Hi VWAGG      



       I don't know if I ever got back to you on your original post.  If I didn'tI'm sorry.  I'm
going
to
check
out  BONNEVILE,
at
the
Video
Store, for
I
don't
think
it
ever
played
hereIf
it didit
was
shown
in
our
Downtown
Theater, where
my
friend
does
not
like
to
go
because
of
crime, but
Saturday
night
will
be
the
exception, for
we
don't
want
to
miss
this
movie!   



    There
is
only
one
problem
when
we
rent
a
filmI
put
it
into
the
video
player, and
it's
like
someone
says, "Sleepy
Time", because
I
fall
asleep
shortly
into
the
moviePerhaps, I
should
move
the
video
player
into
the
living
room!



      It
looks

I"m
sending
this
link
to
most
of
you, only
so
you
receive
email
notification
of
this
postYou
also
like
light
comedy, and
this
should
fit
the
billThis
too, seems
like
it
has
a
limited
distribution, but
I
have
to
see
this
tomorrow
nightBe
sure
to
check

Hi Shelby, did you see "Away from Her"? It stars Julie Christi as the spouse with Altzheimer's. It was a really life like movie, and Julie is nominated for Best Supporting Actress. I don't remember the actor's name who played her husband, but he did a great job.  I watch so many movies with Garlon, I forget what I have watched, after awhile!  Ha!


 


Feeling a bit better now about things. I have made up my mind to carry out my June plans, for sure...hopefully I will get to visit with you...


 


Have a good evening!  Fran

I
have
seen
so
many
movies, and
most
of
my
favorites
are
in

pastToday
for
some
reason
I
have
had
the
movie "
Pay
it
Forward
" on
my
mind, probably
in
association
with
a
clip
I
saw
about
a
new
Oprah
show
about
giving
monetary
help
to
those
in
needThe
movie
is
shameless
treacle, but
the
message
in
it
was
clear, and
I
started
thinking
of
times
when
I
have 'paid
it
forward' and
encouraged
others
to
do
so




I
remember
being
in
the
check-out
line
at
the
grocery
store
behind
an
elderly
ladyShe
was
3
or
4
dollars
short
of
paying
her
bill, and
I
couldn't
stand
by
and
watch
her
try
and
decide
what
to
give
up, as none
of
her
purchases
were
extravagant. I
offered
to
help
and
she
was
so
grateful..."I
don't
know
how
to
thank
you", etc,
and
I
told
her
to
do
something
nice
for
another
person
to 'pay
me
back'.




When
I
purchased
my
last
car, my
old
car
was
12
years
oldIt
was
in
good
shape (the
typical 'little
old
lady's
car') but
I
knew
I
wouldn't
get
anything
for
it
in
a
trade
in
or
on
the
street, so
I
called
a
local
community
center
and
asked
if they
knew
anyone
who
was
in
dire
need
of
a
carThey
knew
a
woman
who's
car
had
been
totalled
through
no
fault
of
her
own, and
raising
her
small
children
alone
left
little
money
aside
for
purchasing
even
a
used
carShe
had
been
trying
to
scrounge
rides
from
co-workers
because
there
was
no
public
transportation
to
her
jobI
gave
her
the
car (for
a
dollar
to
comply
with
state
laws).  And
when
she
profusely
thanked
me, I
again
suggested
that
she 'pay
it
forward'.




I'm
not
writing
this
to
look
like
a
hero, but
to
continue
to
think
about
opportunities
to
do
good
for
others
in
little
waysI
did
come
out
well
on
the
car
deal
because
it
turned
out
that
the
organization
was
non-profit
and
I
got
a
tax
breakBut
it
was
so
much
nicer
than
donating
to
an
organization
and
not
knowing
who
I
helpedI
know
that
in
my
many
years
on
this
earth
that
I
have
been

by
many
people, and
I

the

Your

were
other
terrific
Child

"Shirley

"Jackie

Garlon", "Mickey
Rooney", "Natalie
Wood", even
"Leonardo

Caprio" started
when
he

quite
young, which

of?   I

that
I'm
missing
many
more!   Shelby

In Response to YOUR FAVORITE MOVIES and WHY?
:


Hi Everyone,



       I enjoy good acting
which was especially evident in: 12 Angry Men; They Shoot Horses,
Don't They;  Serpico;  Dog Day Afternoon; The
Pawnbroker;  GlenGarry, Glen Ross;  Forrest Gump; 
The Man Who Would Be King;  Million Dollar Baby;  Runaway
Jury;   Flag Of Our Fathers;  Mrs. Henderson
Presents;  Little Voice;  and Calendar Girls;  .



