There Is Nothing Like A Good Movie


When You Watch One You Feel It

It pulls at your heart strings

For me it is light comedy

It doesn't need a lot of swearing

A few innuendos will bridge the gap

With an underlying positive message

Twists and turns that aren't always predicatable

Good humor and fast paced

The actors and actresses performances are moving

I am always surprised what it takes to make a good script

After a good movie I am wiped out

I need some time to myself

That is where I try to process

The movie that I enjoyed

With all the movies made

How many movies make the grade?

Some might make the first round cut

Then fail to deliver in the end

Leave you feeling empty

When you first began watching

You were pleasantly surprised

Shocked at the turn of events

Wishing and wanting to go up and above

Begins to unravel

They skip around too much

I lose interest

The movie that can make you want to

Stay in your seat

Even when your bladder begging for relief

The final question is yet to be answered

Would you watch it again?

The answer is yes

I watched a movie called Instant Family

It had just the right amount of believablity

With just enough humor to carry it through

It brought some light to adoption and it's challanges

It is not for everyone

The children have dealt with a lot of issues

Some we can handle and some we never thought about

Life is not black and white

But so many variations of every color under the sun

I would reccomend it to a friend

You might walk away

With a tear in your eye

Life doesn't guarantee happiness

With some work

We can make a tough situation better than it used to be

Then we can dream of different ways

To leave us with the happiness we so deserve

Here is a little clip to get you enticed

Genna East I think well -made movies can help us all come together and enjoy a good laugh or cry. I think most people deal with the same struggles and challenges at different times in their lives. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. May today be a beautiful one that you may enjoy from beginning to end.

So true! There don't seem to be many truly good films these days, but the ones that are worth watching are just wonderful...they can lighten the day, inspire and create thought provoking moments that we cherish and take with us.

Gypsy Rose Lee Put the home movies on and watch a little. Your husband smiled and laughed because of you. You made him as happy as he made you. That will never change. You can always enjoy and keep his memory alive by still appreciating how special you both are. If you never watch the movies again then I think you will miss out. My mother has been gone for six years and my father for twenty- eight years. When I get blue and miss them so much. I take out their pictures and laugh and cry constantly. Then I do many things that would make them proud. I write about our love and the things they have taught me. Keeping their memory alive by sharing with my friends and relatives. If I stopped doing this I would be sad. It was if they never lived. If it is too much try a picture or two. Go at your own pace. Sit with a close friend. Share and share more. Your friend might have things she or he wants to share too. I don't have any home movies of my parents. I would do anything to see their smile and hear their voice and laugh. Remember things break. Even home movies don't last forever. You might want to make a copy so you will have a backup just in case. I hoped I was of some help. Everyone has to go at their own pace. You are in control. I only want to see you happy. Thank you for sharing and caring.

But the most important question is How can I bring to look through all the home movies that were taken during my soul mate's living years. How can I get ready to see him on the screen alive and well and smiling and laughing? I need to look at these movies over to know what is there and I don't know what is the best way to prepare myself for what I will be watching.

Gypsy Rose Lee You have been the first to comment on so many of my hubs. I send you lots and lots of thank you hugs. There is something so wonderful about someone reading something that was just an idea hours ago. Then I put time and effort and turned those ideas into reality. I know how hard it is for me to write and I think of how much more effort movie directors have to go through to make it work. The sad part is even after all their effort their movie could still be a bust. Wrong timing or just up against another great movie. I am a lot like you. I keep my paper and pen handy for any thoughts that explode in my head while the movie is playing. I found if I wait till the movie is over my thoughts leave as quickly as they have come. The ideas are like lightning bolts that give me a jolt. Thank you for reading and have you seen this movie yet? Have a very beautiful night.

Kathryn I wish I could just walk away from a bad movie. I keep thinking the movie will get better even if it doesn't. I feel I owe it to the director to watch the whole movie. I think they put so much money into making the movie they have to know when the movie is dragging or spiraling out of control and doomed for disaster. Then again maybe not. I also love looking behind the scenes and what it cost and how they based it on a real- life family. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Have a splendid day.

Mark Tulin Movies are a great form of entertainment. I love a movie that makes you think and dream. I could easily get lost and watch movie after movie and never leave the couch. Do you have a favorite scene in the movie? When both were busting up the house in the rehab was my own favorite. Thank you for reading and sharing. Happy movie watching.

Mark Tulin from Palm Springs, California on March 30, 2019:

I think you summed up my movie watching. I always take time to process as well as rate. Enjoyed it very much.

Kathryn from Windsor, Connecticut on March 29, 2019:

A good movie does really feel good. If a movie is too boring I will stop watching it. But once in a while a movie that has a slow start will surprisingly turn out good! Instant Family was a good one. A bit of emotional rollercoaster, as I recall.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on March 29, 2019:

I have to say depends on the movie. Comedies I can watch over and over again on my videos. When I feel in a murderous mood there is always Fatal Attraction and when I think I can handle it Beaches which always makes me cry. What I need to look at and decide what is what are my home movies. When I think what they contain and my love alive and talking and laughing I cannot touch them. I am determined to at least watch two this weekend, finish a bottle of wine, and hope to survive the night. SIGH Then I am sure I will be ready for at least a dozen poem that will just come pouring out. Must remind myself a bottle of wine, notepad, and pen, and in goes the video.
