Savannah is a great southern city with tons of history. There are lots of fun things to do in Savannah Georgia, from visiting the Forrest Gump bench to seeing where a Girl Scouts icon grew up. It’s hard to squeeze everything into one single post, but I’ve tried. See my favorite Savannah Georgia landmarks and attractions.
I am SO glad I saw each of these movies for myself — without hearing about them from other people first. I’m not for or against any of the things they stand for. I’m simply one who likes to have an open mind and be aware of others’ points-of-views and how they impact mainstream America. These 3 movies do just that!

Here is my review of the movie, My Kid Could Paint That. It’s a controversial documentary about 4-year-old Marla Olmstead. I would love to see a recent update, now that she is 9 years old and has had her artwork scrutinized by everyone under the sun.
FootyGI shows raw, rough, actual video footage recorded by U.S. men and women serving on the front line. It’s like YouTube for soldiers.

I’m a sucker for anything that’s fact-based in some way. And the phrase ‘based on a true story’ will get me to the movie theater every time. Here are some true stories that are our personal favorites…
American Gangster is based on a true story. Like usual, after I see a ‘fact-based’ movie, I run home to learn all I can about the REAL characters that the movie is based on. In this case, Frank Lucas. Here’s what I found out about Frank ‘Superfly’ Lucas… a drug lord of the 1970’s and 80’s.
Did you know?… If you want to keep your movie PG-13, you can only have one F-bomb in it. Any more than that, and they bump you up to an R rating. BUT… if you precede your F-bomb with the word ‘mother’… then you automatically get an R rating!
Much to our surprise, we actually enjoyed Quentin Tarantino’s double-feature movie, Grindhouse. We preferred ‘Death Proof’ over ‘Panet Terror’… but both were enjoyable to watch because they were so different from traditional movies you see in the theater these days. Stuntwoman, Zoe Bell, and Kurt Russell made the movie ‘Death Proof’.

Some information that I found interesting about Billy Bob Thornton…

The movie ‘High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story’ is about poker legend, Stu Ungar — aka Stuey ‘The Kid’ Ungar — who was a man with a gift for cards. The movie’s writer and director is A.W. Tony Vidmer, who hails from Nashville, Tennessee. Here’s why I am in awe of both the movie, and the movie’s writer/director. We’re talking about more than just poker here…