  I found that once I started listing my
Movies Favorites in "My Profile", I could go on and
on!   What are your movie Favorites, and why did you
like them?  You might want to even post a link providing
us with more information, provide us with a link
to it's Movie Trailer, or special video of a Movie
Scene found on  "You Tube".  It's up to
you!   



  It's recommended that you list one or two at a
time, (not like me)  so we can digest it all, before your next
post on the subject.  Plus it gives us the opportunity to
discuss that Movie!   Shelby




I
have
seen
so
many
movies, and
most
of
my
favorites
are
in
the
pastToday
for
some
reason
I
have
had
the
movie "
Pay
it
Forward
" on
my
mind, probably
in
association
with
a
clip
I
saw
about
a
new
Oprah
show
about
giving
monetary
help
to
those
in
needThe
movie
is
shameless
treacle, but
the
message
in
it
was
clear, and
I
started
thinking
of
times
when
I
have 'paid
it
forward' and
encouraged
others
to
do
so




I
remember
being
in
the
check-out
line
at
the
grocery
store
behind
an
elderly
ladyShe
was
3
or
4
dollars
short
of
paying
her
bill, and
I
couldn't
stand
by
and
watch
her
try
and
decide
what
to
give
up, as none
of
her
purchases
were
extravagant. I
offered
to
help
and
she
was
so
grateful..."I
don't
know
how
to
thank
you", etc,
and
I
told
her
to
do
something
nice
for
another
person
to 'pay
me
back'.




When
I
purchased
my
last
car, my
old
car
was
12
years
oldIt
was
in
good
shape (the
typical 'little
old
lady's
car') but
I
knew
I
wouldn't
get
anything
for
it
in
a
trade
in
or
on
the
street, so
I
called
a
local
community
center
and
asked
if they
knew
anyone
who
was
in
dire
need
of
a
carThey
knew
a
woman
who's
car
had
been
totalled
through
no
fault
of
her
own, and
raising
her
small
children
alone
left
little
money
aside
for
purchasing
even
a
used
carShe
had
been
trying
to
scrounge
rides
from
co-workers
because
there
was
no
public
transportation
to
her
jobI
gave
her
the
car (for
a
dollar
to
comply
with
state
laws).  And
when
she
profusely
thanked
me, I
again
suggested
that
she 'pay
it
forward'.




I'm
not
writing
this
to
look
like
a
hero, but
to
continue
to
think
about
opportunities
to
do
good
for
others
in
little
waysI
did
come
out
well
on
the
car
deal
because
it
turned
out
that
the
organization
was
non-profit
and
I
got
a
tax
breakBut
it
was
so
much
nicer
than
donating
to
an
organization
and
not
knowing
who
I
helpedI
know
that
in
my
many
years
on
this
earth
that
I
have
been
helped
by
many
people, and
I
think
of
them
whenever
I 'pay
it
forward.'




So, hold
the
door
for
the
next
person
coming
in; let
that
person
in
who
is
stuck
by
the
traffic
flowWe
can
only
hope
that
they
will 'pay
it
forward' too.




WowSorry
about
the
tangent, but
if
you
haven't
seen
the
movie, please
doWe
all
need
that 'feel
good' emotion
every
chance
we
get!

Hi
Shelby, I
am
still
trying
to
get
to
the
movies
to
see
The
Atonement. Oh
well, if
I
miss
it
here, I
can
wait
and
rent
it
laterI
love
Kathy
Bates
too. What
a
character
she
played
in "Misery."  Also, "Green
Fried
Tomatos" was
excellent, and
"Delores
Claiborne."  I
think
she
is
good
in
every
film
she
makes! I
sure
want
to
see "Bonneville" nowShelby,
do
you
like
Hume
Croynon
movies? He
starred
in
a
TV
movie, "Sea
of
People". You
