Movie Night: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

August 31 2019:

Team TLC Movie Night … Well, let’s face it! Just me watching this one. It was my turn to choose: “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”

I adore Judi Dench and Maggie Smith so couldn’t resist this random find on the library shelves; found while pulling holds during a volunteer shift at the library.

A charming feel good story that reminds it’s never too late for new beginnings or to find love.

Movie Night: The Post

July 28 2019

Team Member C Movie Night last night: “The Post”

Got almost everything unpacked. Everything double washed. All luggage disinfected and put outside to air out. I’m all about spreading love, yet, this virus must go! I ain’t messing around!

Then … treated myself to a movie I’ve been wanting to watch. Totally enjoyed the escape. Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks were phenomenal!!

If you enjoy the movie night posts I share, and you are moved to do so, I’d be grateful if you’d like to treat me to a coffee! Oceans of gratitude! Thank you! –Camilla

Based on the true story of the commercial airplane which was forced to land in the Hudson in 2009. With all 155 people on board surviving. 🙏💜

I truly enjoyed the acting, was glued to it, and it was interesting to learn more about this event.

Movie Night: Mary Poppins Returns

May 20 2019:

Team TLC Extra Movie Night – “Mary Poppins Returns” – I put this on hold at the library in December or January. It was our turn!

Lillian says, “Good, musical, suspenseful, 100% recommend, and my favorite character is Mary Poppins.”

I say, “It was okay. Perhaps it’s the mood I’m sunk into right now. Meh.”

Thomas sat this one out.

Movie Night: Harvey

April 26 2019:

Team TLC extra movie night. “Harvey” – A yearly tradition around Easter for the past 5 or 6 years. A little late this year as I forgot to reserve it at the library.

Why a tradition at Easter? Well. One of the main characters is a 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit! Ha!

I say, “I adore this movie. Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal!! My favorite quote from the movie is by Elwood P. Dowd (played by Stewart) … “I always have a wonderful time wherever I am and with whom ever I’m with. My mom used to say to me, ‘In this World you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ For years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.”
Another favorite quote by Veta (played by Hull) … “I don’t want my brother to be normal. I don’t like those people.” You’ll have to watch it to get this one.

Thomas says, “It was good, as usual. I like the music. Especially the music for the scenes with Harvey.”

Lillian didn’t want to watch this year so we watched it while she’s at The Romano Duo’s place.

Movie Night: The Lady in the Van

April 20 2019:

Team TLC movie night: My choice – “The Lady in the Van”

I say, “I adore Maggie Smith. An absolutely touching story … based on a true story. ‘It is in writing that we find ourself.’ – Alan Bennett … You got that right Mr. Bennett. I didn’t even realize that one of the main two characters is a writer. Well. Hot damn! Double touché! …. I loved it!”

Lillian says, “It was good and I liked the music.”
