Movie (Movies) of Enjoyment

“Are there any good movies out there?” is a question I hear a lot. I think I’ve heard it more in the last few weeks than ever. So here we are. Across the country, we are all doing our best to stay inside, and I admit, its an adjustment. However, it is for our own good, and so I’m learning to love this time. Somewhere I read a quote that presented rain as unavoidable, so you better learn to dance in it. In essence, learn to enjoy the moments we have because they are here one minute and gone in the next.

What Are You Watching

I don’t know about you, but whenever I call my friends, I ask, ” what are you watching or catching up on?” It’s not strange for them to say a show or documentary that I am watching or have watched. Now, there are times I’m surprised, like when someone told me about Game of Thrones. So that brings me to today’s thought, or should I say today’s question.

Hello Stranger 

If you met a stranger, and they asked you, “What are your favorite five movies?” What would you say? What makes this movie, one that belongs in your favorites? Today I am the stranger, and I am asking for a friend and me. Think about it, with all of the options we have to stream movies, we could come away with a new favorite. Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, Amazon, and Apple are all options we can hunt down the recommendations.
