Movie Madness

Blame Marie's daughter-in-law Lisa for this one. I was taking a quick look at Facebook before lying down for a nap. The nap wasn't for sloth, but necessity. Trent has been dealing with an icky cold for about a week and my throat decided to get a bit of the action. Lisa had commented on a post by a radio station. I didn't see her comment as I had no energy to wade through the thousands that were there. The post said, "Name a movie that does not have the letter "S" in it!" They added that it was harder than you think. Seriously? Even in my feverish state I was coming up with tons of them.

When I woke from my nap, I started thinking of more titles. Enough titles to make me decide to share them here. I have already forgotten many of the original titles I came up with, and come up with some new ones. Trent was kind enough to tell me more to write down, and to say them so fast that I couldn't keep up with writing them down. And saying, "Did you get it?" I got irritated because I couldn't write fast enough, but I still love you, honey. So here is a list of some, but not all, of the movies we thought up in just a few minutes' time. I have already forgotten lots of the ones I came up with earlier. There were some movies I just had to refuse to put down because I thought they were bad movies, so forgive me for that. And this is not meant as a comprehensive list! I am not a film historian, just a movie lover. There may be some movies that you like that aren't on the list. That is the fun of it, you get to remember more. If I made any errors by not using the complete official titles, I ask your forgiveness, and if I left off some of your favorites, they can be at the top of your list! Above all else, let's just have fun and share this game with family, friends, and coworkers!
