A to Z Challenge
This year I'm participating in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. The point of the challenge is to create a blog post for every day (except Sundays), which with close to 1000 participants, should drive more traffic to everyone's blog. 26 days of the month, 26 letters of the alphabet - a month of blogging.
My theme this year is my favorite movies of each letter of the alphabet. Enjoy!
"The legend had it coming ... Find out where Robin Hood put his Little John, what made Will Scarlet, and what did Friar Tuck into his tights that Maid Marian all of a quiver?"
I know lately I've been starting with a quote, but the tagline for the movie is so fabulous, I had to use it! This movie has been a family favorite for years. My sister and I quote this movie often and even though it's been years since we've watched it (at least for me), we can still quote it pretty well. I heard it's on Netflix right now, so I think I'll be adding it to my weekend activities!
"You broke the ship. You broke the bloody ship."
I didn't have a lot to choose from for "Q" - but of the movies available, this movie was my favorite. With a cast of Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman & Sam Rockwell, you know the movie is going to be good, regardless.
"As you wish."
I can't decide which quote is my favorite in this movie. They're all classic, just like the story.
"PC load letter? What the fuck does that mean?"
We're back in 1999 again today for Office Space, one of my all-time favorite movies. This movie has it all: romance, theft, crazy-psycho employees, good friends, dorky bosses and cubicles. Oh, and quotes to use...lots and lots of quotes.
"I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her."
I dare you to watch that scene and not cry. Go on.
We're back in London for Notting Hill, another of my favorite movies. What's not to love about this movie? It's got Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Hugh Bonneville...the list goes on.
Princess Aurora: "Hello Godmother."
Maleficent: "Hello Beasty."
[Natalie, a secretary, is greeting the Prime Minister]
Natalie: Hello, David. I mean "sir". Shit, I can't believe I've just said that. And now I've gone and said "shit" - twice. I'm so sorry, sir.
Prime Minister: It's fine, it's fine. You could've said "fuck," and then we'd have been in real trouble.
Natalie: Thank you, sir. I did have an awful premonition that I was gonna fuck up on the first day. Oh, piss it!
"It's not a tumor!"
One of my favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, ever. This was another movie that seemed to be on the television all the time and I had no qualms about watching often. I haven't watched it in years and after doing a little research for this blog post, I have an overwhelming desire to watch it.
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
Jaws, the movie that made New Englanders afraid of the water for the first time in their lives. We're always told that the water in New England is too cold for sharks and so it's a rare, rare occasion to find a shark in northern waters. Then to have a man-eating shark terrorizing a tourist town, never happen. But it did, in glorious high definition, all gory and action-packed.
"Ah, dessert! Chilled monkey brains!" - not my idea of deliciousness, but to each their own, right? I about died when they wheeled out the monkey brains and placed them in front of everyone. I was right there with Willie when it came down to it, I would not have eaten it either.
