Hanks For The Memories

Standard
Hanks For The Memories

Hello! Earlier this week, it was my sweet boyfriend, Johnny’s, thirty-first birthday. We celebrated over the weekend by going to a social distance bonfire hosted by a friend on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, we day drank and enjoyed a Tom Hank’s movie marathon that we officially dubbed with the name “Hanks For The Memories”.

On day one of what we referred to as “Timber Top’s First Annual Film Festival”, we watched That Thing You Do, Cast Away, Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, and Toy Story 1 and 2. About halfway between our first flick, Johnny turned to me and said “this was the best idea we’ve ever had” and I have to say that I agree.

Not only was “Hanks For The Memories” the most inspired thing I’ve came up with in a while but we each enjoyed movies we had never seen before. For example, Johnny has never seen Cast Away and I have only seen that one and Saving Private Ryan. I know, I am just as shocked as everyone that I have never seen Toy Story or Forrest Gump!

I think Johnny ended up enjoying Cast Away, though, judging by the new best friend he’s snuggled up with:

WILSON!!!!!

Hellooo everyone! Literal years ago, my sister and I visited Chicago together for a weekend trip. We ended up at a TJMaxx there with one of her friends and I ended up with a replica Wilson volleyball from the movie, Cast Away. Wilson has been a staple in my space ever since and has his own special spot on my bookshelf:

^^^ Can you find him?!

While moving into my apartment, one of the movers from the company I hired noticed Mr. Wilson sitting in one of my boxes and asked me if I used to play volleyball. When I laughed and said no and asked him if he’s ever seen Cast Away he looked at me like I was a crazy person so I had to drop some knowledge on him. Can you believe that there are people who have never seen let alone heard of that masterpiece?! Smh.

I am still on a big movie kick at chez moi because no cable and no streaming services so imagine how happy I was to spot Cast Away at Target for FOUR DOLLARS. You’re not going to not buy it!

^^^ Lol, I just can’t.

I’m pretty stoked about my latest purchase and I know that Wilson is ecstatic to be reunited with his rightful owner. An afternoon viewing of Cast Away with a glass of wine in hand is just what the doctor ordered on my next day off! 😀

What is a movie that you love that no one knows about? What is your favorite cult film? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
