My hero is Pippi Longstocking, but I don't know what my favourite movie is. I didn't see the movie of Pippi Longstocking, didn't want to take the risk.

I love the Red Violin for music and for drama, but there are so many great movies it is hard to make a choice. (We are movie buffs here.) Love the films of the Golden Age of Hollywood. I am with the others on all the films mentioned so far.

I just started reading your blog--which is delightful--and wish you lots and lots of good wishes with your weight loss.

talitka said...

dear Danita, it's such a great tradition you have with this giveaway! every time you announce your giveaway, I have a breathtaking feeling like in my childhood.. but I'm always shy to try a luck.. but let it be... unfortunately,
I don't remember the name of the movie, it's a japanese story about people, who die and come to some place looking like hospital or library but it's a purgatory.. and they have about a week to remember their entire lives and choose only one moment - and in this moment they will exist after death in eternity. somebody choose his fisrt kiss, someone - first steps of his baby, and so on. but few people can not decide what to choose, and they live there in this purgatory and help others untill they finally make a decision.
I don't know why, but this story touch me more and more I think about it.
thank you for your kindness.

Shelia said...

yay! thanks for pointing me to your give-away. and congratulations on your weight loss. i have been very absent from blog reading so i will have to check back and see what you are up to. now, favorite movie! oh my that is very difficult. i would have to say that my favorite movie would be a home movie of my children. these always have a happy ending. but in a more mainstream movie i love the secret of roan inish, brazil, west side story, to kill a mockingbird and the list goes on and on. mostly old movies because after the kids came i turned back to books instead. xo-kelly

Congrats Danita! Always remember that muscle is heavier than fat...some people say you shouldn't even use a scale at first so you don't get discouraged when don't see your weight change or sometimes you even gain some...but remember it's all muscle NOT FAT! Anyways I am a BIG fan...LOVE your work...YOU GO GIRL!
My favorite movies are those lighthearted romantic comedies like Sweet Home Alabama; You've Got Mail; Devil Wears Prada...

Cris said...

Hi! I've been reading your blog for awhile but have never written until now. I admire your art work and am happy for your accomplishments with your weight loss. My favorite movie has to be the one I can make it through Christmas without--It's A Wonderful Life!

Jamie said...

I'm so glad to hear about your progress... great news! As for a favorite movie - very tough. I would say I love a good western - yet, I like old classics - I suppose there are a few new movies I like as well. Mamma Mia was great; I love Harry Potter movies and Lord of the Rings - but Sound of Music and True Grit make me cry everytime! James Bond movies (with Sean Connery...) Ok, I'll stop - Jamie V in MT

Eveline said...

There are so many films I love, but one of my favourites is 80's film Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I watched it a million times with my best friend in school, we used to quote lines to each other, and I named my cat after it. Sadly, I had to leave Ferris with my ex when I moved to the UK....

munieca said...
