Six-Word Description


One of your 20 comments may be just six words, instead of 20 words. Your six-word comment must describe one of the films we viewed. It must be exactly six words, but can use any kind of punctuation. It can be one phrase of six words, two phrases of three words, three phrases of two words--any combination is possible. It can even be six separate words. You must post it here. See my example to help you try it. (This is a famous way to express yourself with few words, but much thought.)

Favorite Scene or Quote from Each Film


What is your favorite scene or quote from each film? What is cool about this scene or quote?
(This picture is a fan favorite from Titanic, because it begins the romance; creates the conflict; makes women viewers swoon; and shows men how to be emotional. Earlier I think, Jack stands on the front tip of the ship saying he is "King of the World!" Pretty cool movie-making. Titanic won/was nominated for the most awards ever, I think.)
