1. Name a movie you have seen more than 10 times.

The Wizard of Oz

Every single year when spring time rolled around, The Wizard of Oz was shown on television. The stations played it early, around 6:00 so the kiddies could watch it.
This was before home video, so the only way to see The Wizard of Oz was to watch it each spring on television.
For me, it was a very special event.
The music.
That tornado.
The magical change over from black and white to color.
The songs...
And the witch with her absolutely green, scary face.

One of our children asked me how many times I had seen this movie.
And well...I think it may be over 30 times...easily.

2. Name a movie you’ve seen multiple times in the theater.

Rocky and Gone with the Wind

3. Name an actor who would make you more inclined to see a movie.

Tom Hanks

4. Name an actor who would make you less likely to see a movie.

Tom Cruise

5. Name a movie you can and do quote from.

Parenthood, The Wizard of Oz, Rocky, The Princess Bride.

6. Name a movie musical in which you know all of the lyrics to all of the songs.

Oklahoma, West Side Story, Singin in the Rain, The Wizard of Oz, Camelot,
Fiddler on the Roof....

7. Name a movie you have been known to sing along with.

Fiddler on the Roof

8. Name a movie you would recommend everyone see.

To Kill a Mockingbird.

"Hey Boo."

Older Scout: [narrating] Neighbors bring food with death, and flowers with sickness, and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a knife, and our lives.

One time Atticus said you never really knew a man until you stood in his shoes and walked around in them; just standin' on the Radley porch was enough. The summer that had begun so long ago had ended, and another summer had taken its place, and a fall, and Boo Radley had come out.

I was to think of these days many times. Of Jem, and Dill, and Boo Radley, and Tom Robinson, and Atticus. He would be in Jem's room all night, and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning.

Tears welling...sniff...sniff...

I would like to know from ya'll;

What is the funniest movie you have ever seen?
What movie do you recommend everyone see?
What is the first movie you remember seeing?
Name a movie you can quote from...
and quote something :o)

Share the movie love!

My quotes;

"I happen to like the roller coaster!"
"Yo, Adrian, it's me, Rocky"
"The happiest days are when babies are born, Cpt. Butler"

And one of the most romantic lines I have ever heard,

Rhett Butler: No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.

Oh. Swoon.

Encourage one another,
