My 11 Answers

  1. What famous, beloved, or iconic classic film leaves you cold, even though a lot of other people love it?

Last year, The Birds became the worst movie I saw in 2018. While this film is considered a classic by many, I was not a fan of it. To me, the movie was boring and didn’t build up to anything. I felt it was a waste of time.

 

  1. What actors are your favorite classic film couple, even if they only made one movie together?

One of my favorite movies is Portrait of Jennie. In that film, Joseph Cotten and Jennifer Jones had great on-screen chemistry! They also gave a good performance individually and as a pair. I’m not sure if Joseph and Jennifer starred in any other movies together, but this is the answer I’ll choose for this question.

 

  1. What classic film genre is your least favorite?

For this question, I’ll say the sci-fi genre. Not because I have anything against it, but because, within the scope of classic cinema, this is the genre that I watch the least.

 

  1. What type of classic movie musical do you prefer, one where people are constantly singing or one in which all the music is logical and in context with the story?

I like musicals that feature music in a logical way that also fits the context of the story. A few years ago, I tried watching the 2012 version of Les Miserables. I ended up turning the movie off after about twenty minutes. One of the reasons was because of how often the characters were singing. It came across as annoying instead of entertaining.

 

  1. What novel, book, or story do you really wish was made with certain actors in the Golden Era of Hollywood?

One of the most famous lost films is Four Devils. Despite what the title suggests, this story, from what I’ve heard, doesn’t sound sinister or creepy. I would have loved to see this movie receive a remake within the Breen Code era. That way, this narrative wouldn’t be completely lost to time.

 

  1. What modern film can you most visualize as a classic film with particular actors in the lead roles?

In August, I reviewed I Never Promised You a Rose Garden for “A Month Without the Code”. Because this was the only rated R production that was included in my roster of movies, it would be fascinating to see what this story would look like as a Breen Code film. How different would it be from the movie we ended up receiving? That would an interesting question to answer!

 

  1. What is your least favorite performance from your favorite actor or actress? Why?

I have two examples to share. The first is Mickey Rooney’s roles in It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. While Mickey’s role in the first film consisted of yelling and arguing, his role in the second film didn’t add anything to the story and feels like a product of its time. The second example is Allison Scagliotti’s performance in Back When We Were Grownups. I understand that her appearance in this film took place toward the beginning of her career. However, out of all the young actors that starred in this movie, she was overshadowed the most. Because she’s gained acting experience through several television shows, I think that she would be given a larger role now if she were cast in another Hallmark Hall of Fame project.

 

  1. What is your favorite performance from your least favorite actor or actress? Why?

Personally, I’m not a fan of Andie MacDowell. This is because, in my opinion, she is one of Hallmark’s weaker actresses. But her performance in Hallmark Hall of Fame’s The Beach House was such a pleasant surprise! It felt like that role was specifically created just for her, highlighting her acting strengths and minimizing her acting weaknesses. Andie did a really good job with the material she was given!

 

  1. What is one movie that made you appreciate an actor or actress you didn’t think you liked before?

For this question, I actually have three examples. The first one is Matthew McConaughey. I have seen some of his films, but it wasn’t until I saw his performance in The Newton Boys that I truly came to appreciate his acting abilities. Matthew’s portrayal of Willis Newton was both light-hearted and dramatic, something that is very difficult to pull off. My next example is Vincent Perez. While I enjoyed his performance in Queen of the Damned, his performance in Swept from the Sea became one of the best acting performances I’ve ever seen in my entire life! As I said in my review for this film, Vincent portrayed his character, Yanko, with such captivation, it came across as heart-warming and heart-breaking. The last example is Jack Turner. This particular actor has appeared in several Hallmark films. Recently, I saw Forever in My Heart and Jack’s performance was one of the best I’ve seen from a Hallmark movie this year, so far! He did a good job when pulling off an Irish accent and his portrayal of Charlie O’Hanlon appeared natural and believable.

 

  1. Can you name a film adaption of a book that you think was better than the book?

I have two examples for this question. “The Beach House” and “Rome in Love” are books that I read after I saw their respective films. I thought “The Beach House” was ok, but I did not like “Rome in Love”. Hallmark Hall of Fame’s The Beach House and Rome in Love were both enjoyable movies that I thought were better than their source material. In fact, the latter is, so far, my favorite Hallmark production of 2019!

