Now to come up with some tasty but low-calorie treats to consume while viewing; the days of mini candy bars throughout the month are over.


  1. I like the concept of this! But that's a LOT of movies!! Are all of these available Instantly or are you getting them delivered??
    Is there also "Romantic Comedy" month and "Action/Adventure" month? I love the way Netflix recommends a genre called, "Witty foreign dramas featuring a strong female lead."

    1. Ha, I like that genre too, I should look those up.

      We toyed with having a "Classic Movie Month" last year but it kind of fizzled out. The Dude loves all things Halloween and introduced me to Scary Movie Month when we first got together; since then it's become one of my favorite parts of the year. Typically we only manage to get through 15-20, and that's with a lot of hard work and dedication. We do have them delivered. We won't end up watching them in the order listed here, that ends up getting shuffled as the month goes on. But I give full reports each week so you'll see.
