February 20 2018:

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!”

Movie Night: Watership Down

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.”

Movie Night: Victoria and Abdul

February 3 2018:

Team TLC movie night: My choice: “Victoria & Abdul” – I put this on hold at the library back in November. It was finally our turn!

I say, “I adore Judi Dench and the strong characters she plays. She’s funny. She’s no non-sense. She’s strong. And even more so, love the roles where her character remembers her humanity and compassion. Loved the Rumi quotes too.”

Lillian says, “Good, I liked the music, awesome, and liked the scenery.”

Thomas says, “It was really good. Similar to Her Majesty Mrs. Brown.”

Movie Night: Brave

January 27 2018:

Team TLC Movie Night: Lillian’s choices – “Brave”

Lillian says, “Good, liked the music, liked the main character, liked the scenery at the end, and my favorite part is the end.”

I say, “I had been putting this off due to the violence. I still didn’t like this aspect, yet love the theme of breaking tradition and living from ones heart. Quote from the movie, ‘Our fate lives within us.'”

Thomas says, “I guess it was good.”

Movie Night: Phoebe in Wonderland

January 6 2018:

Team TLC movie night – Lillian’s choice: “Phoebe in Wonderland”

Lillian says, “Good, my favorite character was Phoebe, and awesome.”

I say, “I really enjoyed this movie. I resonated with the mom character to points of sobbing. I resonated with the dynamic of having a younger sibling who assumes the role of an older sibling …. and harboring anger and sadness about having to assume that role. I highly recommend this for fellow special needs parents.”

Thomas says, “It was good. I identified with all of the characters.”

Movie Night: Milton’s Secret

December 30 2017:

Team TLC movie night – My choice: “Milton’s Secret”

Thomas says, “I liked it and it was enjoyable. Liked the topic, but wasn’t as realistic as it could have been.”

Lillian says, “Good, awesome, like the movie name, and like the plot.”

I say, “I was so much looking forward to watching this after reading the children’s book by Eckhart Tolle. Love Donald Sutherland, yet was disappointed in the movie. Suppose I was hoping for something much deeper and this seemed to barely skim the surface.”