 

  1. What is a remake which you like better than the original film? Why?

I will pick the 1996 version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I tried watching the 1939 version of this story, but I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe I’ll give it a second chance during next year’s “Clean Movie Month”. However, it all depends on whether I can rent it.

I Won the Liebster Award!

Last month, I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Annlyel from Annlyel Online. Because August was my busiest month, some blog posts had to get pushed back to September. I figured that this week would be the perfect time to finally accept this award, especially since my blogathon, Siskel and Ebert at the Blogathon, will start next week. Thank you, Annlyel, for nominating me for the Liebster Award! This is my first time receiving this particular award, so I appreciate your thoughtfulness! If you want to visit Annlyel’s blog, you can click on the link below:

Before I officially start this post, I must share the rules of the Liebster Award. These are:

 

  1. Thank the nominator in your award post
  2. Place the award logo somewhere on your blog
  3. You must state 11 facts about yourself
  4. Complete the 11 questions that your nominator provided
  5. Nominate as many bloggers as you’d like (11 is the maximum)
  6. Ask your nominees a series of question (11 is the maximum)

 

So now that I completed steps one and two, it’s time to move on to step number three. Here is my list of facts!

 

  1. In 2012, I attended a special 100th anniversary screening of Titanic. I was not only interviewed about my experience, but I also received a commemorative poster!
  2. Two weeks ago, I published 250 posts on 18 Cinema Lane!
  3. My favorite episode of The Brady Bunch is “Kelly’s Kids”.
  4. I really like cream soda.
  5. In my spare time, I enjoy watching Youtube videos related to movies and books.
  6. I’ve read five books for the Hallmark Hall of Fame Reading Challenge!
  7. My favorite Disney princess is Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
  8. A fashion style that I like is the Lolita style! It originated in Japan and it’s characterized by cute and girly garments and accessories.
  9. Land of Oz in North Carolina is a place I would love to visit.
  10. This year, I attended my first sporting event.
  11. One of my favorite tv shows is Warehouse 13.

It’s time for me to answer Annlyel’s questions! Here is my list of answers!

 

  1. What’s your favorite time of the day?

I’d say the afternoon, because it’s a time when you’re not too tired but it’s far enough away from bedtime.

 

  1. Are you a dog or a cat person?

Since I don’t have a preference for dogs or cats, I’ll say both.

 

  1. If you could travel to any planet in the galaxy which would it be?

Pluto, so I can harness it back into the Solar System!

 

  1. Which Marvel superhero would you want to be best friends with?

Bucky, of course! But, for anyone who has followed or visited my blog, are you really surprised that this is my answer?

 

  1. Which Star Wars character do you find most relatable?

As I mentioned in my post where I received my third Sunshine Blogger Award, I’m not as invested in the Star Wars franchise as I am with other film series. For this question, though, I’ll choose Princess Leia. Yes, she is a part of royalty. But that hasn’t stopped her from joining the team and contributing to the overall mission. She also deals with problems and obstacles, showing how she is not only human, but also not invincible.

 

  1. You’re traveling abroad, which country is your destination?

I’d say Canada, so I can visit the set of When Calls the Heart and Chesapeake Shores.

 

  1. The Mission: Impossible or John Wick franchise?

The only film from the Mission Impossible series that I’ve seen is Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Personally, I really didn’t like that movie. I’ve never seen the John Wick films, but I’ve heard good things about them. Also, I heard that the writer of these films will also be the official writer for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. So, for this question, I will pick the John Wick series!

 

  1. What’s your go-to movie genre?

I mostly choose which movies I watch based on whether their stories sound interesting. But I have enjoyed films in the action/adventure genre. With this genre, you can blend other genres into the narrative. Several films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are good examples of this.

 

  1. Are you a Star Wars or Star Trek person…or neither?

I’m going to say neither. This is because I’ve never seen any of the Star Trek programs and I’m not really invested in the Star Wars franchise.

  1. What’s your favorite fast-food chain?

Over the years, I have really come to like Chick-fil-A. Their grilled chicken nuggets are delicious and I also like their frozen lemonade.

 

  1. What’s your favorite sweet treat?

I love Red Velvet flavored treats! If there’s a red velvet dessert on the menu, I’ll make an effort to order it!

I won the Mystery Blogger Award!

