ON MOVIES ~ Prison Break...

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 Prison Movies...

I realized this weekend who George Clooney reminds me of. That handsome devil with the wry smile, approachable personality the guys want to hang with and the girls want to get with, dancing eyes filled with mischief and talent to play dramatic and comedic roles? He is a modern day Paul Newman. They both also happen to have starred in terrific movies about being locked up and busting out. Here are some of our favorite prison movies. Share on your blog movies you've enjoyed featuring jail time or the escape from them, linking back here at The Bumbles. However - NO SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION ALLOWED - that is a slam-dunk automatic (I'm talking to you, Sandy). And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
 Do you have a topic to suggest to the Monday Movie Meme? Or would you like to guest host? Let us know in the Comments section or send us an e-mail.

Excuse me? But everybody knows Shawshank is the best prison movie ever!!!!! Party poopers. Just to show you that I indeed can come up with a list without Shawshank and not use your selections, here are mine!

I had a hard thinking of one, but was finally able to think of 4. =)

Here's mine.

Have you seen Scorsese's recent film Shutter Island? It's good! As a B-movie :)

Last year's Oscar nominee Un Prophète is pretty impressive -- or should I say depressive? ;)

But my favourite would definitely be the cult classic Birdy!

These are the first that come to mind... you never know what I may come up with later!

Dammit! Sandy beat me to it. Shawshank Redemption is awesome. Since I have to pick something else I'll go with The Green Mile.

Huh, both written by Stephen King, right?

Been a while since I joined in, but I'm back again this week with my choices.

Thanks as always for hosting the meme!

Cool Hand Luke -- I couldn't not list it. But I resisted including Dead Man Walking (another of my favorites) and came up with another choice ... Great topic!

gnoegnoe said...

Okay, so now I've posted about it too!

Lindsey said...

I'm UP. Enjoyed, as usual :)

Amy said...

This is fun topic, Molly and Andy!

You've listed one of my favorite movies, "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?, I was watching it this weekend!
Cool Hand Luke and Dead Man Walking are awesome, too.

It took some thinking on my part but my list is up now!
Amy's Monday Movies

Hope you like them!

I like all of those--I would probably add "The Green Mile" starring Tom Hanks. That was one weird prison flick. And I might also add "Silence of the Lambs". That one was pretty horrible.

Kathleen said...

Glad to see you included Cool Hand Luke. I just watched this one again over the weekend and was reminded what a phenomenal job that Paul Newman did in the film.

My Prison Movie Favorites

Julie said...

I LOVE O Brother, Where Art Thou! My list is up :)

ds said...

No wonder Sandy called you party poopers ;) Yay, O Brother, Where Art Thou? (a slamdunk for sound track also, in my opinion) :D
With deep sighs for Paul Newman and George Clooney...
