A-Z challenge: B




We are at B. But not those kind of B movies. Though I do enjoy those immensely :)

I have two here today. Two very different movies that bring pure joy in different ways.

The first, Better Off Dead, the 80's classic that made John Cusack one of my favorites. Watch as he tries to win back the girl that dumps him for the captain of the ski team. Watch his mother try to cook. See the paperboy want his two dollars! TWO DOLLARS! :)

It's just plain 80's fun:)


Charles De Mar: Buck up little camper, we'll beat that slope together.



The other is well, just stunning.  The Black Stallion. It sweeps you up and takes you along. The picture looks beautiful. The story is simple and sweet. 
Boy and horse save each other. At sea. On land. At home,

I can not count how many times I've seen this. Really. I have no idea. So many. And still it pulls me in everytime.

  3. Haven't seen the Cusack movie and he's one of my favorite actors. Black Stallion I have seen and it's a beautiful film.

  5. Better Off Dead is one of my all-time favorites. The paper boy scenes never get old.
