ON MOVIES ~ Summertime...

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 Summer...

Summer is in full swing and yet already there are Back To School commercials starting to pop up. While we still have a week left in July, lets think about all those films set in Summer instead of shopping for backpacks and school clothes. Here are some that we came up with. Share on your blog movies set in the summertime and link 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.

Gah! You got the two best ones...Stand By Me and Jaws! My go to movies. No worries, I can come up with some more. (Thank you for the early post!!!)

Without a shadow of a doubt Jaws is the best movie ever made. The 50 minute interaction between the three characters when they are on the boat is the most powerful piece of film ever recorded. (In my humble opinion)

My choice is a smaller budget movie than the big hits you listed. But it's a dear little film, and I'm sure if you saw it, you liked it.

I went a different route this week, but am hoping you'll help me :)

The Sandlot has always been one of my favorite movies and Jaws was a great pick too. I haven't seen the other three but judging from the comments it sounds like you picked some good ones. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

I'll skip this week, not enamored with the siubject matter this week. Hopefully back next week though. Heatwave movies were just done, bit samey...

Part of the movie The Sandlot was filmed in Ogden where I lived for many years!

Nicole said...

I haven't watched The Sandlot and Stand By Me in such a long time. Those are two great movies that are worth a repeat in the DVD player on any day. Jaws is a good one as well :)

I'm not familiar with the other two though and considered adding Leonardo DiCaprio's "The Beach" to my list but changed my mind since I still have to finish watching the rest of the movie sometime this summer when Netflix stops acting all weird with their streaming options.

I really enjoy the summertime posts, it's just hard to come up with different, interesting and unique ones, but I came up with a few that haven't been featured. Read about them HERE.

I loved Stand by Me! In fact, I never pass under an abandoned railroad trestle without thinking of that film. Thanks!

Kathleen said...

I loved The Sandlot. That was one of my son's favorite movies when he was little!

The Sandlot is best movies. This teach good lesson to our children, showing them the world island of fantasy and dreams that children create entirely outside the fields and values ​​for adults.
