Today on the Monday Movie Meme, the Bumbles have the Boston Marathon on their minds, therefore our topic will be all about running. Although our beloved Bumbles aren't running the marathon, they've lived or worked on the famous route most of their lives. Today will mark the 115th of this famous race, so get your brains kick-started and try to think of movies that feature some form of running. Not an easy one! Here are a few that came to mind:
1. Chariots of Fire - of course. I feel like this one is the no-brainer, and was tickled that Molly and Andy didn't take it. Now that darned song is stuck in my head.
2. The Incredibles - one of the members of this talented family, Dash, had the gift of speed. I love this movie, but the cherry on top of the whole thing was Sarah Vowell as the voice of Violet.
3. Juno - it is hard not to think of Paulie Bleeker when you mention running, skinny legs, headband and all. (I have a fondness for headbands you see.) Despite the fact that we've got a teenage pregnancy here, I find this movie completely charming, with great acting and the rapid-fire and uber cool screenplay written by Diablo Cody.
4. Run Lola Run - dare ya to watch this one and not feel tired by the end. This is a really fun movie about a girl (with killer red hair) that is in a race against time to save her loser boyfriend.
