#AMonthofFaves On the Screen – What did you watch this year that you absolutely loved and did you see any movies inspired by books you’ve read – what did you think.

Visit my cohorts in crime, Tanya, Kim, and Tamara!

I’m not a movie person. That is, I used to be a huuuuuge movie person. I even studied film in college and grad school, but these days, I have so many interests, unless I’m going to the movies it’s hard for me to sit down and watch something new. I’d rather have something old and well-loved running in the background that I can half pay attention to, if I’m being completely honest. 

Here’s what I’ve had on repeat lately: 

The Devil Wears Prada – Ahhh, Meryl Streep as an ice queen, Anne Hathaway as an ingénue, Stanley Tucci as….amazing. The glitzy clothes, the silly jokes, the tirade about the cerulean sweater. I love it all. 

The Muppet Christmas Carol – All. Time. Favorite. Not THE all-time favorite, but this one is definitely a fave since grade school. Did you know they cut out the “Love is Gone” song? Apparently when this one moved from VHS to DVD and streaming, they cut it out! I hated that song, so I’m totally fine with it. 

The cover of the Austenland film with Keri Russell standing in a sunlit field holding a white tote bag with the black and pink text "I heart Mr. Darcy.

Austenland – Exception to the rule! This is not an old favorite yet, since I just watched it for the first time a week or two ago. I had it running on Vudu while I graded final essays, and I LOVED IT. I held out because I had every intention of reading the book first, but that never happened, so I went on and fell in love with this silly-cute movie. 

Most assuredly, Greyson, David, and I will see a movie over the Christmas break. Right now G. is leaning toward Into the Spider-Verse or the new Grinch movie. I have my fingers crossed for the Grinch!

We can’t wait to find out what you’ve been watching!
