ON MOVIES ~ Movie Madness...

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 Insanity...

In case you hadn't noticed, there is a little college basketball tournament this month called March Madness. It is so named because of the format pitting higher seeded teams against the underdogs with a "one and done" elimination game allowing the winner to advance to the next level until there are only 2 teams remaining to battle it out for the championship. With a large amount of teams competing in the first round it is wall to wall basketball on multiple channels taking place all over the country. And with lots of Cinderalla stories causing upsets along the way it gets crazy. Thus the March "Madness" moniker. This madness is fun to watch. In the movies, madness can be entertaining to watch too. Sometimes scary, sometimes sad and sometimes madcap fun. Here are some examples we came up with. Share on your blog movies that feature maniacs, lunatics, psychos, crazed behavior or mentally tortured souls. 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.

Girl Interrupted is a good choice. I'm still creeped out by the memory of Angelina Jolie "talking" through an incongruously sweet handpuppet. (Was it a kitten?) And I love The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, too. Poor Julianne Moore has such bad luck in that one ...

Mine are up.

I had no problems with this one! I'm not sure what that says about me, except that madness draws madness! But I cannot believe you STOLE THE SHINING from me! No fair!

This was a fun theme! I'm not much for basketball but had no trouble coming up with "Madness' in film...and I managed not to re-list The Shining probably because of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest!
The Hand that Rocks the Cradle & WHat About Bob? are inspired choices, great movies, too!

Nicole/Blog Post Title: Insane Movies to Never Forget said...

Shutter Island and Girl, Interrupted are fitting choices for this week's movie topic.

I listed three other movies on my recent blog post for this monday meme:

No movies come to mind, but March Madness is running rampant in my home. My bracket, blown to you know where. Only team I have left is UCONN.

Susan said...

I loved Shutter Island and I really had no idea until the very end. I guess I was really caught up in it and wasn't analyzing. Scorcese and DiCaprio...what a team!!

Lisa said...

"Son of Sam" came to mind first for me, although I suppose it might be cheating a bit to pick a movie based on a real event.
