Thursday May 30th 2014

Dear Mrs Matlock,
I am writing this letter on behalf of Tracy  AKA THE LIFE AND TIMES AT EDEN HOUSE .
Tracy is scared to write herself as she missed the last couple of her film favourites and now has come to this round nine of Alphabet Thursday  late .
I know that she was planning to do words for this round I personally think this is an Absolutely Brilliant idea as she has such a good command of the English language.
Anyway Before anymore excuses are made I will sign off and once again apologise for her absence .
Tracy promises to return next week for letter C .
Au revoir I am just going to deliver this or you at your blog Jenny ,will have a peep at. What's been said so far.
God Bless
And Bye for now

Lights camera action Catch up .

Ok I really do not know where the last few weeks have gone .
I have missed S,T,U and V of round eight of my favourite blog so instead of my previous format this time I am just going to list my own personal favourite films.


Saving Private Ryan 

This is a 1998 film set on the beaches of Normandy,France depicting the Omaha beach invasion 6th June 1944 .
A few years I went to beach with family and we then watched the film it made it all  so much more real.


Ok if you are a regular reader you will know that I have had the dilemma on a weekly basis of films that have 
at the start of the title .
So this letter is any number of films .
The sound of music being my favourite.

Not much choice here so gone for Uncle Buck way back in 1989 Just a good wholesome comedy.

For this one I am going back to 1961
Voyage to the bottom of the sea. 
I seem to have a vague recollection of watching.

Wow I have caught up mm now what can I go for 
Watership Down - 1978  now where have those years gone, maybe that's due for a remake.
Wallace and Grommit  - always a good film  started in 1993

So that's me all caught up.
Not very colourful and sorry no pictures.
I promise to return to normal service next week.
Please pop over and see Dear Jenny over in class.

Lights Camera Action ......Q

Alphabet Thursday is my internet passion I stumbled across it during round 1 and have been on the journey ever since although I wont get 100% attendance for the 8 Rounds but I hope to get 100% for Round 8.
I thought when I came to this letter I would really struggle as the only film I could think of had THE before it , but actually there were quite a few. the only one I had heard of was  Quadrophenia (1979) which I have heard of but never seen..
Then I came upon this on the list.

I copied this from Wiki just to give a brief accurate outline. 

Quantum of Solace (2008) is the twenty-second James Bond film produced by Eon Productions, and is the direct sequel to the 2006 film Casino Royale. Directed by Marc Forster, it features Daniel Craig's second performance as James Bond. In the film, Bond seeks revenge for the death of his lover, Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), and is assisted byCamille Montes (Olga Kurylenko), who is plotting revenge for the murder of her family. The trail eventually leads them to wealthy businessman Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a member of the Quantum organisation, who intends to stage a coup d'├ętat in Bolivia to seize control of that country's water supply.

How on earth could I have not remembered this without the aid of Wiki, I love James Bond  obviously not as much as I say. 

So that is it my contribution to round 8 , I am off now to see Miss Jenny in class see you there .

Lights, Camera, Action.......R

OK here we are on round eight of alphabet Thursday Letter R . Now for those that have followed me this round will know that I am looking at films. Now mostly I will have watched and given you my thoughts. There may be the odd one or two that I know nothing about it in which case i use good old Google , IMBD or Wiki .

This week

This week I have decided that my favourite on this list is ..........

The richest kid in the world, Richie Rich, has everything he wants, except companionship. While representing his father at a factory opening, he sees some kids playing baseball across the street. Richie wants to join in, but they don't want him around. When a plot to kill the Rich family is devised by Rich Industries' top executive, Laurence Van Dough, Richie must take over control of the company while searching for his lost parents with the help of some new friends.

So there you have it my selection for this week. I hope you have a good week. I am now off to see Miss Jenny in Class just polishing my apple. 

For Miss Jenny
