Six Degrees of Separation Blogathon

My nephews with whom I hang out at summer vacations every year (besides this one, because they’ve grown up and apparently want to work) used to watch MTV a lot. I sat there, too. I could survive it all.

Until one dreadful night.

They had discovered Jersey Shore. I don’t like reality TV, but that was something different. Something much, much more horrifying. And that wasn’t the end. Next summer, they were watching Geordie Shore. I had forgotten about the horrors imposed on me. All that came running back to me when m.brown of the ever-cool Two Dollar Cinema passed me the baton on  the Six Degrees of Separation Blogathon. Connect Shirley Temple with Pauly Shore.

One could understand my mistake, right? It was like a bad dream. Until, a few nights ago, I looked up that new version of Jersey Shore. Well, turns out, Pauly Shore is an actor who’s been in many films that m.brown has probably seen. My bad. (I think he might be his favourite actor, too.)

Well, here goes, my contribution to Nostra’s awesome relay:

  • Shirley Temple and Michael Sheen were both in Shooting the Hollywood Stars.
  • Michael Sheen was in Frost/Nixon with Sam Rockwell.
  • Sam Rockwell was in Seven Psychopaths with Christopher Walken.
  • Christopher Walken was in At Close Range with Chris Penn.
  • Chris Penn and the magnificent Pauly Shore were both in Pauly Shore Is Dead!

Wasn’t this fun? Sure hope the lovely Sofia at Film Flare will find this challenge as much fun (and maybe a bit less confusing) than I did! Sofia will show you how Pauly Shore and the beautiful Elle Fanning are connected.

And again, my apologies to anyone who consider mr. Shore an idol. (I think there is one person. And he’s reading this blog. Maybe two?) I almost put a halo on him.

 

Atonement (2007)

I’ve always known Atonement has a powerful ending. I had no idea in what way. But damn if this didn’t sound ominous:

Brittani’s Favorite Movie Titles Blogathon

When I saw Brittani’s post on her own favourite film titles, I asked for her to turn it into a blogathon right away. I wasn’t the only enthusiastic one and she did it! I love this idea, it’s a lot of fun and intriguing — if there’s a film called He Died With A Felafel In His Hand, you just have to see what that’s about. I’ll tell you right away, honest, that I haven’t seen some of these films here. But I’m very enthusiastic about doing so! Click on the banner for more info.

Katy’s Blockbusted Blogathon

Katy from the ever awesome Girl Meets Cinema has arranged a great blogathon to show our unbreakable bond towards a cheesy blockbuster-esque movie with a setting, story, or character that introduces or deals with something not from this ordinary realm. Well, apparently one of my favourite films is just that, so here goes! More info about the blogathon if you click on the banner above.
