Movie-Fest brings a relief from the 107 degree heat!

 I decided the heck with it, I'm not fighting this heat! I'm staying inside and having my own little movie-athon! Period films are the subject this weekend. You're all invited!
 I even have the same pigment disorder they did in Elizabethan times..shark bait skin!
 Two serious films, then a love story! Do you remember her pink gown when she won the Oscar? Loved it!
Followed up with major eye-candy! I mean men in tights, I'm there!! I think I'm heading towards something lighter after these dark films, any suggestions? It's going to be between 103-107 degrees all next week! Invitations are still open to anyone who wants to come over! 
Maybe an Edwardian period film like Miss Potter should be next!

Great movies to watch I just watched a movie well a mini series on a DVD from the libraray called Daniel Deronda was an ok story but the clothes were to die for.Let me know if you end up watching it.It has one of the actors from Downton Abbey in it (do you watch that too?) I have Emma to watch soon also from library and an Aussie one called Come in Spinner is based in the 40s.

Yes, those are a bit dark, history is so sad to me. But they were great films, a must see.

I just love The Love Letter (Cate Capshaw) and Failure to Launch (Sarah Jessica Parker) these two are my all time favorites...funny...romantic... light.

These are all fabulous! I love the "Elizabeth" series. I have watched them over and over. Have you seen, "Marie Antoinette", "The Other Boleyn Girl", "Chocolat", "Girl with a Pearl Earring", Pride and Prejudice", or "Becoming Jane"? I love all of the too.

Light some candles, pour a glass of something yummy, sit back and enjoy yourself! :)))

Hey, If I lived closer I would so be there. I LOVE movies. Have you tried Memoirs of a Geisha, or Phantom of the Opera, love love those movies. They are studio movies. I turn them on to work. I just listen to the music in them. Have fun. ---hugs---Sandie

I ADORE MS Potter!!!! I have it & love it. Loved the ones about Elizabeth. Baby... those were some rough days back then! Did you see the amazing chandalier that Deb Hodges did a class on using all the images from MS Potter? DIVINE! IT IS TOO HOT TO THINK!!! I have had the drapes drawn trying to keep the house as cool as possible. I don't know what we'd do without the neighbors pool. MISS YOU! HUGS!
