This Year In Movies: November

This month I watched 5 movies and 4 tv seasons on dvd!

Friday Night Lights Season 1- As I talked about in my FNL devoted post, I didn't exactly love it when I started watching but held on and about halfway through season 1 I WAS HOOKED.

Art and Copy- Really interesting. Reminded me of the format of Helvetica which I liked slightly better but it was still very interesting. About the Advertising Industry.

Friday Night Lights Season 2- The beginning of the season started off with a few weird plot lines but it was still good and shook off that weirdness about halfway through.

New Moon- About the same as the book, my least favorite. "Jacob" definitely shined though.

Friday Night Lights Season 3- Goooood. Just watch it, seriously.

Up- Really cute. I especially liked the beginning, wasn't expecting how cute it was! I think the Incredibles is still my favorite Pixar movie though.

The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Season 1- This was perfectly brought from the page to the screen. The books were always a little slow for me so I think they actually work better on tv. It's sad to hear it might not be continuing. I guess we will see. I loved the 7 episodes in Season 1.

Revolutionary Road- Um ok, really depressing. It was different that I thought it would be but it was still interesting. I liked Kate Winslet's other movie from that year, The Reader a lot more.

Fantastic Mr. Fox- This movie was pure Wes Anderson despite it being animated. All his trademarks and quirks were still visible! Loved it!


  1. Great movies/tv!

    FNL is awesome!!!!
    And I really want to see Up & Fantastic Mr Fox! :)

  2. I've heard some excellent things about Mr. Fox. Wes Anderson is one of my favorite directors. Hope to get to this one while it's in theaters.

  3. I loved the dogs in Up but overall, I thought the movie was kind of sad.

  4. I spent most of November getting caught up on all the TV shows that I've been neglecting for almost a year.

  5. I am so hooked on FNL it's absurd. And I can't stand football.

    I would really like to see No. 1 Ladies - I will have to put that on my list.

  6. I guess I am a little "behind" as I didn't realize that "The No 1 Lady detective" was published internationally . . . It was shown on our local satelite TV and we enjoyed it very much :)

  7. I am so glad you felt that way about New Moon. I didn't like the book either (that one and Breaking Dawn were painful to get through!) and I thought the movie was slow and long. Jacob did great though-he's the only one who can really act I think.
