Latest News: Team TLC Favorite Movies

Team TLC has movie night just about every Saturday night. We are a TV-less house but we DO have a family movie night once per week.

I use this projector which I acquired when facilitating trainings, Epson EX7220 Wireless WXGA 3LCD Projector, 3000 lumen color, 3000 lumen white (V11H550020), (amazon affiliate link) connected to my MacBook and project our movie onto my bedroom wall! Fun Stuff Y’all!

We mostly watch G rated movies. However, I have found some PG movies that are acceptable for my preferences. Whenever Thomas and Lillian are having a sleepover with The Romano Duo (my Mom and Step-Father), I have a Team Member C movie night. You’ll be able to tell which are mine! I prefer the oldies!

I get most of our movies from the library. We have just about seen all of the appropriate movies the Washoe County library has available. So, sometimes I rent/stream from Amazon. I search for the $1.99 or $2.99 movies.

Here’s a fun and frugal tip! With Amazon Prime Membership you not only get free 2 day shipping, but you get access to unlimited streaming of 40,000 movies and tv episodes and you get to borrow books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library. My book is available there!

You can sign up for a 30 day free trial Amazon Prime membership and receive these benefits! Just remember to mark your calendar to cancel the membership BEFORE you get charged the yearly fee … unless you think it’s worth it to keep it.

Here ya go!

Movie Musings: The Treasure Seekers

June 4, 2011, was movie night for Team TLC. We have a Saturday tradition of watching a movie together in my bedroom making full use of this fancy projector I use for teaching my Social Media workshops.

We get our movies from our local library, South Valleys Library, so most of them are a few years old to really really old! Which actually adds to the adventure of it all in my eyes.  I love popping that DVD in, not knowing what it holds and at the same time knowing it will be 5 year old and 9 year old friendly.  Ya see, I just don’t much care for MANY of the new and newer movies – with a few exceptions.

The Treasure Seekers (amazon affiliate link) was my choice for us tonight.  It’s setting is English Victorian Age and this movie had me hooked from the moment it began.  I loved everything about it. I have not read the book of the same name authored by E. Nesbit; but from what I’ve seen on Amazon this film is loosely based on the book.  Fine by me as I adored this movie.  Thomas and Lillian both sat still and watched the entire movie.  And, actually, they are always happy with what I have chosen. Thomas was a tad bit disappointed as he thought they would literally be searching for treasure.

I saw some of my little family in the Bastable family. A single (widowed) entrepreneur/inventor dad with piles of unpaid bills.  In addition to an olden day loan shark who holds the mortgage on the Bastable home threatening to take the home in seven days. I found this movie to be very inspiring. In addition to holding a message to continue on the journey one has chosen no matter what others think or how uncomfortable it may get along the way. To have faith and NOT give up, especially when it seems that there are no options, choices or hope left.

The Bastable family worked with one another as a team – sometimes on the sly.  The kids were attempting to help Dad every second of the way. Even though throughout the movie their attempts backfired.

 

The Treasure Seekers is a family movie night must in my opinion. It gets 5 stars from me – family friendly, motivating, inspiring and FUN!
