Netflix Rentals

The Jane Austen Book Club - I really don't know what made me decide to add this movie to our queue because it took me three times to read Pride and Prejudice. The plot revolves around six members of a book club. Basically, their lives start to resemble different novels written by Jane Austen. My favorite part was when they actually meet for their book club. Maybe it is the English teacher in me, but I just loved listening to their different perspectives about the same novel. In the end, I decided to read some more Jane Austen.

Into the Wild - This movie is a true story about a young man who gives up everything to lead a solitary life trekking through the Alaskan wilderness. I won't give anything else away about the plot, but this is one movie that you won't forget. I'm still thinking about what that young man learned on his journey. Happiness is best when shared.

How did our parent's survive without Netflix? Receiving a Netflix in the mail is like the first spring day or maybe even Chrsitmas morning...okay maybe I'm getting a little carried away. ;-)

When Nate walks in the door after a long day, I whisper (over the chaos) "We have a Netflix." He smiles and we both know that after the boys are asleep we can spend some time together and enjoy a flick. Who needs a sitter?

I have no idea how they survived. We love it. Matt loves not having to go to the movie store only to find the movie he wanted is not available. I love that we can get three movies. It usually comes down to one movie that only I will watch (a chick flick as Matt says) and then two that we will watch together.