I was nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award two weeks ago by Annlyel from Annlyel Online! However, because of my involvement with Clean Movie Month Blogathon and other movie reviews I wanted to get caught up on, I didn’t have time to complete this post as soon as I had wanted to. Since I’m taking an out of town trip this weekend, I chose to create and publish this post before I left. Before I begin this nomination, I’d like to thank Annlyel for taking the time to recognize my blogging efforts! She has so kind and supportive of not only me as a blogger, but also of my blog. Check out her blog at

https://annlyelonline.wordpress.com/

Mystery Blogger Award banner

Like most blogging awards, there are a series of requirements that must be followed. They are:

  1. Feature the award banner anywhere on your blog
  2. List all of the nine rules
  3. Thank the person who nominated you as well as feature a link to their blog
  4. Explain what the Mystery Blogger Award is. Make sure credit the award creator and provide a link to their blog
  5. Share three things about yourself to your readers
  6. Nominate 10 – 20 bloggers (if possible)
  7. Let your nominees know that they’ve been nominated by leaving a comment on their blog
  8. Create five question to ask your nominees. One of the questions has to be either weird or funny, so please specify this within your list of questions.
  9. Provide a link to your best post(s)

 

Before I continue, I need to share what the Mystery Blogger Award is. It is:

Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion. Okoto Enigma

 

Now it’s time for me to share three things about myself, which are:

  1. After a request from K from K at the Movies, I have created a special email address so my readers and followers could contact me! It’s connected to a special page under the tab “Contact Me”. The address is 18cinemalanefans@gmail.com.
  2. If you have looked at my list of Upcoming Blogathons, located at the right-hand side of my blog, you would see the banner for the 2019 6th Annual Christmas in July Blogathon from the website, Christmas TV History. I am one of the participants and my series of answers to Joanna Wilson’s questions will be posted on, I believe, July 28th! You can read that post on the website Christmastvhistory.com.
  3. This week, I reviewed my 100th movie! That review was for the film, Christmas Camp, which I reviewed for the Christmas in July Blogathon from Drew’s Movie Reviews. I will commemorate this achievement after my out of town trip that I’m taking this weekend.

 

For this segment, I’ve chosen ten nominees for the Mystery Blogger Award! They are:

Raveena from Raveena Nigam

Robin from Pop Culture Reverie

Maddy from Maddy Loves Her Classic Films

Crystal from Maybe Crazy Help

Tony from Seattle’s Best Pest Detection

Eddie from Jordan and Eddie (The Movie Guys)

AHazardDesigns from Elves Choice

AZ from AthemovieZ

Jordan from The Art of Blogging

Crystal from In The Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood

 

And now is time to answer Annlyel’s question’s!

1. (Weird) What strange food combination have you ever experimented with and realized it was actually kind of delicious?

It would have to be pieces of apple on pizza. I actually like eating pizza with pineapple on the slices, so apples as an added ingredient isn’t that weird for me.

2. If there was any ancient civilization you could visit what would it be?

Since I’m a fan of Atlantis: The Lost Empire, I would visit Atlantis! It would be interesting to see how similar or different Atlantis is from the movie.

3. What’s your favorite holiday movie?

Prancer has always had a special place in my heart! It’s a simpler story, but I find it to be very sweet. I also like A Smokey Mountain Christmas starring Dolly Parton. For me, it’s the best “modern” re-telling of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”!

4. What’s your idea of a dream vacation?

As I’ve mentioned before, I have always wanted to go to Dollywood. What would make this trip a dream vacation is if it were all expenses paid.

5. Reality, drama, or comedy; what’s your favorite television show genre?

Judging by the shows that I re-cap (When Calls the Heart and Chesapeake Shores), I would choose drama. With Hallmark’s shows specifically, there’s not only a good balance of comedy and drama, but also messages and themes that are realistic and relatable.

 

Here are my list of questions for my nominees!

  1. Funny: What is the funniest joke you’ve ever heard?
  2. Which 2020 released movie are you looking forward to?
  3. What was the last book you read?
  4. Are there any movie related mysteries you would like to see solved? If so, which one?
  5. Which cake flavor is you favorite?

