It was about a hundred year ago, give or take, that poet Robert Frost wrote a legendary poem entitled “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”.  His last name is Frost, so it’s fitting that he write about snow.  My surname unrelated, I am a huge film buff, and I decided to compose my own take on the poem.  If you are a WordPress user and you enjoy the poem, please feel free to “Press” it onto your own blog.  Here it is:

Stopping by Cinema for a Showing at Evening

Which film this is I think I know.
The showing is at the Regal though;
I just found me stopping here
To catch the next available show.

My little wallet must think it queer
To stop without a Redbox near
Between the theaters two and nine
The finest movie of the year.

He gives two Lincoln bills a shake
They ask if there is some mistake.
I must pay one more so I sweep
Out one more five-dollar bill which they take.

The film is lovely, dark and deep.
But I have suggestions to keep,
More films to watch before I sleep,
More films to watch before I sleep.


  1. This is great. I might even print it out for my bedroom wall. :) I wrote a poem about what goes wrong when one does visit the theaters: http://randomfilmbuff.com/2012/07/26/l/

  • Quick Recommendations

    No film is recommendable to everyone, because if it strongly appeals to many audiences, it's going to be poorly received by at least one audience. These 25 classics, however, I would recommend to eight and a half, if not nine in every ten people.
