ON MOVIES ~ Up, Up And Away...

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 Flight...

Guess what?! Spring has finally arrived in Boston! We spent part of a lovely weekend at a kite festival fundraiser for autism trying to get our kites up in the air for more than two seconds. Eventually, with the help of a kind stranger, some gusty wind and lots of luck we succeeded in making those kites fly high in the air. Flight is something humans have been fascinated with for a long time. The movies are filled with flying dreams and realities. Here are a few examples we came up with. Share on your blog films focused on flight, things that fly or become airborne, linking back here so that others can find you. 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.

When I think of movies regarding flying, I naturally think of Top Gun.

The Birds was a very clever addition to your list! I only one, but it's an excellent one (inspired by your kite tale).

Good list. "Catch Me If You Can" is among the few that I've seen off of this list and was the first movie that I thought of when reading your post. Since it's already taken, I added two and a half (the half was only mentioned and does not get as much attention as the first two because well....I should've been dressed and out for the day already!) that are all about flying.

I have to go to the city for a doctor's appointment today & don't have the time to write up a post now. Since I don't know when I'll be back, I thought I'd post some films here:

Up ~ the animated film

Radio Flyer

Dumbo

Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Fun theme! Yay Spring!

All of these movies are great!

Amy, Radio Flyer is one of my favorite films growing up; such a great one :)

My list is posted, and always enjoy the themes of different movie genres each week. Check my picks HERE.

I love every movie in your list (except maybe superman--I'm not a fan of superhero flicks) Star Wars is an awesome pick. I love the theme this week. Sounds like you had a good weekend. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on
