Top Ten Film Moments That Haunt Me: Silver Screen Serenade

So, as usual, Zoe has been up to awesome things over at The Sporadic Chronicles of a Beginner Blogger. Right now she’s been posting really fun movie-themed top ten lists, and when she sent out requests, I couldn’t pass up the chance to write one. My list? Top Ten Film Moments That Haunt Me. Go check it out–if you dare… 😉

The Sporadic Chronicles

So Cara from Silver Screen Serenade went with something slightly different for her top ten list today. Cara has an awesome blog that features a whole lot of stuff and a really cool review layout, and hosted the Resolutions 2014 blogathon earlier this year which was a cool thing to get involved in and get up, be productive and watch those movies you have been putting off for such a long time! Also, she is the winner of Shitfest: Winter (2014)! Definitely worth looking into and a lot of fun, I now move over to give you Cara’s top ten!

Should you be interested in submitting a Top Ten list, draw up a list of either your top ten personal favourite movies or a top ten list by a specific genre/theme and send it along to me at Hope to see a few more lists!

But I did it because I wanted to let all you lovely people know how grateful and humbled I am that you chose my entry as your favorite. Seriously. Receiving that announcement from Eric could very well go down in history as my favorite blogging moment ever—hell, one of my favorite life moments ever. I was that excited. So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. Mmmmwah! (Just so we’re clear, that was a kiss and not a judo chop.)

Anyway, I must give credit where credit is due: this…
