A. Musicals.
15. Favorite classic Disney?

A. The Jungle Book, just because my husband does a really cool imitation of Baloo the bear.


  1. Now why didn't I think of Forest Gump to add to my list of great movie soundtracks? The kids loved that movie growing up and we watched it soooo many times. I did own a copy of the soundtrack at one time. Oh, Viggo....definitely a mustache to enjoy!

  2. I hardly watch movies so it was hard for me, too. That's so cute about your husband doing an imitation of Baloo! :)

  3. I should watch the Lord of the Rings movies. I love Viggo.

  4. I can't even tell you how many times I saw Jungle Book with my kids when they were small. I know all about Baloo.

  5. i agree this one was a hard one for me too. but i made it! loved the Cruela DeVille Answer!

  6. Out of Africa is really quite an excellent movie.

  7. I'm with you on no more remakes of classic films. They never turn out half as good as the original. The westerns that immediately come to mind are Luke, Cat Ballou and The Harvey Girls -- my dad was big on that genre. For soundtracks, some of my faves are French Kiss, My Best Friend's Wedding and Notting Hill
