A Movie Meme

Oh, no! No Casablanca? No Shane? Oh, my dear. And, I just have to say, that if you choose to watch "Network" prepare yourself for its prophetic message come true these days ....

Thanks for the recommendations, Karen. I've added Network to my Netflix list. We actually own Shane and the kids love it, but I've never seen it.

I have a horrible feeling that I've seen ALL of them.
