#atozchallenge Theme Reveal

          I was tempted to let this blog sleep and dream during April, but I've decided to sign up my dream blog for another year of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.   A Faraway View has been entered into the Challenge for the past two years so I figure why let it miss the 2014 Challenge.

           My theme will be simple and one related to a subject that I enjoy--The Movies.   During the April Challenge I will be looking at some of my favorite films that seem dream-like or have to do with dreaming.  You may be familiar with some of these films and some may be new to you.    I hope you will visit these posts to let me know your own thoughts about the films I've chosen or add some of your own that fit under the letter of the day.

           Posts will be very short with only a brief synopsis or reasons why I've chosen the film.  I will include an image such as the poster or a scene from the film.  If you love the movies like I do and are fascinated by dreams then this will be a month of two-fers for twenty-six days.

           For more information about the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge or to sign up go to the A to Z Blog.

           To find the complete list of other blogs revealing their themes for April go to A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal Blogfest.   Since I'm posting a day early for this many of the links may not lead to a theme reveal post until after you've read this.  The Theme Reveal officially starts on Friday March 21st.

            Are you participating in this year's Blogging from A to Z Challenge?   Do you like movies that are dream-like?   Do you think dream sequences in films are usually portrayed well?

  1. Hi Arlee - am preparing for leaving SA for States this p.m. Have tried to put name down for Them Reveal - tomorrow - will ask my friend to see if she can help. But I think maybe there was a problem with the host of linky tools. Not sure ..

  2. I'm not much of a movie buff but I do like dream sequences. Wizard of Oz has to be the best dream out there though. Can't think of anything that tops it, except that one season of 'Dallas' when Pam wakes up to see Bobby's really alive so that whole previous season where he died was her dream. They did that with the last episode of St. Elsewhere was the dream of an autistic boy.

  3. I remember "Canterbury Ghost" in b/w, Robert Young. The poor cowardly ghost? I remember the ghostly appearance and the humor that surrounded it.

  4. All you head to say was movies. I'm in. Can't wait to read your posts.

  5. Susan --The Linky Lists go down sometimes but they usually aren't down for too long.

    JoJo -- There are some pretty good movies out there with dream sequences or are dreamlike all the way through.

    Susan Kane -- I don't remember having seen that film, but I do like films of that era.

    Sydney -- So much you can do with movies.

    Tyrean -- I enjoy reading blog posts about film.


  6. Love the movies. ...This will be fun. Hope you will feature the movie "last action hero".
    " matrix" & "gravity"..;)
