I’ve seen a few good movies lately, so thought I’d share!
I’ve had a movie-ful summer so far, that’s for sure. I’ve received a few gifts of gift cards and am thankful for their assistance in my habit!
Netflix: “Downton Abbey” is not a movie, but rather a PBS Masterpiece Theatre series – 7 episodes – and such a delight! I just found out today that season 2 starts in January! Something to look forward to…
Netflix: “HappyThankYouMorePlease” was even better than I was thinking it would be! Good stories about good people. I love Josh Radnor from HIMYM and he directed and starred in this film. Great music, too.
Theatre: “Crazy, stupid love.” was also much better than I thought it would be! The plot was unpredictable (which I find that I appreciate more and more … so many movies and books are simple and dead in their plots) and the characters were sweet. I was moved to tears a few times (could be simply feeling emotional) and laughed a lot.
“Horrible Bosses” was also a great time in the theatre! Many, many laughs!
I’m currently half-watching “The Band’s Visit” – a movie from the library – about an Egyptian police band who goes to Israel to play for the opening of an Arab Cultural Center but find themselves in the wrong town. It’s in Hebrew and English, so I don’t have to watch it as closely as a fully foreign film. And since it has a lot of music in it, too, it’s even easier to half-watch. It’s due tomorrow, so I have to get it watched! It’s enjoyable so far…
I’m going to start a new book tonight and that’s always exciting. Dang that library that entices me to get such fun books! But I actually reserved books off my TBR list on goodreads so have some books that I’ll be able to check off. Yay!
What are you watching or reading?
Off to read!
