Liebster Blog Award!

My blog has been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by Pearl of Tyburn at!  I am very grateful!  Thank you very much!
The rules for this award are: 1. Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.  2. Answer their 11 questions. 3. Post 11 random things about yourself.  4. Nominate 11 other blogs with under 200 followers for this award. 5. Ask them 11 questions.
So here are Pearl of Tyburn’s 11 questions.
1. What do you consider the greatest movie of all time and why?
I believe that the greatest movie of all time is the Jesus film by Campus Crusade for Christ.  A well-made adaptation of the Gospel of Luke, it has travelled the world with its important message.
2. What do you consider the worst movie of all time and why?
I’m afraid I am not able to answer this question.  I have enjoyed most movies I have watched (except for Sybil Ludington and Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel).  However, picking the worst of film history is beyond me.
3. Who is your favorite actor/actress?
Difficult to answer.  One actress’s performance that I was impressed by was Madame Defarge in A Tale of Two Cities (1936).
4. Who is your least favorite actor/actress?
I don’t know, but I have seen some rather poor performances.
5. What scene from a movie do you find the most inspirational?
The most inspirational scene for me is from The Longest Day, when the British paratrooper commander remembers his orders to “hold until relieved”, with only a handful of men.  Honorable mention to Brotus (from Pendragon) ordering his line to be extended and meeting the criticism of “it’s certain death” with the retort “Then we die here!”
6. What movies have made you laugh the most?
Bugs Bunny, hands down, even though it is not a movie.
7. What movies have made you cry the most?
I’m not usually one to cry though movies, but probably Mrs. Miniver.
8. What movie do you find the most hoaky?
Definitely Sybil Ludington, but honorable (dishonorable?) mention to the end song of The Longest Day.
9. If you could only watch one more movie forever, what would it be?
The Longest Day.
10. What are some movies you’ve wanted to watch but never gotten the chance?
Beyond the Mask (I’m an extra in it!)
11. What are your top 5 movies you would like me to watch and review?
Beyond the Mask
Alone Yet not Alone
The Lego Movie
11 Random Things about myself
1.      I love the Lord Jesus Christ, and am glad to be part of a church that loves Him too.

  1. Hi, Jordon,

    I am really eager to see "Pendragon" and "Alone Yet Not Alone", but I don't know how to access them, as they are no where to be found in my library system, or anywhere else that I've seen! Do you know where I would be able to find them, as well as "Behind the Mask" and "The Widow's Mite"? Btw, what is the gist of the first movie, and it what part are you an extra? Sounds fun!

    I love Zulu and Waterloo, and have every intent of reviewing them soon! You really must watch them; I think they'd be right up your alley. I have yet to see "Lego", but I have quite a few friends who have urged me in that direction, so I will probably eventually cave ;-)

    And I don't like root beer; I've only played chess twice, but would like to more often; my favorite historical period is "The Long 18th century", or basically from the Tudors to the Hanoverians; my favorite movie is "A Man for All Seasons"; my least favorite is (among others!) "The Last of the Mohicans"; and the important thing I've learned while blogging is that it is a very communal activity, and we are interdependent with all those who read and comment. So in some ways, we are almost public servants! ;-)

    What does hosting a giveaway mean? Could you please elaborate?

    1. Thanks for your comment!

      1. Pendragon is available for purchase at both and Christian Book Distributers. The same goes for The Widow's Might.

      2. Unfortunately, Alone Yet Not Alone has not yet been released on DVD, and Beyond the Mask is not even in theaters.

      3. The gist of Beyond the Mask is that an assassin who has been hiding his true colors realizes that only in Christ can he find his true identity. My role as an extra is a rich Philadelphia citizen, who is desperately hoping that his scenes aren't cut out of the movie!

      Also, I agree that community interaction is very important for blogs, and I thank you for your interest and comments here.

    2. About hosting a giveaway

      Should you decide to host it, you can choose two products from Through All Ages's website and contact me (probably through my blog since I don't have a contact form on my website). I will ship them out, free of charge. One is for you to keep (as my thank-you for doing this) and the other is to be raffled away. You would be in charge of the raffle conditions and drawing a winner.

      I hope this helps, as this is the first time I have ever attempted anything like this. If you have more questions, please ask. Thank you for your interest!

  2. Done.

    Thanks, Jordan!
