Team TLC Extra Movie Night – Easter weekend 4 or 5 years ago Thomas and Lillian wanted to watch something with rabbits.
On such short notice this is what I came up with and we’ve watched it every year since! A 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit counts right??? Plus, Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal in this.
Quotes from Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart) …. “Every day is a perfect day.”
“I always have a wonderful time wherever I am and whoever I’m with.”
“In this world you must be oh so smart or oh so kind. For years I was smart. I recommend kind.”
Thomas says, “I like it a lot and I like watching it every year!”
Lillian skipped watching this year.

Team TLC Movie Night: Thomas’ choice – “The Bells of St. Mary’s” … We watched this about 4 years ago and Thomas wanted to watch it again.
Thomas says, “It was okay. It could have been better.”
Lillian says, “Good, liked the music, awesome, and my favorite character is Sister Benedict (Ingrid Bergman).”
I say, “A wonderful feel good movie.”

Team TLC movie night – My choice: “ How Green Was My Valley”
I say, “Although it did capture the issues of its time, this movie was incredibly heartbreaking.”
Thomas says, “I liked it, but it could have been better. I didn’t understand the story and nothing actually happened except for people dying.”
Lillian says, “Good, emotional, and liked some of the music.”

Team TLC movie night: Lillian’s choice – “Paris when it Sizzle”
Lillian says, “Good, suspenseful, liked the music, and liked some of the scenery.”
I say, “Absolutely ridiculous! And so fun to watch!!”
Thomas says, “It was good. Wished there had been an expansion of the vampire story.”
March 3 2018:
Team TLC Movie Night: Thomas’ choice – “Singin’ in the Rain” ☔️ Second time around for this one.
Thomas says, “It’s good. Really good classic. I really like it and it’s really funny. Like the sets; seemed realistic. Liked the ending.”
Lillian says, “Musical, good, awesome, like the Singin’ in the Rain song, liked Donald O’Connor (especially the “Make em Laugh” scene), and I recommend it 100%.
I say, “Love watching this classic with Thomas and Lillian!”

Team TLC extra movie night … My choice: “walk with me”
I say, “This is my second time to see this one. Requested a library purchase of it so we were the first to watch the library copy! YAY!! This documentary is incredibly calming and simply beautiful in the amount of mindfulness that exudes from it. I could watch over and over. Not to mention being narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch … such a soothing voice he has. Watch it and spread the message.”
Lillian says, “The parts I watched were good.”
Thomas says, “I really liked it! It was really good!”
February 17 2018:
Team TLC movie night: Lillian’s choice – “Only Yesterday”
Lillian says, “Good, liked the music, liked the plot, favorite character was the grown up version of Taeko, and suspenseful.”
I say, “Wonderful story of one coming to realize her oneness with nature and following her heart. So much loved it.”
Thomas says, “I guess it was okay. Could have been a lot better.”
February 10 2018:
Team TLC movie night: Thomas’ choice – “Watership Down”
Thomas says, “It was good.”
Lillian says, “Good, emotional, and suspenseful.”
I say, “Thomas and Lillian read the book a while ago so we finally got around to the movie. I thought it was suspenseful and glad it took us this long to get to it; due to the violence. I liked that there were two rabbit characters who could sense and see things and the difference between those who trusted them and those that judged them.”
