I thought you guys would enjoy this post on the movie blog. I decided on one movie made for each year of my life. It was a lot of fun so check it out.
Interesting idea, I might steal it from you and do it on my blog too!
Please do! I’d love to read it
Is it OK if I give this a go as well? I like this idea.