 

I’ve made a list of what I think are some of the best blog posts of mine! They are:

Take 3: The Case of the Whitechapel Vampire Review (Halloween Double Feature Part 1)

Take 3: Queen of the Damned Review (Halloween Double Feature Part 2)

Toxic Valentine: Why Lestat and Akasha’s relationship is very problematic in Queen of the Damned (2002)

Why Jiggy Nye is Not an Effective Villain in Felicity: An American Girl Adventure

A Bucky Fan’s Response to one of Looper’s Avengers: Endgame related videos

Word on the Street: Hallmark’s third “Father Christmas” movie is going into production

The Top 10 Worst Hallmark Movies of All Time

Take 3: Hailey Dean Mysteries: A Will to Kill Review

 

Have fun at the movies!

I Received my First Blogger Recognition Award!

Last month, I was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award by Annlyel from Annlyel Online! Because I was out of town during the week I was nominated, I postponed my award post for another day. Since I now have the time to complete this post, I decided to do that today. Thank you Annlyel for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award! This is my first time receiving this honor, so I’m so excited to share this achievement with all my readers and followers! If you want to check out Annlyel’s thoughts on movies, superheroes, and cinematic news, visit her blog at this link:

Blogger Recognition Award banner
Blogger Recognition Award banner found at https://annlyelonline.wordpress.com/2019/06/22/ive-been-nominated-for-the-blogger-recognition-award/.

Before I begin the official award post, I need to list the rules for receiving the award. There rules are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and feature a link to their blog in your award post.
  2. Post the award banner somewhere on your blog.
  3. Share the reason why you started your blog.
  4. Share two pieces of advice that could benefit new bloggers.
  5. Nominate a maximum of fifteen other bloggers.
  6. Tell your nominees about your award post so they can participate!

 

Since I’ve already completed the first two steps, I’ll now move on to the third step.

 

  1. As I said in my very first blog post last February, I wanted to give the movie related things that I like the “standing ovation” that I think they deserve. With this digital platform, I’ve realized that I can make a positive difference through my blog posts and interactions with others. If you want to learn more about why I started 18 Cinema Lane, you can read the first blog post I ever published.

 

https://18cinemalane.wordpress.com/2018/02/10/introducing-sally-silverscreen-and-18-cinema-lane/

 

  1. The first thing I would tell new bloggers is to type and save your posts in Microsoft Word first. Sometimes, the save option on the “add new post” page, which is located in the upper left-hand corner of the page, doesn’t record the changes you might make to your article. So, writing and saving your posts in Microsoft Word allows bloggers to have a sense of security that their work will get completed with few technical interruptions.

 

The second piece of advice I would give is to reach out to other bloggers, especially those that have the same interests as you. Fellow movie bloggers have become followers of mine because I reached out and recognized their hard work and dedication. Reaching out to other bloggers can also give you inspiration for future blog entries. One example for me is Cameron’s article, from The Blog Complainer, about making good movie sequels. This creative idea inspired me to think more critically about Queen of the Damned as a cinematic sequel, as I was able to apply some of Cameron’s points to my review of the film. If you want to learn more about how good movie sequels can be made, as well as how Cameron’s article influenced my movie-viewing experience, you can read these two articles:

https://18cinemalane.wordpress.com/2018/10/31/queen-of-the-damned-review-halloween-double-feature-part-2/

 

  1. The next fifteen nominees for the Blogger Recognition Award are:
  • Bernie from Reely, Bernie?
  • Tiffany and Rebekah from Pure Entertainment Preservation Society
  • Rachel from Rachel’s Reviews
  • Emie from RECIPES HOMEMADE
  • Roxy from RTW Roxy
  • Marissa from Marissa the Cinephile
  • Ruth from My Devotional Thoughts
  • Edirin from Retro Movie Buff
  • Quiggy from The Midnite Drive-In
  • Le from Critica Retro
  • JustSoYouDon’tHaveTo from JustSoYouDon’tHaveTo
  • Kaycee from Nest + Hustle
  • Jenni from Portraitsbyjenni
  • Joanna from Christmas TV History
  • The Stop Button from The Stop Button

 

Congratulations to all of the newly nominated bloggers!

My third Sunshine Blogger Award of 2019!

