    My anti spam word is AUTHORS. LOVE IT! hehe…

    My favorite movie: Wow. This question really made me stop and think. My favorite movie. i had to really stop and analyze each movie that popped in my mind as to why it would or would not be my favorite. Can I pick one from each category? I don’t have a favorite that is an all time favorite. I love movies for so many different reasons. I love what Jurassic Park did for the dinosaurs. I was seriously amazed when I saw this movie for the first time. I can still remember my moouth open wide looking at the dinosaurs like they could really be real. A moment I will never forget for sure. I went and saw “Saving Private Ryan” when I was pregnant with our first child. I think I cried for 3 days straight. The horrors of war and loss is magnigied by 100 when you are pregant and hormonal. To this day, I shudder when I remember that movie. It was well made and the messages were incredible in it. It created a sadness in me that I will keep forever. Twilight the movie brought some characters to life that I honestly felt close to. Seeing Edward, Jacob and Bella on the big screen was awe inspiring to me. I have never felt that close to characters before that I met in a book and then saw on the big screen. I normally do not care for movies made from great books. This was an exception. To say I have a favorite movie would be unjust to all the movies in the world. A better question would be, how did you feel when you saw this movie? Thank you!

    Sorry for the double comment but I just wanted to say thank you for having this series. It has been wonderful following you all. Thank you also for the great give aways. You are all brilliant and bring us great pleasure in your books. Thank you!

    While I do not claim to be even close to being a writer, I am indeed a reader. I love to read and learning your writing processes makes me a better reader.

    My fave movie of all time is definitely LIFE AS A HOUSE, although once INCEPTION hits stores as a DVD, that will most likely change. :)

    Anti-spam word: reading (coolies! :D )

    Okay, well I haven’t had a favourite movie in years. All of my favourites are movies I watched when I was like 12. If I need to pin it to one movie: Mulan. The Disney version. :P

    I’m trying to catch up on my episodes! (I have a US address)

    I don’t just have one favorite movie but the one that pops into my head right now is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s beautiful, and brilliant.

    Just realised this was the last for Season 1. Wow.

    That’s kind of sad. :(

    Ah! Winning! That’s so awesome! (Which, funny enough, is the Captcha word). I haven’t gotten an email or anything yet, though. Is there something else I have to do? Unless there’s another Maddy.
    Anyway, I think my favorite movie is Coraline. I liked the book, but the movie was fantastic. I saw it three times in theatres, and once in IMAX 3D. The DVD release definitely did not do it justice.
    But anyway.
    Thank you so much for these episodes, and I can’t wait for more!

    I would say my movie favorite would be, Lion king hands down. I remember watching it when I was younger I would watch it over and over again. Back to back when it would finish I would rewind it and watch it all over again. And I can still watch it now and love it. And Im not afraid to say it out loud.
