  23. Horrible Bosses 2 (2014) - Don't judge me, I only watched it because it happened to be on TV, meaning it was a "clean" version, and it has Chris Pine in it

  25. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016) - Eva Green
  26. Mission Impossible 5: Rogue Nation (2016) - Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner

Least Favorite: Mama Steps Out (1937)

Favorite (new to me) Film: When in Rome (1952) - also Unstoppable (2010) & Sea Wife (1957). If you follow my Facebook page I shared some screenshots of  Rome from When in Rome.

Paul Douglas (a con-man masquerading as a priest in Rome during the 1950 Holy Door)
and Van Johnson (as an actual priest) hiding in the Coliseum. This film was surprisingly
touching and very accurate in it's portrayal of the Catholic faith.

My 300th post!!

  1. Congratulations on your 300th post.

    I adore The Wackiest Ship in the Army, especially when Jack and Ricky team up on Do You Know What It Mean to Miss New Orleans. Makes me smile.
