Have you seen the movie Mona Lisa Smile? I missed this one when it first came out, which is kind of surprising given its stellar cast (Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, Julia Stiles, and Maggie Gyllenhaal to name a few). It’s a look at 1950s life at a women’s college, and I thought it would make the perfect Blogthings quiz, since so many of the characters are interesting and likable.
Does the phrase “You’ve Got Mail” mean anything to you? For those of us of a certain age, we never will forget that exciting phrase that was uttered every time we had mail on AOL! And those of us who were really dialed into the 90s know that this phrase was even turned into a movie starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
I didn’t really like the movie You’ve Got Mail when it came out, but it’s grown on me over the years. It’s such a sweet story, and the nostalgia appeal alone is there at this point. Plus, you can’t get much better than autumn, the holidays, and spring in New York City.
Are you a big Jane Austen fan? I definitely am, and I try to write as much Jane Austen based quizzes as I can. Despite Blogthings having quite a few Jane Austin quizzes, I was remiss in writing a Pride and Prejudice based quiz. Until today!
While I can’t say that I have a favorite Jane Austen work, Pride and Prejudice is a book I love to revisit again and again. The world of the Bennet sisters is just too compelling to ignore, and given how many movies and series have been based on the book, I suppose others agree 🙂 If you are looking for a little Pride and Prejudice kick, then check out my latest quiz: Which Bennet Sister Are You?
Take the quiz, and let me know what you get. Does it match who your favorite Bennet sister is?
Hey, happy Friday! TGIF 🙂 It’s time for the Friday Five. I thought it would be fun to do a movie themed set of questions this week. Every year around this time, I start to feel very excited about movies. Something about awards season, all the glamour, all the great movies… I love it. I hope you like movies as much as I do… and if you do, I have the Friday Five for you. I’m doing five movie themed quizzes and giving away a $10 iTunes gift card, which you can use for anything on iTunes – including renting a couple movies.
So, here are the Friday Five questions for this week. Simply answer below in a comment 🙂
