Movie Review: The Shift

January 29 2017:

Extra movie night … “The Shift” – Third or fourth time and still as meaningful as the first. The theme of 2017 for me is “The Shift” so it seemed fitting to watch again. This movie is one big, gigantic, meaningful, love bubble … xoxoxo

“Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false presupposition that our truths and our ideals will serve us as hitherto. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.” ― C.G. Jung

Thomas says, “It makes more sense every time we watch it. It’s good and I like it.”

Lillian says, “It’s amazing and good. I agree with Thomas that it makes more sense each time we watch it.”

January 14 2017:

Team TLC Movie Night …. Thomas‘ choice: “Grave of the Fireflies” –

Thomas says, “Not what I was expecting. It was sad.”

Movie Review: Finding Forrester

January 7 2017:

Team TLC Movie Night: My choice – “Finding Forrester”

I say, “I love this story. ‘The first key to writing is just to write! Write from the heart. Review with the head.’ I love this story! Oh. Did I say, I love this story. I could have done with a lot less inappropriate language, yet, I understand it was representative of the characters.”

Thomas says, “Good movie. I liked it a lot. Funny in some parts, suspenseful, liked the characters. Really liked that Forrester wears his socks inside out due to the seams on the inside. I agree and wear my socks inside out. The people who make socks make them wrong.”

Lillian says, “Good, awesome, and my favorite part was near the end. I liked it!”

Team TLC movie night for March 17, 2012 – The Rescuers (amazon affiliate link)

★★★★★ – Thomas and Lillian both enjoyed this movie. They were laughing for many scenes and sat still for the entire move. I loved how the movie’s underlying story was that of faith … never lose faith in yourself and your dreams. Any G Rated movie with that message as it’s foundation gets more than five stars in my book. Enjoyed by all of Team TLC!!
