Cozy Movie Night

Last night Mike and were chilling and staying warm as the weather outside was getting icy and icky. We thought we would watch a movie and as we were talking about what movie to watch, I found one on TV. The Upside of Anger with Kevin Costner, Joan Allen, and Keri Russell (to name a few) were in this movie.
It's a good movie if none of you have ever seen it! Mike actually liked it too. I always love Kevin Costner and have ALWAYS just LOVED Keri Russell! I used to watch Felicity ALL the time!! I'll have to do a post on Keri Russell another day - but lover her, she is so beautiful, naturally beautiful!

After that movie was over I continued to flip threw the channels when I found another one of my favorite movies . . . Coal Miner's Daughter - the true story of Loretta Lynn.

Some people may totally think this movie is weird, but I like it. I always love true stories about people and since I am from the South and like country music, I like this movie! Again, if you haven't seen this - watch it. It's really good! AND Sissy Spacek did a phenomenal job in this movie - she became Loretta Lynn. Tommy Lee Jones was amazing as well, playing Loretta's husband, "Do" - real name Dolittle Lynn, this name cracks me up! Loretta Lynn was ONLY 13 when she got married, WHOA and she was the mother of 4 by the time she was 20! Pretty gross and weird, but that was how it was back then. She had to grow up really fast, bless her heart. But she also did what she loved and became a country music icon. Basically this is a rags to riches story about a little 'ol country girl who becomes rich and famous, but is still, and always will be a little 'ol country girl.

After that, I was back to more channel surfing, when I caught the middle of another great movie that I haven't seen in a LONG time and actually not quite sure I have ever watched the whole thing - it was the movie ALWAYS.
I remember my parents always liking this movie. It is really good. Audrey Hepburn is also in this movie, she is older of course but you still know it's her. Boy did she age beautifully!
Mike was asleep at this point, poor thing. He couldn't stay up as late as I did, he was so tired after a long, hectic day at work. After this movie we finally went to bed, where I found ANOTHER great movie: Seabiscuit. I don't think I've ever watched this entire movie either. When Mike got in bed he was telling me how good this movie was. I watched some of it, but just couldn't stay awake. I am really wanting to watch the entire thing, so I am going to look to see if it's coming on TV again or will have to rent it. I know I would really enjoy this movie, plus it's a true story, which I always love!
So that was what I did last night. I was so glad that I found some good movies on TV. I always feel like when I am staying in and wanting to find some good movies on TV, I never do - but last night my luck changed. Hope everyone has a good weekend. I am still in my PJ's and may stay in them all day - why not? I love days like this!

I love Coal Miner's Daughter. It has a lot of funny parts in it, too. Have you ever seen Sweet Dreams with Jessica Lange as Patsy Cline? You would probably like that one too.
