Monday Movie Meme

This week's movie topic is all about Surprise Endings...

Psycho is the first movie I can remember seeing with such a twist, surprise ending!

Then there was Planet of the Apes. Who saw that one coming?

My mind was totally blown by the twist in Sixth Sense! While we're on M. Night Shymalon, how about The Village or Signs?

Soylent Green
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Secret Window
Field of Dreams

and one of my all time favorites: The Sting

10 songs that sum up your weekend...or were on your weekend playlist...and one picture that relates back. (oh, and if you feel like it, tell us why you picked the songs you did)

1. "Pressure" by Billy Joel
2. "Running Against the Wind" by Bob Seger
3. "Rainy Days & Mondays" by the Carpenters
4. "Raindrops Keep Fallin On My Head" by BJ Thomas
5. "Fire & Rain" by James Taylor
6. "Our House" by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
7. "Riders on the Storm" by the Doors
8. "Don't Stop" by Fleetwood Mac
9. "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor
10. "Calling All Angels" by Train

I don't have a picture from the weekend that relates back but as for why: it was a wild and crazy weekend and I felt stressed Friday and Saturday. It was very rainy and nasty Friday into Saturday. On Sunday, though, the sun came out and my spirits lifted. I called in all my angels, didn't stop believing and I will survive, LOL!

The Sting!!! Great choice! One of my favorites as well. Why didn't Redford and Newman make any more films together after that? They were such a great team.

I've seen maybe half of the movies on your list-- of which The Sixth Sense, Field of Dreams and The Sting are among my favorites. My list is here.

As for your other lists...buying books and DVDs/CDs are definitely at top of my fave list, but like you I dislike clothes shopping. Shoe shopping is even worse.

It also seems your weather is as gloomy and overcast as mine. The sun finally came out Saturday afternoon, but by 2pm Sunday had disappeared again, with rain all of today.
