5 movies I will never get sick of…..

It’s been almost a month since I have written anything. Well……at least one thing I can say, this “30 day blog challenge” may go into the record books for the longest 30 day blog challenge EVER. LOL! So I guess we will get right to it…..

*These are in no particular order;

  1. Halloween; THIS ONE HAS TO BE THE ORIGINAL! You can not just jump into the most recent and expect to appreciate the wonders of where it evolved from. There is no one that can terrify me to the very depths of my soul like Michael Myers. NO ONE! The more recent remakes by the brilliance of Rob Zombie are also great but you have to start at the actual beginning to appreciate the journey.
  2. Texas Chainsaw Massacre; This is another that HAS TO BE THE ORIGINAL! These are classics from when “horror” really started. Rumor has it, it’s a true story and it is, but it is a compilation of several real life serial killers rolled into one. But even as a little kid, just the thought that this could have been remotely true story shook my soul.
  3. Amittyville Horror; This again, HAS TO BE THE ORIGINAL! You cannot appreciate where you are if you don’t know where you have come from. The original was SUPER hyped up, and half of it isn’t even true, but the possibility that it “could” be true is enough to keep anyone awake at night wondering.
  4. The Shining; If there is ever a remake, it will always be the original for me (obviously). Not even the series from 1997 can do the movie justice. No one breathing on this planet can replicate Jack Nicholson yelling, “Heeeeerrs’s Johnny!!” wielding a butcher knife, breaking down the bathroom door. The fear that that one scene had on me made the entire movie worth watching. Wendy Torrance (Shelley Duvall) trapped, only seconds away from being murdered, by the man she trusts, makes my skin crawl. The way he snapped scares the hell out of me, and I don’t think you need any convincing that this is a VERY real reality of the world.
  5. Split; Directed by one of my absolute favorites besides Rob Zombie; M. Night Shyamalan. I love all of his movies because they provoke deep thinking, hidden messages and puzzling story lines. This movie will have you questioning your own sanity, and the sanity of those around you within the first few minutes of the opening credits. Right when you think you have it all figured out…..you don’t. The main character James McAvoy, hailing out of Scotland, is BRILLIANT! I literally was yelling throughout the movie….”IF THIS GUY DOESN’T WIN EVERY DAMN AWARD EVER KNOWN TO MAN FOR THIS ROLL, I WILL FREAK OUT! WAIT, REWIND THAT!!” I am a SUPER picky person when it comes to horror movies and the acting in them. I love me some “B” movies but when it comes from someone with the credits and resume of M. Night Shyamalan the standards are EXTREMELY high, and I totally expect them to be met. They were. The real question here is, how in the hell is Shyamalan going to beat this? Is that even possible……………………………………………

Hi there, and Welcome! My name is Beth and this is my little corner of the world. This blog is for all who struggle with the daily whirlwind of life. I want this to be a place for escape, even if only for a moment. This is a photography and "lifestyle" blog of sorts, one through pictures and small snippets of my thoughts and my world to go along with it.   I don't pretend to have all the answers, but I speak on what I know, and there is always something to be learned from every day you open your eyes. I believe that everyone has a purpose in this life, and mine is to ease as many souls as possible through my photography and writing. My sincerity is authentic, and my words are heartfelt.  I have lived all over the United States from North Carolina, to California, and from Illinois, and finally resting here in Houston, Texas. What started as a vacation to the Houston area turned out to be the best move we have ever made. My tires hit the pavement and I knew I was "home". When your soul is at peace everything in life becomes clearer and less confusing, so that alone, I know will help when conveying what I need to say here.  This Blog is about real life, real hardships, the laughs, the tears, and the ways to keep your head up when it feels like the world is against you. Taking a picture is like pushing the "pause" button on life, and when done, that split second becomes magical relating your message without saying a word. Seeing the world through someone else's eyes, I believe, helps us as individuals open our hearts and our minds to peek into the souls of our neighbors. I am not "PC" by any means, this is real life, real thoughts, and real experiences, so if you have questions, or something to say, by all means say it or feel free to contact me with questions or comments. Thanks for visiting and happy reading. ❤📕💻📸
