Watch | Read | Listen {February 2014}

First month of the year gone! Well that was fast, wasn't it? Did you guys see any movies last month? I saw Saving Mr. Banks and Jack Ryan with my family, and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by myself. I would recommend all of them for different reasons -- Saving Mr. Banks and Walter Mitty were emotional, human, and hopeful, and Jack Ryan was a smart action movie. 

A Fantastic Fear of Everything
Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children's author who becomes a crime novelist, but researching Victorian serial killers turns him into a paranoid wreck, who is afraid of being murdered. When a Hollywood executive takes an interest in Jack's story, his big break turns into a big breakdown. (February 7)

The Monuments Men
Based on a true story, this action drama follows seven museum directors, artists, architects, curators, and art historians, who went into the front lines of WWII to rescue the world's masterpieces from Nazi thieves. Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, and Hugh Bonneville. (February 7)

Winter's Tale
Based on the novel by Mark Helprin, this magical story is about Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), a thief in New York City, who falls in love with Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), who is dying. Peter is driven to stop time and bring back the dead. Also starring Jennifer Connelly, Russell Crowe, and William Hurt. (February 14)

Welcome to Yesterday
A group of teenage friends create a time machine after realizing that one of them can be seen in a home video of his own 7th birthday, but as a teen. They make the machine and time jump in order to make their lives better, but it has startling and scary repercussions. (Check out the trailer.) (February 28)

  1. It's been such a long time since I've actually seen a movie in the theater! I just rented We Are the Millers and it was absolutely hilarious.

    The Tiny Heart

  2. I really want to see Winter's Tale!


  3. I very much want to see Monuments Men. It seems so intriguing. Plus, that cast!


  4. i really want to see winter's tale, but i want to read it it may be a dvd movie for me!

  5. I'm so behind on seeing movies... The Monuments Men is top of my list now!

  6. I really want to see Monuments Men, it's exactly the kind of story I love - action, adventure and just a little bit of romance, too!

  7. Since my nighttime job is at Family Video, I usually just wait for movies to come out on DVD so I can just rent them for free (I'm still in cheap college-kid mode) but I REALLLLLY want to see Monuments Men so I might break that rule just this once lol


  8. nothing's jumping out at me this month, I guess I'll be saving my money instead.

  9. I would usually wait to see movies on DVD if I got to see it for free, but now and then it's always nice to break a rule! :)

  10. I was thinking the same! The big is rather long, so it might take me a little white to read it!


Hello, beautiful! Thanks for leaving a comment!
Have a lovely day!
