My husband and I were sitting in a quiet home this evening, not usually quiet around here. Flipping channels on the TV. Nothing really good or interesting on. So we flipped on over to the pay per view channels. Even that only revealed a few good movies that we had already watch. The Martian, The intern. Mind you those were good, but to soon to watch them again.
Why do all the movie these days have to be horror flicks? Hollywood, if your listening. There are some of us out here that like a good rom-com once in a while. Maybe a good action movie? We like to go to a movie, be entertained and forget our own personal troubles. Be carried away into another dimension so we can worry about the damsel in distress or the geeky guy getting the girl and finding ever lasting happiness.
Hurray for Netflix bringing back Gilmore Girls, even if it is just a few episodes. Good clean fun, slight drama, slight romance. Another good show that is easy to get hooked on is a show made in Canada called Heartland. I started watching it and got hooked the first few episodes on the horses and the scenery. Love the mountains and the fact that it is relaxing to watch. You can watch this show with your 5 year old. Good clean family entertainment.
Don' t get me wrong, I am not a prude. I do like more adult films as well. Burlesque, Dirty Dancing, just to name a couple. I have read the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy. I mean, who hasn't, come on. Did I go see the movie? No, there was no way they could have made that series into a movie without it being XXX rated.
Now, Hollywood, are you listening? If you are out of ideas, contact me. I have a few suggestions for good movies or just pick up a copy of any one of my novels. If you like one or all of them, have your people call my people and let's do lunch.
But this is just my opinion.
