Facebook Film Foolishness Part 5



While I was racking my brain for weeks to whittle down my original list, (And my other list, and my other other list) Jeff challenged me again with a fellow Facebook film fan Chris's more difficult “10 DAY MOVIE CHALLENGE.”

The rules are: you have to post an image of a NONHUMAN NONBLOCKBUSTER movie character that affected you in some way. Even if it was in the background or had only 5 seconds of screen time. Doesn't matter. ***NO JAWS, STAR WARS, ALIEN, THING, ETC. IT'S A CHALLENGE***

So Far, His Youth is Pretty Darn Good


The whole Disney Trip Clan of my immediate family drove out to Port Washington, New York to see my Nth Cousin Xce Removed Bobby Conte Thornton in his oneish man show: Blame it on My Youth, at Eight PM on Friday October 19. 

Because he had a special guest in something he normally does alone (with a four piece backup band) I called it a “oneish” man show.

Because we were worried about making it through start of weekend traffic from New Jersey to Long Island, we left…

Tuesday.

Facebook Film Foolishness Part 4


There is another whole group of ten movies that are portions of my soul that didn’t meet the original requirements, or last week’s

They say the first few years of life are key for imprinting on a language. My theory is that the teen years are key for imprinting on movie quotes.  This is a series of films from the 1980’s with varying degrees of mystical or fantastic elements that in most cases I don’t remember the first time I saw them. However, as years have passed they’ve wormed into my brain to a level that most weeks will not pass without me quoting many of them.
