Watching a good movie can't be beat. You know the feeling...when the acting is on point, the story totally has you captivated, and the score is running through your head days later. There are very few things I enjoy more than some quality time in front of the big screen! And if you've been around here very long at all then you know I spend FAR too much money at the theater during Oscar season and always post my picks to see how I compare with the Academy. You can imagine my delight when I saw that Jenn over at Quirky Pickings had posted a Fall Film Challenge! I immediately starting thinking of which movies I could use to fit each category!
