And the Oscar goes to…

Best Actor: Errol Flynn as Robin Hood in The Adventures of Robin Hood.

Best Quote: Marian Fitzwalter: “Why, you speak treason!” Robin Hood: “Fluently.”


The 2014 movie needs an explanation. You would think that I’d have made a point to watch Guardians of the Galaxy, and really I did. I picked up my ten-year-old son from camp and gave him a surprise: “We’re going to the movies!” He was excited, but as we sat in the theater I could tell he was also tired. Half-way through the movie I looked at Lukey, saw how exhausted and distracted he was and realized he was really only there for me. I decided the right thing to do would be to offer to leave. He took me up on my offer and we left the theater (Which I believe was a first for me.). I’ve been meaning to finish it, but I just haven’t yet. So, suffice to say I haven’t seen the sequel either.
