I don't mind all sorts of weather. In fact I quite like walking in some of the more inclement types of weather as long as I'm prepared.
I don't mind sun. I don't mind rain (although drizzle annoys me sometimes). I don't mind snow. Even hail doesn't really bother me.
But what I hate weather wise is wind. I'm not talking about a slight breeze on a warm day. I'm talking about when there is a strong wind that is incessant. It batters you, tries to snatch things off you and blows your hair into your eyes and mouth.
It is taking place on 19th September 2011... bet you can't guess what you have to do?
Yes you've guessed it, post a list of 10 of the worst movies you have ever seen. Now I have to decide - do I include the films that I stopped watching 20 minutes in? For all I know it might have been brilliant after that (I don't stop watching films after 20 minutes very often - I like to give them a chance - but with some films it is just too painful).
The Novel Film Blogfest is here!!!! As hosted by Madeleine over at Scribble And Edit.
Here's what it's all about:
"There's a lot of novels, comics and plays that have been made into films and TV dramas, BUT how many of them have you BOTH seen the film/TV drama and read the original book, play or comic story?"
When I first discovered this blogfest I could only think of about three off the top of my head. But now... well you'll find out. Due to the length of my list I have forgone descriptions and pictures... I'd be here forever.
So here is my list, in no specific order - the bits in brackets are when the title was changed for the film. And yes a couple of these are novelisations of films... slightly cheating but... who cares?
