ON MOVIES ~ Cruisin'...



Feature Presentation...

MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about On The Road...

So we are off this week on our vacation in the trusty Jeep Cherokee across NY State and into Canada! Which has inspired today's topic. So many movies are all about getting from Point A to Point B and the humor/drama/horror that occurs along the way. Here are some of the ones that rolled into our thoughts - we didn't list them all because we didn't want to hog the road. Two others that we thought of but didn't list star Oscar winnng actors - one in the performance that earned him the award. Can you guess which movies we're thinking of? Share on your blog movies that focus on road trips and then link back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

  • Thelma & Louise - 1991 (bad ass Chick Flick)
  • Vacation - 1983 (Chevy at his best)
  • Easy Rider - 1969 (a 60's trip on bikes)
  • Y Tu Mama Tambien - 2001 (horny, yet critically acclaimed, foreign film)
  • The Hitcher - 1986 (the horror of picking up strangers)
  • Little Miss Sunshine - 2006 (rallying the family around a kid's dream)
  • Cannonball Run - 1981 (I can't drive 55)
  • It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World - 1963 (ultimate race for cash)

    How about Mad Max, the Mel Gibson movie.

    Good idea.
    Sadly I seem to not be a great watcher, or maybe just not a great thinker at the moment. Here is my rather short list.

    I didn't think I'd be able to think of more than two road trip movies, but then hubby and I got to talking and we came up with several more.

    Mine is up! I'll be better about visiting everyone this week. Last week was just too crazy and I apologize for that.

    After seeing that you'd already taken Little Miss Sunshine and Thelma and Louise, I thought you'd exhausted all my favorites. Then I saw "Cruisin'" at the top of your blog....

    Daisy said...

    Aww how time flies! I missed out on a couple of Mondays for my favorite meme! But this topic is cool as the others, although I must admit the only movie I saw from what you mentioned is Little Miss Sunshine. What a silly grandpa she had. ;-)
