Tag and Movie Review

My dear friend Bleah tagged me the other day, and I am just now getting around to it. Sorry it took me a few days, Bleah. But, better late than never, right? ;)

Rules: (And Bleah specifically said I have to follow them. *sigh*)
You are given 8 questions from the person who tagged you before, your job is to answer them, write 8 questions of your own, then tag 8 people with your questions. 

{one}-- Do you consider yourself a good person? Why or why not? "No one is good, except God alone." {Mark 10:18}
{two}-- Do you ever wish you lived someone elses life? Who's and why? There are pros and cons about everyone's life, so actually, I'm quite content with mine and I wouldn't trade it for the world. :)
{three}-- If you had one thousand dollars, and you could only buy one thing, and you had to keep it forever and ever, what would it be? Ummm, I would buy.... I have no idea!! That's too hard a question!
{four}--If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life what would it be? Dear Brielle by Owl City! *heart melts*
{five}-- What is your favorite color pen? Blue!
{six}-- If you died today what do you wish you would have done? Or are you happy with your life up do date? Oh wow, there are a lot of things I wish I would've done! For starters, I wish I would've told everyone I love just how much I appreciate them (and love them!:). I wish I would've laughed more, listened more, loved more and lived more (haha, metaphorically speaking:).
{seven}-- Pick the three people in your life you would be willing to live in the same house with for the rest of your life: Well, you (of course) Bleah!! Um, let's see... my friend Haley and... my future husband. lol :D
{eight}-- If blogger ceased to exist today, how would that make you feel? Sad but time heals. *sniff* ;)

Now here are my questions:
{one}-- Who is your role model/hero? Why?
{two}-- What would you say is your God given talent?
{three}-- If it were up to you, what would you do with the rest of your life? 
{four}-- If someone told you they had the ability to let you foresee your future, would you wanna do it? Why or why not?
{five}-- What is one of your pet peeves?
{six}-- What is one of your guilty pleasures?
{seven}-- If your mom gave you a choice between doing school, or chores, which would you choose?
{eight}-- What is the most daring thing you've ever done?

I tag:
Emily Shae
Elizabeth Rose
and the first person who comments and says, "I wanna do it!" :)

Now for the movie review. A week or two ago I saw Letters to Juliet. I thought I would do a review on it!

Amanda Seyfried
Chris Egan
Vanessa Redgrave
Gael GarcĂ­a Bernal
Franco Nero

PG for brief rude behavior, some language and incidental smoking.

Running time:
104 minutes.
Release date:
May 14, 2010
Sophie Hall and her fiance Victor go on a pre-wedding honeymoon to Italy. While there, Sophie finds a letter, hidden in one of the bricks on the Juliet's Wall, from years ago. Sophie ends up joining the Juliet's Wall team of ladies who write back the girls who leave the letters on the wall, and she writes back the girl who wrote this letter from years ago. A few days later a young man, Charlie, comes with his grandmother, Claire, to find Sophie. Claire is the old woman who wrote the letter Sophie found. She and her nephew, along with Sophie, go searching through Italy for the man Claire loved when she was a teenager. While on their adventure, Sophie realizes her true feelings for her fiance Victor, and the one she really loves, Charlie. Will she and Charlie end up together? Or is it too late?
The movie wasn't the greatest, but it was romantic, and at times, pretty humorous. So, for comedic, romance movie-lovers, you would probably enjoy this movie. There weren't any curse words, no sexual content (though, there was kissing) and no violence. The movie was clean (which you don't find that often in movies now days) and entertaining. A safe, fun "girls night" movie to watch with your girlfriends. ;)
Other than being very predictable, the movie was really cheesy. The acting wasn't that great, and sometimes it was hard to hear/understand the characters. My mom and I got quite frustrated with the Amanda Seyfried actress, because she mumbled and talked quietly all throughout the movie, which caused us to have to sometimes rewind, turn up the volume and listen closely (we were watching it on satellite, so there were no subtitles).
My rating:
I give the movie a 3 out of 5 star rating.
I hope you enjoyed reading the tag and movie review! :)

Hey Elderwen,
