I'll start with one of my all time favorites, the Charles Dickens novel BLEAK HOUSE. An 8 hour long film, it was not put in theaters, but was made for TV.
With a multitude of Characters, deaths, and love stories, this movie will keep you watching until you've got the mystery solved.
BBC did a wonderful job at making this movie intriguing, with different camera views that you would never expect. That's basically what it is...the unexpected. It is not rated, being made for TV, and is rather dark all the way through, with some disturbing images to those who are 10 and under. Over all it is not very scary, although the unknown may give you the creeps. :) I really recommend this one.
Yea, I know, big difference of movie styles, isn't it? =)
Hood winked is a fun twist on the original story of little red riding hood. Although rather dumb at some parts, it oddly has a good message about the different sides of a story and different perspectives. It also has some parts in it that just hits my type of humor, especially the wolf in it.
If your not into animated movies, then don't watch it, but if your feeling ready and willing, give it a go! ;)
Anne Hathaway plays Little Reds voice, and although I'm not a fan of hers, she does a good job at it, and I've seen her in a couple other good movies.
Last but Definitely not least, Amazing Grace is the story of William Wilberforce and his long battle in court over the slave trade:
He fought for so long and finally won, although actual slave labor was not abolished for a long time, and there are still slaves in third world countries today, sadly. This movies brings laughter and tears, and is a great history lesson.
Romola Garai plays his lovely wife, and this picture does not quite do her justice, but oh well. I have see her in other movies and enjoyed her humor and style, and although naturally her hair color is blond, I think the red hair gives her some character. ;-) This is a must see, although dark as well, has images of what happened to the slaves, would not recommend for the younger group.
I will post my tags and award on Monday, just to let you know.
Here are others that have posted about it so far:
Nahla (Or at least I think she will)
The others have not done it yet.
Thursday, October 22, 2009
I will post something better soon!
Friday, October 16, 2009
I will now award:
Megan, Hannah, and Laurel ( I would award you, Nahla, but I know you've already been awarded).If you don't know what to do, you just post about and then put it on your sidebar for all to see.
Secondly, I wanted to let you know that Eldarwen, Nahla, me, and others will all be posting their opinions about Relationships on Saturday. I will link to the others, and feel free to post your opinion in comment form. This will be interesting.
Thirdly, I was wondering how a movie trivia quiz sounds to every body out there? I know Nahla just did one, but I would wait until after hers was done.
And lastly, I made a tag, so here it is:
Do you like long tags or short tags?

What was the last movie you watched?
National Treasure 2: Book of secrets

Fifteen does not feel that different at all...oh well. I will post a tag made by me soon, probably tomorrow.

The Crystal Bowl
By Caitlin Carstensen
The light of sun diffused
Sends glimmering rays around
The sparkling, dancing drops
Scattering darkness from the ground.
This the same as the joyous Christian
Scatters the light of the Holy Son.
Only water pure and clear
From the earth, the deepest wells
Wash the crystal clear and shining
To catch the beauty no one sells.
This the same as the joyous Christian
Cleansed in the holy water of Life.
May the bowl be filled with fruits
Of the sweetest, crispest kind
From all manner giving, sharing
Heaped to brimming every time.
This the same as the joyous Christian
Filled with the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Like the Crystal Sea of heaven
Radiant in the glorious light
Stretching out into the distance
Always full and glimmering bright.
This the same as the joyous Christian
A crystal bowl diffusing Christ.
I hope you were blessed.

Laurel, Jillian, and my father make special claim on fall as it is the settings for their birthdays. Laurel recently turned 18, celebrating with s'mores, a campfire, a friends. Jillian will have her golden birthday turning 15 on the 15th. She hopes to celebrate by getting her braces removed very soon. My father is after that and we will find some way to spend the time outdoors which is his favorite way to celebrate. When we were younger we would go camping. If he could we would do that again. More things to love about fall.
I have two beautiful sisters.
Laurel, please don't get mad at me, but this is a great pic of you.
Jillian, you are very elegant indeed.

Also having a hard time figuring out what to write that will spark peoples interests and not bore them to death, or something like that. It's rather a challenge when ones number of readers is so small. Suggestions, anyone? Requests? I'd like to know.
P.S I hear people are having trouble commenting. I have no idea what that is or why it is doing that. Sorry!
