This Year in Movies: August

With most of the summer shows over and my crochet habit in full swing it seems I've found some time to watch some things.... er 17 movies and 9 tv shows on dvd to be exact!

Degrassi: TNG Season 1 - Over the years I've had a friend mention Degrassi every now and again, I even caught a few early episodes some random weekend on some random tv channel. Recently John mentioned it to me and I figured now is the time to really watch it... and watch I did. Basically I'm obsessed. It's definitely a great show to crochet to!

Degrassi: TNG Season 2 - I really love seeing how all the kids grow up, and how they look a bit older every year. Also love seeing how they change the opening credits every season or two!

Degrassi: TNG Season 3 - Yup, not nearly done for this month!

Dear John - I thought the ending of this one was interesting, a bit different than the other Nicolas Sparks movies I've seen. I love both of the leads so it was fun to watch.

Degrassi: TNG Season 4 - And still watching....

She's Out of My League - This was a fluffy little movie. Sort of when the Beauty Meet the Geek.

TiMER - I had my eye on this movie for years! I love the idea of it, timers implanted in people's wrists that tell them when they are going to meet "the one" for the most part it definitely lived up to my expectations. Not sure if I totally liked the ending though.

Brief Interviews with Hideous Men - Ugh, didn't like this. I wanted to since John Krasinski directed it but it was not my thing at all.

Hey Hey It's Esther Blueburger - This movie was totally cute and very original, I really liked it. I started checking out some movies on Netflix Instant view (like the above two) and this was one that was recommended based on other stuff I had watched and I totally liked it!

Youth in Revolt - I love Michael Cera but was sort of afraid I might not like this movie based on the trailer, but it turned out to be just quirky enough and not too over the top like I feared. Good stuff.

Arranged - What a beautiful movie. The friendship between an Orthodox Jewish woman and a Muslim woman that both teach at the same school, I just adored it!

According to Greta - This was a Hilary Duff movie I had heard about, turned out to be pretty good!

Dakota Skye - Random Indie about this girl that knows the truth when people tell lies. Kind of a funny concept.

The Babysitters - This sort of dark and weird movie about babysitters that do more than take care of kids.

Falling Up - I loved the premise of this, a doorman and a girl that lives in the building, fall for each other. I just loved seeing what happens in a building lobby! It starred the guy from Running with Scissors!

Step p 2: The Streets - After watching SYTYCD all summer and hearing about Step Up 3 over and over again, I realized I hadn't seen the second movie! I love dancing movies!

The Neighbor - This was like the month of gimmicky movies, this one was about two neighbors, one trying to get rid of the other and in the end they realize they kind of like one another.

Degrassi: TNG Season 5 - And we are back!

Glee Vol 1 - Have to start getting ready for Season 2. I also watched it to see how the book, Glee: The Beginning jives with the pilot. It sort of did and sort of didn't.

Shutter Island - Ugh. What a waste of time. I was expecting some awesome twist at the end, but it was the most obvious ending. The first thing you think of when you hear about the movie.

Blue State - This was a rather interesting movie, people moving to Canada after Bush won for the second time.

How to Be - Another R. Patz movie. I thought the beginning to the middle was good and then it just got weird at the end.

Degrassi: TNG Season 6 - Yup.

Secret Life of the American Teenager Vol 4 - Why am I still watching this?

Loverboy - 80s movie with Patrick Demsey. Like The Babysitters, it's about a pizza delivery boy that delivers more than pizza.

Degrassi: TNG Season 7 - Oh yeah, and I'm onto Season 8 already.

What did you watch in August you really liked? Have you ever watched Degrassi?


  1. Degrassi is one of my favorite shows! Glad you're enjoying it from the beginning.

    You'll have to go back and watch Degrassi Junior High/Degrassi High once you're finished.

  2. I'm so totally out of it! I haven't seen any of these (should I even admit that?)

  3. Keri- My thoughts exactly!

    Beth F- Nah, most of these I didn't hear of until recently, well except for the tv shows. A lot were from Netflix Instant view.

  4. Ah I love Degrassi so much! I like the older crowd better than the new kids (ugh, I loved Craig with the passion of my entire soul) but I still try to keep up with them. I love that they put actual teenagers on the show to play the high schoolers, instead of 25-year-olds, like we do in America.

  5. Never watched Degrassi-maybe I need to! I need to add a lot of these to my Netflix instand view-I've seen several of these suggestions. I've got Timer in there now-I've wanted to see that since you blogged about it forever ago!:)

  6. Love Love LOVE Degrassi! One of my favorite shows. I watch The Kids of Degrassi Street when I was way younger, and I have the Jr. High and TNG shows on DVD. Can't wait for the new season to start this fall! (Oh, and yeah, I'm too afraid to admit this to anyone in person)

  7. Yeah! I knew there had to be more Degrassi fans out there! I'm already on Season 9, soon I'll be all caught up!
