Our Summer Movie selections

The votes have been tallied and here are our summer picks.

Our June Summer Blockbuster will be .... Raiders of the Lost Ark

Our July Guilty Pleasure is a choice between Dirty Dancing and 10 Things I Hate about You

Our August Wester is a choice between Tombstone and The Magnificent Seven

I'll have links up for Raiders by the end of the week, and a discussion post to get us started. I'll have to show you all an old movie poster for Raiders that RM and I have up in our living room too. Hey, we're movie buffs! We decorate with the movies. *grin*

Summer Movie Nominations!

I can't believe it's time to choose movies again. I think this time, we're going to nominate movies for June, July and August. So without further ado, here's the themes:

June - Summer Blockbusters! Let's watch an action/adventure movies together. As the weather gets warmer, I start thinking of all the fun, summer movies out there. Superhero movies, action, adventure, Sci Fi, mystery, thriller, big budgets, big stars, let's go big!

July - Guilty Pleasure picks. Do you have a movie that is a secret guilty pleasure? Nominate it, and share with the rest of us.

August - Westerns. There's something about summer that makes me want to spend some time on the range. There are so many choices out there, let's watch some together!

Nominate one or two films for each month in the comments of this post. Nominations will be collected through Monday, May 21st. Voting will begin on Tuesday May 22 and will continue until May 29th, with our selections posted by the end of the month.

Notorious Talk

I'm planning on watching Notorious this week. I've seen it before, but it's been a while. Let's start our conversation in the comments of this post. If you have any thoughts, observations, questions, or discussion topics, please comment! I'll post for Murder on the Orient Express as well.

Does anyone have any pattern ideas for Ingrid Bergman as well? Let us know what you're working on, even if it isn't related to the film. I'm interested in what you work on while watching!
