Loved Him Then, Love Him Now, HARRISON FORD

LeAnn, this one is in your honor.   Let me begin by saying how much fun it is to research these posts.   Trying to find pictures for Loved Him Then, Love Him Now, is truly a trip down memory lane.   It took me back to the age of ten when my Dad brought home a Star Wars book and movie poster.  It was different than anything I’d seen before.   It took me to LeAnn’s room after seeing  The Empire Strikes Back, we were talking to a boy on the phone – Can’t remember which one though , and I shared my favorite lines in the movie, Leia to Han: “I love you” Han “I know”.    Still one of my favorites and actually use it in reverse in my work in progress.   Thank you George Lucas and Company.   Then came Indiana Jones ahhhh Indy.  Flash forward to 1984  Temple of Doom with my high school boyfriend Matt.    Working Girl,   The Fugitive,  and Patriot Games  Good memories.   Next significant memory Six Days, Six Nights with Rhode Island Rob from the internet.   Most recently I got to share Indiana Jones with my kid on the big screen in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.  Thanks Harrison for sharing my journey with me and taking me back.    So folks here he is from American Graffiti to Patriot Games, the incredible Harrison Ford.










Movies From Books

What are your thoughts? Best done? Worst done? Most true to the book? Most strayed away? I love the Harry Potter books and movies. I think the adaptations to the big screen have been nearly as well done as they possibly could be. Casting has been fabulous. Casting brings me to the adaptation I have not been able to bring myself to watch. I read all the Twilight books in about 2 weeks. I had a picture of him in my head that is far far away from Robert Pattinson. I like the Edward in my head and don’t want to spoil it. Gone With the Wind. Even in four hours you couldn’t include the whole book, I think they did a good job even though they did cut out Scarlett’s other kids. Hunt For Red October big thumbs up. Patriot Games Okay. Clear and Present Danger, I don’t think so. Those are the biggies that come to mind at the moment. I have to include Bond here. I must admit, I haven’t read the books. Which Bond movie and/or actor do you think portrays Ian Fleming’s Bond the best?
