Cinematical Seven: Youth, Music, Sex, and the ’90s

I have seen all of these movies multiple times, memorized half of them, felt like they reflected my life at the time, etc. The one movie missing that I would include in my personal lexicon: Heathers



I was a little cautious when first trying this out because, honestly, it seemed too good to be true. But after downloading a couple of movies on my free account, and getting my account resurrected by super-quick and friendly customer service, I’ve decided to stick with this and explore it for a while.

There’s a nice selection of movies and tv shows available on the free account, and you get a generous 4 gigs a month to download.  That comes to about 4 movies.

I haven’t read much about this on the Internets so far, good or bad – would love to hear others’ experiences.

I have very fond memories of reading this trilogy, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, when I was pregnant. These books made me think of a more grown-up, heavier version of the Chronicles of Narnia.

Judging from the trailer, the casting, for the most part, seems spot on. Sam Elliot is perfect, Lyra looks spunky and brave, and Nicole Kidman is certainly fitting as a seemingly warm, really evil pseudo-mother. I can’t wait.
