A friend recently recommended that I watch Desert Runners–a documentary about a group of runners trying to conquer some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet.  I am not a great runner, but I have always been drawn to it as a hobby {in theory, not so much in practice}.

One of my goals this year is to complete a variety of races, though, and I think this movie would be totally inspiring.  Everybody has to start somewhere…so I am going to start by watching about it on my couch :)  {If you have Netflix, it’s available to stream}.

Friday Night at the Movies – Remember the Titans

If you are looking for a family movie {tweens and older} that everyone will enjoy, check out Remember the Titans.  It came out several years ago, but it is great movie, with a feel-good message.  The movie is pretty clean, minor cussing, I think is about it.  It’s about a high school football team that is being racially  integrated for the first time.  It’s based on a true story, and is really well done.

Friday Night at the Movies – Valentine’s Day

We don’t do a ton around here on Valentine’s Day.  It’s kind of one of those commercial holidays that I don’t get behind so much {except for the chocolate–I can totally support that}.  BUT, in the name of a light-hearted movie, I thought I would check out Valentine’s Day tonight.  I never watched it when it came out a couple of years ago, and since Valentine’s Day falls on my ritual Friday Night Movie, it seems appropriate.

Valentine’s Day is a romantic comedy that boasts a star-studded cast.  Hopefully, at the very least, it will be worth a few chuckles.

A big thanks to Rubi who let me know that Bletchley Circle, season 2, is now available on Amazon Instant Video and Netflix.  For those of you who are not familiar, I started watching season 1 around this time last year, and completely loved it!  I am so excited to curl up in my jammies on the couch and watch the new season.

Friday Night at the Movies – Edward Scissorhands

One Hundred Dollar a Month reader, Brenda, sent me this suggestion awhile back:

“Trim your bushes on Saturday and that’s only after Friday Night at the Movies. That weeks selection needs to be “Edward Scissorhands”. There is no telling what creative design you will come up with!! Sorry, couldn’t help myself. Haha. But thank you for inspiring us all inside and outside our homes.”

If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a boy, who is created by a scientist and given scissors for hands. When the scientist dies, an Avon representative {you can’t make this stuff up} decides to bring him home to suburbia to live with her and her quirky family.

I haven’t watched the movie in ages, and thought I would pass along her suggestion.  Thanks Brenda!

Friday Night at the Movies – Living on One Dollar and Salam Neighbor

Recently, I stumbled on a small non-profit film production company that documented living on $1.00 a day  in rural Guatemala for 8 weeks.  I watched the first documentary Living on One Dollar {available on Netflix} just last weekend and thought it was an amazing {and heartbreaking} look into the lives of extreme poverty. to date, the documentary has raised more than $90,000 to alleviate poverty.

Now, these college buddies are filming Salam Neighbor {right now, as I type this}. It will document the EXTREME poverty and living conditions in Syria.  This time, they are living for one month along side Syrian refugees.   They are posting on social media sites regularly as they film, like Facebook and Instagramif you are interested in following along until the documentary is available.

I thought the first film was super interesting, and I expect Salam will be as well.

Friday Night at the Movies – The Giver

While The Girl was home for Christmas, we decided to watch The Giver.  It’s based on the book, by the same name, which I totally recommend reading before watching the movie.  It is kind of the original Dystopian society {in the same vein as Hunger Games, etc.}.  The book was originally published in ’94, so it’s been a pretty long wait on the movie.  It’s about a boy who starts to question the rules of a supposed Utopian existence.  Corruption, greed…it’s got it all.

Friday Night at the Movies – An Idiot Abroad

A friend of mine suggested that I check out An Idiot Abroad this Friday–she told me it combined my love of travel with my adoration of dry British wit.  It’s produced by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant–both of whom are hilarious.  They send their friend, Karl Pilkington {who has never been out of England} to experience the 7 wonders of the world, only they also add in a couple of “out of his comfort zone” tasks for him to complete.  Should be entertaining.

In light of the New Year, goal setting and all of that, tonight I am going to watch Bridget Jones’s Diary. It’s one of those movies that I can watch over and over, or have on in the background while I futz around the house–it always makes me laugh. If you haven’t seen it, seriously, you really should.  If you have, watch it again.  You’ll find that Hugh Grant is just as witty every single time you watch it.

Now that The Girl is home for Christmas break and I have my Friday Night Movie buddy back, I think tonight we will tuck in and watch Girl Most Likely.  It’s about a dysfunctional mother and daughter relationship that is forced to be rekindled after the main character {Kristen Wiig} has a mini breakdown.  First off, I love Kristen Wiig–she has genius comedic timing, and second, I think it should be kind of a light-hearted laugh.  Plus, it’s free for Amazon Prime member.  Wahoo!
