ON MOVIES ~ Bugged Out...

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 Bugs...

Andy came strolling into the house today singing "Boris The Spider" - a tune by The Who. And of course The Who were the halftime act at the Super Bowl. So I took that as a sign for today's topic. I don't have a problem with bugs as long as they keep their distance. But if they crawl across me or land on me - ewwwwww. I get all creeped out and cause quite a scene. Probably because of all those movies I've seen with nasty scenes of disgusting masses of bugs crawling in and out of people. *shudder* Here are some movies or scenes we came up with that feature insects. Share on your blog others instances of those crawly critters and link back here at The Bumbles. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!

  • Creepshow (1982) - specifically the "Creeping Up On You" final segment featuring cockroaches
  • The Fly (1986) - turning into a fly hybrid
  • Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003) - along came a big, nasty, hobbit eating spider
  • Pinocchio (1940) - bugs aren't always gross - Jiminy Cricket was quite helpful and cute
  • Honey, I Shrunk The Kids (1989) - another nice bug - because of Anty I always watch where I'm walking outside
  • Do you have a topic to suggest to the Monday Movie Meme? Leave it in the Comments section or send us an e-mail.

    I would so love to join this meme, but I can never think of more than one movie. This time, it's Men in Black I and II (hey, two!): Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith, an odd combination that works, plus a whole lot of inter-galactic bugs! Slimy, but fun!

    Heather said...

    Oh, excellent suggestion, DS! Wish I'd thought of that one for my list.

    Yes, I was just a tiny bit toasted last night when I did mine. I'm amazed I was able to think of one!

    I try to avoid movies containing bugs unless they're cute and profound bugs like Jiminy Cricket! :)

    Beth F said...

    Oh too good to add the LOTR in there! Yucky gigantic spider.

    great idea for a post today. Yeah, I agree with you on Honey I Shrunk the kids and of course Lord of the Rings. And Jimney is probably the cutest cricket advisor around though the one in mulan gives him a run for his money. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

    Good list. Having realised that all the movies featuring insects I could come up with I'd actually never seen (Microcosmos, Joe's Apartment, Them!, Eight-Legged Freaks), I finally managed to come up with and post a list of movies I had seen.

    Great suggestions. I couldn't think of any nice bugs (that you hadn't thought of).

    Mine is here: http://www.endomental.com/2010/02/monday-movie-meme_08.html

    I have to vote for Joe's Apartment. Nothing beats cockroaches performing an Esther Williams tribute in a toilet bowl :)
