Guest Post- Movie Recommendations

Hey-howdy-hey T.O.T.E. readers! No, this is not Caitlin, but her sister Jessie, writing a guest post about who knows what. I swear, Caitlin asked me to do this! I have not committed a sisterly coup upon her awesome blog.


I’m a bit of a movie fiend. Well, fanatic is a better descriptor. I often compare my life to the silver screen, however unrealistic this has made my expectations of life, men and the capabilities of the human body (I practiced dodging bullets Neo-style way too many times in the mirror). My world-view is filtered through some twisted, 3-D, rose-colored glasses.

Anyhoo, Caitlin asked me to make some movie recomindations, and since I don’t quite know who reads Cait’s blog, I’ve made one for practically every interest type. To avoid my propensity towards novel-like blog posts, I’ve given myself a ten word limit on each description. Let’s see how I do. Warning- these aren’t all new releases, nor are they all movies. They’re just shows I’ve watched recently that are well done, enjoyable and worth watching.
