Halloween Movies to Watch on Netflix

movies to watch on netflix on halloween

Movies to watch for Halloween. It’s Halloween!  Which is one of the best times of year, if you ask me.  Any excuse to dress up as your favorite _________ (fill in the blank), party with friends + family, and eat candy is a-okay with me. As an adult the very best kind of Halloween for me is one where I get to stay home, wear a wig or comfortable  stretchy-pants costume of some kind, and watch a good Halloween movie. …

Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls, 5 reasons you need to be watching right now. Have you ever watched the TV show Gilmore Girls?  I’ll admit, I was late to the game, but there was no turning back once I started. I got into the series in about 2004 when the series was already 4 seasons deep.  The reason I initially started watching, (aside from the raving recommendations from friends) is that one of the main characters, Rory, attends a highly snooty private prep…

The Odysseo Cavalia Horse Show


Have you seen the show, Odysseo Cavalia? If you have, you’ll know the show is far more than just well trained horses parading around on stage.  It’s a spectacular mix of magical horsemanship, beautiful animals, circus acts, goose-bump-inducing dancing, and live music.

10 popcorn summer movies to watch on Netflix this summer! Every year when I was a kid, a small movie theater in my town did a series of kids summer movies for the masses of wiggly children home for the summer.  For a really nominal price, something like $1/movie and $1.50 for a movie AND treats, bored kids swarmed the theater all summer long.  The theater sold packages to elementary schools, and on every Tuesday and Wednesday there were two…
