Is there anyone out there that doesn't love the onset of fall weather? I do miss the changing leaves and the sweater weather of the Midwest, but even down here in sticky, humid Florida, we are getting a slight change of seasons. We are having cooler nights, and what is this? A high only in the low 80's?
The Bumbles love this time of year too. So much that they had a fall theme for their wedding. So in honor of the smell of burning leaves, a nip in the air, and Bumble nuptials, we are asked to talk about our favorite fall movies.
Only I am struck dumb, and I fall flat on my movie-loving face before you. There seems to be plenty of Thanksgiving-ish, fall-ish movies out there, but I haven't seen them. So here is my lame list:
1. When Harry Met Sally - I can't get the shot out of my mind: Harry and Sally finally realizing that they are friends as they walk through New York (Central Park I'm guessing) with fall leaves blowing around their feet. Love this movie.
2. It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown - no wise cracks. Watching this movie is a fall tradition! The idea of the Great Pumpkin actually scared me when I was little.
3. Legends of the Fall - It was the power of suggestion, and because the Bumbles named this week's theme after this Brad Pitt movie, I can't get it out of my head. I can't seem to recall if the movie has anything to do with the fall weather, but it is the perfect showcase for everything there is to love about Pitt's bare chest.
4. Hannah and Her Sisters - I seem to remember this movie taking place around Thanksgiving. I'm not a big fan of Woody Allen the person, but his movies generally rock.
Alright friends. Help me out here! What am I missing? Obviously I need to brush up in this area!
