Welcome back to Monthly Movie Musings.
The movie title prompt for the month of August is:
This 1994 film starring Nicolas Cage (and how yummy he looked in that dinner jacket!) and Bridget Fonda is one of my all-time favorite “feel good” movies. Click on the movie title above for more details about this film.
If you’ve never seen this movie, it’s definitely worth the time. It’s not only fun and entertaining to watch, it also has some important reminders about the virtues of “doing the right thing” even when it’s the harder route to take. If you have children, it’s also a great choice for family viewing. I find it so discouraging and disturbing to see the shelves in video stores piled with violent movies that just seem to keep on coming. What kind of message is this sending to children? Frightening…
I will include the link to last month’s prompt and my post. Not a lot of participants for this one, but I did receive some great feedback via comments and emails re: my experiences with the spirit world, which I shared briefly in this post. I will write a more indepth post about some past experiences with the “other side” in the near future. All have been memorable and life-changing.
In the meantime, I look forward to your interpretations of the August prompt. Perhaps the third time is the charm. I really had hoped that MMM would fly…maybe it just took a big red balloon!
If you’ve seen the movie, you will understand.
Happy Weekend and Writing!
PS: Question for WP bloggers. This post is taking a LONG time to write because WP keeps logging me out for no reason. I look down at the bottom of the screen and there’s the warning again that I am logged out! Are any of you having this happen? I don’t know why but I wish it would stop.