Last month, I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Annlyel from Annlyel Online. However, because I’ve recently taken two out of town trips and had several blogging related things on my plate, I wasn’t able to accept the award as soon as I had wanted to. Now, I have set aside some time to finally publish my blog post for my third Sunshine Blogger Award! Before I list the rules, as well as the questions with my answers, I want to thank Annlyel for choosing to nominate me for this award! I still can’t believe that I’ve won five awards within the one year that I have been blogging! What really makes the awards I’ve won so special is that each of the nominators had believed in me, as a blogger, enough to want to give my blog the time of day. This amount of belief gives me the confidence to be as great of a blogger as I can be!

Annlyel’s Questions and My Answers

  1. If you can, which movie is your favorite of all time? There are several movies that I absolutely love. But since I have to pick one for this question, I’ll go with Atlantis: The Lost Empire! Among Disney’s collection of animated films, Atlantis: The Lost Empire is a very different kind of story. However, it still has that familiar sense of “Disney magic”!
  2. Have you been to Disney World? If so, what’s your favorite park? Yes, on more than one occasion, in fact! There are so many great locations in this Orlando, Florida amusement park. But, when it comes to favorites, it’s a tie between Disney M.G.M. Studios (or as it’s now known as Disney Hollywood Studios) and Magic Kingdom. As a fan of movies, I think it’s so cool that Disney created a whole “land” dedicated to this topic. With the Magic Kingdom, you can’t go wrong with an original classic.
  3. Who’s your favorite Star Wars character? I’m not as invested in the Stars Wars franchise as I am with other film series. I have seen the films from the original trilogy, though, so I’ll choose Yoda and the Ewoks. The Ewoks are so fierce and adorable, while Yoda is kind and wise. Frankly, I’ve always wished that I could give Yoda a hug!
  4. Who’s your favorite Marvel superhero? Definitely Bucky Barnes! I’ve talked about him plenty of times on this blog, so I don’t really need an explanation.
  5. Who’s your favorite DC Comics superhero? When it comes to superheroes in film, I have found myself more invested in the MCU heroes than those from DC. For this question, though, I’ll say Batman is my favorite DC hero. Over the years, I have enjoyed watching the Batman film from 1989. I also think that Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy has, for the most part, been solid. It’ll be interesting to see what Robert Pattinson has to offer, talent wise, to the iconic role.
  6. What’s your favorite guilty pleasure, pertaining to food? In my life, I don’t really have any “guilty pleasures” because I don’t feel guilty about liking the things that I do like. However, I will say that this edible “guilty pleasure” is mustard potato salad. Trust me, this dish is more delicious than it sounds!
  7. What city is on your bucket list to visit? Definitely Kansas City, Missouri! I’d love to see the Hallmark Headquarters in person!
  8. What’s your favorite pastime activity? Ever since I could remember, I have always loved reading! I’m currently reading The Secret Garden in preparation for an upcoming blog post. This is my second time reading it, and so far, it’s a good book!
  9. Wakanda, Coruscant, or Hogwarts; which of these fictional worlds would you love to visit? Out of these three locations, I’d pick Wakanda. Since Bucky has spent some time there, he could give me a tour of some of his favorite spots. He could also introduce me to some of his newer friends, like T’Challa and Shuri. Then, we could all join forces and figure out how to have Wakanda become the host country for the Summer Olympics (this should totally be a plot point for either Black Panther 2 or Bucky and Sam’s show on Disney+).
  10. What’s your favorite novel of all time? I actually have several favorite books. But the one that I will share is A Little Princess! Sara is such a great protagonist and the “all girls are princesses” message still holds true!
  11. What’s your favorite sporting event? No doubt, it’s the Cheerleading and Dance Worlds! Competitive cheer and dance are my favorite sports, so this particular event is the biggest event for them. I’m hoping that in the 2020 Summer Olympics, cheer and dance teams can be included into the overall athletic program.

The results of the 1st Annual Gold Sally Awards have finally arrived!

Earlier this February, I started the Gold Sally Awards as my way of celebrating 18 Cinema Lane’s first anniversary. These awards were created to be interactive for all my readers and followers. After several months and voting polls, it’s finally time to reveal the winners of the very first Gold Sally Awards! Instead of just listing the names of the winning actors and movies, I’ve created scrapbook pages that showcase photos of these winners. The pages are Christmas themed to represent the 10th anniversary of Hallmark Channel’s “Countdown to Christmas” movie line-up. Before this celebration begins, I want to say thank you to everyone who supported the Gold Sally Awards by voting in the polls or liking the posts. Because this became a successful experience, I will definitely continue to host these awards next year! Now it’s time to announce this year’s winners!

