Movie Night: My Dog Skip

July 8 2017:

Team TLC movie night: Lillian’s choice: “My Dog Skip” –

Lillian says, “Good, pretty music, emotional, awesome, and my favorite character is Rivers.”

I say, “Love and loyalty are all that matters. Such a great movie. And, WOW! Yazoo, Mississippi! I wonder if any of my family knew Willie Morris. He would have been a tad older than them. Saw a Jitney Jungle sign in the baseball scene. That brought back memories. Will have to look up more about Willie Morris and his books. Really enjoyed this one!!”

Thomas says, “Good, funny, and I liked it.”

“Haven’t watched these since I was a teenager. It has a completely different meaning for me now and it absolutely blows my mind the difference in watching it now, as opposed to then.

Not a fan of movies with violence, yet, decided to watch the original trilogy now that Thomas and Lillian are older. Made my solar plexus all tingly! The Force is indeed strong! So glad we are watching them!”

Team TLC Movie Night – Thomas’ choice: Star Wars IV – A New Hope

Thomas says: “Good and it’s weird how they used to think the graphics were awesome.”

Lillian says, “Good, adventurous, dramatic, suspenseful, liked the score.”

I say, “I’m not a fan of movies with violence so had put this off until Thomas and Lillian were older. Yet, this movie was huge for me as my best friend Lillie and I watched it over and over and over.

We had lines and scenes memorized. We joined the fan club. It was adhesive in our friendship bond. I didn’t go past Return of the Jedi, but Lillie stayed with it!!! She’s a hard core fan!!

I do get something out of the movie that I didn’t at that time. The Force has an entirely different meaning for me now.”
