Summer Challenge 2018 I embarked on last month. My mission: to knock off as many of the 78 books I have never started and/or finished on the Great American Read booklist shared by PBS affiliates across the country recently.   This time around, I picked a children’s literature classic that I’d seen on the little screen in movie form but to my recollection, never explored on the page – E.B. White’s barnyard adventures found...

Ten Flicks that Made a Big Impact on Me ~ AMADEUS

When I got tagged on my personal Facebook page by a friend and former newspaper colleague to take part in the latest circulating, tag-you’re-it activity, I was excited. I don’t usually react that way when I’m tagged. Most of the time, a bit ashamed to admit – I ignore tagged requests. But this one was different. This one was about…MOOOOOOOOVIES.   I think I might have squealed out loud when I saw the tag. Or maybe I meowed. (“You made a woman meow?” Hee. Yeah, you may see that one pop up on this...
