You picked some wonderful choices. I've never seen The Lion in Winter, but now I'm curious!

Lydia it has a great cast. It is intense.

Great selections. Love the Princess Bride and Fifth Element selections, and clearly I'll have to look up The Lion In Winter.

Aymee said...

I love that first quote. It sounds like something I'd say, to be honest. Hahaha. The Fifth Element is such a great movie, too.

P M Prescott said...

Glad you like it, Aymee.

Great selection - loads of Princess Bride quotes this week, think I'm due a re-watch!

Marianne Arkins said...

My kid and I were talking about Shakespeare today, and how quotable (and full of humor and hidden innuendo) it is.

And, I'm glad to see more "Princess Bride"!

P M Prescott said...

It's a popular movie, Catherine. Full of good quotes.

P M Prescott said...

Shakespeare is just the best, Marianne. So is Princess Bride.
