Inspired Movies Number 2..

Here are ten more movies I though about last night while crocheting and just thinking.

1. Anaconda. Not really for kids but a great adult movie. Jennifer Lopez plays in this one. She isnt that bad in this one. Never seen the second one to this one. But anyway they get lost out in the middle of a jungle and meet up with this man hunting Anaconda's.

2. Searching for Bobby Fischer. A movie about this 7 year old boy who picks up on chess like nothing before by watching the homeless play in the park. Interesting really. A family oriented movie.

3. Star Wars 1-6. I have my favorite lines from these also. Esp the Jeti wave that Jeff and I do to each other.. LOL.. Yes I know it sounds childish but we have to have some fun... I dont have to explain this one.

4. Road House Patrick Swayze Very handsome tight muscled dude doing all the bouncing in a bar. Again maybe not for the kids with all the fighting and such but again we adults need some movies to ourselves.

5. The Stand Stephan King at one of his best I think. Its not creepy really like IT and its not lame like some of his others. So these people go looking on how to stop whats going on with what they have on there backs and nothing else.

6. Men In Black that one is good but I couldnt stand the second one. I mean a good sci fi is this one here. Maybe not Will Smiths best but close.

7. The Scorpion King This guy is looking for a lady and finds her and she is suppose to be a virgin and cant have sex or else she will lose her powers she is suppose to have. Interesting movie. Lots of fighting again.

8. Dancing with Wolves. Watching one man get along with the Indians from our past. Knowing its not real but still it could have been that way once in a life time. You just never know. We let the girls watch that one because its a good lesson in history really.

9. Interview with a Vampire. Ann Rice is a good writer and I have never read the book but we have the movie here. Its interesting how they used Tom Cruse as there top Vampire.

10. Apolo 13. Tom Hanks and three other are to go up to space but dont make it because a line breaks and they dont have enough fuel to get back to earth if the keep the shuttle running so they have to fit three or four other people in the little shuttle attached and then shut everything down. They have no heat or what nots. Well they get back to earth but its intensely wondering if they will make it.

11. Pretty Woman This one I watched as a young teenager and wondered what it would be like to have a life like that and then find love a rich man will to change me and love me for who I am.


Ok. I have mentioned 21 movies in the last two days. I could go on but I wont bore you with my favorite movies. Well enjoy this list as well. I will be back on Monday.

One of you mentioned you hope Jeff gets a break over X-mas. He will work the week before X-mas and then he will work X-mas Eve until 3 pm and then X-mas day off. Not much time off from work. But we are looking at going to my dad's house on Dec. 22nd.

I am almost done with Zombie's bigger blanket of the two. I need two more skeins of yarn for it and I am done other wise.. Another 20 inches and I am done. That wont take long.. Anyway I have a couple of scarves to do and then I dont know whats next. Maybe one more afghan. If you any of you want somethign done just ask. I can try is all I can say.

I am going to make cookies this weekend. I am going to look at making some of those Hershey Kiss Cookies and Peanutbutter Cookies. I am really looking forward to the holiday season since it seemed so glum a few short weeks ago. I owe some of this Season Glow to Candy Minx with the thought of selling some of my stuff. Well enough for today. I will be back on Monday and have a wonderful weekend and enjoy it as well as you can.

I like apollo 13, star wars and scorpion king. I agree the second MIB was awful!

Courtney said...

Tweetey, I'm sending everything either this afternoon or tomorrow morning. I couldn't get to your address since it's in my email and we lost our internet connection. :P
I thought I was going to go insane!

Gayle said...

The Stand was exellent, Tweetey. I haven't seen all of those, but I have watched Sar Wars. It was outstanding too. :)

At least Jeff gets Christmas Day off. Nice to know he doesn't work for Scrooge... just almost! :)

Jeannie said...

I haven't seen a few of the movies but there were a number of good ones. Funny how certain movies hit you at the time you are in your life.

I'm not as into movies as I am books. I read far too many though and wouldn't be able to list the ones I liked. I will gladly buy a few authors now but generally, don't "know" them unless I've read a few of their books and enjoyed all of them. I liked the early Stephen King - esp The Shining but his later stuff was just too weird.

Hammer I think they are all good.

Courtney that is fine. I am here waiting for them. Dont go insane please.


Gayle yes they were very good. and Yes he seems like he does work for a scrooge sometimes but he gets two weeks vacation time so he is going to take a break in early Feb.

Jeannie I like taking my chances with books esp on the bargain racks when I get my books for like 2.99-7.99.

My Favorite show of all time is, "Lonesome Dove." I've been in little Texas towns years ago that look just like Lonesome Dove. Everyone in the movie were perfectly suited for their parts, from Gus to Lori Darlin'.

Candy Minx said...

I am a crazy Star Wars freaky fan. I've seen them so many times I can't tell you.

Love Roadhouse and Appollo 13 too...a great list of yours all around.

Today Stagg and I are watching movies all day and night. I've got a big bunch od nachos and five layer dip...and we're gonna pig out and relax!

Candy Minx said...

I could write a little about all the movies.

I loved the STand too..I'd almost have to join the bad guys though because they dressed way better than the "good guys" ha ha
