SEVEN Movies I Want to Buy for Myself

Yesterday was all about movies I love so much I just had to own them. Of course, I haven’t even begun to finish collecting my favorites titles yet. So since yesterday’s list was about seven movies I already own, I decided to make today’s about the same number that I still need to buy. Think my family will remember them in December?


1. About a Boy

2. Bridget Jones I (Don’t play this clip with the kids.)

3. Bridget Jones II

4. Chocolat

5. Man on the Moon

6. Sling Blade

7. What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?

What about you?

What movies are on your holiday/birthday/Arbor Day list?

Not Exactly Your Classic Boy Meets Girl Story (for Trifextra)

Trifextra gave us a fun assignment this weekend. Retell your favorite book in 33 words. And really the hardest part for me was picking a favorite book. Considering what an illiterate boob I am, I sure had a lot of ideas swimming around in my flabby brain. Until I settled on this one. It’s actually a screenplay written by a little-known actor at the time named Billy Bob Thornton. It was later developed into a movie of the same name. It’s definitely a favorite around this house, which probably makes us a family of freaks. Although I’m not sure we can really blame that on the story.

* Spoiler Alert – I tell the whole story here. Don’t read it if you don’t want to know.
