Hello there,
great blog i would like to tag you. The purpose of this tag is to list 4 of your favourite film scenes ever. You are probably limited to what you can find on youtube or elsewhere as a clip of the scene is needed. You can also tag four people if you like. You can see a list of mine on my blog. thanks.
