This is AWESOME!  Okay, so it’s not a movie, but it you haven’t seen it, it’s totally worth the 7 minutes.  Plus, now I have an extra hour and half that I can be scattering pink flamingos through the yard.

Enjoy!

The HH gave me Ethel, an HBO documentary about Ethel Kennedy for Christmas, and let me tell you, Bob, I LOVED it!  It was a fascinating look into the life of Robert F. Kennedy’s wife.  It’s one of those stories that makes reminds you that we all have challenges, and handling them with grace and dignity goes a long way in the end.

Friday Night at the Movies – Still Mine

Tonight I plan on watching Still Mine.  It’s a love story about a man and women who are well into their golden years and now facing health issues.  As the woman’s memory fades, the husband decides he is going to build them a smaller house, so that they can maintain their independence without having the burden of more than they can handle.  He chooses a spot on his own land and starts to build.  As he builds, he is faced with all the bureaucratic red tape and permit issues he hadn’t planned on, and finds himself potentially facing jail time.  It’s one of those movies that gives you hope that real love lasts a lifetime, and shines a light on just how complicated life has become.

Let me know what you think if you decide to watch it–or if you have already seen it.  Did you love it? Hate it? Can’t wait to watch it over and over?

Friday Night at the Movies – Upstairs Downstairs

I’m giddy because I think I’ve stumbled on a new series to watch {okay, new to me}.  It’s called Upstairs Downstairs.  It’s set in England {eeee!} and is about a family who takes over an old house {165 Eaton Place} and breathes new life into it.  This one is set in the 1930′s, but it is still complete with a full house of staff, and the drama that comes with socialites.  The best part is that it’s totally free to watch on Amazon {whether you are a Prime member or not}.

Friday Night at the Movies – Desert Runners

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.
