Hey, I'm Melinda!
I love movies… absolutely adore them! I could not live without them! And I love just about every genre. There's nothing I enjoy more than sitting in a darkened room, in a comfy chair with plenty of snacks around me… and a great movie on the screen.
And I honestly couldn't tell you what my favourite movie is - I've seen too many and I simply can't choose. I know there are movies that I can see over and over again, and #1 hubby and I will do movie marathons of differing franchises - our biggest, and most taxing, being all 22 Avenger movies, over 3 weeks, before Endgame dropped.
I'm someone who has had a couple of careers - I'm a Metallurgist and I used to make steel, and then aluminium. I've been a Trainer, a Quality Engineer and a Safety Officer.
Right now - I am an over-qualified budgie breeder, a hobby I inherited from my dad.
I'm a mum of two brilliant young men and I live with #1 hubby, two dogs and a heap of budgies!!
So, what is 'Movie of the Day' supposed to be about?
When 'Movie of the Day' started out, I thought it would be a proper Movie Review site - but let's face it I might bugger up the facts; I have really strong opinions about the movie, which I am very keen to share; I describe the movie - in detail - and give away the ending. And I swear…. a lot!
Then I thought 'Movie of the Day' might be a proper Movie Blog - but to be honest I'm not really sure what a movie blog would look like… sooo…
In the end I decided that my strengths lay in my storytelling. So, 'Movie of the Day' writes short stories about well-known movies. They're weird stories; sarcastic stories; funny stories; quirky stories. I totally take the piss out of these movies!
You will note the short musical interludes in some of my short stories. Yes, that is me playing and/or singing a snippet of the film's soundtrack - at times quite badly - just to give you that fully submersive experience. You're welcome.
You will see that at the end of my Movie Re-tellings I have an emoji ratings system, for me to rate the movie... I think it works better than a star system. What do you think?
I am VEXED!!
