With the winter months upon us, the big freeze, I love a good movie. I'm not one to write movie reviews but wanted to share my all time favorite movie with my fellow writers.  I love Music and Lyrics with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. My first big writing gig was song lyrics (which I fell in love with)  so I connected with this movie instantly as I related to it a great deal. 

Here's a scene with Hugh getting Drew, the lyricist, to sing the song with him...  Music and Lyrics

What's your all time favorite winter movie?

I live in Sweden so during the winter I like any movie that has sunshine in it.  Cool

I almost watched that movie last night, Katie. I would have to think about what my favorite movie is for a while. I don't know if I could narrow it down to one. When I see a movie I really like, I go into obsessive mode and watch it over and over.

My all time favorite movie (even did a Wizz about it) is "Into The Wild" - the true story about young Chris McCandless who "did everything right" like college, etc...then walked away from society, just living in the moment with no possessions, etc. Even the soundtrack makes me cry whenever I listen to it (Eddie Veder sings the music...amazing). I've even read the book a few times...especially when I'm feeling disconnected from this crazy world. I highly recommend it!

He was born the same year as me (1968) so feel even more connected - he died in 1992 while on his journey.

Thanks gals, I needed a few pick me up movies to spark my motivation... both  movies I've not seen, off to the video store ....

Into the wild sounds like my kind of movie- I like hugh grant and ET girl :) never saw them together but love the dynamic (from the clip)...

You girls want to laugh your a** off go see This is 40, I've not laughed so hard in my whole life when she was B****slapping that kid (verbally) for bullying her daughter, it's a collage of funny moments actually- no holds barred comedy- also movie 43, Flight of the navigator, road house, Risky business, BTTF, for inspiration, startup.com (name of the movie, came out 20 years ago or more). Can't think of anymore, noopept hasn't kicked in yet haha (my healthy coffee alternative)

Trainspotting, Requim for a Dream, Pulp Fiction.... I just like dark and edgy movies to be honest, with an apparent morbid fascination with drug abuse that I hadn't realised until right now.

I enjoy a good old gangster flick too.... Lock Stock, Snatch, Reservoir Dogs.

You all have given me so many movies to choose from when trying to figure out what movie to watch.  That opportunity does not happen often with four kids under the age of 13. Every once in awhile my husband is sitting there with the remote in his hand and flipping through the Comcast On Demand section asking me what movie I want to see.  My response is always, "Hell, I don't know!"  I never can think of anything I want to watch when the time is right to watch one.  

One of the last ones I did watch was The Fourth Kind.   Was really disappointed about the whole movie after doing a little research and finding out that the so called "real footage" was not real at all.  The people were all actors.  So it kind of ruined it for me.  One of those freaky movies that makes you think about things a little.

I have to say that I am addicted to A&E with Duck Dynasty, Storage Wars, and Barter Kings. Duck Dynasty reminds me of my dad's side of the family!  I have always wanted to have a store that sells unique, antique, thrift, crafty, artsy fartsy things so Storage Wars and Barter Kings makes me think that there are so many ways to find items like this to go in a store.  

Otherwise, it is Power Rangers, The Hulk, Dora, etc.  Lets not forget Black Ops 2 and Minecraft for the olders ones on the computer or hooked up to the FAMILY TV.  Ughhh.. 

I think my older children are addicted to this Minecraft game.  Does anyone else have kids that play this?  Would make a great article....  seems to put my kids in a trance.  If any of you game experts out there can write a good article explaining this game and why it is so popular for children today that would be great.  Also, what are other parents saying about it.... is it really a good game for 10-13 year old kids etc.  

Didn't mean to write a book here.... ok... Jerrico is rubbing off on me.  Ha.. Wink

I haven't seen "Music and Lyrics"... will have to soon.

frugal - I did watch "Into the Wild" which had a wild ending to be sure!  Can't forget that one.

Jerrico - my boys used to love "Flight of the Navigator" (showing my age here).

Hey, brl, how about "Little Miss Sunshine" ? hahaha.. pretty movie funny too.  I do recommend it.

 

Just read your post Angel - my 15 year old loves Mine Craft.  I don't get it either.  (please, we don't need another Jerrico! Surprised)
