Friday Night at the Movies – The Breakfast Club

After The Girl and I watched Pretty in Pink last week, I casually mentioned that the movie was part of a whole group of “brat pack” movies from the 80′s.  The Girl asked me, “What’s the brat pack?”.  I stopped dead in my tracks.  Am I that old?  Have I failed my own child that I have never mentioned the brat pack before?  Could The Girl rat her hair if her life depended on it?

I really questioned all of the important stuff in life on this one people.  That’s why this Friday, we will once again be revisiting an iconic 80′s brat pack film.  It’s my duty as a mother to give The Girl culture, I take it very seriously.  That’s why we are going to watch The Breakfast Club.

Do you remember this one?  How long has it been since you watched it?  More importantly, which character did you identify with?  {Very deep question, I know, take your time.  Ha!}

Call the Midwife

Okay, so I know it’s totally not Friday, but have you seen Call the Midwife? While I was recovering from dental surgery I finished the first 2 seasons.  They. Were. Awesome.  Like, Downton Abbey awesome.  The first season is FREE if you have Amazon Prime, and I dare you not to be willing to pay for the second season once you have seen it!
It’s about midwives in East London in the 1960′s.  East London was notoriously poor, women had no access to birth control, lived in pretty meager conditions, etc.  The show follows these women as they give birth–all through the eyes of the midwives who help them.

Let me tell you, Bob, the British have done it again.  It is totally worth sitting down to watch if you haven’t already.

Season 3 won’t come out until some time in 2014, so you have plenty of time to catch up.

Let me know what you think,

Mavis

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch Pretty in Pink.  I was browsing through the Amazon Instant selections and saw it there.  It’s such an 80′s classic, and I haven’t seen it in years.  Maybe I’ll put on some pink lip gloss and play some Cindy Lauper while I assemble our movie night junk food–just for old times sake.  I hope The Girl can appreciate it!

Tonight The Girl and I are going to celebrate the final days of summer break with a classic:  The Great Outdoors.  Let me tell you Bob, this movie is a hoot.  I’ve seen it a million times, and it still makes me laugh.

John Candy is hilarious!

In an attempt to make our recent trip to Dollywood last a longer, tonight The Girl and I are going to watch Nine to Five.  {It’s a shout out to Lola and her love for Dolly Parton.}  Plus, it’s kind of an iconic 80’s movie, so it feels like I should watch it at least once.  The Girl and I ought to get a kick out of it.

9 to 5

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 – The Wizard of Oz

Since we are headed to Kansas tonight, I think it only fitting that my buddies and I watch The Wizard of Oz {yep, I know, not even a documentary!}.

I used to love this movie as a little girl, and with Amazon Prime, we can easily get it and stream it to my laptop in our hotel–there are definitely some perks to technology.  I think we will lay around in our jammies and eat junk food.  Sounds like the perfect ending to an awesome day if you ask me.

Tonight I’m on my own, so I am going to check out Earth Voice, Food Choice.  It popped up as a suggested movie for me on Amazon, and looks pretty interesting.  It is a documentary/lecture that talks about our reliance on air, water, and dirt–and how we are destroying it with our modern day practices.

It’s in a lecture form, so I can feel like I am taking a class and still be in my p.j.’s.  Ha.

Amazon Prime Members can watch Earth Voice, Food Choice for free.

Tonight The Girl and I are watching The Dark Side of Chocolate.  The recommendation comes from One Hundred Dollars a Month reader, Kathryn.  She wrote:

Mavis,

I enjoy your blog so very much. I notice that you often have coupons for chocolate and I would like to encourage you (in your busy life!) to take a look at Fair Trade chocolate. Here is a documentary about where our non-fair trade chocolate comes from. Thanks for taking a look (if you can, whenever you have time).

Thanks for the suggestion, Kathryn, I happen to have time today.

The documentary is FREE to watch.

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?

Tonight The Girl and I are going to watch Food Beware:  The French Organic Revolution.  It is a documentary {mostly in subtitles, as a fair warning} that explores the French people’s concern with pesticides and the dangers of modern day farming on the health of their people.  I am super curious to get another country’s take on something that is concerning to me too.  I am also hoping that they will show some of their proposed solutions to the problem.

Amazon Prime Members can watch Food Beware:  The French Organic Revolution for free.

A big thanks to reader Lisa who recommenced The Weight of the Nation, “Nashville Takes Action:  A City Battles Obesity.  It is a several part series done by HBO.  This episode is about what the city is doing to battle the obesity crisis.  It highlights people and city programs that are striving to combat the epidemic.  I don’t know about you, but I love these documentaries.  I always feel so motivated to make little changes in my own family’s eating and lifestyle–in the name of good health.

I found the full episode, so you can watch it right here for FREE.  {Yay!} or Amazon Prime Members can watch The Weight of the Nation, “Nashville Takes Action:  A City Battles Obesity”  for free HERE.
