Summer Solstice is Upon Us!

You've found the Sexy Solstice Blog Hop!! This is the stop for Morgan Q. O'Reilly and J. Morgan. If you're lost or want to find the beginning, just go to JustRomance.Me and get on board!

Starting today we're celebrating the longest days of the year with the JustRomance.Me group of bloggers and hopping from on sexy fun blog to the next!

With the exception of the queen of the frigid north, Morgan O, we're fighting summer-melt-you-into-a-puddle conditions. Ignore her whining about days in the high 70s. She doesn't know what real summer is. Okay, so she doesn't have A/C in her house. Who needs it in Alaska? Seriously, go sit on a glacier.

That said, what better way to spend those long hot summer days and nights than with the greatest romantic movies of all time, a comfy chair, and the air conditioning tickling your toes? Morgan O. and I decided to help you out by giving you our top 100 movies of all time. The electric bill is on you though. We do movies. How low you set the thermostat is all you. 

So how did we decide which movies to slip into our top 100? Simple. They're the movies we, meaning the twin Mo's, can watch over and over again. We just can't live without them. Now you have to bear with us as starting tomorrow we'll get this thing Summered up with the first 25 movies and count down until we hit that magic numero uno. 

We invite you to play along with us. Hit us with the movies you think are too low, don't belong or just hit you in the heart. Even better let us know which movies you can't live without. Believe me, our DVD shelves are over flowing like crazy, just like yours are. Yes, it's true, we have no lives. Sad isn't it? Good thing we write for a living or we'd never have a vacation.

By vacation we mean, those little trips  inside our heads, that you get to read.

So get in the game! Comment to be entered into the drawing for whatever it is we're giving away.  I know there's a Nook loaded with great reads up for the Grand Prize at the end of the hop. We'll also be doing some impromptu give-aways as the spirit moves us.

And as a bonus, if your favorite love story has not been made into a movie, tell us what it is and why you think it deserves to be on the big screen. If you just happen to mention of our our books, well, you might get special preference!  

Stick around, view the pages listed to the right and be sure to say nice things to us. We really like that!

I adored the movie Tristan and Isoldolde, but I am definitely looking forward to a movie of 50 Shades.

Alianne said...

Call me an eternal kid but I will always love Princess Bride as the ultimate romance movie. ^_^

Happy solstice!

One movie that I will never get tired of watching is While You Were Sleeping.

Bridget Jones Diary gets my vote everytime!

Kerry said...

Ghost. I love that movie. And Gone with the Wind. :) thanks for the blog hop!

While You Were Sleeping is a great one to watch over and over again. The only one mentioned here that I don't remember seeing is Tristan and Isoldolde. Moving that do the To Be Watched list. We've settled on our top ten to be revealed on Sunday. We'll post 76-100 tomorrow! Thanks for stopping and commenting!

For me, it's usually specific moments in a movie. I love the part in NORA where James Joyce whispers in Italian to his wife as he lies blissfully satisfied across a sun-streaked bed in Rome, or the part in LOVE SONGS where Ismael sings to Erwann as they happily make out in their underwear on a bed. As for one I enjoy watching all the way through, THE GIRL ON THE BRIDGE (a French movie with Daniel Auteuil and Vanessa Paradis) slays me every time, and Wong Kar-Wai's CHUNGKING EXPRESS is always fun.


J. Morgan said...

Wow, those are some great movies. Who knows, well we do, some of them might pop up over the next few days. Hopefully, we'll list some you already love and hit you with some new ones to try out.

I agree with the others. I love watching While You Were Sleeping! I will never get tired of it.
I also love Return to Me. The movie is perfect.
I also love and with it right in the title Love, Actually. So many little stories to choose from in one movie. Also another one is The Family Stone. Absolutely love it.

I could talk about movies for a long time!

So thanks!

It's pretty dated now, but I always loved "Pretty Woman"

Dated doesn't matter. A classic is a love story that endures. Note all the Cary Grant titles on the list. Pretty Woman is in the Top 100.

Oh I love Hope Floats and Dirty Dancing those were movies I used to sit around when I was younger and watch over and over with my mom and grandma. I love Romeo and Juliet from 1996.
