Movie Monday

Gentle Friends there are two movies I wanted to mention to day one that is available and one that is to be released fro Christmas, December 20th.

The film that is available now is called "Into the White" - 2012 - starring David Kross, Stig Henrik Hoff, Florian Lukas and Rupert Grint.

Here is a short bit about the plot from Wikipedia.... " On 27 April 1940, Luftwaffe pilot Horst Schopis' bomber, a Heinkel He 111 is shot down near Grotli, Norway, by a Fleet Air Arm Blackburn Skua fighter, which then crash-lands. The surviving German and British crew members begin to shoot at each other, but later must share the same cabin to survive the harsh, Norwegian winter. An unlikely, lifelong friendship blossoms between the pilots."  

I really enjoyed this film and the interaction of the characters.  It was beautifully filmed in Norway and Sweden.

The second film is one that is coming out in December, called "Saving Mr. Banks" starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson.  The film is about the back story of bringing "Mary Poppins" 1964 to life on film.  Here is the recently released trailer for the film....

As you might remember I am a big fan of most things Disney....  and to prove that here's a snap from a few years ago of Rico and myself at Disneyland riding the log ride at Splash Mountain....

.... we are in the back of the "log", I haven't a clue who the two women in front of us are but they were having as good a time as we did!!  Can't wait for this film!!!

There you go sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. We saw the trailer for "Saving Mr Banks" at the theater this weekend. It looks terrific. I came home and marked the calendar for the release date. We saw "RED 2". It was as mindlessly enjoyable and campy as the first one. Good cast - you can't go wrong with a John Malkovich movie in my opinion! Have a good Monday.

  2. A super pic of you and Rico.
    I'll look out for these movies.

  3. I am excited about Mr. Banks...Tom Hanks as Walt Disney...sounds wonderful and saw the trailer online. And I just want to say in addition to your stitching and baking, I really appreciate your movie reviews. There are some that I have now taken the time to watch based on your review!

  4. I can't wait for Saving Mr. Banks either!!!! lol! I didn't know the release date -- now I do. So exciting! Love the pic of you and Rico on the log ride. I used to love log rides!

  5. Oh wow! I hadn't heard of the "Saving Mr. Banks" film. It sounds great. Will definitely be on the watch for that to open. Splash Mountain pic is great. I've always been too chicken to ride it. :-)

  6. John & I are looking forward to the Mr. Banks film : )
