Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #92 - Napoleon Dynamite

Welcome Everyone to our 92nd movie challenge where this week we are featuring the 2004 movie Napoleon Dynamite, which won 10 awards including a Grammy! As everyone starts back to school, we thought it would fun to do this movie because its "flippin sweet"! If you haven't seen this movie - it might seem strange at first because its almost like a different quirky world that you get transported to as you see things in the eyes of Napoleon, but we are sure that it will have you laughing - and maybe even make you want to dance along with Napoleon in one special dance scene that is definitely memorable!!! The challenge requirement this week is to create a card with a pocket or a container card - but the MOST important thing is to completely have FUN!!!! We hope you will get your dance groove on as you get ready for fall and play along with our Napoleon Dynamite challenge!!!!

Brooke's Project inspired by the movie~ Napoleon Dynamite

This is Napoleon backpack that he found at the D.I.(local thrift shop) he thought it was FLIPPIN' SWEET... (Which is a total UTAH/IDAHO~ ism..)

What would Napoleon fill in this said backpack of his... Well CHAPSTICK of course because "My Lips hurt real bad" as he would say... Napoleon being the groovy nerd that he is would take the time to pick out very special pencils.. So I found some that honored Napoleon...
"OH MY HECK" (another UTAH/IDAHO~ism). Napoleon would have also pick out a few items for his locker.. These magnets should do the trick. That way he can have a picture of his favorite brother KIP who reminds him daily that he had mad computer skills and "Don't be Jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day Napoleon..."
Have you ever seen a LIGER? I have.. We have a stuffed on at a museum here in Utah.. I remember seeing SHASTA as it was called when I was little.. "Liger's are Mystical creators you know". ( at least Napoleon thinks so)

This movie is one of those cult movies you just don't get the first time you see it.. But even days later you find yourself laughing at a line or scene from the movie and you get sucked into watching it again and laughing your head of... This movie cracks me up the little town of Preston, Idaho is just over the border from Utah.. So basically this little town was just like any little town in Utah.. Any yes the saying are really said.. Like HECK YA instead of HELL YA. You wouldn't want to swear now would you.. LOL. One of my favorite scenes of all time is Napoleon doing the dance for Pedro's campaign.. Laugh you butt(as we would say in Utah/Idaho~ism's) funny. John Header is such an amazing character actor.. How could you not laugh you pants of while making this movie...

to you all.. Can't wait to see what your favorite saying from this movie are...

Sankari's Project inspired by the movie~ Napoleon Dynamite

CONFESSION TIME: The first time that I sat down to watch this movie - I thought I would REALLY NOT like it - I found the first 15 minutes SO strange and told my DH that I thought this movie was really NOT my style - but by the end of the movie - I was totally cracking up and absolutely love this movie! There are so many memorable quotes from this movie - all that crack me up in different ways - but my favorite quote would have to be when Napoleon starts to list the "flippin' sweet" skillz that girls like guys to have"like Numchuck skills, Bowhunting Skills, computer hacking skills" LOL!!!! I still laugh and even as I am typing those skills - I can totally hear Napoleon's voice in my head saying those words. So I printed out the graphics of the three skills and then created this card with three pockets for them:

I absolutely can't tell you HOW much fun I had making this card - it was so nice to watch little snippets of this video and totally crack up while crafting :)

I hope you guys will play along to this flippin' sweet movie challenge!!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)
Thank you to all those who played along with us with our Gandhi movie challenge - it was beautiful to read your posts about your memories about the movie or what you were affected by. We loved every single card and post! Ira's card caught our attention and we would love it if you would join us next week as our guest designer!

Who's going to be our next guest designer? It could be you! All you have to do is to create a card, layout, 3D creation - that is inspired by the movie: Napoleon Dynamite and uses the challenge requirement to create a pocket or container card in your creation. You creation can be inspired by anything in the movie, from the themes in the movie, to the dialogue, costumes, character, music, lyrics, quotes, events in the movie, furniture, time period - anything at all that inspires your creative "light bulb" to go on!! Please share with us - where you got your inspiration from because we love reading about your creative process!!!

You can post your challenge entry anytime from now till Thursday August 26th at 8pm CST! Can't wait to see your flippin' sweet creations!!!
Big hugs,

FLIPPIN' SWEET! Honestly girls, I see the challenge each week and always intend to play but never do, but this week there is just no doubt!!! My daughters, I kid you not, can recite almost every line from this movie by heart, AND my oldest even sounds like Napoleon! Add in the fact that I grew up in Napoleon, Ohio and I HAVE to play this week!!! I think it's worth watching again, too!!! Right after I bone up on my bow-hunting skills!! (And I might make DD's play along, too! LOL)
