Fandango’s Friday Flashback 01/17/2020

This is my twenty first entry for Fandango’s Friday Flashback. Here’s a link to Fandango’s blog http://fivedotoh.com/2020/01/17/fandangos-friday-flashback-january-17/

I’m going to write about two blog posts.


This was a post that I wrote on January 17th, 2014 about a couple of movies that were released on that day. I actually watched four of these movies. All of the other eight movies sounded interesting and I might check them out when I have some time off of work next week. Two of these movies were Hindi Bollywood movies. I highly enjoyed watching both Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and Summer In February. Unlike fifteen  weeks ago we did have a Bollywood movie that was released on January 17th, 2014 but we did not have any Telugu Movies released on this day.


This is post that I wrote last year for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday Challenge. This post is in response to Debbie’s at Travel With Intent blog Six Word Saturday Challenge. I hope y’all enjoy my new post. I wrote about movies and quotes that had six words in them. I highly enjoyed writing this post since many of my favorite movies and quotes have six words in them.
