Let's Go to the Movies!
|The Hunger Games|
I have come up with what I hope will be a fun Mary's Mixed Bag challenge for everyone. If you are like me, you enjoy movies. Some that I have seen in the past few months were Bully; The Hunger Games; The Artist; Puss 'N Boots; The Descendants; Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol; Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close; Iron Lady; The Adventures of Tin Tin; Hugo. It would be fun to see your list. Maybe you can list some of them in 'comments.'
For this challenge there are three choices:
(1) Think of a movie you have seen recently. Write a poem that arises from that movie - from its title, theme, subject matter, a character, setting, etc. Here is a site where you can find a list of 2011 movies and another for 2012 movies.
|Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol|
(2) Write a poem that arises from subject matter,title, theme, character, setting, etc. of an older or classic movie. This is a list of movies that have grossed most money at the box office if you need inspiration.
|Gone With the Wind|
If you still need more inspiration, here is a "wordle" poem I wrote entitled Casablanca about the movie of the same name. In this poem, I put myself inside the movie. This would be another way you could approach the challenge.
When you write and link a new poem using Mr. Linky below, please leave a comment as well. And perhaps, as part of your comment, you could list some of the movies you have seen in the past few months. It would be interesting to see your list. Oh, and of course, don't forget to visit the links of others who post as well. Have fun! I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
