March Inklings 2021: Mirror Scene in Friendly Persuasion

I’m once again joining Heidi’s Inklings linkup. This time it is a mirror scene, Harry Potter of course popped into my head, I used that for the first and also thought of it for the 2nd and will apparently continue to think of it first, but I’ve used my allotted amount. In reading Heidi’s for… Continue reading March Inklings 2021: Mirror Scene in Friendly Persuasion

National Treasure and the American Revolution

We decided to rewatch National Treasure again last week (for the first time in awhile, I’ve lost track of the rewatches). This movie is one of the good ones. Feel good cheesy Patriotism and history.

Since I seem to be either criticizing or incoherently fangirling or only noting a few details when I write about movies, I thought I’d better look up some more formal guidelines for movie reviewing. I found two printouts from the Thompson… Continue reading A Celebration of Classic Hollywood Week: Film Review of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

How to Steal a Million (1966)

This post contains SPOILERS. ************ With my accent I have trouble pronouncing “steal” so near to “million” in the same sentence. I want to say, “How to Still a Million.” I was somewhat confused as to how I was supposed to pronounce “million.” I normally pronounce “steal” as “stEEl” and “million” as “millyen.” If you… Continue reading How to Steal a Million (1966)