I won the Sunshine Blogger Award!

Last week, I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by K from K at the Movies! Since I had to devote time to the Gold Sally Awards, a Word on the Street story, and a movie review, I decided to publish my award entry this week. During that time, I was nominated again by Cameron by The Blog Complainer! Because I was nominated by two people within the same month, I decided to combine some of K’s questions and some of Cameron’s questions into my overall list of questions. Before I begin this post, I wanted to take the time to thank both K and Cameron for their nominations. I’ve never received the Sunshine Blogger Award before, so it’s an honor to be recognized for such an honor like this! Now that introductions are out of the way, let’s officially start this award entry!

Here are the links to K’s and Cameron’s blog:

  • Thank the person(s) for nominating you as well as provide a link to their respective blogs
  • List all of the rules and post the award logo somewhere on your blog

The Questions of the Sunshine Blogger Award:

  1. What is your favorite Score or Soundtrack to a film or television show (I will accept an Album or any collection of music if you find this question difficult to answer)? There are so many great soundtracks that I’ve heard in my life! If I had to choose one, however, I would pick the soundtrack from The Bodyguard. This is one of my favorite movies of all time, with the music being just as good as the film itself. I’m so glad that Whitney’s music was incorporated into the film as well as to her individual character. Her songs are such a timeless addition to any playlist. This soundtrack is so good, I not only still listen to it (over 20 years later), but I can name which scenes each song appeared in.

 

  1. What is one piece of media you would like to see adapted to a different medium? One of my favorite Christmas songs is “Christmas Through Your Eyes” by Gloria Estefan. For years, I have always wanted to know who the narrator was talking to and how much of an influence this person had on the narrator. Based on the lyrics, it seems like a great story could come from this song. So, to answer K’s question, I would love to see Gloria’s song adapted into a movie! I’ve always thought that “Christmas Through Your Eyes” would make a great Hallmark Hall of Fame film! If this movie were to become a reality, I wonder if Gloria herself would make an on-screen appearance?

 

  1. What’s your favourite type of weather? As it was said in Miss Congeniality, my favorite type of weather is “not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket”.

 

  1. What is one post or article you’ve written that doesn’t get enough love, you feel is underrated that’d you like more people to see? (Yes, shamelessly plug yourself) Like Cameron said in their Sunshine Blogger Award post, you have very little control over what people read and view on your blog. On 18 Cinema Lane, I’ve been very fortunate to have good viewership numbers on my various posts. However, I feel like my editorials should receive a little more recognition. I don’t write them often because they are long and require a significant amount of work. However, compared to the other content on my blog, it seems like these posts aren’t sought out. So, if anyone is interested, I will include a link to each of my four editorials into this post!

Blockbuster leaving Alaska; the Saddest Movie Related Article I’ve Read This Year

Bucky Barnes and Matthew Rogers: Paralleling Stories of Disability

What makes a Shirley Temple movie a “Shirley Temple movie”?

Toxic Valentine: Why Lestat and Akasha’s relationship is very problematic in Queen of the Damned (2002)

 

  1. A movie studio decides to make a movie based on your life. Who would you like to play yourself? I had to give this question a little bit of thought. But, after thinking about it, I decided that I would like to see Laci J. Mailey from Chesapeake Shores portray me in a movie based on my life! She is one of the most talented actresses in the Hallmark community. Plus, her acting abilities would be compatible with comedic and dramatic material. As far as I know, Laci has never led a film before. So, if this movie were to be a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, this would be her first starring role in a Hallmark project!

 

  1. “Your Childhood is Ruined!” When someone decides to make a terrible reboot or remake of what? Two of my favorite animated films of all time are Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Anastasia (1997). Since Disney has the ability to remake almost anything and since they have recently purchased the movie rights to 20th Century Fox films, any of these two films have the potential to get remade. But, lately, it seems like Disney is remaking their movies just for the sake of receiving money. Like I said in my review of The Bad Seed (2018), a good remake should do two things: 1. Respect the original film and 2. Do something new with the story and provide your own voice to the narrative. While Kim Possible (2019) did a good job at following these two rules, there’s no guarantee that a remake of Atlantis: The Lost Empire or Anastasia (1997) will apply these rules to their project. Besides, why remake a movie that was already good to begin with?

