Well friends, Michael and I have joined the club, specifically the Netflix club.
I've never been all that into movies, but it is nice to get to settle down with a good movie, wind down for the evening with a little "happily ever after" tale (or something like that.)
The next step? Fill up our queue. Which has proven harder than I'd thought, mostly because the recommendations they give on there aren't all that helpful. And also because I'm kind of picky when it comes to what I'm going to watch: I don't enjoy anything that's too raunchy or too violent. (Michael and I were watching 24 and the sound of hearing necks break made my stomach lurch, so that stint is now over.)
Curious whether you might want to offer some suggestions in that vein. What movies have you seen lately that you'd give a hearty recommendation to?
To get a taste of what I mean, some of the movies I've seen lately that I enjoyed include: The Songcatcher (takes place in Appalachia during the Victorian era and is filled with awesome folk music), Coraline (beautiful little "cartoon"), Therese (looks at the life of Saint Therese, who Mother Theresa took her name after), The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio (set in the 1950s, tells the story of how a mom provided for her family by entering jingle-writing contests, and is based on a true story!) and Star Trek (seriously).
Alright, please pass along any suggestions. I appreciate it!!
