What exactly is Rosebud?

September 15, 2017

For me, the view of the sled is a statement on the deceit of the pursuit of happiness.

Irma Makes Me Think of Disaster Films

September 12, 2017

As we waited to be evacuated, disaster films came to mind for discussion. Which one tops your list?

Which movie comes to mind when you found yourself rooting for the bad guys?

September 1, 2017

The first movie that comes to mind is Back Street which is about a man, played by John Gavin, who is tricked into marrying a drunk, when he really is in love with Susan Hayward's character. I was twelve or thirteen when I saw it for the first time, and I found myself wanting John to stand up to his …

What laugh-out-loud movie comes to mind?

August 25, 2017

My favorite moments are

  • The wedding shower scene from Brides…

What is your favorite movie from high school?

August 19, 2017

Yes, I'm very old. My favorite was Love Story. But, tell me, what exactly does "Love means never having to say you're sorry," mean? The way I see it, love means saying you're sorry. What do you think?

Any examples of a movie that's better than the book version?

August 11, 2017

I have no trouble thinking of examples of books that are better than their movie counterparts, but it's hard to find movies that are better than the book. How can a two-hour movie effectively outshine the original? Psycho comes to mind. It's not my favorite movie, but it's better than the book, than…

What are your thoughts on serving on a jury?

August 4, 2017

Twelve Angry Men was my first introduction to the jury system, and ever since watching that movie, I've longed to sit at the long table and argue the facts. I've never made it past the waiting room. I don't care if a haze of smoke hangs over the room as it did in the movie. I don't care if personali…

The Princess Bride-Why I love it

July 28, 2017

I have seen this wonderful parody innumerable times, but it never gets old. What's not to love? Giants, priests with lisps, Miracle Max, Pirates named Robert. What makes it so fun is the irony of it all. It's ironic that the hero and heroine are named Buttercup and Westley rather than, say, Aurora …

Who is the real heroine of Gone with the Wind: Scarlett O'Hara or Melanie Wilkes?

July 15, 2017

When I think of Gone with the Wind, Scarlett O'Hara comes to mind because it's her story. From the opening scene where she's surrounded by admiring suitors to her on-again-off-again relationship with Rhett Butler to her dogged determination to keep Tara by any means, we see her morph from a self-abs…

The Wonder of Forrest Gump

July 7, 2017

Have you ever had that sensation where you hear some new word or name or anything, and then it pops up several times within a day or so? When that happens you wonder if that new thing was always there but you hadn't paid attention to it?

That sens…

Modern Manna

March 16, 2017

It amazes me that I enjoy writing—me—the girl who spent more time counting the words on a page in school than writing them. So, imagine my surprise now more than a few decades later that I look forward to writing every day. It boggles my mind.

It all started when we lost everything, or so it …

I love to Tell a Story

I Love to Tell a Story

By Sherri Stewart

I love a good story. Having taught for well over thirty years, thousands of teenagers have heard my tales whether they wanted to or not. Indeed, many students have come back and told me the thing they remembered most about my class were the stories (not so …
