Movie Night: TALES from EARTHSEA

November 9 2020

Team TLC Extra Movie Night – “TALES from EARTHSEA”

A studio ghibli movie we had not seen. In some aspects it was eerily similar to current events. A fever that begins with the animals, spreads to the humans, along with a mysterious imbalance that threatens to destroy the land. 😳

Thomas says, “It was good. I liked it.”

Lillian says, “Good, liked the background music, and my favorite character was Arren’s shadow.”

Movie Night: The Secret Garden

November 7 2020

Team TLC movie night – Lillian’s choice: “The Secret Garden” – the original 1949 version

Lillian says, “Like the story, favorite character is Mary, like the background music, and a favorite story ever since I was a young girl.”

We’ve seen a couple of versions, but had never seen the original. I think this one is my favorite. Love Margaret O’Brien! A true testament to the healing power of nature and love. ❤️❤️❤️

Thomas says, “It was good.”

Movie Night: Dark Waters

November 2 2020

Extra movie night for me “Dark Waters”

Maddening, mind-blowing, disgusting.

I give myself a hard time for how much time and effort I put into researching just about every single thing I buy. From the smallest household object to Thomas’s new bed. I will no longer be so hard on myself. There’s a reason I put all this effort into it.

This movie dramatizes attorney Robert Bilott’s case against DuPont over their contamination of a West Virginia town of unregulated chemicals. The case began in 1998 and still continues. 🤯🤯🤯

Movie Night: Kiki’s Delivery Service

October 25 2020

Team TLC Extra Movie Night – “Kiki’s Delivery Service” …. This has turned into an October tradition. We’ve seen it many times.

Lillian says, “Good, good for Halloween or any other time, favorite character is Kiki, and I like the background music.”

Thomas says, “It’s my second favorite Studio Gibli movie. Totoro is my favorite.”

Movie Night: Fahrenheit 451

October 24 2020

Movie Night for me and Thomas – My choice: “Fahrenheit 451” (1966 version)

I recently read Ray Bradbury’s, The Zen of Writing. He wrote about how the book, Fahrenheit 451 came to be, mentioning that a movie was made.

When I searched for it, I found this one and a more recent production (will be watching that one soon, too). I couldn’t find this streaming online, but to my delight, the library had it! This particular DVD has many bonuses. One of which is an interview with Bradbury! Very cool!!