 

  1. You have been given the chance to go on the holiday you have always dreamed of. Where are you going? For the majority of my life, I have always wanted to go on a cruise. From what I’ve heard about them, they sound like fun as well as a unique experience. Every year, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) hosts a cruise to celebrate classic cinema. However, I’ve haven’t had the money or time to attend one of these cruises. Another place I’ve wanted to visit is Dollywood. Ever since the cast of Home & Family spent an entire week filming at the theme park, it seemed, to me, like such a fun place! There are other attractions around that area that sound just as interesting. Going to Dollywood for vacation would be such a great experience!

 

  1. If you could go back in time and tell your younger self something important, what would you tell him/her? The one thing that I would tell my younger self is that it’s ok to expand your pop cultural horizons. Years ago, the only piece of superhero pop culture that I truly cared about was Sailor Moon. Today, my favorite superhero is Bucky Barnes. Because I chose to expand my horizons when it comes to pop culture, I became invested in characters and stories that I might not have cared about otherwise.

 

  1. What is an unsolved mystery that you wish you knew the answer to? As I mentioned in my post about My Top 5 Dream Double Features at the Cinema, I have always wondered why Kida (from Atlantis: The Lost Empire) and Chel (from The Road to El Dorado) share some similarities between each other, even though they were created by two different animators from two different animation companies. I would love to receive an answer to this question that I have been asking for over fifteen years.

 

10. You are given a magic phone with a T-Mobile Fave 5 plan that allows you unlimited calls to any fictional characters. Who’s in Your 5? I’m not going to lie, this question, for me, required a significant amount of thought. However, I was able to create this short list that made me happy! The characters in my Fave 5 plan are:

  • Bucky Barnes – from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU): For me, this choice was a no-brainer. Like I’ve mentioned before, Bucky is my favorite superhero in the MCU. So, of course, I would want to grant him a special spot on this plan.
  • Moon – from Cedar Cove: Out of all the characters that have ever stepped foot in the town of Cedar Cove, Moon has always been my favorite! Because he doesn’t have any known family and since the other characters from Cedar Cove could be busy dealing with their own situations, there might be times when he could be lonely. So, Moon would have a chance to call me if he wanted to reach a friend.
  • Jiggy Nye – from Felicity: An American Girl Adventure and the Felicity Merriman series from American Girl: Anyone who has read the books or seen the movie would know that Jiggy Nye is the antagonist of this particular story. However, he evolves over the course of the series/movie into a hero. Similar to Moon, Jiggy doesn’t have any known family. He also could become lonely due to the other characters from the series/movie possibly dealing with their own situations. Giving Jiggy a piece of this plan would be a good way for him to connect with, at least, one friend.
  • Karen Brewer – from the Baby-Sitters Little Sister series: Years ago, Karen Brewer became one of my favorite literary characters. Since she was a child when this series began in 1988, Karen would likely be an adult in 2019. This means that she has more life experience now than she had 31 years ago. By granting her a piece of this plan, I would get to learn more about her life as well as see how some of her life experiences compare to my own. Based on the books, Karen seemed to have an interesting life. So, it would be fascinating to hear about her adventures that would have never appeared in the books.
  • Debbie Thornberry – from The Wild Thornberrys: In my review of Rugrats Go Wild, I shared that Debbie is my favorite character from The Wild Thornberrys. Similar to Karen Brewer, Debbie was a teenager at the start of the show. Therefore, it’s highly likely that she would be an adult by now. I would to love to hear how her life turned out after the Thornberrys traveled the world. Had she planted roots or become an explorer of her own? If I gave Debbie a piece of this plan, I would hopefully get answers to these questions.

 

  1. The thing you’re most proud of? For several years, I had been considering starting a blog. However, I was always met with self-doubt and poor timing. But, last February, I finally took the first step in creating 18 Cinema Lane. Starting my blog is what I’m most proud of because it has given a sense of confidence that I didn’t think I had. In fact, I wouldn’t be receiving this award had I not made that decision to, finally, become a blogger.

