NaBloPoMo…January.. habits.. same movie every month?!!


Friday, January 16, 2015
Similar to yesterday, if you had to watch the same movie every single month for the next 10 years, what would it be?

I think once again I would go with “Gone with the wind” for the same reason as yesterday. I am a HUGE Scarlett O’Hara fan and I just adored the way Vivien Leigh played her. each time I watch the movie I see something different, maybe I’ve read something about the history and I notice that in this viewing, or maybe I focus on a different actor, whatever but I have seriously seen this movie so many times I wore out the first set of Videos (back in the Day!!) so I brought it on DVD and I just love it. No one else in my family are interested in the movie so it’s my “Me time”

The other movie that I love and could (and have) watched over and over is “Bridges of Madison County” my bestie best friend Deanne and I discussed this movie yesterday after her neighbour insisted that Deanne read the book because she “cried and cried” as did I and still do whenever I see the movie. Yet, my cousin Lee, can sit on the couch next to me and not even see what I am crying about, Deanne said she didn’t think the book was “that good” I wonder then if perhaps Deanne’s neighbour who “cried and cried” and I who have bawled each time I see the movie, have had different life experiences from Deanne and Lee (my cousin) Maybe something in our past has given us a deeper connection with this movie that has made us more emotional about the movie, either way, every time Francesca (played by Meryl Streep) makes the heart wrenching decision NOT to leave her husband and run away with Robert Kincaid (Played by Clint Eastwood) I still yell at the TV “GOOOOO with HIM!!!” Every Time…

Imagine how different her life might be…

Have you seen “Bridges of Madison County“?? If so do you relate in any way that makes you emotional or are you of the “it’s NOT that sad” gang??

  1. I have seen it but it has been a while and I only saw it once. I read the book and enjoyed that but the movie, not so much. I am not a Meryl Streep fan so maybe that was it.

    Now for something entirely different…my favorite movie that I watch over and over again and own in every form possible…The Godfather. All three of them, although the first is my true favorite. I love the history, the tradition, the sense of family, the locations, the acting, and the cinematography is perfection. That’s my favorite. I watch all three of them back to back at least three or four times a year and that’s quite an investment of time because they run just under ten hours when you watch them all together. In fact, I’m thinking I might run them tonight. I just watched them right after Christmas but I think I’m feeling very Siciian now. 🙂 (No, I’m not really Sicilian.)
