After Seeing Jen's post I feel rather envious of her film buff status and quite shameful of the fact that I am not similarly educated (or indeed that passionate) about films old & new.
The thing is that I don't really watch films like other people do, most of the time I dig into my collection of personal and sometimes embarrassing movie classics and play whatever strikes my fancy while I busy myself with something else. When I was young I used to sit at the coffee table in our lounge and draw all day while Robin Hood or the Three Amigos played in the background. Today nothing has changed - just replace drawing with blogging or working and perhaps replace Robin Hood with the five hour bbc version of Pride & Prejudice.
One of the movies I used to watch on repeat as a kid was Now and Then - which I absolutely loved since I was same age as the characters when it was released, and it spoke to me about everything you go through as a twelve year old girl. The fact that it is set in the summer of 1970 is also a visual perk. Plus Devon Sawa was such a dreamboat, guys.
The only thing that always bugged be about Now and Then though ... Roberta /Christina Ricci turns into Rosie O'Donnell? Please.

Hila and I are fellow Southern Hemisphereans (I hail from South Africa) and I know for a fact that she suffers in the intense heat of our similarly torturous summer seasons as much as I do. That's not to say I hate summer. In fact, there are many things about the season that I love - but I tend to forget the perks when I'm complaining about it being close to 40°C.
So since summer is only about 2 months away (!) I thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of Summer Positives that we can refer back to when we're lying in our beds at night tossing and turning because it's too hot to fall asleep.
1. warm water / summer fruit / swimsuits
2. tanned skin / beach holidays / sandals
3. bike rides / jasmine / outdoor evenings
4. summer dresses / summer love / long summer days