Introducing the 1st Annual Gold Sally Awards

On 18 Cinema Lane, I talk about Hallmark movies quite a bit. Also, Hallmark has made a lot of movies as time goes on. Because of this and because my blog’s first anniversary is approaching this February, I’ve decided to celebrate the occasion by hosting my very own awards! Earlier this month, in my post called “2019: Looking Back and Planning Ahead”, I briefly mentioned these special awards and said that Hallmark would be the overall theme. What I meant by that is, for the Gold Sally Awards, all of the nominations will be Hallmark movie related. I will be choosing which movies and actors get nominated. However, you, the readers and followers, get to choose which movies and actors actually win the Gold Sally Awards! Right now, I’ll talk about each voting category and what you can expect when it’s time to choose a winner!

Best Movie from Hallmark Channel and Best Movie from Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

This category is pretty straight-forward. Ten movies that were released in 2018 will be nominated for each category. However, half of the movies will be Christmas films, while the other half of the nominations will be given to films outside of both Christmas line-ups. As this title suggests, movies from both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries will be recognized.

 

Best Hallmark Channel Story and Best Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Story

This category will focus on the stories within movies from both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. Sometimes, a film’s story is one of the components that makes a Hallmark movie good. However, some of the movies in these two categories will not be in the Best Movies categories. This is because I tried my best not to have as many re-peat nominations as possible.

 

Best On-Screen Couple from a Hallmark Channel movie and Best On-Screen Couple from a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie

The on-screen chemistry of twenty on-screen couples will be celebrated in both of these categories. When it comes to Hallmark movies, the on-screen chemistry between the on-screen couples can either make or break that production. However, when the on-screen chemistry in a Hallmark movie is good, it can help that project be as enjoyable as possible for its respective audience. This is especially important since a significant amount of Hallmark movies are romantic-comedies.

The Acting Categories

All of these eight categories are also pretty straight-forward. Each category will recognize the lead and supporting actors from both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. These categories are:

  • Best Hallmark Channel Actress
  • Best Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Actress
  • Best Hallmark Channel Actor
  • Best Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Actor
  • Best Supporting Hallmark Channel Actress
  • Best Supporting Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Actress
  • Best Supporting Hallmark Channel Actor
  • Best Supporting Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Actor

Like the Best Movies categories, there will be ten nominees in each category. Five nominees will be actors and actresses from Christmas movies, while the other five will be from movies outside the Christmas season.

 

Best Ensemble from a Hallmark Channel movie and Best Ensemble from a Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie

When it comes to actors and actresses within a Hallmark movie, there are bound to be some performances that get overshadowed by other performers in that particular movie. These two categories will recognize the entire cast from twenty Hallmark films. The categories themselves were created to recognize that every member of a Hallmark cast is equally important. Like I’ve said before, half of the nominated casts will be from a Christmas movie and the other half will be from a non-Christmas movie.

 

Hallmark Star of the Year

This category is the most interactive out of all these categories. For Hallmark Star of the Year, you, readers and followers, get to pick who gets nominated for this award. All you have to do is write a brief but thorough explanation for why your chosen nominee should be crowned the Hallmark Star of the Year. More details about this award will be revealed when it’s time to vote.

All of these categories will run for a week and a half, with the first category starting on February 9th, the day 18 Cinema Lane began. Remember, these awards are recognition-only prizes. The Gold Sally Awards are more of a celebration of the best that Hallmark has to offer in terms of entertainment. It’s also a celebration of how far 18 Cinema Lane has come. Please stay tuned for these special awards as they are only two weeks away!

 

Have fun at the movies!

I won the The Blog Complainer’s Appreciation Award!

Blog Complainer's Appreciation Award
I never thought I would win two awards in the same month! Image found at https://theblogcomplainer.com/2018/11/16/ive-been-nominated-for-the-versatile-blogger-award/

Now that Thanksgiving leftovers have been stored away in the refrigerator and Christmas shopping has officially begun, it’s time that I share some good news. Last week, I was nominated for The Blog Complainer’s Appreciation Award! This prize was created by The Blog Complainer (a.k.a. Cameron), who nominated me as well. Thank you, Cameron, for not only creating this award, but also for nominating me! Here is the link to where this award began:

  4. Complete a small Challenge

From December 3rd to 9th, Zoe, from the Youtube channel Readerbee, and Georgia, from the Youtube channel Reading Euphoria, are hosting a readathon called Cosyathon! My small challenge for this award will be to read two books for this readathon! These two books will count for three of the readathon’s challenges.
